Social Media
Her marketing strategy? The element of surprise and word of mouth.

Beyonce promoted her album by using word of mouth advertising. She spent NO money to advertise her new album, she did no promotion marketing, yet sold hundreds of thousands of copies of her s album in several hours.

All Beyonce did was post a short video on Instagram & Facebook announcing her new album was available on iTunes. You and the rest of her fans networked to market her album all over Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.

Network marketing, simply put, is word of mouth advertising. That's it. Sharing products and/or services with others. If you've ever told someone about a restaurant you went to, a movie you saw, a new cell phone you bought...really anything and they then go to that restaurant, see that movie, ect...you've done network marketing! Now I'm sure you probably just realized that you and EVERYONE else in the world does network marketing every day, you just don't get PAID for it. And that is the point I'm driving home here. If you do network marketing every day, why not also get paid for it?
