Viral Marketing Done Right!
I’ve been around the viral marketing scene for almost 20 years, and what Vee has done with Nightmares is at the top of my list of amazing. So good in fact, that I spotlighted him in one of my books as the example of how to do viral marketing right. Besides being a good guy and smart as a whip, he understands community and viral marketing better than most.
