Book Abstract

MAIN IDEA

The Internet revolution, or “Webolution”, takes the shopping experience out of shops and into the home, or anywhere else the consumer may prefer to be. This transition will completely transform the commercial and personal lifestyle landscape, effectively reversing everything the industrial revolution required. In effect, e-commerce will morph into m-commerce (mobile commerce) as people move the bulk of their shopping online to enhance the quality of their lives.

On the Internet, you don’t need thousands of competing stores – just a few sites which make it onto the favorites list of the consumer’s browser. Therefore, the current debate over whether the best approach to e-commerce is “brick-and-mortar”, “pure clicks” or a hybrid “bricks-and-clicks” is largely irrelevant. Instead, retailers should be focused squarely on winning the attention of the Internet consumer, because there will only be one or two winners at most in each product category.

The true retail battle of the Webolution will be won or lost on the favorites lists of each consumer’s computer.

Main Idea

The Webolution is changing life, society and the economy for people around the world. Specifically:

People are adopting a Web lifestyle in increasing numbers.Consumers are getting used to the idea of being able to shop anywhere, anytime and anyway they choose.Economic power is rapidly being transferred to more than 1 billion Internet business owners who will drive all global production and consumption activities.

Supporting Ideas

Each of those three ideas are profound and far-reaching in impact. Taking each in turn:

People are adopting a Web lifestyle in increasing numbers. What is a Web lifestyle? It means the Internet will become an integral part of everything a person does – the way they learn, work, play, shop, pay, keep family records, get entertained, stay up to date with the news, etc.

The Web lifestyle is effectively a return to the family based structure of society which existed until the industrial era. The Web makes it feasible for people to be productive from their homes – eliminating the need to commute, to go to an office and so forth.

People living a Web lifestyle will live in digital homes complete with digital appliances. They will travel in automobiles which can access the Internet on the move. And, whenever they’re away from home, they’ll carry portable devices of all varieties with Internet access.

In short, for a Web lifestyle, the Internet will become the always available “dial tone” of life. And by 2010, half the people in North America will be living a Web lifestyle.
