800response to Survey Consumer Recall Rate to Measure Effectiveness of Vanity 800 Numbers
October 13, 2008
Vanity 800 number and Web-based call tracking provider, 800response has announced a partnership with a third-party research firm to gather data on the American consumer’s recall rate of Web site addresses and toll-free vanity 800 numbers in advertisements.
This research study is also designed to capture buyer behaviors and preferences after respondents view or hear an advertisement for various products and services, including automobiles, remodeling services, educational institutions and healthcare services.
"The research study allows us to gain a better understanding of how easily consumers recall vanity 800 numbers and Web addresses," says Laura Noonan, Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications at 800response, in a Monday statement.
"The study results will also identify occasions when - as well as why - consumers opt to call a toll-free 800 number or visit a web site in response to advertisements for higher ticket items, like a new car or a home remodel project. These insights are useful for our business as we expand our services and target new business categories.
We will share the study results with our existing customers and agency partners so they may also gain a better understanding of how consumers respond to traditional advertisements that incorporate both a web domain and a phone number as a direct response method," Noonan added.
The online survey will be received by an opted-in panel of participants. Research partner Infosurv will connect data from 1,000 respondents. 800 response is expected to release the results of the survey in early November 2008. Susan J.
