Brief Lifespan of Social Media Marketing: The nature of social media is to engage attention of people for a short period of time. A company must design its content in such a way so that it catches the eye of social media users while they are scrolling through the newsfeed. A company must have some catchy headlines, preppy music and colourful template so that it is easier to grab the attention of the users (Grizane and Jurgelane, 2017). Constant Presence on Social Media: The biggest mistake committed by any organisation that is trying to be on social media is to just open the account and put contents up there and thereafter no activities. Social media users constantly look for contents to get engaged (Ahmadinejad et al., 2017). A product-based company should constantly update about their products and engage and influence the users so that the users are hooked into their profile which in turn increases their promotion and chances of sales.
