If you’re looking for Smart Watch experts…we’re the one!
The Group of 3 is currently looking at expanding their business online.
Research has shown many more customers are preferring to make purchases from the comfort of their own home without having to visit a brick and mortar store. The Group of 3 would like to take advantage of this finding and host an e-commerce website to sell their Smart Watches. A few stores will remain open but the goal is to drive sales directly from the site thus reducing operating costs of managing so many stores.
This website is being built completely new as there is currently no website for the company. The structure of the site will have to be very similar to the experience of the customer going to the “real store” ensuring customers can find what they want and get assistance and serviced easily.
- Increase market share in the Smart Watch market, be the dominant retailer
- Reduce operating costs and reduce number of brick & mortar stores
- Drive and increase sales to the online platform
- Create smart watch awareness through branding and great customer service
- Appeal and specialize to the “serious” smart watch segment
- Communicate information on technology trends, product lines
- Be a platform for customer service, answering FAQs, customers & product support
- Use to strengthen brand in the online community
- Sharing of product experience and Promos via Social Media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
- Provide an alternative platform to buy the products versus going to the store
The following were listed as competitors by the company
