MyBuys Survey Reveals That 83 Percent of Consumers Want to Be Recognized Across Channels and Mobile Devices

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2014) - The majority of consumers want to be recognized and expect personalized experiences across channels and devices according to the 6th Annual Personalization Consumer Survey1 commissioned by MyBuys, provider of coordinated personalization solutions for display ads, email and websites. The survey, conducted by the e-tailing group, found that 83 percent of consumers saw value in being recognized across devices by online retailers in order to receive personalized and consistent shopping experiences. Conversely, only 23 percent completely agreed that the retailers where they shop do this consistently on all devices.

"The e-tailing group study provides evidence of what we at MyBuys have long known: consumers expect and desire personalization throughout their online shopping experience, and further, that personalization increases online sales," said MyBuys CEO Robert Cell. "The MyAds solution, complimenting MyMail and MySite, gives retailers what they need to coordinate campaigns based on individual consumer insights and behavior."

The study highlights can be accessed online here. Key findings help retailers and brands build marketing strategies:
