Creaming butter by hand - beat or cut and fold?

I never, ever bake, so I have no electric mixer. Thus I'm creaming butter by hand. Ought I beat the two together, or cut and fold the two together? I realize the goal is to add air to the mixture, but I'm unsure which is more effective. The former seems like it would beat the air both in and out, the latter seems like it might not add enough air into the mixture.
