Answers Launches 'Shopper Answers' to Enable Brands to Engage Directly with Customers on their Favorite Shopping Sites

Answers has launched a edge customer engagement tool for brands and manufacturers called Shopper Answers(TM). Shopper Answers, the first new product released by the Answers cloud services division, allows brands and manufacturers to directly answer questions from customers shopping on their favorite retail sites to better inform them and to increase retail conversions. With Shopper Answers, brands receive specific consumer questions on retail product pages and respond to consumers directly. Brands may also compile product-specific questions into FAQs and syndicate these in real-time to brand product pages across the Answers' network of online retailers. Shopper Answers helps brands gain insights on how effectively they're communicating their product messages to shoppers. Engagement reports help brands understand deficiencies in their marketing materials and optimize their product content to better inform customers during the shopping experience. Shopper Answers is available exclusively to clients of Webcollage and Easy2, both Answers companies.
