Today In Communication History

On this date in 1950, ‘What’s My Line’ debuted on CBS television. And the first guest was….

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new homes with meters that record the channel being watched — but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.

Mobile News
Mobile’s Influence On Offline Sales Continues To Grow
In an article in Mobile Commerce Daily by Chantel Tode (020216), more than $1 trillion of total retail sales in 2015 were influenced by mobile phones, with most of this coming from in-store transactions and further growth expected, according to a new report from Forrester Research.

In the latest update to Forrester’s Web-Influence Retail Forecast, the research firm points to several key trends that are laying the groundwork for mobile to play an even bigger role in influencing in-store sales. These trends include bigger phones and third-party services that meet mobile shoppers’ needs. “As phones are getting larger and wireless networks are improving, more web traffic is flowing through mobile networks,” said Sucharita Mulpuru, an analyst at Forrester Research and author of the report. “Shopping is a beneficiary of that trend.”

Web-impacted Sales
While ecommerce sales continue to grow, consumers still complete most of their purchases in stores. Per Forrester, ecommerce sales totaled $334 billion in 2015 while offline sales totaled $2.9 trillion. However, shoppers are increasingly engaging with digital touch points – often their smartphone – to research a purchase. In 2016, Forrester expects Web-influenced sales to total $1.3 trillion and, by 2020, to reach $1.6 trillion. As a result of this growth, Web-impacted retail sales will account for 55 percent of total sales by 2020, up from 49 percent in 2016.

Several factors will support the growth of Web-influenced offline sales. Forrester expects the total number of online buyers and browsers to increase rapidly as smartphone penetration continues to grow. Between 2015 and 20, Forrester expects the online population of shoppers to grow by 26 million. At the same time, the preference for in-store shopping remains strong.

Omnichannel Experiences
Given the growth in mobile and the preference for in-store shopping, retailers are investing in more and better omnichannel experiences. The move toward omnichannel experiences supports retailers’ belief that seamless views of inventory allow shoppers to buy what they want when they want and receive product more quickly and inexpensively than before.

Another factor influencing Web-impacted sales is the fact that smartphones are getting bigger while wireless networks are faster. As consumers get used to being able to use their phones anywhere, shopping is one of the activities they are engaging in more frequently. Additionally, search engines are making it easier for mobile users to quickly access the kind of information these users are typically looking for, from store locations and coupons to comparing prices and looking up product information.

Retailers also continue to invest where it matters most to shoppers, such as improvements in browsing products and placing orders on mobile sites. Speculative investments such as geofencing and beacons are lower on their list. “We expect more than $1 trillion of total retail sales to be influenced by mobile phones in 2015, and the lion’s share of that will be transactions in stores,” Ms. Mulpuru said.

Who and What Do Consumers Feel Define A Company’s Core Values?
Consumers believe employees have the biggest role in defining a company’s core values, per results from a Havas Worldwide survey of more than 10,000 adults worldwide. Notably, respondents believe that marketing and advertising (31%) has a significant role to play, being about as influential as brand champions (32%) and slightly more so than the CEO (29%).

Social Media
Nearly Two-thirds of Consumers Use Facebook as Social Login
Facebook accounts for 62% of social logins made by consumers to sign into the apps and websites of publishers and brands, Gigya reports. Nearly a quarter of consumers use Google logins, 7% use Twitter details and 4% use Yahoo. Google and Facebook are offered as options almost all of the time, whereas Twitter is only presented as a choice 72% of the time, and Yahoo just 35% of the time.
