Factors effecting consumer behaviour online 1 : Technology PDF Print E-mail
Nadheera -E-Business Consultant @ RIBELZ | Friday, 20 August 2010 18:14

Technology plays a greater role in the way consumer behaves. Though in E-Marketing theory it's explained only using connection speed, i consider many more technological constraints. They are discussed below -

1. Connection speed

Is the speed at which customer exchanges data in internet. There can be 3 main speed categories with their normal expectations
  1. PDA, Smartphone - Only text
  2. Dial up - Text with pictures
  3. Broadband - Text, Pictures, Music, Video
When designing a web site, there are 3 ways to tackle this technological context
  1. By designing for the slowest user (E.g.Google)
  2. By having separate web pages for different speeds (
  3. By designing for the fastest user (E.g. You tube)
2. Browser compatibility
A browser is a software consumers use to view web pages. For e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google chrome. Browsers have slightly different functional methods and they may load web pages in different ways. Web designers use different tactics to handle this. Usually they write codes to identify the browser type and customize the content.

3. Display resolution (For graphical needs)
This is mainly for the graphical users. For e.g. If you are into photography or video editing you may experience that a LCD monitor has better resolution than a CRT monitor. No.of colours shown, Depth of screen may change from monitor to monitor. So it might not be the same colours you see in one screen from another. We usually recommend clients to check how your designs are viewed from different types of monitors.

4. Add-on availability
I'm sure everyone has experienced this. How many times were you asked to download Adobe Flash Player to see that Web banner, and how many times were you asked to install Java runtime environment to upload photos to Facebook???
When having add-on using technologies in your web site you should always make sure you give an option to download it if consumer do not have that facility.
Next - We shall talk about socio-cultural factor effecting consumer behaviour online...

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if
you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
your thoughts before writing. I have had a tough
time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
