Mobile Phone Consumers Turning to Internet for Purchases
The growth of online mobile phone shopping is on the incline. A lack of suitable in-store deals has seen many consumers find a deal to suit their requirements online.
[UKPRwire, Fri Oct 09 2009] The growth of the online mobile shopping trend appears to be on the incline according to YouGov’s latest survey on mobile browsing and buying experiences. It was revealed that the standards of customer service and a lack of suitable deals saw a third of those surveyed fail to find the mobile phone and contract to suit their requirements.
Perhaps unsurprisingly this has seen a rise of consumers turning to online mobile shops to complete their purchases, with 53% of consumers using the web for their most recent purchase. With the chance to read plentiful reviews of mobile products and accessories, consumers are now greater informed than ever before, reducing the need of paying a visit to a mobile store.
Easy access to online reviews tips the balance in contrast to the apparent level of interaction in a mobile phone shop. 91% of the survey admitted that they would have appreciated being able to play with a working handset before purchase, but only 44% were physically able to do so. These stark figures suggest that the mobile phone industry is still missing out on a large percentage of its potential target audience, with too many consumers getting unsatisfactory service and advice.
Online mobile phone shops avoid the jargon from customer sales advisors and provide an easily-negotiable website shop presenting all relevant information. Many mobile phone providers oft shoot themselves in the foot by providing ‘web exclusive’ contract and handset offers that cannot be found in store. Consequently, network providers cannot complain if potential buyers are choosing to make their move online.
