Because we're going to be watching how many people. Yeah. Let's not going to be a message that would be very comfortably achieved even by be digital -- that they don't wanna be told. That you know in this -- but it they love doing the journal -- He -- and cheaper or. Were superficial way I'm a doctorate in the challenge really competitors trying to. Feel -- what is that that makes people like -- that that we can tell the story -- meaningful in ways that are. They'll point out that traffic in a written by the media promotion and and not on that. They think a lot of where student and then lot of that the courses Weller focusing on the -- and how do you social media -- Smart way to get -- Click traffic. Even wilder. Even while we're. Doing stories are more meaningful and yet I want that nano and we wanna teach.

Once again the business they've given the assignment. On one side of a very serious news and cal let's say the Malaysian. Airplane flight and and their relative. On the other side and they say and don't forget that -- a lot of clinics were -- -- -- they do there. Yeah so there a couple comments -- you know real. Just. Fundamental thing you need to be need to write it very clear in the complete and then you know computer short while -- repeat a line. Don't generate the election and we know that. We don't need images every single story that we put on search engines really like in the especially switching from media aren't you need and in the -- and on video or or or. Still -- You've -- idea we were training them and these are multiple platform. Creation. So they know that these these different multiple media and fundamentally sound or are going to naturally get more attention.

And the realities of -- right on line it that it it's really just very low rate that you'll find banner -- Man in the typical web advertising. So -- and and the organization though okayed them or collect data on the dollar currently out -- you go out. And naturally. That -- and while we're getting paid -- turnaround phase. There are on their prayers internal. Perplexed to. Armed so you'd -- You do it on the head at that that's it's an economic reality it's driving that and and they're coming out -- -- -- and be. It's -- readers in the audience occur. Not willing to pay an extra premium -- not for the they were all there are. You know being like that.
