Consumers Take a Multi-Device Path to Purchase


Released in August 2012 the report/study touched on all the different screens consumers use on a daily basis. In fact according to the findings,  90 percent of consumers now move “sequentially” between different screens the same day. Let that sink into your coffee or beverage of choice or stream of consciousness for a second: 90 percent of consumers now move “sequentially” between different screens the same day.
So I admit it here that I ahem, borrowed one of the headlines/titles from the aforementioned report/study. I did so because a) it was a perfect title as it spoke directly to the particular finding (unlike others studies where the headline doesn't always match the content. And b) because it fascinated me for it spoke to and reminded me of The Zero Moment of Truth.
In case you have never heard of it: Authored by Jim Lecinski, the e-book that started it all Winning The Zero Moment of Truth, speaks to the “moment where marketing happens, where information happens, and where consumers make choices that affect the success and failure of nearly every brand in the world."
Well according to the aforementioned Googlereport/study, for 67% of consumers, the moment "marketing happens" occurs while using a device - a smartphone, tablet, etc. .
Now that's a pretty significant percentage in it of itself - over 2/3 of consumers start their shopping journey on a device. To take it one step deeper, roughly 2/3 of the above 2/3 (stay with me) start their shopping journey on a smartphone. And catch the headline.
Greg Sterling, who wrote about this for Marketing Land a little while ago, nailed it when he wrote that it's "more important than ever to have a coordinated presence and synchronized campaigns across multiple screens."
Now I would be remiss if I did not mention the fact that two words Greg used "coordinated" and "synchronized" - sound eerily similar to a certain 11-letter word yours truly has written about in the past - The Eleven Letter Word That Continues To Elude All CMOs And Marketers.
What word am I referring to?
Well it starts with "inter" and ends with "gration."
While not the same type of integration I was referring to in my piece, the fact remains and quite frankly I don't care what you call at this point, marketers must make sure to address each and every screen that a consumer touches, comes in contact with, etc.
Another salient point made by Greg was the fact that we can "expect that smartphones and mobile search will figure prominently in consumer research at some point in the purchase process; every product, every promotion will be touched by mobile." Again a topic - mobile marketing, which I have written about, most recently Mobile Marketing - The Elephant In The Room For Marketers where I wrote:
"The point is that marketers can obviously see the massive shift into mobile marketing and mobile advertising. There is most assuredly a tremendous opportunity to set yourself apart from your competition by taking full advantage of the fact that more and more consumers are going mobile. And isn’t that Marketing 101? Be where your customers are. Get your message in front of the right people at the right time on the right platforms?"
In Closing
Here are some of the highlights of the "lessons" from the Google report along with my take on them:
  • The vast majority of media interactions are screen-based, screen-based, and so marketing strategies should no longer be viewed as “digital” or “traditional”. Businesses should understand all of the ways that people consume media, particularly digital, and tailor strategies to each channel. Clearly to me the most significant part of this is the point that marketers need to stop differentiating between digital and traditional marketing and realize they are all run together; the lines have been blurred - forever.
  • Consumers turn to their devices in various contexts. Marketing and websites should reflect the needs of a consumer on a specific screen, and conversion goals should be adjusted to account for the inherent differences in each device. In other words make sure your site is mobile optimized! 
  • Smartphones are the backbone of our daily media use. They are the devices used most throughout the day and serve as the most common starting point for activities across multiple screens. Going mobile has become a business imperative. Really, the last line says it all. Stop avoiding that large, gray pachyderm in the room.
