Select a company from the list below and find their company’s business page on either Facebook or Instagram. (You may choose a different company with a strong social media presence if you’d like).
Scroll through the company’s Facebook or Instagram feed until you find a post that has a clear goal for the consumer. For example, you might find a post for AllBirds shoes that is advertising a holiday sale (the marketing goal, in this case, might be to drive revenue through a holiday sale).
Take a screenshot of the social media post and include it in your discussion board post. Include answers to the following questions:
