An Open Letter to Fast Company

July 23

Dear Fast Company,

The Ecommerce Economic Defense Initiative applauds your sponsorship of the 2012 Build-A-Business Competition.  We believe in the power of ecommerce as a critical tool in the global battle to bolster the struggling consumer economy – a belief that we apparently share with you.  That belief not only led to the founding of the EEDI, but to the creation of our ecommerce grant competition.

... and that’s why we’re writing.

Bad Navigation is an Abomination!

More Ecommerce Propaganda From the EEDI

July 11

Strictly speaking, today's propaganda poster has more to do with web design in general than ecommerce specifically, but some advice is simply universal.  No matter what sort of website you have, you'll want to keep your navigation clean and easy to understand... and if you happen to win our Ecommerce Grant Contest, you can use part of your prize to remove the snarls from your site map!  Visit our propaganda page to download our other posters or you can sign up right now to be on your way to a chance at over $25,000 in ecommerce service prizes!
