Furthermore, even small and medium business entities also began to think of using the internet as a medium to promote their products via online advertising(Ronald& Barbara, 2002). Now-a-days, online advertising plays a crucial role in the advertising mix of almost all business organizations(Lages 2004). This has enabled, the small, medium or large business organizations can deliver the product information, price, purchase terms, delivery of goods to customers, ordering and payment methods, etc., to their prospective customers directly without the boundaries of time and place.
