The Internet offers companies the opportunity to market goods and services to more customers than
ever before. Reaching these customers and developing their loyalty by delivering quality, convenience,
price competitiveness, and the right products and services, begins with a solid emarketing plan.
Whether you are making the move to emarketing or are already and emarketer, you will need to
develop a plan, implement the plan, be accountable for actual results, and utilize metrics that help
propel you towards e-business success.
“Exporting My Products/Services” is the least important problem to small business
owners, essentially unchanged from when it first entered the survey in 1986. Even with
federal and state/local programs to promote exporting, small business owners show little
interest. Most small businesses are local. Their market is the town or community in which
their business is located and the immediate environs. Growth means expanding to the re-
gion, not going overseas. Plus, the economy has been strong. There is plenty of business, if
not locally, then somewhere in the United States.

A very important campaign is waged every working day in numerous businesses across England and Wales. It happens as directors, partners, proprietors, managers, credit controllers and their staff try to collect the money that is owed to them or their organisations. They almost always succeed in the end, but all too often the end is much too long coming. The culture of slow payment continues to be a problem and for some it can be a life or death problem, at least in the business sense.

Often destinations are artificially divided by
geographical and political barriers, which fail to take into consideration consumer preferences or
tourism industry functions. An example of that is the Alps shared by France, Austria, Switzerland,
Italy by often perceived and consumed as part of the same product by skiers. For the purpose of
this paper destinations are considered to be a defined geographical region which is understood by
its visitors as a unique entity, with a political and legislative framework for tourism marketing and
Even moderate-sized events take a lot of planning and organising. It’s wise to set up an organising
group right from the start and allocate areas of responsibility. Extra helpers can be brought in for
particular roles, such as stewarding, without having to attend all the planning meetings. This approach
cuts down on stress for particular individuals and ensures a more efficient use of everyone’s time and

There is no “silver bullet” or specific set number of factors that makes the worker an employee
or an independent contractor. Nor does any one factor stand alone in making the determination.
The IRS will look at the entire relationship to determine the extent of the right to direct and
control work done. If you are determined to be an independent contractor and therefore are self-
employed, you will need to pay a 15% self-employment tax which will cover your Social
Security and Medicare required payment.
Earlier research confirms this disparity in views and also the huge variation in the structures and
roles of PMOs. In the tougher economic conditions and increasingly competitive business
environment of today, organisations cannot afford to continue spending huge sums of money on
unsuccessful projects and programmes. Neither can they afford the cost of an ineffective PMO. So it
is important to evaluate and understand the value a PMO can and should deliver and what
constitutes the right mix of people and processes within a PMO to make that contribution.
Every event, regardless of size, needs careful planning in advance. The planning process should include,
in an appropriate way, everyone who will be assisting in the event delivery as well as any other
relevant agencies such as the local authority and police. Keeping track of all the steps in the process is
made much easier if you keep all the information together in a single Event Management Plan (see
suggested outline below). If you keep this electronically make sure you back it up frequently.
Small events do not need the same mass of documentation as large ones, and there...

Marketing plans may be long or short, and they will vary among organisations/regions. Whatever their length of character, they are valued as a tool for effective planning and assessment of productivity. The following are some general guidelines for developing a marketing plan. Your Marketing Plan can be more comprehensive than the example but it should include at least the following chapters.
As was mentioned previously, the times and business priorities are changing
at a rapid pace: no longer do organisations aspire to profit for shareholders
alone – they are increasingly answerable to other stakeholders. As a result of
regulatory and media pressure, in particular, best practice, transparency, open-ness and fair play are needed to be successful and sustainable in business.
While traditional concepts still exist and are referred to in this handbook, new
meanings are also developing.
