SEM or search engine marketing is better compared to SMM or social media optimization. The later helps to optimize your website in social networking websites and generate traffic, but SEM helps to promote your website in various search engines and build keyword ranking and also generate good traffic to your website.

They Both are different and have different needs.
SMM is a long term project and needs patience  to see the results.
SEM is a brisk marketing activity that is used to gather quick traffic from paid advertisements.

Depends on what your business is exactly, but SEO is much better in most cases than social media marketing... why? simply because when people are using social media, they are not out to buy things, but to socialize, while when people use search engines they are specifically looking for (your) business.... social media is used by marketers mostly to build there brand, not to make a profit there directly, and you will be seen as a spammer if you only focus on social media for your business and likely fail big

SEM ( Serch engine marketing) are paid advertisements that show up in a highlighted box at the top of the page when a user conduct a search. SMM stands for social media marketing and could be anything from paid Facebook advertisements to Twitter promotions, but basically involves an internet marketing company telling you how to best leverage your social media platforms for advertising purposes.

SEM focuses on these main areas: Pay Per Click, Keyword Research and organic SEO.
And SMM focusing on: Influencer marketing, social networking, brand and sentiment optimization and social ad management.
I yhink that there is no "the best one" between these two and it all depends on your product or service, your audience, your goals, etc.

Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is one of the most cost-efficient ways to reach a target market for businesses of all sizes. Traditional marketing such as catalog mail, trade magazines, direct mail, TV, or radio involves passive participation by your audience and targeting can vary greatly from one medium to another. As for me, SMM better! It is one of the best and popular ways to develop your traffic and sites!

It depends, If you are looking for quick business in minimum time then SEM is the best technique to generate instant business and on the other hand social media marketing is a way to promote your site services and increase your brand awareness in targeted audience.
