We then come to Beardbrand, a men’s grooming company that sets up a perfect example of how to use social media for the appraisal of your store’s performance.
Beardbrand has acquired over 1.7 million subscribers on YouTube since 2012. Converting these many subscribers into valuable customers is the key to success for this store.
“That was not easy at all!” says the owner. “It took a lot of time and effort to grow such an interesting and entertaining video content that impresses the massive customers” he also added.
If you were to visit Beardbrand for the first time, you would have to take a live quiz, which collects the details of the customers to use for future email marketing which generates a lot more revenue than we can imagine.
