It can be clearly seen from the figure that the expenditure of customers in the social media in the past ten years has grown from fifty dollars in 2008 to four hundred seventy dollars in 2017, increased 80%. From offline to online marketing, the brand has achieved twenty-fours service.

The customers who prefer to buy this product are in high-density, fast-paced urban areas, and the climate is also very important.
