Effective Social Media Marketing is Blogging, NOT Twitter

Dan Zarella, a Social Media Scientist at HubSpot, is quoted as saying:

The next time you hear a social media myth, question it. Ask for the proof, and ask out loud.

More people should take his advise because many claims about the effectiveness of using social media networking websites to generate leads for your business are flat out misleading.

Although it is true that you can generate leads for your business by tweeting, the number of leads you will generate for the number of hours of effort you put into it pales by comparison to business blogging.
