The COVID-19 outbreak has led to drastic measures being taken, such as travel restrictions and the Movement Control Order in Malaysia, for example. To curb the spread of COVID-19, employees worldwide have been working from home as an effort to practice social distancing.

According to a recent study by R3, now more than ever, both marketers and agencies will be looking for ways to manage cost, increase effectiveness, and explore innovative ways for reaching audiences. The study added that new skills have to be learned to communicate capability in a virtual environment.
