Global - E-Commerce - Revenue and Marketing Trends (Archived)

Synopsis

Online purchasing is still a small percentage of most people’s Internet usage, well behind e-mail, entertainment and information services. Of companies that sell online, most are not yet making a profit, but the situation is improving. Those that have become profitable have done so through an emphasis on customer service and effective marketing models, rather than fancy technologies and products. This report discusses the need for customer service, and other factors affecting the success of online trading. By 2003, the total size of e-commerce had already crossed the US$2 trillion barrier. This report was archived in 2003, with subsequent updates being included in the Global – E-Commerce – Overview and Analysis report.

Purchase with Confidence

"As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
