A company could utilize a catalog with seasonal products or feel the need to fully align contents to the buying behavior of the consumer. For example, you can provide new customers with a full catalog, while existing customers receive a thinner update with only new products.
Another option is to switch to publishing several editions of a catalogue throughout the year, instead of an annual one. By smartly deciding when your clients should hear from you, you can reach your customers multiple times a year.
