From the Paper:

"There is a perception that the more densely populated an area becomes the higher the competition with the company struggling for market participation. This is an incorrect assumption because most of the nutrition companies are operating online mainly suppliers to manufacturers or to the public. This results in less advertising and an environment where the competitive spirit is unvoiced. So it can be assumed that the competition is actually low. What determines the success of a vitamin company online has to do with the Internet presence not just as a web site but also to the customer via email or other sites as secured banners. Because of this, many other companies (like Waseta should ) are looking into more flexible packages or are partnering with better IT providers in order to have greater Internet presence."
