ReapTheChaos: "Marketers say that people who browse catalogues buy more than those who shop only online."Because it's a lot easier to thumb through a catalog and see all their available products, neatly arraigned by category. Try that on a website, not so much fun. I don't care how advanced their search engine is, you inevitably end up with a bunch of irrelevant crap showing up.
Weng: I work in the print industry. Periodically we'll get absurd requests from our customers to do outright absurd things.One of our products is a personalized Healthcare provider directory. For one very specific plan in one very specific area, our client had a data problem. Rather than fixing it, they had us mail a bunch of elderly people directories containing every doctor in the state of California.Each directory came in six separate boxes, each box containing several volumes, each volume as thick as we could manufacture.I assume we were involved in this.
Fuggin Bizzy: How do I get whoever-it-is to stop leaving phone books on my front step? If I go to their website and leave feedback, will they figure out that I have access to Internet, which has phone directories?
Rapmaster2000: I got that thing. Their stuff makes Crate and Barrel look like a discount. I don't see the value.
qlenfg: Makes the McMaster-Carr and Mouser catalog look like a Vegas strip club / call girl brochure.
