Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
New research carried out by cross-browser extension firm Besttoolbars has revealed an interesting link between the installation process and user engagement. Focusing its inquiry into coupon browser extension marketing, the new data shows that when coupon browser extensions are released simultaneously on all major browser platforms (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari), the use of single silent installers is critical to achieving substantial audience coverage.
The Besttoolbars research revealed a strong correlation between the facilitation of a single silent installer, minimal user involvement in the install and increase in audience coverage. Significantly, it detected that single silent installers were a best fit for coupon browser extension marketing as the primary audience demographic is housewives who appreciate fewer technical demands on their time. A smooth installation process with minimal user involvement was found to aid engagement levels, with users being more willing to use the extension afterwards.
The research by Besttoolbars also demonstrated a new appreciation for maximum market penetration amongst publishers, with most coupon browser extension marketing taking place across all major browser platforms at the same time. Whereas in its infancy, coupon browser extension marketing may have focused just on Internet Explorer and / or Chrome, it now encompasses Firefox and Safari simultaneously.
Vladimir Zhukov, Head of Marketing at Besttoolbars said, “Releasing the coupon browser extension on a number of browsers is now important than ever because it increases the audience coverage. We found the results of our study to be very interesting as they showed a very strong correlation between ease of installation and user engagement as well as the need to provide cross-browser publication from the start. It shows just how influential the user experience is and how early in the consumer life cycle it starts – literally from before the installation even commences.”
