Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Consumer Marketing

There is a growing sophistication of Internet users, who are spending less time at portals and directly seeking specialized content at more focused sites. The consumer market is clearly fragmenting.


Not too long ago CBS, NBC and ABC networks controlled over 90% of all broadcast dollars due to their mass consumer reach. As cable television gave consumers choice, networks share of broadcast dollars declined. Today, this number continues to fall and network television gets less than 50% of broadcast advertising dollars. As well, television has lost broadcast dollars to other media, primarily the Internet.
