A system and method are disclosed that enable an online real-time ad viewer to interact with an ad assistant for information about the advertised product or service. When the ad viewer opens an ad, the system analyzes and matches a human ad assistant who may be capable of describing the product/service to the user. The system may match ad viewers to ad assistants based on viewer-selected preferences (e.g. talkativeness, personality type, language, cognitive abilities). The online ad viewer could then interact with the ad assistant through a webcam in real-time. The system tailors an online ad experience with a human touch which may lead to more confident purchases by the customer end and makes advertisements more efficient. The system may also provide online job opportunities to those willing to serve as ad assistants across the globe.
