Draper, UT, United States, 2006/05/19 - Marketing Experiments to hold teleconference on whether or not seals from VeriSign, Hacker Safe and other third-party credibility indicator services actually increase confidence in online shoppers..
MarketingExperiments.com (MEC), an online research laboratory, today announced that its next no-cost, 60-minute teleconference will be held on Wednesday May 24, 2006 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. MEC's marketing experts will discuss the effectiveness of third-party credibility indicators in reassuring online shoppers that e-commerce sites are safe and secure.
"We've all seen those seals and graphics from companies like VeriSign, Hacker Safe and TRUSTe posted on various e-commerce Web sites to assure us that our personal information will be safe with them, but how effective are these tools at actually getting that message across?" said Nick Usborne, senior editor at MEC. "There are a number of other important questions that arise when examining this subject, and we'll be sharing some recent research results for the first time during the course of the call."
Some of the questions that will be addressed are:
* How sophisticated are average online shoppers when it comes to recognizing credibility indicators?
* Do they even see them on the page?
* Does it make a difference where these graphics are placed on an Internet page?
Those interested in joining the teleconference should register online. Instructions for accessing the call will then be sent via e-mail.
