While most anticipate Internet revenues to be down or flat this year, investing in e-commerce and tweaking Web site are still on most merchant’s to-do lists for 2009.
This year, more than one-third (34 percent) of surveyed merchants anticipate that their Internet revenues will be down or flat in 2009 when compared to 2008. This, according to Freedman is a trend to monitor as in the past this channel has consistently delivered year-over-year growth. The balance of respondents continues to see growth but most project revenues up in just the one to 15 percent range.
