The users of Meilishuo

Around 35% of Meilishuo’s users are in top cities as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Also a lot of users are in booming areas including Jiangsu, Zhejiang and other provinces in China.
There are three types of Meilishuo users: Super-users who produce most of the content and use the platform as conduit for personal expression. These users can be celebrities, designers, or just particularly engaged users. Then there are the consumers who regularly browse and share content from the catalogs, serving as viral conduits. And finally, there are the “mass users,” who come to the site on a casual basis whenever they need to buy something.
Meilishuo & Taobao
In the last years, Mei li shuo has a relationship of cooperation with the third party sites, the e-commerce sites, primarily Taobao which is Chinese largest e-commerce site. The products listed on Meilishuo come from the third party websites and when users click on the photos of products, they are re-directed to the buying page on Taobao.
But since the October 2013, Meilishuo took a big transformation: it stopped the collaborative relationship with Taobao and became an independent website not only for the shopping guide but also the e-commerce site. The reason according to Meilishuo is that in the year 2013, Meilishuo brought more than 3 billion RMB amount of business, but the commission that Meilishuo could get is only ten million RMB.
Meilishuo & Tencent
Since the rupture with Taobao, Mei li shuo developped quickly a business transaction system. Besides, it reinforces the cooperation with Tencent. In fact, from the beginning of Meilishuo, the most of users come from QQ and QQzone.
Users can use their QQ account to login to the website (with no need to create a new account) which is beneficial for the website owner who can know more about their users. So if users access Meilishuo through QQ interconnection, when they find a good dress, they can click “share”- and then the dress information will be posted on their QQ-zone (which means their QQ blog).
“Like” functions are also available through QQ .
After accessing QQ , the total traffic and number of users of meilishuo.com increased 20% and 70%. In other words, utilizing QQ interconnection for attracting traffic is a win-win promotion method to both Meilishuo and Tencent.
On the other hand, Taobao stopped the service Alipay, it’s also a big problem for Meilishuo. But now, it can use the wechat pay from Tencent, and there is also some promotions with wechat pay.
Meilishuo App develops a lot
Meilishuo.com has also pursued Mobile App’s to promote on the mobile internet. Now users can enter the site via IPAD / IPHONE and ANDORID ports as well. A data of 2011 shows, the download of Meilishuo App has overpassed 10 million.
