Is It Live, or is it an Infomercial? The Potential for Livestreaming to Revolutionize Content and E-commerce

The COVID-19 pandemic and the quarantines that followed quickly changed the way brands could sell and show off their products, fostering a need for marketers to get inventive with their tactics.
