Since the birth of the Internet, two-way communication via Web-based exchanges has become
more and more popular in electronic transaction, publication, broadcasting, and other service
applications (Li, Tan & Xie, 2002), so the Web is an increasingly important resource in numerous
aspects of life (AbuAli & Abu-Addose, 2011). Since organizations have been realizing the possible
implications of the Internet in their work (Aladwani & Palvia, 2002), Internet has become a key
strategic weapon, which is particularly important considering today's competitive business
environment (Davidavičienė & Tolvaišas, 2011). Using Internet as a Marketing tool is considerably
less expensive than using other media, so web-based Marketing allows organizations to equally
compete with each other, regardless the differences that may exist (Klassen, 2002). Considering
the mentioned aspects, as well as the rapid pace development of digital and social technologies,
research on this topic is fundamental nowadays. In fact, one of the research priorities identified
by MSI for 2014-2016 is the evaluation of how digital, social and mobile technologies can be used
and managed in order to obtain marketing advantages.
