AT&T has launched a popular series of amusing advertisements called “Just OK Is Not OK”.

In this campaign, the world's largest telecommunications company, created situations where a service provider is telling a concerned client that they are "OK" at their work.

Keep this clever campaign in mind when updating your professional or business profile for 2019.
