A business strategy is a set of plans for achieving superior long-term returns on the capital invested in an organisation. Your e-commerce business must be able to offer economic value. Economic value is created anytime customers are willing to pay more for a product or service than it costs to produce/ offer.

There may be several sources of economic value that defines your online business strategy. Successful e-commerce business strategies use the online world (Internet and mobile platform) to leverage and strengthen economic value. There are five basic business strategies

– Table 5.9 (pg. 360) in your textbook illustrates those strategies.

Select a business strategy that you think is relevant to your proposed online business and assigned business category.

When you consider your business strategy, you have to discuss the nature of competition in your market, types of products and services that you may be providing, unique value that you may be offering, distinguishing processes that you may be following, and level of personalisation and customisation that you may be able to offer. These ideas must be relevant to your online business, and also subsequently reflected in the rest of the report.

Report Section 2 – E-commerce Business Model (approx. 1000 words)

Simply put, a business model is a plan for making money. The textbook explains eight components of a business model. Discuss the following four components of the e-commerce business model for your online business:

  • Value Proposition – how does your online business fulfil customer needs?
  • Revenue Model – how does your online business earn revenue and have a positive return on investment?

  • Organisational Development – what types of organisational structures within your business are necessary to carry out your e-commerce business plan?

Click stream behaviour refers to the transaction log that consumers establish as they browse the Internet for shopping and buying: search for a product or service > interact in social media > view offers in different websites > land on your website > view specific pages on your website > finally purchase what you have offered online.

 

How can you as a marketer use such data of clickstream behaviour for your business?
