Transcript of ASOS Business Environment

Business Environments ASOS ASOS PLC is an 'e-tailer', selling fashion and beauty products exclusively online, to a world-wide fashion conscious consumer. Business Environments ASOS is the second most visited fashion website in the world, with 1 million visits a month
ASOS has diversified to include an iPhone app, e-magazine, and online market place
ASOS has a customer base spanning 190 countries, with 62% of sales now coming from outside the UK The annual turnover in 2011/2012 was £287.5 million, a growth of 46% from the previous year Bargaining Power of Suppliers Bargaining Power of Consumers Threat of New Entrants Macro Environment ASOS PLC Micro Environment ASOS PLC Bibliography S.W.OT ASOS PLC ASOS PLC Internal Environment External Environment Micro Environment Macro Environment Internal and external factors affecting company performance and management decisions Political Economic Government stability Recession Social Shopping culture Technology Increasing access to online shopping Manufacturing Fast pace of change Changing demographic Education Environment Resources Tax Policies VAT Climate change Increasing environmentally responsible consumer Corporate social responsibilty Legal http://www.thetimes100.co.uk/downloads/asos/asos_13_full.pdf (Accessed 9th April 2013) Data protection laws International trade regulations Employment laws Strengths and weaknesses Threats and Opportunities Threat of Substitutes Michael Porter's Five Forces Exclusive use of ethically sound suppliers Fashion is a large industry with wide choice and very competitive prices Competitive Rivalry Online businesses have limited start-up costs Low running costs mean a low-risk business venture ASOS have their own product range ASOS Loyalty scheme Additional services Online purchasing slightly decreases consumer power Fashion retailers Fashion e-tailers non-fashion retailers and e-tailers Consumer selling to consumer Strength Weakness Opportunity Threats ASOS PLC's biggest strength lies in its unique selling point, As Seen On Screen.
