I know that social media marketing gets a lot of traffic, but really, it is just temporary.

After your post/ad is overwhelmed by other posts, traffic flow stops. It's not really a long term advantage.

 

Any opinions?

I think the main thing is building a "list" of fans or followers just like you build a regular email list. As it grows you can continue to get more results from it, but that's as long as you are not just spammy and actually writing something of value.

I completely agree.

I think more people recognize spammy ads these days anyway.

In my opinion Social Media Marketing is not just about generating new traffic, although of course the more the better, but it’s also about engaging and providing useful information to your audience via Groups and Business Pages as is the case using Facebook.

 

Continuous traffic is very possible, but can be costly...

Very true, this also great for branding yourself and your business due to the social interaction.

It's the personable relationships it allows you to build. 

 

Others are able to see what you do on a day to day basis

and the exemplifies your "human."  That form of marketing

can pull on the most emotion of consumers/customers.

I think it is important to build "brand awareness". It can also be important to build followers and a fan base.

All of the things mentioned are advantages of social media, the huge disadvantage is you are building a group on a site, and getting traffic to a site, you have absolutely no control over. If the site goes away, so does all of your hard work. If your account gets shut down, everything goes "poof". If you don't build a way to keep in touch with all these people through another channel you actually own and control, you play a game of hoping things won't change. Everything changes.

Everything you said is a possibility. It is one of the risks associated with just about any marketing. It is also why I recommend building a list as part of your marketing efforts. Another tack I recommend is branching out your marketing efforts in several directions including email marketing, video marketing, etc. In this way you are not relying entirely on social media.

Social media is a place to build "Yourself" as a brand with correct information about yourself and quality posts. Your own profile picture is important. I find a lot of people putting false pictures of girls to attract contacts.

Also it is important to build personal relationship through chats. When they get to know you through chats then only they join your program.

A good social media is Futurenet. It is free to join but it also has Futureadpro, a revshare system to earn big income.

I agree with you Miki. That is the reason I value Social Media Advertising.

I only buy from People I trust.

 

All the Best

Sometimes people don't know the difference between what is there for them and what is a spammy ad. I get some spam mail that I have to keep directing back to my inbox; I know I will need this information or site at a later date.

The more followers, the more reputation you get. I got really nice stats using free tools like FollowLike or LinkCollider to get followers, retweets and likes.

With 135,000 new twitter members everyday, twitter is an excellent good source of traffic when it used properly.
I have 2,2k followers on my Twitter account where I promote all sort of online marketing business, tools and ideas.

About a tweet you post, you can easily rank it to #1 for a few days in twitter search using #hashtags, a professional image, and an attractive text.

Here is one my recent tweet's stats:

 

Attached File  Untitled.png   49.51KB   1 downloads
 

I've got 4 new sign-ups and 1 active member using this method.
I applied some twitter lessons tips that I've learned from ebook and sites and I can see that it gives nice results without any money spent :)

The most important thing about twitter is to stay active, regularly tweet at least 1 post per day or per 2 days and finally
have a good relationship with your followers.

I think that social media traffic is one of the best source of traffic when used properly.
