Electronics provide an experience beyond technical specifications. Influencers are essential to creating this experience as they guide consumers through a list of technical features and ultimately recommend a product
Farmington, CT; Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) February 25, 2016
The annual MSS US Electronics Influencer Study for the Headphones and Flat Panel TV categories asks hundreds of Retail Sales Associates (RSA) influencers their opinion of the brands within each category, and to rank all the major brands in terms of the frequency they recommend them to consumers.
“The headphone and TV markets are seeing rapid expansion. Electronics provide an experience beyond technical specifications. Influencers are essential to creating this experience as they guide consumers through a list of technical features and ultimately recommend a product aimed to meet a customer’s needs,” says Kevin Moran, Co-CEO of actûrus. “With each influencer making hundreds of recommendations per year, these influencers represent a significant opportunity for a brand to increase their share of mouth within the Headphones and Flat Panel TV category.”
The award program recognizes TV and Headphone brands, respectively, with the highest share of recommendations among RSAs in the annual MSS Electronics Influencer Studies. Additional information is provided to participating suppliers on product image, programming effectiveness and other metrics that enable them to make more informed strategic decisions on how to position their brand among influencers.
The 2015 MSS Most Often Recommended Brand Award winners include:
Flat Panel TV: Samsung
