Un nuevo estudio revela que uno de cada cinco cazagangas online ha sido engañado por sitios que vendían productos falsificados

Con la temporada de compras para las fiestas navideñas de 2012 a la vuelta de la esquina, MarkMonitor®, líder mundial en protección de marcas empresariales y parte de Thomson Reuters, ha publicado hoy su último estudio que examina los artículos falsificados y el comercio electrónico. Centrándose especialmente en los segmentos de los objetos de lujo y textil, el MarkMonitor Shopping Report indica que uno de cada cinco cazagangas en Estados Unidos y Europa adquirió de forma errónea en sitios de comercio electrónico que vendían artículos falsificados mientras buscaban ofertas online. Los cazagangas superaron a los consumidores que sí buscaban artículos falsos, de 20 a 1.

Mediante su tecnología patentada para examinar los patrones de compra online, MarkMonitor ha colaborado con Nielsen, proveedor líder mundial de información y perspectivas sobre lo que los consumidores ven y compran, con el fin de analizar los datos anónimos de los panelistas online autorizados de Nielsen en seis países durante un periodo de nueve meses. Casi cinco millones de sesiones de compras fueron examinadas durante el estudio, centrándose en los términos de búsqueda empleados por los compradores, como "falso", "réplica", "barato" o "descuento", con el fin de determinar su motivación. Aproximadamente uno de cada cinco cazadores de gangas europeos y estadounidenses (es decir, aquellos que buscan términos como barato, descuento, o outlet) aterrizaron en sitios que vendían artículos falsificados antes que artículos legales. Los índices de conversión, definidos como la colocación de un artículo en el carrito de la compra, para aquellas visitas a estos sitios fueron más altos que los índices de conversión para aquellas visitas a sitios que vendían artículos legales.

"Los consumidores son acaparados por sitios de comercio electrónico deshonestos que hacen que las marcan pierdan negocios. Las conclusiones de nuestro informe sobre compras destaca la importancia de desarrollar estrategias de protección de marcas preactivas en la era digital", comenta Fredrick Felman, director general de marketing de MarkMonitor.

Además, el MarkMonitor Shopping Report examinó múltiples factores demográficos, incluida la edad, los ingresos, los niveles de educación y el tamaño del hogar, y descubrió que las diferencias demográficas eran mínimas entre los consumidores online que buscan artículos falsificados y aquellos que son simplemente cazagangas que desean artículos legales. Por ejemplo, entre los consumidores estadounidenses, casi una cuarta parte de los compradores online de artículos de marca legales (26%) y aquellos que compran artículos falsificados (26%) tenía un título universitario de cuatro años o más. Casi el 37% de los compradores estadounidenses de artículos legales tenía una renta anual inferior a $50.000; entre los compradores estadounidenses de mercancías falsificadas, el 38% ganaba menos de $50.000 al año. Entre los países de la UE, el porcentaje de consumidores que ganan más de €54.000 al año es el mismo para ambos tipos de compradores de artículos falsos y legales (17%.)

"Estas conclusiones desafían la creencia más común de que los consumidores que adquieren productos falsificados son muy diferentes a los que adquieren artículos genuinos", señala Eric Solomon, vicepresidente senior de mediciones de audiencias globales de Nielsen. "Con el ciber lunes a la vuelta de la esquina, los consumidores de todos los segmentos deben estar atentos cuando adquieran artículos online".

Los precios de numerosos productos falsificados dan la impresión de que los artículos en venta son legítimos, a menudo con descuentos de entre el 25 y el 50 por ciento con respecto a los precios legítimos, que es comparable a los precios de venta de fin de temporada o "explosión de precios". Estos precios plausibles dan la sensación a los cazagangas de que están haciendo una buena compra sobre un artículo legítimo, especialmente cuando van acompañados de la tendencia cada vez más en aumento por parte de los sitios deshonestos de presentar campañas de marketing y fotografías recientes de marcas.

"A medida que la temporada de compras navideñas se aproxima, los comerciantes están deseando aumentar sus ingresos brutos y rendimiento sobre la inversión. La exclusiva metodología que hemos desarrollado con Nielsen ayudará a las marcas a ofrecer nuevas perspectivas sobre la demanda de sus productos y servicios", concluye Felman. "Al integrar los datos de un panel autorizado y anónimo de Nielsen con información sobre los sitios deshonestos y tráfico, ofrecemos perspectivas únicas sobre los patrones de compra de los consumidores en canales de comercio electrónico alternativos y ayudamos a las marcas a recuperar el tráfico y los ingresos que representan estos consumidores".

Metodología y disponibilidad

El estudio, realizado entre julio de 2011 y marzo de 2012, analiza la relación entre los compradores online, los términos de búsqueda que utilizan y los sitios que visitan cuando buscan artículos de lujo y textiles. Mediante datos de panel anónimos y búsquedas de palabras clave, los analistas de MarkMonitor analizan el tráfico de los sitios visitados por los panelistas, incluidas 1.000 páginas web que venden artículos legales y 8.000 sitios identificados por MarkMonitor por vender artículos falsos. Los analistas clasificaron a los consumidores según si visitaban sitios donde vendían artículos falsos y también según si sus búsquedas de palabras clave estaban relacionadas con gangas o productos falsos. Los panelistas autorizados de Nielsen fueron extraídos de Francia, Alemania, Italia, España, Suiza y Reino Unido así como Estados Unidos.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
