Here's an eZine without a strategy. There is no theme. There is no long term vision. All we're doing is taking the obvious low hanging fruit on the site, doing a bit of slicing and dicing and then bundling all together to meet our obligation of putting out a circular per week. We're not even going to attempt to address the bigger picture. (When we see what we come up with, we'll write a retrospective and claim that there's a strategy behind it after all.)
Advice on exporting to Switzerland
Here's someone looking to export to Switzerland. A good post which shows that Ice Boutique is doing the groundwork.
I am planning to export high end consumer goods to Switzerland, I've a shipping company lined up, routes to market identified and sales channels defined. I'm still doing some final research but would love to hear from anyone who has entered the Swiss market, any constructive advice, the pitfalls, things to watch out for and any difficulties to be aware of. All input much appreciated!!

All dolled up
Here's another business looking for suggestions to promote their new internet business. It has a facility to get help from a professional stylist online! Great feature that could be exploited more.
