LOS ALTOS, Calif., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Catalog Spree, the personal digital mall that lets consumers browse, discover and shop their favorite brands, today released a number of year-end milestones that show tremendous growth in 2013, including a 53 percent increase in catalogs read. During 2013, shoppers have read more than eight million catalogs on Catalog Spree's shopping app. This year's growth can be attributed to a number of factors, including new app personalization features, a new iPhone app, an advertising partnership with Google, and the creation of Spree Studio, the company's all-digital publication platform that can create digital lookbooks and catalogs for nearly any retail brand in just hours.
With more than 350 full-page digital catalogs and lookbooks, Catalog Spree makes shopping fun and easy by letting consumers shop on an iPad or iPhone. Additional milestones from this year include:
- More than one million digital catalogs distributed in a single month (November 2013)
- Digital catalogs published increased by 67 percent
- Catalog page views topped 500,000,000
- Products clicked on from a catalog increased by 24 percent
- The number of wish lists created doubled in 2013
- Top brands shopped were One Kings Lane, Sundance and Neiman Marcus
"Catalog Spree has seen an incredible amount of growth and success in 2013, but what we've seen is only the beginning," said Joaquin Ruiz, CEO of Catalog Spree. "With annual tablet sales set to outpace PC sales for the first time next year -- and for the first quarter ever in Q4 2013 -- we are at the tipping point of when consumers will be spending most of their shopping time on mobile devices. And now that Catalog Spree can act as a digital catalog publisher, distributor and aggregator of retail catalogs on mobile devices, ads and the web, we have the holy trifecta necessary to be at the center of it all."
