If you want faster results and have the money to spare, choose PPC. If you're diligent and have limited income, pick organic SEO. If you like to engage people, then use SMO (social media optimization).

Effectiveness lies in HOW you work on your Internet Marketing.

If you are starting out with no customer database, the most effective advertising will be the one which places you closest to the buying intent of your target audience, which in most of the case will be search marketing (either search engine optimization or pay-per-click search ads).

If your keywords having high competition then you can use PPC and if your keywords are quite less competitive then you can do SEO which will give you results in 3 to 4 months.

If you want to invest, I'd say go with SEO and contnue with email marketing, for sure.
If you're looking to establish an image, you can advertise through social media, be careful to be present at all times.

Best of luck!
