As this study progressed we have seen some interesting trends which suggest that social media marketing would become a dominant part of the digital marketing ecosystem. For the purpose of this paper we have referred journals emerald, ebsco and Scopus. Price is a major factor in most purchase decisions and our paper cares to highlight this factor with other important criteria’s. Most companies want to target specific customers which are interested in their product outlines and not waste capital on mindless promotion strategy. Hence social media marketing acts as a powerful tool for corporations which want to directly target their potential customers for their products and services.
