Building an Effective Catalog

About this product:

A properly executed catalog is more than just a list of products accompanied by pretty pictures. An effective consumer catalog, such as an effective salesperson, should show customers not just what to buy but also why they should buy. Everything should be an enticement to purchase the product that brought the customer to the catalog—and to sell related products. Catalogs can upsell almost as effectively as top employees.

Best Practices: OEMs Working With SEMA Companies

About this product:

This is the first in a series of SEMA News stories based on the idea of “Best Practices”—the use of reliable and repeatable methods to ensure business success. In coming issues, we will delve into topics ranging from digital and traditional marketing to employer/employee relations, from getting the most out of trade shows to exploring global distribution. In each case, we will point the way to overcoming what the American Productivity & Quality Center has identified as one of three major hurdles to developing Best Practices: lack of knowledge. And we hope to help in conquering the other two: lack of motivation and lack of skills.
