eCommerce Veteran Rick Wilson Publishes Master Class in Profitable Online Selling

Miva, Inc., eCommerce software and service provider for mid-size and enterprise merchants, today announced from the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition (IRCE) the launch of CEO Rick Wilson’s book and companion podcast, Dragonproof Ecommerce: You Vs. Amazon – How To Protect Your Online Business, Products, And Customers.

In Dragonproof Ecommerce, Wilson draws on his 20 years of executive-level experience and unique vantage point in the world of eCommerce to explore the foundational elements of sustainable, profitable online selling. The Dragonproof Ecommerce book and podcast cuts through the hysteria surrounding the rise of the Amazon “dragon” and makes an argument for viewing the eCommerce giant as a catalyst for positive change.

“This isn’t a matter of ‘which of the strong shall survive?’ but more ‘who will gain strength by adapting to changing conditions?’” writes Wilson in Dragonproof Ecommerce, “…Those who embrace an economy in which Amazon exists, and springboard off the giant to deliver better solutions, will thrive.”
