Abstract:-

Small Business Enterprises (SBE's) play a major role in the world economy, and their contribution to economic and employment growth is widely recognized. Based on the SBE role as an economic engine to drive global development, this research seeks to understand the practices and activities of these enterprises in terms of electronic marketing (Achieving marketing objectives and functions through the use of electronic communication technology), marketing performance and the effectiveness of industrial and trade SBE’s. In order to do this a comparative study is made between SBE’s in Egypt (developing) and the UK (developed).

...e-Marketing Project : Option 2 Marketing is the life blood of any organisation. Outline and describe the process of marketing with particular reference to services marketing and outline a marketing plan for a services organisation. Introduction There are many complex definitions and ideas of what marketing actually is, but a simple and concise one is: Marketing is “the commercial processes involved in promoting and selling and distributing a product or service” (Dictionary.com). In the context of services marketing, there is no “out of the box” product, which can be just purchased by a potential customer, so the marketing process is slightly different; however, the same rules apply. In this project I am going to address a general description of the marketing process, a brief look at how some services companies do their marketing, with particular focus on the software solutions division of the global multi-national Accenture, for whom I previously worked, so I will be talking largely from personal experience when referring to them and the online auction site eBay, of which I am an extremely regular user, buying on average 2 items per week from their site. Finally, I will outline a short marketing plan for a fictional software development services company. I will conclude just how important marketing is to any services organisation.

...technology devices with marketing strategies. As a result, terms such as online marketing, digital marketing, Internet marketing, electronic marketing, and even hypermedia marketing had been used for elaborating the new concept of marketing. However, online marketing, Internet marketing and E-marketing will be used frequently interchangeable and can often be considered synonymous (Gilmore et al., 2007). Although there is still no fixed nomenclature for this modern marketing strategy (Dholakia,2005), the term “E-marketing” would be used hereafter in this article. This article attempts to focus on how E-marketing is defined in research and discuss its adoptions and advantages for enterprises. It is imperative to distinguish between two commonly used and easily confused terms (E-business and E-commerce) before discussing E-marketing. According to Krishnamurthy (2006), E-business is an overarching term that describes how businesses run on the Internet or Web, and utilize Internet technologies to improve the productivity or organizational performance. On the other hand, E-commerce focuses entirely on the Internet or web to facilitate commercial transactions and even includes almost any transactional event in nature in real world, such as banking, stocks and bonds trading, auctions, retail shopping and so on. In addition, there are three popular types of E-commerce: business to business, business to customer, and customer to customer. Similarly, in terms of E-marketing, one......

...E-Marketing Consumers are increasingly using the web in their daily lives to search for products and services that will meet their needs, the entire marketing landscape is changing and there is a need for marketers and companies to implement this new usage in order to meet those needs and to better understand the changes in consumers’ behaviour (Heinonen, 2011). Tuten and Solomon (2013) explain the concept of marketing as being an activity for “creating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society” (p.14). E-marketing is simply described as being ‘marketing online’ (Chaffey and Smith, 2008: 13), which aims to engage and connect with customers whether it is through mobile phones or web sites. Its purpose is to establish a relationship with them. Social media now available to anyone with an internet connection (Lim, 2010) has been implemented by many companies to increase brand awareness and ease the communication between the customer and the business. The hospitality industry should embrace and make the most out of social media to gain those benefits and facilitate direct feedback from their customers (Lim, 2010). A research conducted by the Statistic Brain Institute shows just how indispensable it is for hoteliers to adopt social media, as they affirmed that 57% of all travel reservations are made on the internet (Statisticbrain.com, 2015). Social media Severals years before the internet revolutionized the way......

INTRODUCTION E-marketing can be considered to be equivalent to Internet marketing. Most in the industry would look at it this way. However, E-marketing is sometimes considered to have a broader scope since it refers to digital media such as web, e-mail and wireless media, but also includes management of digital customer data and electronic customer relationship management systems (E-CRM systems). Extending these channels to include electronic marketing or e-marketing activities requires proper planning and effective implementation.
