Publish Catalog

Catalog Publishing is important for catalog distribution to target viewers and CatalogBuilder facilitates multiple mode of catalog publishing.

  • Slide Show Album ( using slide show builder)

  • Web Catalog (for uploading and display on website as web gallery or complete web site with product gallery and advanced features like site search, selection basket, slide show, viewer's friendly catalog navigation etc)

  • Multimedia CD Catalog or Multimedia CD Photo Album

For Effective Publishing of Catalog:

  • User must clearly identify catalog's objective, target audience and time duration for which it will be used.

  • User must distinctly identify distribution mode (e.g. electronic  display at trade shows, web publishing or multimedia CD driven display etc)

  • User must carefully plan catalog building (theme, design setting, catalog items, catalog contents etc) to suit its publishing objective.

How should user choose publishing mode and catalog features ?

  • In the event, the catalog needs to be displayed as auto run presentation at user's showroom or display area (in  trade show or trade exhibition or showroom etc), then it is recommended to choose slide show album. Such album can then be run on large screens using projector / TV or can be run on display monitors connected with their computers etc. Visitors get to see the album view and then can meet sales representative for more enquiries.

  • In the event, catalog is to be widely displayed and user is intending to use world wide web (WWW) for its display, then user may build web catalog. Such web catalog will have standard web pages (e.g. gateway page, contact page, company profile page etc) along with product gallery driven catalog (with catalog features user may opt from design setting while building / managing catalog). Such web catalog can be easily published on web and then can be submitted on search engines for wider audience.

  • In the event, Catalog is to be displayed to selected audience (customers and/or prospects, selected target market, sales campaign etc) for trade lead generation, then it is recommended to build electronic catalog for Multimedia CD distribution as multimedia CD brochure or multimedia CD catalog.

What is difference between Web Catalog and Multimedia CD Catalog in terms of Catalog building and publishing ?

  • Entire catalog building and publishing process is same for both the publishing mode except for few features:

    • Multimedia CD Catalog will have auto run files, which will initialize default index page (as gateway page) upon, CD insertion into disc media.

    • Web Catalog normally does not carry slide show option, so user may decide accordingly from design setting window, prior to publishing.

    • Web Catalog may require little more attention to image tags while building its catalog, for search engine optimization related needs.

    •  In the event, you are requiring to sell online, web catalog may be configured to connect to payment gateway (CatalogBuilder does not have inbuilt facility, however, we offer this facility as free services upon your request).

    • It is not recommended to use music files on catalog slide shows for web catalog.
