In these posts, the brand leads with a positive statement (e.g., "In love with this classic Tacori stunner!"), follows with a style/product number and ends with a professionally shot photo. It's a strategy that kept Tacori in the top 10 of Media Logic's Retail Social Juice Index (RSJI) almost every day in July.
