What that means is that there is an undeniable trend for people to research their major purchases online before they buy. “Analysis of the tracking data for the Buddy sites shows visitors are in the active process of decision-making. They come to us to help them make up their minds,” said Ms James. It is clear from the amount of traffic to Money Buddy since launch that Australians are looking online for reliable and independent sources of information when they are making major long-term purchasing decisions.
