It's part of a mix of tools you should use in getting traffic and attention to your service. It certainly makes it easier to get your word out. You can also try other methods such as:
  • paid search
  • television, radio, print
  • banner advertising
  • white paper marketing
  • conferences and presentations

The key to social media is striking a conversation with your users and audience.

There's no easy secret weapon to marketing and getting an audience.

Hi Emilio,

Yes social media if used in the correct way is a great way to start generating targeted traffic to your business. I have provided some very basic information below which I am sure will assist you within this area. However as the other post mentions social media should only be one of the tools that you use, you should also look at other marketing activities to generate traffic to your business.

I would need to know more about what your business is and what your product or service is but I would also look at SEO and also possibly networking in your local area.

If you need any further assistance please just let me know
