The study evaluated how purchasing behavior is impacted by the device consumers used tovisit retail web sites. In the study, one of the most comprehensive of its kind, Adobe analyzed 16.2 billion anonymous visits to thewebsites of more than 150 top U.S. retailers. Results showed that, during the 2011 holiday season and throughout 2011, tabletvisitors spent more per purchase than visitors using smartphones or traditional desktops and laptops, suggesting that tabletvisitors were the most valuable online customers in 2011.Key Report Findings Included: • Tablet visitors spent 54 percent more than smartphone visitors and 21 percent more per purchase than desktop/laptop visitors. • Tablet visitors were nearly three times more likely to buy products and services online than smartphone visitors and were nearly as likely to purchase as desktop/laptop visitors.“Adobe has long championed the need for retailers to optimize their sites for mobile visitors, and the results of this study indicatethat tablet devices have become an absolutely critical new sales channel that marketers must address head-on,” said BradRencher, senior vice president and general manager, Adobe Digital Marketing Business. “This study shows the importance ofoptimizing your 2012 e-tail strategy for tablet visitors to avoid the risk of underserving a highly-profitable, fast-growing customersegment.”Optimizing websites for mobile devices, such as smartphones, is now becoming common practice. However, with the emergenceof the iPad and Android™ tablets, companies now face additional mobile optimization requirements in order to provide enticingonline shopping experiences. If retailers treat mobile and tablet optimization strategies alike, they may fail to leverage the powerof tablet visitors, which, the study suggests, convert nearly three times more frequently than smartphone visitors.Why Tablet Visitors Spend MoreThe Adobe study suggests that demographics of tablet visitors, as well as the flexibility of the overall tablet user experience,contribute to higher tablet visitor profitability. Tablet visitors are typically males between the ages of 18-34 years old and tend tobe more affluent than other online shoppers. But higher income levels among tablet owners is just one part of the story. Tabletusers also have higher usage rates over the weekend, when there is more time to shop online.To download the full Adobe Digital Marketing Insights report, please visit: or more industry insight from Adobe and top digital marketers and advertisers from around the world, attend Adobe DigitalMarketing Summit 2012.
