4. To whom is it distributed?

5. What makes E-Tailer's Digest so unique?
 
We found very little that addressed the particular needs of the retailer -- not just marketing, but merchandising, administration, technology and other such issues. So, we strive to make this a very informative and useful publication.
Experience garnered with subscriptions on 125 newslists has given us a great insight as to what appears to work, and what doesn't. So we have taken  the best features of the more successful lists and added our own flair.

Get ready for a unique experience.  Don't be surprised if you get a note from your moderator  asking for your expertise on a particular subject. If you haven't completed a profile, please do so at our site http://www.etailersdigest.com/

Sometimes we have some unique events like our CyberCelebration that we had for our 100th issue (which was attended by over 2,000 people in one week).  And we poll our members to see what they would like to see in the digest (see 1998 survey).

6.  What are the topics discussed?
The E-Tailer's Digest topics include any, and all subjects that pertain to retailing. Such subjects might include, but of course not be limited to:

+ Customer Service & Interaction
+ Credit card merchant accounts
+ Retail software solutions
+ E-Commerce 
+ Security issues
+ Effective merchandising 
+ Trade Shows, Seminars & Conferences
+ Shipping and tax issues
+ Warehousing & Logistics

The E-Tailer's Digest will also include tips and pointers to articles and information of interest to E-Tailer's.  However, the most important element of any good list is it's members. We welcome your comments and your posts and please feel free to make suggestions that will improve the quality of the list.
