A top international authority on Web marketing and e-commerce provides a sure-fire formula for developing a winning e-commerce marketing strategy
One of the biggest reasons why so many Internet-based businesses fail isn't poor product or service, or technology failures, or even lack of funding. As Internet marketing guru Ralph F. Wilson explains in this ground-breaking book, a preponderance of e-business failures can be traced back to a lack of know- ledge about the Internet's full potential as a marketing and sales tool. With the help of case studies of outstanding e-business successes and failures, Wilson describes how to develop four, core e-business marketing competencies. Readers learn how to develop a USP, clarify goals, and perform analysis and customer profiling. They also learn how to perform product positioning; develop a balanced promotional mix; provide lifetime customer value; and much more.
Ralph F. Wilson (Loomis, CA) is the founding editor of three popular e-business publications read by 130,000 subscribers in 130 countries: Web Marketing Today, Web Commerce Today, and Doctor Ebiz.
"...contains a great deal of sensible advice..." (Marketing, 14 March 2002)
"...easy text with hands on advice that could prove useful to the beginner as well as the more experienced person." (M2 Communications, 19 April 2002)
He does give some very useful information about Internet marketing and talks about applying generally accepted marketing principles to the Internet, which are ok.
I think the title fits when it says "planning" strategy and helps the user to just that, but stops short of giving really concrete information to act on or execute the plan once it is done.
Overall I think the book was just average. Not terrible, but not really great either.
Several things make Planning Your Internet Marketing Stratgegy unique. First, in contrast to so many books, it lives up to its premise. The first 21 chapters explore various aspects of creating an internet strategy. Each chapter ends with questions and things for you to think about and answer on paper. These chapters provide the meat and potatoes for you to pull together in the formal, written Internet Marketing Plan that you create in Chapter 22.
Second, Planning Your Internet Marketing Strategy is as much a resource guide as it is a friendly, extremely well-written guide. Each chapter contains numerous web site resources for you to explore as you read the book. This is one book you won't want to read in bed, (unless you have a laptop) because you'll be constantly tempted to check out a recommended web site.
The field of Internet Marketing has spawned a slew of self-styled experts. Dr. Ralph F. Wilson is not a self-proclaimed expert new to the web. He has been involved since its inception. His knowledge is based on now only his own experiences but also the accumulated knowledge of the more than 9,000 articles that he has compiled are in his (...) database.
What I like best about Planning Your Internet Marketing Strategy is the way Dr. Wilson has synthesized great amounts of "classical" marketing theory with the vast amount of Internet-specific information he's learned while compiling his 9,000 article database. No other author can make such a claim. Because of his hands-on eperience, he's worth listening to.
The result is a "must read" for anyone interested in creating a web site that works...as well as anyone who is interested in a good, solid, readable introduction to marketing.
