TEXT MOBILE TO 888999: Mobile and The Market Research World
By Nina Nichols
In 2013, mobile devices outsold laptops and desktops for the first time. In fact, in many countries consumers spend more time on their mobile device than any other, which has interesting implications for how market research can and should be conducted in today’s world.
Knowing how to reach your market is the first step to gaining insight and knowledge about what they are looking for in a product or service. New research has shown that people are 33% more alert when they are in an out-of-home environment. According to one study*, people are 28% more likely to take action with an outside ad compared to ads in any other media and that “outdoor ads drove considerably more mobile search as well.”
What does this mean for market research and advertising?
The increased use of mobile means that now, more than ever, consumers can be reached when they are at their most alert and responsive. Companies who know how to tap into this will be able to gain insight that would be difficult or impossible to gain otherwise, and connect to users when they are most open to offers and ads. Resolution Research® has developed mobile strategies that easily and conveniently connect with mobile users using an SMS or app campaign.
