According to a study by FGI Research, commissioned by the American Catalog Mailers Association, two out of three consumers who receive a catalog in the mail will peruse it.Catalogues are Still Important to Customers

2012-11-27

While their actual order-placing method of choice is shifting to online, 58% of the 817 respondents said they look at catalogues as soon as they are received, with 92% indicating they have made a purchase from the catalogues.


While 26% of respondents value the unique assortment of goods catalogues offer the most, other popular reasons include ease of shopping (24%), convenience (22%), previewing future purchases (18%), and gathering product information (16%).


ACMA said the study largely dispels the notion of some that catalogues are becoming unnecessary in a digital world. Two-thirds of the survey’s respondents said that if catalogues were to become too expensive for the catalogue companies to mail unsolicited, they would pro-actively request them.
