Depends what is your objective. E.g if you run your resort, your goal should be to get the property listed on every single travel website and directory you can think of, and start focusing on reviews.

Both seo can help you to retain your brand citation while Facebook can give you brand awareness in a quick time. SEO is the long play, can’t beat the quality. Paid Social/Search is the lead gen/ branding quick play, AB testing, extend your audience, test repeat and optimize.

Neither matters unless you know how to address your consumer’s needs in an authentic & human way. Also, note that majority of your consumers won’t convert straight away. Send them on a journey where they get served a series of different messages tailored to each stage of the buyer cycle. Just make sure it’s value that you’re offering upfront (NOT an sales pitch).

  • Rory Ramsden That is the truth.. and there is another way to do content marketing than following the old slow seo route which costs dimes on the dollar and get’s your content seen by the most important people… The ones in your funnel

Use FB paid advertising to boost and accelerate your SEO efforts.

seo is time advertising is money- Time+Money=equa

Depends on what you’re good at. There are people who are crushing it with fb ads and there are people who are crushing it with SEO.

But there’s so much more available with FB ads than getting traffic to your blog.

Do that first and get some reviews—even if it’s like 5 on one big site, then emphasize that in your first round of Facebook ads.

FPA for quick results – SEO is a long term game. Seo is a long term strategy, paid ads is short term. For seo to be really effective you need to spend a lot of time on it and you’ll only see results maybe after. A couple years

  • For quick results Paid ads, Facebook and Google ads. For long term high quality leads, go with SEO, be prepared to wait up to 3 to 6 months for page 1 rankings though, it will also depend on how competitive your market is.

    I agree with most of the above that, from a generic perspective, a balanced approach is good (i.e. leveraging both); however, SEO won’t always fit the needs or provide the ROI that FB will, making it arguably a waste of budget. The same goes for FB. There are a lot of variables to consider behind that question and a universal answer doesn’t exist so each scenario will be distinctly different in how you allocate budget to both avenues, or whether you allocate solely to one or the other.Hide or report this
