Pinterest is a good place to get traffic. But as well as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, G+ and Instagram also can give you lots of traffic. Make a proper strategy and target people according to that.

I prefer Facebook because it has a really powerful analytics system and it gives you access to a lot of data that you can use for targeting. But again, it depends on your industry and your market =)

It completely depends on your niche and where your target audience hangs out.

Product sales usually do best on visual sites like Pinterest, Instagram and sometimes FB; LinkedIn for B2B; FB does great for CPA; Twitter for signups and traffic; YouTube for gaming (and more), etc. They can all be interchangeable but some aren't worth as much of your effort as others.

Follow the trail to your target audience's preferred social site and that is your perfect social media platform. But make sure that your posts or where they lead, are of high quality that offers value.

Excellent summary! Thanks, @azgold!

Don't know whether this would help or not but if you're targeting a more younger audience (16-19) then Instagram would be a good platform to look into. Most people in this age group have Instagram as it's almost a must to when you're that age.

But that isn't the issue. The question is, where will people go to look for the product or service you sell?

I browse Twitter to look for information and occasionally breaking news, but I don't go there to search for products.

I use all those that you mentioned and some to promote mine and I'm getting enough traffic from those. My tip is to really know your target audience, start with finding the right audience for the kind of niche that you have.

If you are clear about your Target audience you can reach them through Facebook. Facebook drives huge traffic to your website.

I used to do share all my posts in all social media but facebook only brings me more traffic.

Depends on your niche.

Facebook does work well for many people and many industries, but others do well with Instagram or Pinterest.

For me, I think I get the best response from Facebook and Twitter.

For WHICH targeted audience?
Exactly! There's no question that FB has tons of traffic but if your audience is hanging out somewhere else, you're wasting your time, energy and (if you're using paid promoting) money.

Are you B2C or B2B ... I find that Facebook can sometimes be slow going for B2B.

Do you have something you can give away that relates to your business and that is shareable? If so, a Facebook competition works very well. You can get a free months trial at Click Funnels and put together a simple landing page that talks about your give away / competition and collects people's email addresses.

You can then create a post on your Facebook page that links to your landing page and boost that post in Facebook by spending a $100 bucks or so, you will get some viral traffic that way.

You then have dozens of people that you can email about your services / products.

A second idea would be to hold a free training webinar for your target customer, and promote it the same as above.

Good luck.

Create interesting activities on your social media to attracts viewers to take interest in your blog and page. Some giveaways and interaction with people will definitely increase traffic for your blog. Important thing then is the quality of content of your blog, If quality of your blog is poor then there will be no returning traffic.

Facebook has a ton of awesome and unique targeting options for FB Marketing ads you won’t find elsewhere. You can target audiences by location, age, gender, workplace, relationship status, language, education and more. So i recommend that you should go for facebook marketing...

Hi,
Well, for this i trust LinkedIn because i believe that you can find much more intellectual audience there as compared to other platforms.
