You manage a business ? Do you know that some channels are more suitable than others for social influence and this depends on the product category you sell?

That’s what I propose you to discover through the study of M Booth and Beyond, for which 1500 consumers were questioned about the products they were looking on the Internet and the channels they had chosen to find .

You will learn for example that the channels that have the most influence on the social consumer  are:
