Study: Ask Consumers About A Product and They’ll Probably Buy It

A survey conducted by market research company Cint finds that consumers are more likely to purchase a product if they’ve been asked about it first.

The company surveyed 1,193 people (almost equally split between men and women) around the world and 62 percent said they were more likely to buy an item if the company asked them about it first. More than half, 56 percent, said they would be more loyal to a brand that sought their opinion. As we mentioned up top, Cint is a market research company.

Still, another interesting find — 77 percent of consumers say they think companies are listening to them more now than they did 10 years ago (which could be true if you use BofA and Netflix as examples). And 91 percent said they prefer to conduct market research via Web, smartphone, or SMS.
