Currently, there are the mobile technologies like the 3G and PDA’s that have come to shape e-marketing and push the marketing arena to a higher level by incorporating electronic communications technology (Kalyanam 2009). Organisations need to take advantage of this marketing aspect and use the internet to distribute their products, enhancing good customer relations, advertising of products offered and to collect various responses from customers and other stakeholders through comments. An organization should incorporate into their marketing plan various e-marketing tools in order to expand their marketing horizons.

One of the major ethical issues relates to pricing strategies that organizations put in place in order to ensure the competitive advantage over the rest. This is a practice well done by big companies and more so multinationals against smaller companies venturing into the same market. Some of the strategies employed are price skimming, bid rigging, and price fixing among others. The pricing strategies woo consumers more than others since the baseline of selling and buying are the price tag of a service or a commodity.
