Online or In Person?

Facebook or face to face?

Instagram or insta-experience?

Twitter or chatter?

Some people are just online shoppers, there’s no changing that! They like to browse, customize and purchase online. They click yes, pay and except delivery, done! There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s quick, easy and a get it done type of approach. Then, there is the tactile person. Sure, they will go online, but only to find phone numbers and addresses of places to actually, physically go. Some people just like to go to stores and talk to real time, real live people. They like to do their own research, touch the samples and have an experience that the new, online shoppers just don’t get.

I’m 29, turning 30 this year, but I’ll be 29 forever. I, like a lot of people my age, are categorized as the “in between” shoppers. I do enjoy a good online purchase from time to time, but for me there’s nothing like physical, retail therapy. How a person deals with me and explains the products, process of purchasing and price says a lot. I judge a retailer by the salesperson they have chosen to represent them. If the salesperson is confident, knowledgeable, friendly and professional then I am certain that the company I am about to purchase from is all of those things too. It’s nearly impossible to get that vibe when buying online, unless it’s a well-known name, and sorry live chat can only do so much. I’d spend a whole day talking to professionals versus chit-chatting online. Don’t get me wrong, a quick, online purchase is awesome and if you know how to shop online, it can really pay off. If you need advice, direction and a real life contact to figure it out, than physical shopping is THE better route for you.
