Books give a good reflection of the transformation which takes place: a digital transformation in our lives, private and business. Untill now I wrote 19 books, of which the most recent ones are also concerned about the impact of internet on customer behavior and the challenges of (web)shops. In 2001 in the Future of Marketing, I gave an overview of all developments, possibilities and changes of internet and web-shopping and concluded with practical hints and tricks. This book is also published in Spanish.
In 2009 the book Shopping 3.0 analysed the new shopping behavior based on internet. A shopping model was presented (the ORCA model) in which shoppers will first go to internet before they decide about the product and about the place where to buy: in the shop or on the net. A new customer behavior which will challenge the existing retail.
