    What a powerful move to acquire shop.com for Market America which has moved up 12 notches (from 66 to 54th in 2009) in the etailer rankings.

    This year they may move up to the top 40… but for 2011 i predict top 5 after you quadruple the amount of customers driven by shop.com.

    And the big move will be year ending Market America's 20th anniversary (1992-2012) First in rankings. They know what they are doing and so does everyone else. Everyone love to be associated with a winner.
