I’m studying for my Communications class and need an explanation.
Warby Parker Business Proposal and Report
|Description||You need to help Warby Parker with a communication challenge to help them expand their eyeglasses business. Read the business scenario on pp. 387-388 and 410. You need to use the chapter method outlined on page 391 to write a proposal to increase business. Consumers are still reluctant to purchase eyeglasses on the internet and you are tasked with the challenge of creating a marketing proposal to overcome this reluctance. (Ignore the instructions on p. 410 to email your instructor and the team challenge- that is not part of this assignment)You will research Warby Parker’s financial statements and write a proposal to gain more customers through online sales. It may be helpful to look at competitors to see how they are marketing to online customers.|
