Consumers Journey to Purchase - Audio
This study provides insight into the opportunity at retail among key consumer groups by examining how consumers shop for audio products, what drives them to purchase in one channel over another, and the role salespeople, family/friends/coworkers, reviews and packaging play in their purchase decision. In addition, the study explores consumer perceptions of the different shopping options including brick-and-mortar, online and mobile channels.
