How to Answer
The interviewer asks this question because as social media platforms mature, they have started requiring payment to allow companies' targeted audiences to see their content. Some marketers have expressed dissatisfaction with this trend and refuse to adapt to it, but others have embraced it, recognizing how it can further enhance their targeting and reach. As a progressive marketer, it's essential to know why paid social promotions are helpful.

If you take the position that paid ad campaigns are not useful, your answer will be considered to be wrong. While paid campaigns don't always deliver perfect results, sponsored content will ever gain priority over that which is not.
