  • 3. Harris Interactive Methodology
    This survey was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of 1020 Placecast. 
    All data collection was done online within the United States between May 17 and 19, 2010 among 2046 adults ages 18 and older, of whom 1,719 own a cell phone.  
    Results were weighted as needed to reflect the composition of the U.S. adult population ages 18+ using targets for region, age within gender, education, household income, and race/ethnicity.  
    Respondents for this survey were selected from among the Harris Poll Online (HPOL) database, which includes several million people who have agreed to participate in Harris Interactive surveys.
  • 4. Emerging Insights
    Consumers are interested in receiving opt-in marketing messages:
    • Interest levels are highest among younger audiences – consistent with first survey
    • 5. Men and women now show nearly equal interest – interest among women has risen from survey 1 and in some demo groups exceeds that of men
    Groceries, restaurants and entertainment top the list of interested categories for receiving alerts but men and women vary dramatically in the types of alerts they would prefer to receive:
    Women, reflective of their role as primary household shoppers, are both the most promotionally sensitive and most interested in grocery, beauty and apparel marketing alerts
    Men are most interested in electronics and sporting goods
    Interest is similar for categories like restaurants and entertainment
    The alerts are most likely to impact web and store visitation among those receiving them, and also impact purchase:
    There is strong interest in location-based marketing:
    Location basis considered potentially useful, innovative and more likely to be relevant by significant percentage of respondents
