    Great post Robin and welcome to Magnet4Marketing. I definitely agree; when I started my online art business over 6 years ago, the only way I could generate traffic was through tireless SEO and search engine marketing. That coupled with some costly advertising. Social media has brought a whole new meaning to driving traffic to my online art business, and with the careful incorporation of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube I was able to generate lots more traffic, which many converted into sales. I for one don’t think that I could go back to just relying on SEO.

      SEO is tiring you are right but SEO is also one of the thing we can really bring you some good results.
      Where as social media marketing is just to put some extra effort while consuming less time.

      • Fabrizio Van Marciano says:

        Yes of course, you’re right, SEO is without a doubt of paramount importance and can certainly create a long term impact on your business online, back when social media was little heard of it was a struggle and a chore so today the combination of good SEO and the boost of social media certainly helps.

  4. Samantha Wright says:

    So the content needs to be interesting or resourceful enough to go viral right? where as SEO can take care of that social media has no guarantees but not to use it would be ludicrous.
