You'd be surprised to find out how many people are using their smartphones in-store, and even more so what they use them for.

E-catalogs are great for boosting your conversion rates, but they’re useless if no one can visit them. To really get the most out of your digital catalogs, you’ll need to drive traffic to them. We know that traffic generation can be tricky, so we decided to write a series on our blog about how you can distribute your digital catalogs to increase your pageviews.
