This book is a delightful result of Frederick Newell’s recent indoctrination in marketing through the World Wide Web. Newell is an internationally acclaimed professional and part-time academic who specializes in database marketing. He admits in his preface that he’s a bit of a "geezer" - because his 1997 book, The New Rules of Marketing, lacked a Web component, which undermined its newness. In an effort to rectify that, he reconciles the impressive database-mining and customer relationship concepts from his earlier book with today’s rapidly changing cyber-marketing theories and practices. Newell clearly is excited by what he has belatedly learned about the Web’s potential, and provides on-target case studies to support his points. getAbstract recommends this book to all marketers - especially to those in retail. Those who are new to Web business will find it particularly useful.
In this summary, you will learn
- How, used appropriately, customer relationship management can boost your online sales;
- Why free coupons and special offers are not enough to maintain customer loyalty; and
- Why listening and learning from your customers is more important than telling and selling.
