Amidst the lockdown, the companies are trying to deal with the situation more smartly and progressively. The Companies are organizing webinars and optimizing their digital spaces mostly focusing on their online B2B marketing and PR strategies to live through the dark days and as people are likely to consume online content and spend most of their time on social media companies are hiring people who can monitor their online platforms and carry out their online operations.
