In the digital era of today, human involvement in either of these activities has been reduced to next to nil. All kinds of products and services are very easily sold and marketed online. Right from perishable goods to elaborate services, everything can be ordered, delivered, searched and tested remotely. This phenomenon was bound to shake things up in the market and pioneers like Amazon was successful in disrupting that particular market.
