ne of them has to be multi-channel which means only firms which exists in the high street and online as well such as, TESCO.COM and dot com firms is overwhelmingly its activity are online for example AMAZON

1. Your task is to compare and contrast ( What similar and what difference )a well-known multi-channel firm and a well-known dot com firm (i.e. 1 firm of each type). Compare and contrast mean. So what you may avoid doing is half of you working on other company and half of you working on other company

2. YOU MUST compare and contrast as you are going. EXAMPLE, one of them has to be multi-channel which means only firms which exists in the high street and online as well such as, TESCO.COM and dot com firms is overwhelmingly its activity are online for example AMAZON. Lets say for example in China Taobao, in the UK ASOS as an example of dot com firms. People might say some dot com firm has some high street activity, if its most activity are online then we would see it as a dot com firms, Booking.Com, it has telephone approach

 

  1. the Executive Summary [400 words approx]. Executive Summary is written for somebody has not read the essay, say what is your key finding are. DO NOT say, I am going to introduce the firm or compare and contrast ( you only need to ( Key your findings )
  2. Introduce your work, explain your choice of firms and give key background on the firms [500 words]. What is exciting about them? Have you chosen them because they are a good contrast, know them they are in the same sector, in different sector, there is on an innovator, one struggling and one not struggling ( Nowadays every sector are struggling with CORONA SO YOU HAVE TO LOOK BEYOND WHAT IS GOING BYOND THIS MOMENT ( IT IS IMPORTANT TO MENTION CORONAVIRUS )
  3. Compare and contrast the key methods the firms you have looked at use to attract users. Categorise the methods into owned, paid and earned media (Stephen and Galak, 2012) [1000 words].

First, you definitely need to look at this paper (Stephen and Galak, 2012)

Secondly: organise them

5.1 Owned media and discuss your compare and contrast your 2 firms

5.2 Paid media compare and contrast the 2 firms

5.3 Owned media, you compare and contrast as you are going instead of having

2 seprate peaces of work

One thing to bear in mind is you are looking at 3 types of media and 2 types of firms so it is almost like 1,2,3 about 330 words each part and roughly 160 words in each firm so you cant look at every type of paid media, you might decide to look at social media advertising and paid search as an example , so you have to prioritise when you looking at that

  1. Using the model outlined by Anderson and Swaminathan (2011) compare and contrast how the two firms drive customer satisfaction, which in turn influences loyalty [1000 words].

again you have to ORGANISE them

6.1

6.2

6.3

  1. How useful did you find the Anderson and Swaminathan model? THAT IS CRITICAL EVULATION  What were its limitations? [400 words].
  2. What were the most important things you learnt from the assessment? [200 words]

Is it the truth of sector the most important thing ? Is it the dot com the most important thing ? Or multi-channel ? ITS completely up to you

  1. Briefly conclude your work, summarizing your findings and areas you think you could be looked at in more detail [350 words]. So you might find social media influencers are particularly intresting, YOU DON’T NEED to look at them in more details, but it is something can be done
  2. Reference list with full details provided. References for part A, they will be GENERALLY type of businesses because the background of the firm then you will be looking at academic and business refrences ( Refrences 1\3 Academic and 2\3 non academic

ASSUME THE READER KNOW THE TOPICS,YOU DO NOT NEED TO DEFINE OWNED MEDIA AND ETC, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DEFINE Anderson and Swaminathan MODEL

  • Start with the references and THE LECTURER METNIONED THAT WE HAVE TO READ THE FOLLOWING READING AND USE THEM AS FOLLOWS
