Is that a phone in your hand or are you just shopping?

The pace of change continues to accelerate.

UK smartphone owners spend twice as much time online, than they do on voice calls.

British telco O2 has reported that each day, UK smartphone owners on average, spend 24.8 minutes browsing the web, 17.5 minutes on social networks and 14.4 minutes playing games, but only 12.1 minutes actually making telephone calls!

Cloud-based, client-side, data analyst, Monetate has released its Q4 report with some dramatic information on m.commerce.

The 27 page report provides insights into current consumer behaviour. Consider these two statistics on device use and order value on the web:

Between Q4 2011 and Q4 2012, website visits on tablets and smartphones more than doubled, while desktop and laptop numbers fell from an overwhelming 91.79% to below 80%. Tablet use rose from 4.09% to 9.83% and smartphone use from 4.12% to 10.72%

Over the same period, the average order value by device demonstrated higher figures for hand held devices: an average sale of US$113.95 on smartphones, and $104.30 on tablets, compared with $98.72 on traditional screens.

The combination of the web and a computer bore e.tailing and e.commerce.
The melding of mobile and web enabled m.commerce.
The convergence of television, handheld devices and retail, is termed the “second screen“.

Watching TV while using a handheld device is one of the most popular leisure activities of the mobile era.

85% of smartphone users report second screen behaviour at least once a month, with over 60% at least weekly, and 39% on a daily basis. Over 80% of the 18-24 demographic participate, as do 60% of Americans earning >$50,000 pa.

In a new report from BI Intelligence, the TV companion handheld device, enables interactivity on social networks or direct participation in dedicated second screen apps and sites that complement on-air content.

Second screen commerce enables the viewer to respond to television advertisements or product placements with impulse purchases on their mobile device.

Consumers determine conversion rates, average order values, the brand’s position in relation to its competitors, and ultimately the brand’s survival.

I recently engaged Digital Tsunami to design and build my 60-page website. I'm a website copywriter who relies heavily on web-generated business, so my own online presence needs to be impeccable.

The solution that Digital Tsunami supplied is brilliant. It meets my needs perfectly; it's clean, bold, elegant, fast, and easy to edit. I've had lots of very positive feedback about it, and since launch, my request for quote rate and conversion rate have increased markedly.

The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.

I have no hesitation in recommending the website design services of Digital Tsunami to any business .. that needs a stand-out online presence.

Our take-away menu advertised TamarindThai.com.au, even though the site didn’t exist.

Digital Tsunami offered great ideas and design to set up a professional website that matches our name, ideas and style of the restaurant.

Andrew is very knowledgeable IT professional and he never hesitated to see and consult us in the restaurant.
