  4. 4. 1 . B2B definition and its advantages <ul><li>On the Internet, B2B (business-to-business), also known as e-biz, is the exchange of products, services, or information between businesses rather than between businesses and consumers. Although early interest centered on the growth of retailing on the Internet, forecasts are that B2B revenue will far exceed business-to-consumers (B2C) revenue in the near future </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Internet-based business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce is conducted through industry-sponsored marketplaces and through private exchanges set up by large companies for their suppliers and customers. Of course, companies also sell to business customers through their own Web sites. Business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce is significantly different from business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>While B2C merchants sell on a first-come, first-served basis, most B2B commerce is done through negotiated contracts that allow the seller to anticipate and plan for how much the buyer will purchase. In some cases B2B is not so much a matter of generating revenue as it is a matter of making connections with business partners. [1] So, we would like to suggest creating an extranet to serve third parties in the business operation which will enable to securely share part of an organization's information or operations with suppliers, vendors, partners, customers or other businesses. </li></ul><ul><li>[1] http://ecommerce.hostip.info/pages/141/Business-Business-B2B-E-Commerce.html </li></ul>
  7. 7. II. SWOT analysis <ul><li>Strengths </li></ul><ul><li>Weaknesses </li></ul><ul><li>Opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>Threats </li></ul>
  8. 8. Strengths <ul><li>Good value proposition </li></ul><ul><li>Larger volume -> bigger supplier discount </li></ul><ul><li>Innovative aspect: sole source-> market leader </li></ul><ul><li>Convenient delivery from the manufacturer to businesses/ lower shipping costs </li></ul>
  9. 9. Weaknesses <ul><li>Lack of infrastructure & staff </li></ul><ul><li>Few or no customers </li></ul><ul><li>Few or no existing partners / relationships </li></ul><ul><li>No Brand Awareness / Preference / Reputation </li></ul><ul><li>Currently unaware of what marketing strategies will work </li></ul><ul><li>Delivery U.S. only </li></ul><ul><li>Upfront cost to contact wholesalers </li></ul>
  10. 10. Opportunities <ul><li>Develop the product assortment </li></ul><ul><li>Reach more businesses by enlarging the marketing/ hire salespeople </li></ul><ul><li>Virgin opportunities in new territories Fully automated secure internet-based trading </li></ul><ul><li>Trade worldwide </li></ul><ul><li>Market share can only increase </li></ul>
  11. 11. Threats <ul><li>Difficulty generating new business </li></ul><ul><li>Questionable market demand due to: </li></ul><ul><li>Seasonality </li></ul><ul><li>Economy </li></ul><ul><li>Possibility to grow too fast </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Analysis of the SWOT then allows the company directors to prioritise the issues and ensure that all are addressed satisfactorily. Questions you might ask yourself, and the conclusions you might come to are: </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Q: &quot;How can we ensure we capitalise on our strengths?&quot; - e.g. by using our good funding to launch an aggressive marketing campaign. </li></ul><ul><li>Q : &quot;How can we negate our weaknesses, or turn them to our advantages?&quot; - e.g. a perceived weakness might be smallness and having few staff. Turning this to your advantage, you can argue you have a low cost base </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Q: &quot;How do we remedy the weakness of not knowing what marketing strategies will work?&quot; - e.g. analyse successful competitors' marketing activities and use that as a starting point. Or try a broad range of activities, measure the effectiveness of each, and concentrate future efforts on the most successful activities. </li></ul><ul><li>http://b2b-marketing-blog.blogspot.com/2006/05/swot-analysis.html </li></ul>
  15. 15. B2B supply chain and partnership <ul><li>By using B2B EC, business can reengineer their supply chain and partnership. B2B will offer access to following types of information. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Product – price, sales history etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Customers – sales history and forecast. </li></ul><ul><li>Suppliers - Product line and lead-time, sales terms and conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>Product process – capacity, product plan. </li></ul><ul><li>Competitors – market share, product offerings. </li></ul><ul><li>Sales and marketing – promotions. </li></ul><ul><li>Supply chain process – quality, delivery time etc. </li></ul>
  17. 17. To successfully launch B2B operations we would like to offer to view several options: <ul><li>To partner with swimming pool supply stores (online and retail) </li></ul><ul><li>To partner with swimming pool builders </li></ul><ul><li>Pump manufacturers </li></ul><ul><li>International pool supplies </li></ul><ul><li>Pool wholesalers </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>-For example, Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies , the world pool supply leader. They offer the best selection of pool cleaners, pool chemicals, pool heaters, pool pumps and pool filters for above ground pool, in ground pool or spa. As the online product assortment shows, they do not have that product in stock and it would be a great idea to offer them to introduce it in the accessories section. Because they are the world’s largest with over 600 stores nationwide, manufacturers offer them many exclusive products. You won’t find these in any other store but theirs. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>- Doheny's Water Warehouse </li></ul><ul><li>This discount Pool Supplies store offers a huge range of pool supplies: winter products, pool chemicals, pool cleaners, pool equipment including heat pumps, etc. Besides, they trade online offering great deals on fast delivery. </li></ul><ul><li>- Pools.com </li></ul><ul><li>Pools.com has designed their site to accommodate the many international order requests received every year. Through the years, Pools.com has been able to fulfill product overseas at a very high rate of success. Mainly due to their time, energy and effort, international customers have come to expect expedited oversea services from Pools.com. It would be a great idea to partner with pool.com as they can be an intermediary for the international sales. </li></ul>
  20. 20. To partner with swimming pool builders: <ul><li>‘ California Pools’ company </li></ul><ul><li>Since 1952, California Pools has built more than 60,000 pools, making them one of the largest pool builders in the nation.
