The author reflects on the significance of the internet in marketing, referring to the results of the 2008 Furniture Store Performance Report Survey which shows that some of furniture stores do not have a web page or does not attempt to sell over the internet. She states that the need to have a web site in marketing is necessary, because people rely most of their functions on the internet. The author suggests that as the price of gas increases, people tend to be more inclined in online shopping.
