eBay Tweets Shopping Survey - Where Do You Shop?
By: Ina Steiner
eBay announced a new survey using its Twitter account and is giving respondents a chance to win a $100 and $400 gift card. "Complete an @eBay survey + 20 minute activity and you could win a $100 or $400 gift card! http://bit.ly/OqNSpd Retweet to tell your friends!"
The survey asks users for their age and gender, and then asks them to share information about their shopping behavior, including which online and offline stores they've made recent purchases and what types of items they've purchased in the past year.
It's interesting to see which sites and stores eBay is asking shoppers about - eBay provides the following options: Amazon.com, eBay.com, Etsy.com, Target (in store or online), Walmart (in store or online), or None of these.
eBay also asked respondents how often they purchased products on the Internet, and what types of items they purchased within the past year:
- clothing and accessories
- electronics and computers
- hobby items
- toys for a child (ages 2-12)
- toys (antiques/vintage/collector's items)
Noting its choice of retailers and categories, eBay seems most interested in going after the discount shopper. Where do you shop?
