The fact that we are all being followed online is not lost on most consumers. Remarketing or retargeting is something we all encounter. For those of us that spend a significant time online we know the scenario all too well….

You’re checking out some new sneakers for the fall at Ineednewsneakers.com, find a pair you love, are interrupted by your boss, and move on to search the web for the latest news about a new client.  Then it appears, almost magically, your sneaker on webpage after webpage in the form of an ad.

The practice of remarketing is on the rise, with advocates touting its effectiveness and low price tag. But at what cost? We wanted to know more about how consumers feel about this practice and the brands who employ it. Do they want them to stop? Do they find it helpful? Do they even notice? So we asked the question. Check out the infographic to see what we found.

The results we received from the iModerate one-on-one, in-depth conversations were much more enlightening than what we typically garner from open-ended verbatim responses. The live moderator offers us the ability and flexibility to probe deeper on certain points, enabling us to get stronger, less vague information. That unique capability has proved extremely valuable to us, and has made this IM-based platform an integral part of our research toolbox.
