Back To School

While offline shopping continues to be the primary channel to buy most BTS products, parents are more open in exploring online shopping when looking for tech-related products.

When surfing social media for BTS products, the majority of parents are looking out for promotions, product reviews and to engage retailers’ social media pages.
