Most of us remember the time when business communication moved away from TV advertisements and sales phone calls to email campaigns and banner ads. This too, eventually evolved into social media campaigns and more subtle search engine PPC ads. While none of these previous methods have been fully left behind, the marketing environment and attitude of customers is shifting once again away from text as a whole and toward conversational apps and videos.
