When creating your first catalog, you will need to think carefully about what types of products you would like to include, because you most certainly want to ensure that your catalog is professional and accurate the first time before investing a lot of money and time into a catalog that proves to be unsuccessful.
Before creating your catalog, you would need to consider a few things like shipping costs, ease of packing, consumer desirability, pricing issues and ease of ordering.
You certainly do not want to create a catalog blindly and just start distributing it before considering costs and before you even know if your products are desirable enough to generate enough profits to justify the printing fees.
Cost for creating and printing catalogs can get quite expensive, so before investing even one minute of your time or even one cent of your money in creating one, you want to make sure that it’s created properly and professionally.
The first step in creating your catalog would be to first decide how many pages you’d like for your catalog to have and then decide just how many products you would like to provide on each page.
Some people like to add just one product per page, while others find that listing three products per page is more profitable.
Based on past catalog sales experience, I have found that a combination of both has proven to be extremely successful for my own business.
When designing my catalogs, I usually devote the inside front page cover to one product, usually my best selling product at that particular time, then I will include a mixture of two and three products per page throughout the rest of the catalog.
With the first half of the catalog providing two products per page of my top sellers, and the later half providing three products per page of good selling items.
This gives me more room for product descriptions for my best selling items, while still allowing a bit of room for products that have sold in the past, but that haven’t sold as well as others.
If you don’t have a best selling product yet, or if you’re just starting out and haven’t had time to determine your top sellers, then you may want to consider initially using brochures instead of a full catalog so that you can get an idea of what types of products will do best in your catalog.
You can create a simple four-page brochure using just one sheet of folded paper, and print enough brochures to get a good determination of your best selling products, before deciding if that particular product should be included in your catalog.
You can easily fit 4 or 5 products in a simple brochure, while providing a simple order form on the back to make ordering easy for your customers.
Once you’ve decided which products you’d like to include in your catalog (or brochure) then you will want to consider the shipping problems you might encounter.
A lot of your catalog sales will probably require shipping, especially if you decide to take your catalog sales nationwide (which isn’t that hard to do online), and you will want to make sure that your shipping process runs as smoothly as possible.
For example, if you sell a wooden doll bed for $50.00 that weighs 25 pounds, then it may not be feasible to try and sell it through a catalog if it requires another $25.00 just to ship it to your customer.
Your doll bed would not only cost a lot to ship, but you would also have to invest in expensive packing materials to guarantee its safe arrival as well, and this can become quite a burden if you have a lot of orders to fill...
