The Retail Industry And Mobile Business – Infographic

Cognizant analyzed the mobile web and app offerings of the top 100 retailers. Here is what we found about the current state of mobility in retail (infographic).

The mobile phenomenon almost caught retailers by surprise. Consumers warmly embraced smartphones and tablets in their daily lives and at a blinding and dramatic pace, permanently altering how they shop for products and services.

Retailers were forced to follow and to quickly offer mobile solutions to smartphone–wielding customers. Despite limited success, choice of multiple platforms and associated skill constraints, retailers responded by offering mobile optimized Web sites and native apps with many useful features for customers on the go.

To better understand how top retailers have responded to mobility, we analyzed the offerings ( Mobile Web and iPhone/Android apps) of players featured in the STORES.org list of Top 100 Retailers (we excluded restaurant chains like McDonald’s and Wendy’s from this analysis). The below infographic presents our insights on the current state of retail mobility based on this research:

  • A majority of top retailers have a mobile offering in place though a small, yet significant, number have yet to get onto the bandwagon.
  • A clear winning platform strategy has yet to emerge.
  • Though retailers offer a slew of useful features, mobile offerings have not met customer expectations.
  • There is tremendous opportunity to enhance the mobile customer experience.

We hope that as retailers define (or refine) their mobile strategies, they will be able to use these insights as inputs into the decision – making process.

How Small Businesses Can Compete With Corporate and Retail Giants – Infographic

Between their Black Friday Best Buy expeditions and Cyber Monday mania on Amazon, many holiday shoppers plan to celebrate Small Business Saturday this weekend.

Conceived in 2010, the “holiday” puts the spotlight on local mom-and-pop retailers. If you’re looking for info about which small businesses have the best deals, however, you might not find it online. More than 60% of small businesses do not have a website, and many that are online do not show up in search results.

The web is already a vital source of information, becoming more popular every day. These small businesses are going to have to get off the digital sidelines if they plan to compete with their corporate counterparts, not to mention with online retail giants.

The following infographic, created by ReachLocal, explains why online marketing is crucial for small businesses.

Bots Drive 16% of U.S. Web Traffic – Infographic

Bots Drive 16% of U.S. Web Traffic [INFOGRAPHIC].

Along with trolls and Rickrolls, bots are the scourge of the Internet.

 

Automated clicks on ads and other web content drive down value, diminish investments and hurt integrity. And the bot problem only seems to be getting worse as technology advances. This summer, for example, a Long Island startup gained widespread attention after claiming that 80% of the clicks it paid for in Facebook ads came from bots and not humans.

 

But just how bad is the bot epidemic — and how can bots be beat?

 

The online advertising company Solve Media recently ran some analytics on the issue, and came up with a number of interesting results, which are presented in the following infographic.

 

Among Solve’s more interesting findings is that, while the United States may have the most bots in terms of sheer numbers, it actually has a lower rate of non-consumer traffic than some other countries. Some 16 percent of U.S. traffic is bot-based, according to Solve, but in Singapore that number is an astonishing 56 percent. In Taiwan, it’s 54 percent, and 43 percent in the Philippines.

 

That can mean a potential major loss of money for advertisers. Online display advertising will reach $15.3 billion this year, according to some estimates, so all that bot traffic means an overall potential spending waste by advertisers that reaches into the hundreds of millions of dollars at a minimum.

 

So what can you, online advertiser, do to defeat the bots? Looking for cost-per-engagement advertising opportunities, partnering with publishers who actively fight bot traffic and implementing tracking technology are three good ways to get started. For more, check out the full infographic below.

 

What are the best anti-bot measures you know of? Let us know in the comments.

How People Shop Online – Infographic

Online shopping is discreet, easy and fast. It’s no wonder shoppers are filling up virtual carts instead of visiting brick-and-mortar shops.

Shopping online allows us to skip the lines, crowds, travel expenses and the hassle of parking. A recent survey conducted by Lab42 — a market research company — found 66% of consumers prefer web retailers. Nearly half of the survey participants complete 73% of their shopping online.

Savvy shoppers are also turning to web and mobile stores for bargains. Nielson recently reported nearly 50% of U.S. smartphone owners are using shopping apps each month, frequenting eBay, Amazon, Groupon and LivingSocial’s mobile stores. About 45 million smartphone owners access shopping-and-commerce apps each month.

Lab42 produced the infographic below showcasing the findings from its online shopping survey. The company also explores the factors influencing online shoppers to make purchases.
