Flash media buying guides|
In addition to researching products with the interactive, Flash media buying guides, consumers can print out PDF summaries that serve as a checklist they can take into the store. The Buying Guides are brand-neutral and help consumers with everything from choosing the right amount of memory for a digital camera to picking the best accessories for an MP3 player. By year's end, CEknowhow Buying Guides will also be available for digital television, audio and wireless products. "The CEknowhow Buying Guides are a great addition to the tools, resources, and expert editorial content that CNET currently offers consumers to help them find the product that is right for them, and make the right buying choices," said Candice Meyers, senior vice president of CNET.
CEA & CNET - CEknowhow buying guides
"With its excellent reputation and a community of millions of loyal users, CNET was the ideal partner for the CEknowhow Buying Guides," said CEA Senior Vice President of Industry Relations Todd Thibodeaux. "Our goal was to create guides that offer the consumer enough information before the actual purchase to ensure that they buy the right product and accessories for their individual needs. We're also encouraging retailers, consumer education and shopping portals, and CEA members to link to the CEknowhow Buying Guides from their own websites."
