In teams of two, you are to produce a website incorporating a blog (using your own choice of website and blog provider), which will promote a food business in Essex. This could be restaurants, food wholesalers, market gardeners, cooking products etc. You will need to choose a specific business model: Consumer to Consumer, Business to Business, Business to Consumer, Government to Consumer, and develop your website and blog accordingly. You need to think about how the front end of the blog /website plays an important part in pulling in clients/users, how it engages with them, and ultimately how to keep them returning and buying from your site!
You are to undertake a five to ten minute presentation of your web and blog site and explain rational behind their development in Week 12. This part of the brief will carry 40% of the final mark and is equivalent to 1200 words.
When designing your website & blog you should think about the following criteria:
The aesthetic appeal of the website and blog, use of colour/font/logo and layout.
How you have used the blog to sell/offer lifestyle interest/focus on personalization or providing a unique user experience, and how it will channel potential buyers to the website.
How you have used search engine optimization
How secure your site is and how to protect it against fraud
Ease of use
That you have considered customer behavior and how advertising and marketing affects it
How well you and your work are presented
How you would launch your site
Have you complied with regulations and thought about the ethical implications of your site
You are also to write a report, which will explain how you have developed your blog site, and how you have used appropriate models to underpin your design and e-business strategy bearing in mind the above criteria. This should be well referenced and contain screen dumps of your work in progress and reference to existing blog sites which have influenced your decisions.
This part of the brief will carry 60% of the final mark and should be 1800 words in length.
