How Catalogs
Can Make You
Successful

Sell to a large market.  U.S. catalog sales are now well over $150 billion a year.  Sales on websites have also cracked $150 billion a year.  Approximately 70% of all consumers have bought something through catalogs or websites in the last 12 months.  With the right product a company can go from zero to several million in sales -- just through mail order.

Compete more easily. 
Catalogs offer a level playing field for the big corporation and the smallest start-up.  With few exceptions, products are judged and sell on their merits, not on the reputation of the manufacturer.

All you need is one. 
Unlike store distribution, manufacturers don't need a "line" of products.  Catalogs evaluate one product at a time.  So the one-product company is not at a disadvantage as they are when trying to get shelf space in a large store chain.

Save on packaging. 
Unlike point-of-purchase sales where the package must help sell the product on the store shelf, the package has no bearing on the sales of an item in a catalog or on a website.  So you don't need an expensive 4-color box.  In fact, the simpler the packaging the better.  A sealed plastic bag is often sufficient.

Keep your risk low. 
A few catalogs now require a nominal "advertising allowance" to sell your product.  However, many catalogs still charge nothing to advertise your product.

Get national exposure. 
Catalogs offer start-ups and small companies exposure to millions of potential customers.  When your product appears in a recognized catalog, your product and your company enjoy instant credibility.

Test the market.  Catalogs provide an ideal opportunity to find out how well your product sells.  In addition, when you place your product in specific niche catalogs, you can test different segments of the marketplace.  Naturally success in catalogs can lead to success in other marketing avenues.
