Kehinde Olofintuyi, a digital media consultant, explained that the pandemic and its effect made it mandatory for businesses to leverage opportunities in the online space generally and digital marketing covering social media, content, and email marketing among others to scale.
“Things are no longer the same ever since the world experienced a major shift. A large number of companies moved their advertising budget to the online space where despite restrictions in movement, their ads were served on various social media platforms as seen on several mobile phones every second,” he said.
“According to a recent prediction by Forbes, social media will become a top channel for purchase, instead of just discovery. It is happening now as several brands are leveraging online advertising to engage their target audience, drive the necessary engagement and convert leads to customers,” he further said.
