This title carefully balances theory with practice, thereby easing the transition from knowledge to application in the world of e-commerce. E-commerce: The Essential Guide is written at an accessible level for students who are new to digital media, while also addressing the intermediate skills that are required for standard industry practice.

Moreover, they will be equipped to distinguish between online consumer behaviour and regular consumer behaviour in brick-and-mortar stores. Added to this, the title will explore how various factors can be used to the advantage of an online business – from calculating appropriate profit margins and financial projections, to designing virtual stores, launching social media platforms, and providing online support to consumers.
