Poll above, let me know what you think. If you have any experience of these providers, let me know below, I'd be curious to hear of your experiences!

For me, other. I had massive success with Reddit for a political niche. I'd recommend it to anyone, but only if you have a niche that's commonly-discussed on Reddit.

Adwords has been good for me on occasion, but it has to be set up properly. You can't just throw money at Adwords and expect it to work, it requires monitoring and constant alterations until you find the perfect formula.

This post is absolutely amazing because I have also been finding various ways to trigger our sales graph. I think that with the help of Google AdWords Pay Per Click Advertising technique, my competitors have been earning really well, so I would like to use this technique. Hopefully I will get good results.

For a local company like a dog walker or hairdresser, Facebook is the way forward. But it will depend allot on if the person setting the ads up know what they are doing.

I think the key to Facebook advertising is to focus on a particular local market and specific age/interest groups. That way, in theory you should get the best return on investment.

It’s difficult to pick just one.

I think an integrated online marketing strategy tends to perform best, because your brand and your message will be visible on various platforms.

I’ve seen a stat somewhere that says it takes 3 or 4 engagements before a prospect becomes a customer, so with that in mind, branding in various platforms, and being as highly targeted as possible, to avoid wasting money, is for me the best option.

Unfortunately, all of the ones I have tried on that list have proved to be useless although it may well be that the marketing campaigns were not focused enough. Search engine optimisation is the best form of marketing as far as I'm concerned.
