The Greek word catalogs, which can be translated as "list" , came to Latin as catalŏgus. That's where the term comes from Catalogue : a registry that presents, in an orderly manner, descriptions and general data of individuals, objects, documents or other things that maintain some kind of link with each other.
For example: "I will see in the catalog if we have a book by that author", "According to the catalog, these pants are available in black, white, blue and green", “For years I lived on the income I obtained thanks to the sale by catalog”.
The catalogs are intended to facilitate access to a certain element. A library , to cite a case, you can have a digital catalog with information about his books, including the location of each copy. Thus, when a person asks about the availability of a book, the librarian can consult the catalog to find out if the work in question is part of the library and where it is deposited.
Many shops also have catalogs to search for their products . These catalogs can be delivered to potential buyers so that they themselves know the commercial offer of the establishment. A manufacturer of cell phones (mobile) can distribute catalogs with all its models, prices and how to buy them.
This type of commercial catalog must be established that it becomes an essential element for companies and commercials that sell their products. Specifically, in that document, in order to achieve the best results, the following aspects that we indicate must be collected:
-Photographs of each and every product must appear.
-In the same way, each product must contain a brief description. Specifically, it must collect from its composition to its dimensions through details of what is the manufacturing process, the color ...
However, depending on the type of article you can also include diagrams and drawings of the article, graphics on the functions performed, instructions for assembly, after-sales service that exists ...
More and more companies do not hesitate to have a digital catalog. If they do, it is because they consider that it has a long list of advantages, among which we highlight the following:
-It is easier, faster and more effective to reach the client and, in addition, to a greater number of clients. And any of these can be consulted online.
-Gives the possibility of entering more information of each article.
- It supposes a saving of time and money for the client because he will not have to go to the physical store itself to see the products. You can directly see and consult them at home through a computer, tablet or mobile phone.
-In addition, the visual impact is stronger on the client.
There is a commercial modality, on the other hand, which is known as catalog sale . It is a system based on the delivery of catalogs for the buyer to select the products and request them by telephone or Internet . After placing the order and defining the payment method, the person receives his purchase at his address.
