The paper argues that for FYC to significantly expand its market potential, it must aggressively pursue an e-commerce strategy that moves beyond merely posting product brochures or images online, and instead seeks to create more of a lasting dialogue or conversation with customers as a result. The paper outlines the marketing strategy and marketing mix to support the launch and continual differentiation of the FYC website, the visibility strategy and implementation strategy. The paper emphasizes that it is not enough anymore to just create a basic e-commerce website that has the fundamental ordering applications on it. This paper contains an appendix with a table.

From the Paper:

"The vast majorities of FYC's competitors concentrate on merely putting their product literature online and fail to provide insights into how their unique selling propositions make them uniquely qualified to be trusted advisors when it comes to furniture selection and buying. Yet FYC can distance itself from these competitors by concentrating more on working with its own suppliers to offer furniture customization, or build-to-order strategies for their customers (Krishnapillai, Zeid, 2006). This will make FYC be significantly different and distanced from its many competitors as a result."
