Flyer To Get Attention At Conference For M.B.A.

This is a two page letter found at a trade show. Side one, written in magic marker, says "PLEASE TURN OVER!" Side two is below.

I found this handout on the information table at a convention. When I saw "Please turn me over" stamped in big black letters on a white sheet of paper, I couldn't resist. I turned the page and found this letter. The gimmick was good. I read the letter. It's short--that's a plus. But it's a bit too much "Here's what I want, here's what I need." It's too cold. When you're asking strangers to help, you need to be cordial. You need to give them a "reason why." Something offbeat like this might work if it were better written.
