There has been a rise in the consumption of digital media, that is, the likes of social media and the internet etc. Every day more and more people sign up for different social media platforms like facebook, twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp just to name a few.
The importance of these social media platforms cannot be stressed enough cause they help in a lot of ways, and most for bloggers and other content creators as it brings them closer to the consumers of content.

It also helps run targetted campaigns and promoting content. Am sure you have seen this around where you are just scrolling around then you see a post written “sponsored” that is how social media helps.
