The study highlights the role of Internet information resources, the retailer channel, and web-to-store convenience options offered online—such as in-store pickup and inventory availability—in shaping consumer purchase decisions.

8 8 Web-ready buyers are demanding  “Web-Ready Buyers” are demanding, doing their shopping “homework” well in advance of their purchase  “Web-Ready Buyers” who are predisposed to research online are willing to spend at least several days or weeks researching products  They are first and foremost problem solvers who leverage the web’s efficiencies to quickly find the right answers to their shopping needs

9 9 These customers leverage all channels, seeking complete information  The role of the manufacturer online has been elevated: a visit to their site is often the first stop for savvy online information seekers  The store is an integral part of shoppers’ multi-channel buying experiences  Expectations are high for Web-Ready Buyers regarding:  the number of information sources they seek out  the features they expect to see on any given site  their propensity for using in-store pickup

10 10 The ‘Local’ proposition is clear  Saving time, convenience and saving money are consistently what matter most to consumers when using a local search engine to research products online  To the consumer, local is getting the right price for an in-stock product at a favored retailer

11 11 Prior to buying, consumers are spending considerable time online in ‘research mode’ Q3 42 percent of shoppers spend more than half of their total shopping time researching online

12 12 Shoppers multi-source: 72% look to the manufacturer’s website when researching major branded products online, while 54% seek out favored retailers Q6 Beyond this, shopper styles affect where consumers start their research

13 13 Consumers are first and foremost needs-driven, with many influences triggering their search for online product information Q11 Women are more traditional: favoring word-of-mouth, catalogs, magazines, newspapers Men are more web- centric: embracing online promotions, banner ads and email Word-of mouth continues to play an important role similarly valued by consumers

31 31 Q5 *Other includes shipping not an option, out of stock online; taking advantage of a discount offered if picked up in-store Buyers who pick up in-store are motivated by shipping savings and convenience benefits Among women saving on shipping is even more of a motivator as it was selected by 63% Note: Beyond saving shipping expenses, immediate needs and convenience will always play an important role in “local” shopping

32 32 Product locators with inventory access will serve as the ultimate foundation for future cross-channel conveniences

33 33 Q5 Are you ready?  Comprehensive content must be in place  Category-centric tools should give customers the control they demand to swiftly satisfy and solve shopper needs  Manufacturers must extend their efforts through retail and search partners  Cross-channel conveniences should be clear to shoppers  Merchants must think about both time and cost savings when structuring multi-channel experiences
