The harmonic connection of the traditional marketing tools and the new powerful technologies provided by the Internet could create a competitive advantage for every enterprise that invests on the new technologies. Moreover Internet Marketing has effects on the consumers. There is a basic difference between Internet marketing and conventional marketing where the consumer accepts passively the messages from the other media. The consumer can decide whether to follow or reject these links. The major drawback of the Internet marketing to the customer side is the invasion of privacy. Many web users have faced the major problem of unsolicited e-mail and they even change their email address in order to avoid the mail 5 References Hampton, B., Hampton, K. (1996).
