Rob Boyle, Digital Marketing Manager, qualtexuk.com As a 10 year veteran of B2B ecommerce with multiple online stores, this book made me chuckle with the honesty and the real-life advice.
In fact, some of (what I thought were) my own personal trade secrets are now listed in the book for everyone to know. It took me years to figure those out. Please don't let my competitors read it.
This book is a godsend as it covers all ends of the process without any fluff. If you don't have a successful B2B online presence, you MUST have Chloe's book.
Jon Butt, Managing Director, FireProtectionOnline.co.uk Those that are in B2B businesses know that B2B eCommerce truly is different than B2C eCommerce. In B2B, we have complex customers, complex products, and we have complex systems. This book does a fantastic job of detailing the reasons and tactics behind building and operating a B2B eCommerce site. I was incredibly impressed by the depth and case studies.
