Social media usage has found itself at an all-time high amid this COVID-19 lockdown, so it is worth considering these other avenues for brand marketing as brands are able to reach their audiences online to boost their engagement, according to Social Media Today.

Facebook Messenger is one option to consider.

According to a new inforgraph from Branex, this medium is used by around 31% of brands and businesses in their efforts to reach their audiences.
