More Americans than ever will do their holiday shopping online this year, boosting revenues for e-commerce businesses and creating a greater demand for trained professionals to staff digital storefronts. Reuters reports shoppers will spend 7.5 percent more on e-commerce Web sites this year than in 2005. A recent Business-Programs.com article, "The E-Commerce Wrap: Online Holiday Shopping for 2006," suggests the consumer surge may create a job boom for Web professionals if they have the right education.

In December 2005, online companies reported a sizzling $624 million in sales. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the 2005 American Customer Satisfaction Index reported an 81 percent increase in online retail customer satisfaction. In the same report, CEO and president of online measuring firm, ForeSee Results, Larry Freed stated "online retailers are far out-performing traditional retailers ."
This high consumer confidence in e-commerce will push online marketing management to improve their platforms to appease customers. Business-Programs.com columnist AJ Fanter reports e-commerce firms can do this by seeking programmers, designers, developers, point of sale software, and customer support.

Statistics show the need for e-commerce marketing and management professionals to pay attention to enterprise staffing, Web performance, and customer support. Online sales were up 25 percent last year. If e-commerce trends continue, trained professionals will be in high demand.
