1. In the era of the COVID-19 epidemic, Thai consumers have increased access to online information. That means the number of people who have access to more advertising media.

In terms of doing business both inside and outside the country Therefore, everyone must adjust themselves to adjust their views, including adjusting the strategic plan to suit the current situation. In order to move forward and create efficiency and effectiveness in doing business as much as possible In this regard, marketers must not forget about the support of working with society that can extend business opportunities in the future as well.
