With access to the thoughts of millions of people just like them via social media and various marketplaces, consumers have never felt more empowered to seek out authentic, real-life opinions before they make purchasing decisions.
Beyond traditional ratings and reviews, consumers also seek out customer ratings, reviews, and user-generated content (UGC) along their journey to becoming a buyer.
To better understand what really matters to people as they consider a purchase, Emplifi collaborated with Harris Interactive to survey more than 2,000 people about their habits and priorities during that process, and the power of brand authenticity across each step of the customer journey.
