  4. 4. Introduction• This  Showrooming: Empowering Consumer Electronics Shoppers  Study focuses on consumer electronics and explores the influence of  mobile devices on the shopping process, general shopping behaviors  in physical stores/online and “showrooming”. • Ipsos fielded the online survey with 482 consumer electronics  shoppers  (past 6 months) in February with its HearWatchSay (HWS)  community. Quantitative results were supplemented with qualitative  input about shopping and showrooming behaviors.  • HWS is an online community whose members are media forward  enthusiasts of movies, TV, technology, gaming.   4
  5. 5. Topline Summary Key Insights• 86% of consumer electronics shoppers surveyed did their shopping online, while 74% shopped in a physical store.• Nearly one third (31%) of consumers used their mobile device for shopping related activities while in a store.• Among in-store shoppers, over a quarter of consumers intended to showroom by trying out the products in the store and then buying online. However, more than half of in-store consumer electronics shoppers intended to buy the product in the store.• In line with showrooming expected behaviors, close to three-quarters of consumers who went to a store went there to try out a product..• Over 3 in 4 consumers did some form of online research prior to going to a store, while 6 in 10 did so after visiting a store.• Shoppers who used their mobile device while in the store were more likely to do online research after their store visit.• Whether doing research before, during or after going to the store, the most popular research types done were: checking prices, reading reviews and looking up product features.• Over 4 in 10 consumers who ultimately made an online purchase used their mobile device in store for showrooming/shopping related activities.• Price is the top driver of consumer electronics purchases online. Convenience and the ability to try/see the products are the top reasons for purchases in the store.• Biggest spenders did in-store research on a mobile device.• In-store mobile users were much more likely to make unplanned purchases while shopping: 1 in 3 bought something spontaneously in the store, 1 in 4 bought something spontaneously online.• On average, mobile device owners and those that use their mobile device while shopping spend more on consumer electronics. (However, this could be due to increased frequency of purchases and not increased spending per occasion).• Over a third of shoppers recall seeing ads for consumer electronics they were shopping for. Among these shoppers over 7 in 10 report seeing digital ads. 5

  26. 26. Top Comments Key Verbatims• “I showroom every single electronic item that I buy. I want to be able to try it out before buying but I also want the lowest price when purchasing so I end up finding a lower price online every time. I have never found a price at a store that I couldnt beat online. Why would anyone pay a higher price to buy an item in a store?”• “I think the bar for "showrooming" has really been set by Apple. Of course you can actually buy Apple products in the store but the prices are crazy and for lots of other reasons it is less about taking the sale on the spot and more about planting the seed (and offering amazing after sales support). The experience of playing around with a product, uninhibited with the fun atmosphere and friendly help of the Apple store is what sold me on the actual product. Showrooming is especially important for mobile devices, if something is going to be attached to my hip and used every day of my life I have to know how it looks, feels, carries (will it fit in my pocket?) and the user interface.”• “Im definitely a window shopper and technology has only increased this tendency. I enjoy just going and walking around stores on my lunch break or even some evenings or weekends because its relaxing, but Im never one to take a deal at face value - and using a smartphone has made it much easier to check out deals online while Im shopping in store. It doesnt really matter what type of product it is - I do this for everything from toilet paper to electronics, although Im much more likely to spend more time researching bigger ticket items. I mainly look up prices, but I also look at reviews while Im shopping too. Ive found the Amazon PriceCheck app to be particularly helpful, because you can just scan the barcode and it finds the product (and other comparable products) for you. I think Im about 50-50 on whether it makes me more likely to buy items in store or not - there have been times in the past before my smartphone days that Ive walked away from deals to research them later and regretted not getting them when I discovered it really was a good deal. Now, having the technology at my fingertips, if I find out its a great deal on the spot, Im more likely to buy it then. However, there are also many times when I look it up online while Im shopping, find out I can get it cheaper elsewhere, and walk away - unless the convenience of having it immediately outweighs the better deal. All that being said, if Im pressed for time, Im much less likely to showroom and more likely just to trust my instincts on whether its a good deal or not (and take the chance of having to possibly return it later). One thing about the in-store experience that would make me wait to buy a product online is the length of the checkout line. If I can get as good a deal or better online (or maybe even a little more) and dont need the product right away, and its the only thing Im buying in the store that day, I might avoid the long line and opt for the ease of having it delivered in a couple days. Plus, theres always the possibility of finding a coupon code online or getting points through a rewards site to get an even better deal”• “I do my research online before making any major purchases. It narrows my list to just a few makes and models. I will then go to see these at a local store to make my final evaluation. Where I make the purchase depends on where I find the best balance of value and service. While I carry my smartphone with me, I rarely use it in a store. I did my research already and I know what the going prices are before I leave home. In a great many instances, these stores wind up being nothing more than an Amazon showroom. The stores are rarely price competitive and almost none of them service anything they sell on site. In-store service was the last unique feature stores had, but now even they mostly ship any items needing repair to some distant place. Customer service has gone, too. Often the in-store staff know less about the products than I do. Cornering an employee is often impossible ( there are too few of them) and the result unsatisfying anyway.” 26
