I love social media and find it both helpful and effective. I use Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Pinterest and occasionally LinkedIn. I get a good amount of traffic from Pinterest. I think Facebook is the most powerful for building relationships, but blogging has been the most lucrative for me.

I use Facebook a lot! I am also working on getting others set up. I think Social Media is an amazing way to reach people. There are so many people into social media that it is impossible not to reach some people!!

I also love social media. It's a great way to connect with others and to get quality traffic to your sites and blogs.

I'm active on social media - I have a Facebook Business page just for communicating to customers, personal Facebook which gets a business post every now and again, a personal Twitter handle that I use for business all the time, and a blog that I'm only able to share very scarcely while it goes through approval with out corporate office.

I have found, though, that the blog has been the most beneficial. It allows people to go a little deeper, hear more of my voice, and find the information that they're looking for in my words.

I also try to move conversations offline quickly - I'm a big fan of snail mail full of goodies and samples!

Most of my prospects come from forums, blog posts and social media posting. ALL my prospects contact me, so yes, I find them all very effective.

If you are looking for fast results, I would advice you to go with pay per click advertising.

For Facebook, I would use their pay per click platform because if you are going to build relationships with people there, it is going to take you some time to build your business to what ever level that you want.
