If you had to pick between email marketing and social marketing, which would you choose and why?

Email marketing, because you own your list.

Unfortunately social media accounts can and do get shut down. (In fact as I’m writing this I’m working on getting the instagram account I just set up for Paperbell re-enabled - have absolutely no idea why it was shut down!)

You can build up 500k likes on Facebook and they can remove that page tomorrow. With emails you have access to the raw data.

Email and social media marketing are wonderful complements to each other, but if I had only one: email.
