Our habits are changing all the time. The multidevice online searches are really common activity. We use many electronic devices that are connected to Internet at home, at work. As a consequence search engines started monitor our online searches and our behaviour.

According Google – the tablets and smartphones changed the web searching experience:

I saw also other researches that presented a purchase process by using different devices.

Simply the outcome of  multidevice purchasing was following:

  • if a customer see the same product offer on many devices correctly, she/he will be more willing to buy. This pre-purchasing activity will help in taking decision. 67% of Internet users are buying by using many devices in the same time.
  • if a customer sees too many products at your offer on PC, you can differentiate this offer by mobile device – less products on tablets, lesser products on smartphone website.
  • you can combine multichannel sales to present better offer.
  • usability of websites on different devices is a key factor of success
  • the great content, great offer – it is another surplus!

More targeted offer  – the less risk and higher conversion of sales
