eCommerce Digest's Services

Selling online? Then you'll know the problems.

More companies using your keywords. More companies with online selling advantages you can't match: bulk supplies, automated systems, teams of marketing specialists, click-through spends of tens of thousands monthly. All aimed to see you out of business — even more so now the economic downturn has sharpened competition. . .

So our previous website.

Today, ten years on, we offer a good deal more: Internet business models, strategies, case studies and summaries of technical matters. All in the usual succinct and easy-to-follow style that has been a hit with students, business people, entrepreneurs and institutions in 60 countries across the world. Best of all, it's entirely free.

More than that, we give you the real picture. No sensible business person now relies on the mainstream press, but gets their information from specialist blogs, trade magazines and research journals. You must read wider and think deeper to stand any chance of beating the competition since, contrary to assertions, ecommerce is anything but easy. Most Internet companies had a difficult birth, and some are rumored to have had clandestine state support. We try to set you on the right path.
