You need to show the algorithm of the network, that you have consistency, that you have focus, and that the content and ads generate engagement and that takes time. As a minimum term, campaigns of 4 months are suggested, but in reality, once the brand is uploaded to social networks, the process must be continuous and never be suspended.
