Your offer should be such that it is found valuable by your customers and profitable by you. A limited offer can get you quicker responses from your customers out of the fear of missing the offer.
Include a respond panel
You can ask your brochure design expert to turn a part of your pamphlet into a response card, where prospective customers can include their contact information, list their names, any information that they would like to collect from you and then give it back to you.
