  1. Login to Blogger Account
  2. Goto Theme > Edit HTML
  3. Add following code before </head> tag
<script type="text/javascript">cookieChoices = {};</script>

This code will disable default blogger cookie consent.

  4. Marketing is essential to promote and grow your business, and marketing today can be divided into two broad categories: Traditional Marketing and Internet Marketing. In recent years, some have argued that traditional marketing no longer works, and that Digital Marketing is gradually replacing it. Before I offer my view on this, I will share some of the differences between traditional and digital marketing, including the pros and cons of each.
