MARKETING AND SALES
4.1.1 The Marketplace E-commerce
is the current buzzword. Cyberspace is where the growth
is occurring in terms of new sales. All over the world,
billions of dollars a year are spent by consumers shopping
on the Internet forcing retailers that once sold only
in stores or catalogues to take their products to cyberspace.A
report by Forester Research Inc., a U.S. based market
research firm estimated online sales by US consumers
alone which totaled US$2.4 billion in 1998 to double
this year and reach US$17 billion by 2001.
4.1.2 E-commerce is catching fast in Malaysian Industries.
These communities, or portals can then tap into the
business-to-business E-commerce market which one forecast
estimates it to reach US$400 billion worldwide by 2003.
4.1.3 The phenomenal growth of the Internet is likely
to be a threat to the advertising industries, unless
the industries also go on-line. A study conducted by
Forester Research Inc. recently concluded that over
the next five years, advertisers will continue to rely
on traditional medium but on-line media will begin to
take over an increasing share of the market. The Report
estimated that on-line advertising spending will skyrocket
ten times to US$33 billion worldwide by 2004 from US$3.3
billion now.The figure represents 8.1 per cent of projected
expenditure for traditional advertising and an annual
growth rate of 5 per cent. The increase in spending
is being driven by the surging number of Internet users
worldwide. As the on-line audience continues to grow
and E-commerce accelerates, more and more marketing
dollars will be drawn into cyberspace.
4.1.4 The Company intends to expand its presence into
the global market. The Internet is a unique medium that
offers advantages not available to more conventional
mediums. The Company intends to utilise the full potential
of this virtual medium as its new business focus to

publications if there is a demand.
(iii) E-commerce functions included in Internet directories
which will allow advertisers and other companies listed
in the directories to be electronic merchants. In this
instance, the Company will act as the "transaction
house" facilitating their on-line transactions
and for this service, the Company will charge the merchant
a small fee for each transaction. (iv) Registering domain
names, web-site designing and web-site hosting on the
Company's USA servers.
4.2 Target Markets. The Company intends to expand its
operations beyond Malaysia into Hong Kong, the Philippines,
Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan and Australia. The estimated
market size for directory advertising in this region
is about US$1.5 billion with US$100 million spent in
Singapore alone. Currently, more than 95 per cent of
this amount is spent on print media. With the advent
of new technology and the

more away from the traditional mediums into the Internet
and other electronic mediums within the next few years.
