Keep reading to find out steps your B2B business should consider when designing a personalized digital catalog.

Keep it personalized

Business-to-business product selling does best when a personalized customer experience is implemented. Meaning, what one company chooses to purchase is not the same as what another business will buy. So, rather than creating a generic, one-size-fits-all catalog for all buyers, hone in on creating customized catalogs.  

Businesses can accomplish this in several different ways, and below we have outlined three of the most effective methods.

Client-specific product assortments:

Now that you have high resolution product images, now is the time to ensure that your digital catalog solution allows buyers to easily view the products they buy most frequently. Customizing your catalog for each business will also ensure that clients only view items that have been approved by management to purchase. Filters put in place ensure greater visibility of the products important to them and reduce buyer frustrating as they won’t be forced to search through thousands of items that are not applicable to them. 

Client-specific pricing:

More specifically, you may also choose to set different pricing tiers or promotional offers/incentives for each client, so ensure that your digital catalog displays the specific pricing for that particular customer. Be sure to update the pricing regularly so that old pricing or expired promotional codes don’t frustrate clients. 
Setting specific pricing on digital catalogs also help your reps so that they don’t have to memorize complex pricing structures. Accurate, customer-specific pricing also significantly speeds up fulfillment times, as orders are less prone to errors. Remember that pricing should always be transparent so that buyers don’t have to jump through hoops to find out the price of each item. 

Access to order history:

Ensure that your digital catalog is properly storing previous purchases of your clients. Doing this gives your customers the ability to duplicate past orders and upsell or cross-sell opportunities according to buyer preferences, leading to a better customer experience. 

All of the recommended steps above are provided to help make the customer experience better for buyers. Easily viewing relatable products, having customized pricing, and access to past orders are all things that will save time for clients and will ultimately increase sales.
