Your phone is still not a tool for commerce, according to new research from e-commerce specialist, ATG.
ATG surveyed 1,054 people asking them how they browse and research products, as well as how they make purchases. As you can see in the chart below, people aren’t yet using mobile phones for either researching or buying products.
Regardless, it’s important to keep this in mind when thinking about the mobile ad market. Purchasing intent is one of the key drivers of advertising.
