The Mobile Shopper: Pivoting from Showrooming to Transaction

Showrooming is not a new concept. Even the name brings up visions of 1960's Detroit auto shows where new models were unveiled. Multiple dealerships in the same area offered the same product, most likely at very similar prices. They had to establish a value for their customers beyond the sticker price, and that is exactly what businesses need to be focused on today.

If price is the only deciding factor in a customer's purchase decision, then what is the point of maintaining a brick-and-mortar presence? Learn ways to keep your product offerings engaging and convert showroomers into loyal customers. Recent numbers from Q2 2013 show there is no denying that mobile has become an integral part of the shopping experience along the consumer’s path-to-purchase:

· 68% of consumers are researching products on smartphones before going into a retail store

· 59% of consumers are pulling out their smartphones once inside the store to comparison shop

In this panel, we’ll take an honest look at the mobile shopper and industry leaders will discuss current trends, potential threats, opportunities, technologies, tools, and data insights and analytics. Turn showrooming into showblooming and learn how to use mobile as a channel to enhance the shopping experience and develop more meaningful relationships with your mobile-savvy consumers.
