New data shows, appliance consumers make their purchases in-store.
Local appliance dealers, rejoice! A new survey from Netsertive, a fellow supporter of independent businesses, shows that 87% of appliance shoppers researched their item online, but made their actual purchase at local dealer locations.
The combination of a strong digital marketing and confident, knowledgeable in-store employees seals the deal for appliance shoppers.
According to the 2017 Netsertive Home Appliances Path to Purchase Survey:
- 43% of shoppers researched local dealer websites before making an in-store purchase.
- 27.2% percent of shoppers surveyed were unsure about what brand they wanted to purchase when they started their appliance research but knew which dealer location they wanted to buy from.
Digital helps to build trust and attract business, while local stores can close the deal.
