Strategies for becoming a fully functional E-businessThis book provides executives, managers, and entrepreneurs with practical ideas and techniques that will help them improve the way they implement and manage E-commerce and E-business. The authors have been E-business strategy consultants for over a decade, and this book is based on their experiences working with hundreds of Fortune 500 companies and dot com startups. The book is filled with examples of how companies across industries have used the Internet to sell in business-to-business E-marketplaces, as well as direct to consumers, and the problems they have encountered in the process. The book also covers many topics that other E-business books miss, including the impact of the Net's underground economy and how to involve customers emotionally with a Web-based business.David Taylor and Alyse Terhune (Stamford, CT) founded eMarket Holdings, LLC, an E-business strategy consulting firm in 1999.
