From the Editor – December 2007 eBiz Insider magazine. Download the complete issue as a PDF by clicking here.
I can’t believe it’s almost over! As they say in television, “there’s another one in the can.”
In just a few short days 2007 will just be a memory. Still, here we are getting ready for the biggest shopping season of the year and I feel as if I’m still recovering from the 4th of July! I know the days got shorter, but do they suddenly have fewer hours as well?
I hope that by the time you read this, you will already be proclaiming what a great holiday season your e-commerce store had. I ignore the talking heads who say “consumer spending is down.” If you have a good business you’re doing well. Everyone is telling me their sales are up and by the looks of parking lots at the local malls, lots of traditional shoppers are out there spending money. Let me be the first to offer hearty congratulations for a holiday season well done (oh, yeah, don’t forget to thank your customers for shopping at your cyber-shop!).
2007 has been a great year for me. In May we rolled out this wonderful little monthly magazine called eBiz Insider. This was an ambitious undertaking and I am delighted to hear that so many of you have already put eBiz on your “must read” list. Month after month our subscriber base has increased and we’ve added several pages since the first issue. We’ve reached out to the most knowledgeable people we know in e-commerce. We have asked them to put pen to paper each month to bring you what I hope you agree is a fantastic resource for running your e-business.
Please help my staff and me to continue to make eBiz Insider YOUR magazine and tailor content to YOUR needs. Please take a moment to fill out our reader survey by clicking here. Your comments, suggestions and candid responses will ensure that we continue to deliver a magazine that you look forward to receiving each month. This survey is extremely important to the success of eBiz Insider so please take a moment to respond. We want to give you what you want in this magazine. So be sure to tell us!
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to thank the entire eBiz Insider staff for the excellent job they all have done. This was our first shot at a magazine and if I may say so, so far I think we’ve hit a home run. Thanks to you for reading eBiz and for supporting our advertisers who make this whole thing possible.
Happy New Year!
