The digital marketing industry had mixed reactions with many voicing concerns over Vodafone competing with local digital agencies and freelancers.
A digital marketing expert told Digital Boom that it’s too early to predict the outcome of the new service, but questioned whether Vodafone will be able to handle the expected influx of requests and maintain quality at the same time, emphasizing that social media shouldn’t be about the quantity of posts.
