Let’s talk about the directory site. If you want to present your range of goods and services with a detailed description. Then this type of site is for you.
Catalog site is a site with a large number of pages and sections where you can place all your goods, products, gallery. Best of all, a catalog site is suitable for a list of services. It will not provide the opportunity to buy on the site as in the online store. Such sites are usually suitable for auctions, art galleries, museums, art studios, architectural trends, furniture companies, supply companies, restaurants for displaying menus, displaying portfolios, etc. On the catalog website, you can present your assortment, and sell from the office, store, or over the phone.
By ordering the development of a catalog site, you can save time on consultations, as the site will contain a detailed description of your goods and services, printing products, etc. Also, the information presented on the catalog site can save you money on printing catalogs, flyers, menus, price lists.
What are typical pages for a catalog site?
When creating a catalog site, we most often develop such pages as:
- catalogue main page;
- about the company;
- activity information;
- catalogue of various products;
- detailed, niche services;
- prices with prices;
- contact details.
You can also place additional options and functions on the catalog site, such as:
- booking form;
- subscription and mailing list;
- connection of payment services, if there is a section with a paid subscription.
The difference between an online store and a catalog site
What is the difference between online store and catalogue website? The only difference is that the online store has a buy button and the ability to pay online. Here you already need to understand what goods and services this resource is intended for, which is why the first stage of developing a catalog site is so important – designing a prototype and studying a niche.
For example, a construction company needs a catalog site, because you can view a house that is for sale on the site, familiarize yourself with the layout, see detailed photos, read what materials it is built from, but the client will not want to buy house online without seeing it live.
That’s why we don’t need a buy button here. You just get acquainted with this house, you will learn everything in detail, look and, if the conditions suit you, you will go to buy it personally. But you can buy a vacuum cleaner without any problems on the site. Pay and wait for the courier. Which site you need depends on the type of your activity, as well as individual wishes.
Catalog site may differ from an online store by specially designed functionality, professional galleries for user convenience, sliders, animation and other creative solutions. A more convenient site navigation can also be thought out.
