Google wanted to better understand how people meet their buy needs in a world of limitless online and offline resources.
We asked 1,000 smartphone users to take a quick poll several times a day for a week indicating needs they had throughout the day and the actions they took to meet them.
After examining 14,000 interactions, confirmed the degree to which mobile search influences offline decisions. 70% of smartphone owners use mobile before making an in-store purchase and the majority who search via mobile, purchase within a day.
Featured by Google as one of Top 12 favorite insights from last year for its relevance in identifying customer trends.
