I often receive emails from people asking me where do I get my sources, statistics, news and information for my editorials in my newsletters. Some of these resources offer superb information as well as links to other pertinent sites — while I use them as editor these sites can be of tremendous help to any Internet marketer. So without further ado, here’s a partial list of the many sources and resources that I often visit:

http://ecominfocenter.com/infosources/websites/statistics.html

The eCommerce Information Center is a site offering ecommerce statistics, analysis and market research. For example, do you need to get a handle on how many Internet users there are? How many websites are out there? The amount of online business activity? This site provides the answers.

The eComm Resource Center offers numerous resources — it provides a basic look at how to plan, build, manage and promote an ecommerce web site.

Dr. Ralph Wilson provides an incredible information-packed resource site on ecommerce and web marketing. Among others, his eCommerce Research Room is a must-visit. His ecommerce discussion forums are also quite helpful.

http://www.useit.com/

Jakob Nielsen is the web’s greatest pundit on web usability — an important component of successful web businesses. It’s a plain site (he practices what he preaches) but packed with very “usable” tips and information.

The Center for Research in Electronic Commerce is packed with publications, news, links and resources. It was put together by the people at the University of Texas at Austin — a leading research institution in electronic commerce.

It’s a simple site but the Electronic Commerce Page is loaded with neat links to ecommerce-oriented sites, resources and information. A must-bookmark!

TechWeb News (at http://www.techweb.com) is probably the most insightful and comprehensive Internet news site. It’s ebusiness section, called “Planet IT,” is packed with specific information, articles and statistics on ebusiness.

http://www.ecommerceadvisor.com/

Joan Sotkin’s The eCommerce Advisor ezine is always a super-read. Joan is a fabulous editor — her publication gives ebusiness webmasters the many do’s and dont’s of online business and ecommerce.

http://www.clickz.com

I love this site. An online magazine, ClickZ provides an insightful inside — and oftentimes unabashed — look at web advertising, electronic media and marketing. They also offer discussion forums, tutorials and more.
