Eye Tracking is a unique method for objectively measuring consumer attention and behavior in-store. This is done by using advanced high-tech glasses with a two-way camera, which is further used to show the shopper using the glasses in a “first-person perspective”. The Eye Tracker will register when the shopper’s pupil focuses on a specific object (i.e. a product or a poster) and will re-define this into data points which can then be aggregated for visualization and analysis of the data for several as many consumers as you wish to measure. By using Eye Tracking as a tool for consumer analysis, you will finally get objective answers to your questions, and remove “good intensions” and “subjective opinions” from the equation.
Which products are most frequently noticed by the shoppers? How does the shopper navigate in the category/shelf? What share of the in-store communication gets actually seen by the shopper? Which products function as the “anchor” in the shelf and stands out from the rest? This, among several others, are questions you’ll get the answer to from an Eye Tracking study.
