Passive measurement: Path to purchase

Date of publication: November 2, 2020

Abstract:

Google and Nielsen came together to develop a way to better understand how consumers go about researching and buying mobile phones. With the internet in the palms of their hands, consumers interact a lot with the medium before considering and/or evaluating or purchasing any product. We wanted to capture this interaction and how this influences the path to purchase for the category. The goal was to reduce reliance on claim-based research techniques, especially owing to the complexity of the digital touch-points to mobile phone purchases, and move to observation-based research.
