The Bloo Network
was started in 2008 as a subsidiary of Online Media Diva, Inc. While the network of sites encompassed by Bloo had existed previously under the auspices of Online Media Diva, the move to formalize it as a separate entity began late in 2007. Now fully self sufficient, the network has grown considerably, and provided a new level of control and focus for our clients campaigns. From the beginning, charity has been a central part of the Bloo business philosophy. Now, by bringing the dedication to customer service that made Online Media Diva such a success, to the charity driven Bloo Network, we bring a new dimension to ROI.
