This week I’m presenting an interesting Infographic from a global online jewellery site Boticca.com. They sell unique handmade jewellery from all over the world and provide their designers and customers peace of mind by upholding a solid e-commerce environment in which they are able to trade.
Recently the brand conducted an experiment using their well-maintained social media platforms Facebook and Pinterest. What they did was really simple as they just followed the actions of the consumers who were engaged with them socially. The study was carried out over a month earlier this year and to gauge a fair assumption from their findings Boticca.com had to facilitate a vast amount of users, 50,000 from each platform was about enough!

The outcome of their study was really interesting and is a lesson to all fashion and jewellery orientated sites worldwide in terms of what to do with their choice of social media!
In terms of the stats, they’ve not just produced a boring spread sheet so feast your eyes on the exciting infographic below to for all the Boticca findings:
