Question Description

I’m studying for my Marketing class and need an explanation.

Overview

Throughout this course, you will be searching and analyzing a company web site

for its application of electronic marketing principles.

• You need to select a B2C website that you will follow throughout the

course. You have to get the approval from your instructor before you start

your project.

• The web site is to be a brand site, not a site for a mega corporation with

many different brands. For example: Nestle.com is a corporate website,

while Nescafe.com, Dolce-gusto.us, Nespresso.com, Coffeemate.com are

all Brands website.

• The website must have a free newsletter or email communications. You

should sign up for free to get newsletter or email communications from the

website you have selected. This will help you to understand the various

elements of their online strategies and give some insights into how their

multichannel marketing is carried out.

• Make contact with the chosen brand web sites by asking for information, or

even purchase a product if you wish

Register at the B2C web site you have selected. Indicate in your report what

data was captured on the registration form.

• If the company has retail outlets nearby, you also should consider a visit to

the retail site. This will allow you to look for ways in which the firm is

integrating marketing activities on and off the Internet

You should put together an annual e-marketing plan to help set the marketing in

general on the right course to make any company's business goals a reality. It is a

high-level plan that guides the direction of the team's campaigns, goals, and

growth.

Without an e-marketing plan, things can get messy -- and it will become nearly

impossible to plan the budget that is needed for the projects, hiring, and

outsourcing required over the course of a year if you don't have a plan.
