2.) FREE – Time means money…so YES, spending time marketing on the social media sites will cost you energy…but time worth spent. If your time is limited and decide to hire professional marketers to do the work for you, you may consider purchasing services through PREMIUM PROMOTIONAL SERVICES (http://www.premiumpromotions.biz ) *You Create – We Promote*.
3.) CREATE RELATIONSHIPS - Through interactions, an established friends/followers/fans occurs, leading to a trust-base connection where clients or potential purchasers WILL purchase.

Marketing through the social media sites cannot be ignored. The Internet is where the potential clients or purchasers are spending their time. Bringing exposure and driving traffic back to the site where your products are sold is the secret to sales.
