We can all learn a lot from what those around us are doing. One thing I tell the clients I work with is if you can’t lead, then follow a leader. Often (not always) you can learn a few tricks by looking at some of the “big guys”.
The list of top 100 retail websites for 2009 was released and it includes a variety of sites across numerous industries. I’ve listed the top 100 and the industries they are each in so you have a resource you can come back to and look at from time to time. There should be something in here for just about everybody.
Here’s the list of the top 100 in order of industry from A-Z.
Apparel & Accessories

Computers / Electronics
Flowers / Gifts / Jewelry

So the next time you are stuck trying to figure out how to approach your website marketing strategy take a look at each of these. This list should stir your ideas and get you moving in the right direction … even if that means asking the right questions or getting the right help in place to implement.
Remember though, plan carefully, choose your course wisely, and always test before saying “it works”. What is good for one industry may not work in another.
To your success.
