WatchPro Top 20 Retail Social Network Power List


Across the UK competition between watch retailers, whether online or on the high street, is hotting up. As more turn to online marketing tools to drive sales, a select few have taken the lead in the social media race, placing them in the WatchPro Top 20 Retail Social Network Power List.

These retailers are busy Tweeting, uploading photos of collections and events on Facebook, and use social media to keep in contact with their customers to offer instant customer service. While most of the retailers on this list started to use social networking in 2009 or 2010, there also seems to have been a spike in watch retailers joining Facebook in March last year.

Unsurprisingly those watch retailers with an online-only presence boasted the highest number of social media followers, while a number of high street retailers lacked the social media drive. In this list you’ll find the UK’s best movers and shakers in online social networking. Number of fans referred to is a combined total of Facebok fans and Twitter followers.
