3. Social media – it’s not going anywhere. Social media continues to become more and more intertwined with marketing. As it grows, it goes hand in hand for the need for quality content. There will be an increased need for diversity with social media, which means diversity in the content you’re going to need to produce to accurately apply to different platforms.
