Approach + Solution

Phoenix MI used a predominantly mobile approach to find real shoppers in-store who were toy shopping as part of their trip.

Potential respondents were identified using a geo-fencing technology and screened for purchase plans. This allowed us to identify a true robust sample of respondents who had genuine and recent interest in toy shopping.


Our client was able to gain fresh insight into the retail toy shopping experience, which enabled them to engage in strategic discussions with their retail and manufacturing partners.

Some of the significant insights gained by the client included store layout and messaging, planned and unplanned purchases, amount spent, use of coupons, and gift giving.
