Working Paper: Securing Online Advertising—Rustlers and Sheriffs in the New Wild West

http://hbswk.hbs.edu/item/6043.htmlDownload the paper. Online advertising remains a "Wild West" where users are faced with ads they ought not believe and where firms overpay for ads without getting the results they were promised.

This chapter summarizes some of what he has found, and what users and advertisers can do to protect themselves.



Not that these departments are in any way separated; ethical firewalls are not this industry’s style. Despite the professionalization of the past decade, the art world still likes to think of itself as one big Love Boat. Night after night critics and collectors scarf down meals paid for by dealers promoting artists, or museums promoting shows, with everyone together at the table, schmoozing, stroking, prodding, weighing the vibes.





Africa? The Mediterranean? The Middle East? South Beach? It’s hard to pinpoint the exact vibe of this country.
