Conclusion

The era of direct advertising isn’t working with people, that what social media proved over the last 8 year. If you are on social media to promote your products in a traditional way, you’re mistaken. You need you listen more and discover opportunities by yourself. Get engaged quickly and the most important “Smarty” to win the heart and the mind of your customers. It’s social media gentlemen.
