Online Advertising: Turn-on? Or Turn-off?
From music sites to beauty products to sleep aids, we've enthusiastically ventured into cyberspace with our share of online advertising projects. And as marketers, it's been fascinating.

That fact that Ojo, or any other client, wants to tap into the online market makes abundant sense. Consumers spend hours--and millions of dollars--online every day.
