Default Advice- blog or facebook?

Good Morning everyone! In your experience has a blog or starting a business page on facebook been more successful in promoting your business? If it makes a difference- I sell healthy coffee,energy drinks and an organic mushroom supplement.

Thank you

I'd do both. Social media like Facebook is a great way to get high quality targeted traffic. On your Facebook page, you could put a link back to your blog.

Julie,
You definitely want your own web property (blog). But yes you'll want a FB page as well as Twitter, Google+ and I think Pinterest would work good for you too.

I was just thinking how great a blog would be for your business. You could not only promote your business but promote things like coffee makers, specialty mugs and things like that. Is the coffee you sell whole bean? If so, you could promote coffee bean grinders too. Oh the possibilities are endless!

Have fun!

I agree. You need to do it all. Link between your sites to build traffic as well.

When it comes to attraction marketing it is important to have both.

Blogging gets you organic traffic on the website which helps in your branding.

Fanpages is a great way to spread the word about what you are doing where it also gets reached by a lot of people outside of your FB network.
