    Introduction

    The Internet is expected to play many important roles within a traditional marketing effort and it may also come to serve as the foundation of a firm's marketing effort. Marketing is about anticipating and satisfying buyers' needs. One purpose of this subject is to acquaint students with the special behavioural considerations for buyers when the Internet plays a role in the firm' s marketing effort. The second purpose is to evaluate how the special characteristics of the electronic environment alter traditional marketing tactics (products/services, pricing, promotion and distribution) and dictate a need to create new forms of product and service delivery.
