E Business Plan Outline

Develop a high-level outline of an e-business plan for the e-business you have selected. Provide introductory paragraphs in each subsection of your plan indicating the scope of the section.

My E Business Company info below
The Internet has opened the communication line to many third world Caribbean countries, allowing them to have access to information and products that they would normally not reach.

Caribbean Fashions is an Internet store that will allow fashion designers from various countries (especially third world countries) to be able to sell their products to people all over the world. Caribbean Fashion will target young designers between the age of 21 and older who design their own clothes line and want to expand their target audience.
Caribbean Fashion will advertise mainly in third world Caribbean countries looking for those talented young people who just do not have the resources to advertise.

Mission
The mission of Caribbean Fashions is to allow third world Caribbean designers to sell their talents across the world with minimum cost to them.

Keys to success
Accessible website that is entertaining and fun to navigate. Like a trip to stores around the Caribbean all in one spot.
1. Excellent vendor relationships that will facilitate quick shipment of orders no matter where in the world the seller or buyer is.
2. Effective strategy for advertisement to and for the designers.
3. Create a store image that will allow customers the opportunity to see what is attractive and trendy.

Company Summary
Caribbean Fashion is a store that brings fashions from all over the Caribbean in one spot. Caribbean Fashion is also offering small designers a chance to branch out into a bigger market that they would normally lack the resources to accomplish.

Caribbean Fashion is mostly interested in young designers who have the talent to create the fashions but not the resources to make them available for purchase. Caribbean Fashion will offer customers a free Internet store where they can advertise their products worldwide and open up their product line to stores and individual customers they would not be able to reach locally.
The key to their marketing strategy will be holding fashion competitions in various Caribbean countries and choosing the top three competitors to mentor. I will use small retail stores in their area to organize and coordinate the events and allow them to have full access in carrying the winning design in their stores.

Market Segmentation
Currently, certain fashions designed by individuals are sold locally in the stores. Those young designers attempt to sell their products to local tourists on the streets. No one is giving them a chance to showcase their talents within broader markets. The Internet is the best way to get these talents off the streets and into an online store where everyone will have access to them no matter where they are located.

Strategy and Implementation Strategy

Caribbean Fashion has a two track strategy

1. Caribbean Fashion will advertise in the local magazines,televisions stations and newspapers

2. Caribbean Fashion will team up with local stores to hold a minimum of 15 fashion competitions (one per country). The local stores that agree to assist will have first opportunity to carry the local design that wins. All other designs would only be available on our site for sale.

Competitive Edge

The competitive edge of Caribbean Fashion is its uniqueness as there is no other business that is offering third world Caribbean countries the opportunity to coexist under one umbrella.

Not only that, but Caribbean Fashion is a morally sensitive company offering small town designers a chance to expand and be recognized for the talented individuals they are.

Final competitive edge is the ability to offer competitive pricing on unique designs that are available nowhere else but at Caribbean Fashion.

Sales Forecast

Management Summary

For the time being Caribbean Fashion will have one Manager who is also the CEO and will outsource Talent Scouts to look for local designers in the various countries. This job will be outsourced to various individuals that live in that country. President (Owner) will visits each country only to assess the talents found and coordinate the fashion shows. All other leg work will be done by contracting scouts.
