Consumers can be broken into three distinct categories, the impulse buyer, the spendthrift, and the rest of us that fall somewhere in the middle. The impulse buyer sees a product and immediately decides whether they want that item. The spendthrift sees a product and they carefully research the item, they look everywhere they can think of to find the lowest price on the item before deciding whether they want to buy it. The rest of us see the product, consider its qualities for a short time, and then make our decision. Choosing the best RC boat will be influenced by the type of shopper you are.
If you are an impulse buyer you are going to think the best RC boat is the one that you see before you. Likely you have not even considered buying one of these items before you walked in the store and saw one of them on display. You immediately see the opportunities for fun and excitement that can be had with the water craft. You might consider if you have enough cash in your pocket to purchase the item, but it is far more likely that you will place the item in your shopping cart without a second thought. You may not even remember to purchase the batteries it will require to operate the vessel.
If you are a spendthrift the best RC boat will only be discovered after many hours of exhausting research. You will likely see the item in the store and it will pique your interest. You will go home and get on the internet in hopes of finding out everything that you can about remote control water craft. You will research the different types of vessels that can be bought while trying to find the best possible price on the item you want. You will be more likely to order your toy online because you are patient. Getting what you want is not as important to you as getting the best possible price.
The rest of the population of shoppers do not buy radio controlled devices without thinking like the impulse buyer does, but they also do not over think the purchase like the spendthrift does. The average shopper will compare prices at a couple of stores and then make their decision about the purchase. The best RC boat to these shoppers is the one they can buy with the least amount of trouble.
