Social network marketing is a new method of marketing that is not understood by many people. Sure, if you do not know what you are doing, you will be disappointed. This method of marketing needs a different approach because the audience is not in a buying mood. Actually, social network users hate advertisements, banners and all that affiliate selling nonsense. Users on social networks are there to share experiences, play and communicate with friends.
