The opportunity exists for marketers to better reach all mobile customers by applying our findings in both Hispanic In-Store Mobile Experience reports.
Los Angeles, CA and Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Sensis and White Horse have released a second report on Hispanic retail mobile use, entitled, “Hispanic In-Store Mobile Experience: The Deals Ethic.” Like the previous report, “Social Shopping,” “The Deals Ethic” presents findings based on a study of Hispanic mobile use during shopping, and exposes important new patterns marketers should take into account when developing mobile tools and services relevant to the Hispanic audience.
Where “Social Shopping” focused on the social nature of Hispanic shopping, “The Deals Ethic” examines how finding the best deal and comparing prices using mobile apps and sites is a key behavior among Hispanic shoppers. However, retailers who provide mobile access often win business by providing transparency and demonstrating value, as shown in the report.
“We knew Hispanics are heavy mobile users,” Sensis President José Villa said. “Although we began by examining in-store mobile use, what we’ve uncovered are two distinct Hispanic behaviors, social shopping and price comparison, that are heavily involved with and impacted by mobile use.”
Sensis, a cross-cultural advertising agency, and digital agency White Horse initially teamed up after White Horse conducted similar studies about retail mobile users within the general market, including 2011’s “The Future of In-Aisle Mobile,” a groundbreaking report on in-aisle retail mobile behavior. Continuing this research by focusing on the Hispanic market has provided unexpected findings that provide greater insight into retail and behavioral marketing.
“We conducted this study to gain greater insight into mobile development for our customers,” commented White Horse Principal Jennifer Modarelli. “The opportunity exists for marketers to better reach all mobile customers by applying our findings in both Hispanic In-Store Mobile Experience reports.”
“Hispanic In-Store Mobile Experience: The Deals Ethic,” which includes statistics, insights, and marketing recommendations, is available at http://www.HispanicMobileReport.com.
