The Web Marketing Today Story

Web Marketing Today was founded in 1995 by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson. He sold the business in 2012 to Confluence Publishers — which also owns Practical Ecommerce, for ecommerce merchants — in Grand Junction, Colo. See “Dr. Ralph Wilson on the Founding of Web Marketing Today” for an historical background.

The mission of Web Marketing Today is to publish down-to-earth articles, tutorials, webinars, and podcasts to help smaller, local businesses succeed online.
