Description

It is estimated that over 61 million adults in the US and over 100 million worldwide are using the Internet. That is an incredible market for the business person savvy enough to tap into it.

This new media has its own rules, requirements, and specifications. It offers possibilities no other media offers, interactivity being one of them. Implementing the Internet in business has its own administrative demands. It must be integrated to existing company policies and marketing strategies and must be managed efficiently for it to be profitable.

Finding your way through the numerous services, software offers, hardware options and so on is not always easy since much of the information is found in numerous places and is very technical.

It is geared towards managers of all levels who want to take full advantage of the potential the Internet has to offer.
