Social Media Marketing Fast Facts

Social Media Marketing and the Law of Attraction

If there is a way to sum up my thoughts on the social phenomenon at this stage is that “Herd Theory” works. As a marketing strategist guy I’ve listened to just about every known Social Media Marketing (SMM) expert and a common theme is echoing in my ears in terms of success in the social media marketing space.
