Creating simple content that is honest is more effective in attracting more readers to the pages of the products you are promoting. When you promote products through social media, you should focus much more on the quality of the content than on the sale of products as such. If you manage to do this in an effective way, you will get much more readers to visit your pages where the products you are selling are.
