Last month Econsultancy surveyed 2,000 consumers in the UK and 2,000 consumers in the US, to unearth attitudes to multichannel shopping and service. The survey was compiled using the TolunaQuick tool.

We found that there are a lot of similarities, but also some distinct differences in consumer behaviour in the UK and US...


Exploding screen strategies

Conversations about three screen strategies became conversations about four screen strategies this year. It looked like tablets would be used concurrently with PCs and mobiles, at least for a while, so fashionable jargon received an update.

How can retailers appeal to mobile users in store?

The use of mobile phones for offline shopping has increased dramatically over the past few years, and even if consumers aren’t actually making a purchase with their mobiles, they are often using them to research products and prices while shopping.

According to a recent Toluna / Econsultancy survey of UK consumers, 13% of respondents had made a purchase on their mobiles, and 19% had used them to compare prices and look at product reviews while out shopping.

So what can retailers do to adapt to this challenge?

Mobile: the worst channel for customer experience

One of the findings that interested me from our Reducing Customer Struggle report was that almost half of companies said that the quality of customer experience delivered on mobile is poor. 

Our report, produced in association with Tealeaf, found that poor user experience is costing online business billions in lost revenue, thanks to site abandonment. 

A good website experience is crucial for any online business, and as m-commerce grows, the usability of mobile sites and apps will become more and more important.

As is already well-known across the digital industry, emerging technologies mean that users can access content whenever they want, wherever they want, however they want.


Can Blippar make QR codes redundant?

Blippar, which launches in a few weeks, is a new augmented reality mobile app, which aims to make it easier for mobile users to interact with offline advertising. 

The apps use image recognition to launch interactive content on the user's phone, so an image or logo on the ad is the trigger to launch content on the phone.
