    Most good digital marketing is done without using Social Media
    No it's not. Your ranking will not improve because you use SMM.

    Without social media, its not possible to generate traffic in the modern time. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter is best in Social media optimization if done properly.

    That’s 100% incorrect. Amazon, eBay and millions of other sites do ok without social media.

    Yes, social media is the right place for lead generation. You can increase your brand awareness and also generate leads. If you are in the fashion industry then Facebook and Instagram are more preferable, if you a B2B industry then LinkedIn is the right platform. Whatever the platform you use it's your strategy that generates leads. Post regularly and relevantly with eye-catching images at the right time to the right targetted audience.

    That's 100% incorrect. Amazon, eBay, and all big brands do Social Media nowadays. Whenever I check my social account there are lots of ads from Amazon, Flipkart(India's second-best shopping site), AJIO, Alibaba, any many more corporate giants. This is because they think remarketing is one of the best ways to get customers.

    Social Media takes tremendous amount of time. You have to establish relationships one at a time

    Yes, Social Media is helpful for B2B business. It helps in building brand trust and educate buyers to help them better understand the factors to make a buying decision.

    In 2020, Social Media are amazing when we talk about business point of view and Instagram is one of my favorite platforms and it works In lots of businesses. Some digital geeks suggest that we should try Linkedin and Pinterest for paid campaigning with low budgets.

    Yes, I have used social media for one of our customers who was selling Furniture Online. I was doing social media posting and Facebook advertising for them. And, they have got a very good ROI from Social Media. Even Google ads didn't produce that level of ROI which I got for the customer with Facebook Advertising.

    social media is so much helpful for the business. you can easily promote your business around the world easily and make your brand or business name popular. But it is possible if you have a huge number of followers or likes.
    You can also reach your targeted audience easily with the help of social media.

    You have to find the right platform. If you're selling B2B then linkedIn is best. If you're B2B Instagram or Facebook or Tik Tok are best. I use LinkdIn to great effect - I've got over 12000 leads from it in two and a half years. A lot of people don't realize that when you connect with someone you can see their email. Simply export name and email address and add to your mailing list.

    For lead generation, you can join Facebook and Linkedin platform. You can make images, videos about your service or brand, and share it with social media sites.

    I would say the opposite is true. SM can get you a lot of views but they rarely translate into leads. If you want targeted website traffic there are better ways to do this.
