MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Crowd Science today announced its latest free web tool, called SHOP, for small and mid-sized ecommerce sites that want to better understand their customers' buying behaviors. SHOP is able to invite a website's visitors to take a quick, engaging survey to learn what type of shopper they are. Once the shopper takes the survey, they are encouraged to share their "shopping personality" with their social media network via Twitter & Facebook, creating a viral loop and thus referring others back to the originating e-tailer's site. On the back-end, SHOP gathers valuable analytics & demographic data about visitors that the e-tailer can use to better market and merchandize their online store.
SHOP is Crowd Science's fourth Free Market Research Tool created especially for small to mid-sized ecommerce sites in response to the double-digit growth in online retail sales over the last few years. "Smaller ecommerce sites are looking for tools like this to increase purchases and create customer loyalty," says Crowd Science CEO, Corey Leibow. "E-tailers will find SHOP a valuable resource to better merchandize and increase brand awareness while marketing their brands through social media."
