In response, Deputy Chancellor I of the Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia Dr. H Mahathir Muhammad SE MM said, digital marketing has indeed become a necessity for those who have businesses.

Marketing in this way is considered capable of targeting a wider market share. In addition, the cost is also affordable.

The condition, he said, was of course to present interesting marketing content.

Mahathir gave special attention to Karang Taruna. He hopes that the Youth Organizations in the village will be able to become pioneers and movers in the community.
