Little trust in social platform shopping

Ever click from social to a brand site to make a purchase, or go back to the company site to buy later? According to a Simplicitydx survey of more than 3,000 US consumers’ social shopping behavior, only 23% reported clicking over, directly as opposed to 48% who said they would return to the brand website later to buy. That’s because trust levels in social are still low. It also makes for massive underreporting – as much as 245%, according to Simplicitydx – of the conversion rate.

May 31, 2023

Just over one-third of marketers plan to either buy a new CDP (21%) or replace an existing one (13%) this year, according to this Optimove survey. Unfortunately, it doesn’t report how many have a CDP already in place, which would put the other values in perspective. It does seem that CDPs are a relatively low priority: they rank sixth on the list of new systems and eighth on the list of systems to replace.
