Project Description

You are an E-Commerce consultant and have been contacted by the owner of an established high street jeweller. She currently has one shop in a major city in your region, where she sells a range of high price, exclusive watches and jewellery.

She is keen to explore the possibility of setting up an e-commerce website (provisionally called TOTW – Timepieces On The Web) in order to sell a variety of timepieces including watches and clocks online.

She intends, in the first instance, to sell only a limited number of timepieces online, which break down into the following categories:

? Exclusive watches;

? Children’s watches;

? Clocks for the home.

She already has agreements to act as an agent on behalf of the following watchmakers:

? Exclusive – Rolex, Omega, Tag and Breitling;

? Children – Cactus and Speedo;

? Clocks – Karlsson and London Clock Company.

The owner is keen to explore the potential for e-commerce to grow her business. In particular she wishes to gain an understanding of the following issues:

? How a SWOT analysis might help to gain a better insight into whether the proposed business model of selling timepieces online is appropriate as an e-commerce application.

? How to ensure that the TOTW e-commerce site is able to stand out from the competition faced from other online watch and clock retailers.

? The possible countermeasures that can be employed to address the range of online security threats that she has read much about.

? How to measure the benefits that can be delivered through the launch of an e-commerce site.

She has asked you to undertake a feasibility study in order to address the above points.


The jewellery shop owner has asked you to prepare the following outputs from your feasibility study:

1. A briefing note that explains how a SWOT analysis can be used to validate the business idea for the TOTW e-commerce site.

2. A short presentation of no more than 15 minutes which will address some of the key marketing issues in relation to how the new TOTW e-commerce site might be found by potential customers who are surfing the web. In particular the presentation should address search engine placement, domain name considerations and branding issues.

3. A document that provides guidance on some of the key aspects of a security policy.

4. An overview of the possible approaches that can be taken to measuring the benefits arising from the operation of the TOTW site.

5. A note that discusses some of the issues associated with the use of cookies by the TOTW e-commerce site.
