In the land of technology and digital marketing the thing that most online marketers pride themselves on is visual marketing. When Bitstrips came on the scene in 2013, it was an instant Facebook sensation.

With the popularity of Bitstrips, the comic app took it one step further by creating Bitmoji, combining the popular comics of Bitstrips with emojis.
