Research reveals extent of smartphone shopping in 2014



The extent to which Brits are now shopping on their smartphone has been revealed by research conducted by Tecmark.

Our research, conducted in association with OnePoll, looked at all aspects of smartphone usage in the final months of 2014.

And its clear that shopping on smartphones is becoming an increasingly central part of the consumers experience.

More than 30% of respondents who bought during a three-month spell had made a single purchase worth more than 100.

Northern Ireland, the north east and London were the leading areas for shopping on smartphones, while 35% of buyers admitted to shopping on their phone while at work.

And its not just the younger generation that are using their smartphones: silver surfers are also cashing in, with more than a quarter of over 55s having made purchases on their smartphones. Almost 30% of over 55s had used their smartphones in-store to do a live price comparison.

Tecmark conducted a number of surveys in 2014 around consumer behaviour on smartphones and weve combined the results into aninfographic and animation.

    We’ve already talked about how to take your copywriting to the next level, but let’s chat about blogging for a second. Too many times, we see businesses and individuals churning out a conveyer belt of blogs, many of which hold little to no value to the site they’re published on.


    In order to ensure the best possible review, you need to make sure that the blogger is the perfect candidate for your campaign, the product arrives in immaculate condition and you have tried to adhere to the bloggers requests and make the process as simple possible for both yourself and the influencer.


    Load speed is sometimes overlooked as a component of a website’s technical wellbeing. If a website is too slow in displaying pages (or products) that a user wants to see, it can be damaging to both web traffic and ecommerce values.
