The comparatively lower costs of on-line catalogs, compared to print catalogs requiring paper, printing, and postage, lowers the entry barriers to catalog selling. A great difference between on- line catalog and print catalog selling is that on-line catalog customers find the marketer rather than the marketer finding them. Consequently, on-line catalog customers tend to differ demographically and in purchase behavior from print catalog customers. On-line catalogs give the marketer worldwide exposure, 24-hour accessibility, and the ability to quickly change price and product. In addition to selling, on-line catalogs are used to increase brand awareness, increase product usage, generate print catalog requests, collect prospect addresses and demographics, and provide two-way communication with customers.
