This month, we take a look at shoppers who make New Year's Resolutions. What does it say about their brand choices? BazaarVoice recently observed that the first major spike in fitness traffic for New Years Resolution search terms happens immediately after Christmas starting on the 26th, rising 5.6 times higher than usual interest. Google Trends shows that as consumers look to actually celebrate NYE, interest dips slightly and then explodes on the first of the year, presumably out of some guilt from celebrating the night before.
How much are they dependent upon deals to make a purchase? What role does a brand's online presence play in their shopping decisions. You might think these are random insights to pull from something as common as intent to make a New Year's Resolution, but you would be surprised (as we were).
