    If you want to gain customers the faster way then start with SMM since social media is a hit nowadays. And SMM is a strategy that uses social media such as FB, Instagram, YouTube, etc. to gather traffic.

    While SEO takes time to build since it gains website traffic through organic search results.

    I would say both because SEO helps you to rank your website on google search engine and bring traffic to your website while SMM- social media marketing is really important for brand awareness and growth.

    Agree, you should definitely start from SMM(any that is popular in your country) and in the same time you can develop your brand using SEO, in will bring you traffic after some time. So, SMM first

    To me this isn't an either-or proposition. Your on-website code should be optimized for accessibility thanks to semantic markup of content of value -- which is by default the be-all end-all of on-side SEO. Your off-site search optimization should include anyplace that will give you a back-link to your site. As such, social media marketing isn't just a means of driving traffic unto and of itself, it's also part of your off-site search promotion as it's a way of helping build "organic" backlinks.

    Start with SMM as that can bring quicker results.
    Also optimize the site for SEO, although don't count on it too much because most sites do not get ranked for anything important.
    However, if you are one of the few providers of this service in your country, then SEO can really do miracles.

    Good suggestion. But would it really make a difference if you focus on SMM first?

    Make sure your website is 100% optimized for the search engines, and then focus on social media marketing to build a following and promote your business. Is it a local food delivery service? If so, then you can focus on local SEO as well, and get your business listed in all the local directories. It would also be incredibly important for you to set up a Google and Bing business listing.

    SMM would be fairly easy for your type of business, as you can produce new content daily with photos of the food, recipes, reviews, etc. Get creative with it and stay consistent.

    Nice suggestions. Good thing to bumped into this thread. I am learning, very informative. Just question, isn't it the SEO result is pretty difficult to achieve, it takes time. Would that mean I have to wait to establish my SEO before I could start SMM?

    Being an SEO entrepreneur, I will suggest you go with SEO as it is effective. In the beginning, it will take time for conversion but if you use SEO in the correct way you will reach up to your goals.

    No, don't wait. Basically focus on on-page SEO to optimize your site 100%. Every time you post an an article, product, new page, etc - make sure its optimized with headings, meta description, page title, img alt descriptions, etc.

    At the same time, you should be creating social pages and updating them daily with new content. Learn to create engaging social posts. This will get you traffic faster, especially if you use proper hashtags and post often. Ideally, you would post on every social network 10 times a day. That might sound extreme, but the results are amazing, so aim for posting as often as possible. Learn to schedule your social media posts if it makes it easier for you.

    Then, you can start looking for sites to guest post on. This will get you relevant do-follow backlinks, and sometimes you can post on a relevant website for free, but often you will have to pay to post. Still, it's worth it. Just make sure it's relevant to your niche and also make sure the website you're thinking about posting on isn't full of spammy/junk content from other guest posters.

    Over time, your guest blogging and social media efforts will bring in more SEO results, as you will start getting backlinks naturally without even asking for them. The following you build on social media will guarantee traffic as long as you post consistently. So stick with it, and you will end up with traffic from search engines and social media.
