SEC data provider EDGAR Online Inc. signed with ORB Digital as its advertising agency of record.

ORB will direct a multi-million dollar advertising campaign (spending specifics were not disclosed) to promote the company online as well as on television and in print media. The full campaign begins in October.

"We have been working with ORB for the past four months to develop the kind of coordinated campaign that will bring our company to the attention of new subscribers and corporate clients," said Jay Sears, vice president of marketing and business development for EDGAR Online.

"We have now given ORB the final go-ahead to begin each portion of the campaign."
