THE SMART (PHONE) SHOPPER

in Mobile

A great new infographic and research from IDC finds 70% of shoppers planning to use the combination of Always On mobile research and Always Connected social network sharing to better inform their mobility-dominated decision journey. And with upwards of 20% of shoppers buying from a retail competitor while in store, retailers have much work to do to combat consumer promiscuity with personalized, real time valuable marketing and messaging.
