Thinking Of Publishing A Catalog For Your Retail Business?

Connecting to your customers is the most important thing you’ll do you in your day, but in this age of increasingly technology-driven sales, it can be hard to stand out from the competition.

It may seem like an old-fashioned concept, but product catalogs are still a great way to leave a big impression. Unlike a website that your customers can easily forget, a catalog gives them a tangible reminder of your business every time they pick it up.

Printing Fulfillment Services Set You Free

Even if you hire a print shop to put your catalog together, you’ll still going to have to spend a lot of time addressing and mailing it out — that’s time you could spend interacting with customers. Luckily, you don’t have to choose between your customers and your catalog if you hire a full-service logistics company that offers literature fulfillment. In fact, many offer printing fulfillment services and have full-service printing options should you want to build your catalog from scratch.

While you’re busy building your customer base, you can leave the catalog to your fulfillment partner. They’ll scour your mailing list to catch any bad addresses and remove customers who don’t want to be on your mailing list, saving both time and money. Plus, their strategic relationships with various shippers means that your catalog mailings will ship using the best combination of affordable and efficient services.

Other Benefits of Full-Service Fulfillment

Of course, hiring a full service fulfillment partner also means you’ll have access to a complete customer service department. Instead of taking care of catalog orders yourself, these trained professionals will take and place orders, answer product questions and handle frustrated customers and complaints. They can also, if you so choose, deal with the returns process from start to finish.

In fact, catalog fulfillment can include as many or as few services as you’d like — after all, you’re still in control of the process. Contracting a full service logistics partner to print your full color glossy catalogs and ship them out quickly may be all the help you really need, especially if your catalog recipients tend to go to your website to place their orders on their own.

A great choice, with or without a website. Catalogs are the perfect way to connect with your customers physically in an age where technology is increasingly making the world intangible. Stay in the front of your customers’ minds by providing them something they can hold on to, and even flip through from time to time. The catalog is back in a big way and it’s the perfect tool to drive sales to your business.
