Catalog Drivers

December 9, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Lois Brayfield, President of J. Schmid, and Catalog University Dean of Creative, has all sorts of ideas you can use as catalog drivers.

The Changing Role of a Catalog

In recent years, more brands have discovered the power of mailing a catalog. But we aren’t talking about “old school” catalogs meant to showcase all of your products and then calling it a “channel.” Instead, think of catalogs as a powerful medium created to disrupt, delight and most importantly, DRIVE! Successful catalogs have the ability to drive customers and prospects to your website and your store. In this example-packed session, you’ll hear how brands have evolved their catalog to drive sales; no matter the channel in which customers choose to shop.

In this Pub session, you’ll learn how catalogs must:

–          DISRUPT customers and prospects lives by grabbing attention.

–          DELIGHT readers with stories and themes that matter.

–          DRIVE customers and prospects to a website or store with calls-to-action that work!
