In the past couple of years, live streaming has seen “99% year-over-year growth” and shows no signs of stopping.

Experiential Marketing in the Metaverse

As social distancing restrictions lift, everyone is itching to get back to in-person activities—including marketers. With the increased hype of virtual reality and the metaverse blurring the lines between digital and in-person reality, social media marketers will jump at the chance to start hosting in-person events again, complete with virtual reality elements like filters and virtual locations.
