The Science Behind Chooseology

CHOOSEOLOGY MEASURES BEHAVIORS AND ENGAGEMENT WITH YOUR BRAND in the form of concept engagement. E-commerce research has demonstrated interest in an idea can be gauged based on the actions people take to learn about it.

For example, in some product categories, research has shown the more the more time a person spends online, the more they are likely to purchase.

Chooseology models the familiar online shopping experience and measures user behaviors, giving you more reliable information to ensure your brand’s online presence engages the consumer and drives sales.

Chooseology measures 10 engagement parameters, including:
  • Number of times a concept was the first, second, or third pick to the shopping cart
  • Number of times a concept was “purchased”
  • Time taken to make a choice between options
  • Total time spent reviewing the concept
  • And more

  • Respondents are asked to shop as they normally would.
  • Results are recorded in real time.
  • Following the simulator experience, custom survey questions can be included to learn more about respondent preferences.
  • Qualitative research can easily be incorporated before, during, or after the simulation.
  • Category users are recruited from any sample source. You can use your own list, source your own list, or work with our team to source one.
