Trustpilot, a leading online consumer review destination with 35 million reviews of nearly 190,000 businesses, recently released its Consumer Behavior and Expectations: The 2017 Holiday Season report, with in-depth analysis on consumer behavior, sentiment and customer review patterns. While thousands of consumers indicated pricing was one of the most important considerations for the 2017 shopping season, language analysis of more than 1 million consumer reviews suggested otherwise. Consumer sentiment favored brands offering superior customer service and timely fulfillment over other popular holiday initiatives, such as discount pricing and flexible return policies. The report helps retailers capitalize on key expectations and behaviors by identifying specific consumer trends, biases and preferences.
Designed for retail CEO's, CMO's, e-Commerce Directors, Marketing Managers and other strategic decision makers, the Total Retail Resource Library is the premier source for free retail oriented best practices and case studies.
