E-commerce has definitely changed the approach between products and buyers. The customer journey has nowadays become virtual in most cases, from product knowledge through digital ads and online marketplaces, to checkout.
The physical catalogue is as important now as it has always been, always and in any case an integral part of many companies' marketing strategies.
Print catalogues remain an effective tool for establishing a solid brand identity and a powerful channel for communication strategies to increase sales. They give potential customers a deeper engagement level and build longer-lasting relationships between buyers and products.
