CTAM Wired Webcast: Connected Consumer 2018 Quantitative Study​

November 28, 2018
3pm ET

Consumers sense the momentum to enter the smart home world, and those who already own devices intend to purchase more.  This study, done in partnership with Magid, completes the picture that began with the 2017 qualitative study. It explores how technologies will impact the connected home beyond locks, lights and entertainment. The opportunities and advantages for the industry have implications for future product and business strategies.  A sample of the findings reveal:

  • Voice control holds major promise for driving new adopters and for enabling discovery and exploration of video content

  • Video-related smart speaker functions are the most used feature and offer consumer-friendly opportunities for our industry 

  • Parents are driving smart speaker adoption and tapping them for parental controls

  • Connected consumers are happy TV consumers with higher NPS scores

Culture is operating under new rules where people, celebrities, brands and content creators are now entangled with one another, occupying the same culture-making space. Through the ubiquity of digital/social media, it’s easier than ever before for like-minded people to link up around the world building strong cultures, affecting how we communicate with one another, who has influence and how brands participate.

  • Visual communication
  • Shared experiences
  • Fame

CTAM Wired Webcast: Monetizing Video Through Voice, 

from the Screen to the Shopping Cart

A recent consumer study by Connekt finds nearly three-quarters of consumers are receptive to the idea of linking their Google Home, Amazon Echo and other voice assistants to their TVs, and using those devices to purchase products they see on their screens in real-time. This new connection signifies a massive opportunity for brands in the TV ecosystem to begin to facilitate voice-driven shopping.

Uncover the main findings from the research, which connects the dots between voice and t-commerce, and details the steps companies should be taking now to capitalize on this fast-moving opportunity.  Then take a glimpse into the future as scenarios are outlined where TV, commerce and voice collide in new ways.
