The lackluster economy, combined with the rise of blogs, the declining allegiance to brands and increased retail competition online, have combined to make it more difficult for e-marketers to craft messages that can capture shoppers, says Jeff Wisot, vice president, marketing, for

Wisot will talk about how e-marketers can overcome those challenges at the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition 2010 in a session entitled The issues that e-marketers struggle with.

“Consumers now want to be in charge of how, where and when they receive messages, forcing online retailers to adapt to what consumers want, rather than the other way around,” Wisot says. “At the same time, online retailers now have less control over their messages, as many consumers rely on word-of-mouth from family and friends when making purchasing decisions, and on blogs.”

That means e-marketers must run highly adoptable campaigns capable of being refined at a moment’s notice, he says.
