    Social media marketing is effective for both branding and leads generating. For B2B, linkedin is the most effective way for lead generating. Facebook is an useful channel for branding and customer interaction. It's my experience.

    Social Media can help you share or update any news about your business any day and any day. It won't take much time to pass that post across the users.

    Surely social media is a helpful tool as now a days almost every person across the globe have access to the social media so one can easily target the niche one is planning to set for his target market.

    You can target a niche but converting this into a sale isn't easy. People mainly use SM sites for entertainment or engage with friends, they don't use it as a springboard for buying something. The platforms have become saturated with businesses marketing their products and services.

    Well for me social media is the Best way for brand promotion. It helps you connect with the customers and create a lasting impression. many social media platforms and forums are created where a brand can directly interact with the Customer and can address the customers grievances.

    How are you doing this? Unless people know about you they aren't going to ever see your posts.

    Yes off course !
    Social media platform can actually scale your business to several folds.

    *Firstly make a attractive profile on social media platform that reflect about your services.
    *Create call to action or message to action button.
    *Use the ads service of these platform like Instagram Ads, Facebook Ads etc. to target your audience.

    We at Ashoka Group run Facebook Ads on daily basis for our focused keyword and we saw a rapid growth in our leads.

    Isn't it a ironic that a marketing company has to ask this question...

    It depends on what type of marketing Giraffe Marketing does. According to their profile, they are located in Manchester, but it doesn't say where. A search of "giraffe marketing Manchester" reveals both a social media company and an SEO provider. In both cases it wouldn't be ironic, but would make one wonder about the quality of their services. There is a "Manchester" in both New Hampshire and Connecticut here in the US. Adding "nh" to the search term does not result in any listing for "Giraffe Marketing", but adding "ct" gives a listing for "Direct Giraffe Marketing", which does offer Facebook Advertising. Once again, one wonders why they would ask the question, when they actual sell social media advertising.
    Leaving out any location information results in a listing for both companies mentioned above, and a LinkedIn page for a company with the same name as the BAF member, but the logo is different, so that's definitely not them.
    Which still leaves us with a question - why would a company that sells social media advertising ask whether it is worth it to buy their services?
