Tell-A-Friend and Share Scripts
Social media website setup and support
Tell-a-friend and share scripts are called social
media networks or marketing. Social marketing refers to marketing techniques that use pre-existing social networks to produce increased brand awareness or sales through sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Myspace, YouTube, Flickr, "tell-a-friend" emails and many others.
