Important Stakeholders Fogdog Deal – 1999 Nike signed a deal with Fogdog to only allow them to sell their entire Nike product line for 6 months. Top Accounts including The Athletes Foot. UPS for pick, pack, and ship.
Goals and Strategies Nike wanted to go online, but very cautiously as to not ruin the company. They took baby steps and eventually sold its products online. Nike had a problem with the pricing model online. They did not want to offer different prices online for a few reasons. If Nike offered lower prices online, companies that buy shoes from Nike would now compete with Nike. They decided to offer the same prices online as they would of offline.
Goals and Strategies cont. Nike did not want to allow everyone to sell their shoes online, and risk possibly ruining the Nike brand. The deal with FogDog allowed them to sell their shoes online, and no one else.
E-Commerce opportunities Nike could now benefit selling its products at retail prices and not only wholesale prices. Higher Profits. Nike could directly collect information about its end customers, in turn increasing the effectiveness of its marketing.
Prospective analysis The Case perspective is Creating and Capturing value in the supply chain.
Why? Nike was already established and well branded in the offline world. They faced the Internet as a new channel. They needed to figure out how to make this new channel work with their existing offline channel, and offer the same experience online as offline.
Why cont. Pricing is a big problem that Nike was going through, they offered their products for sale online. This made Nike a competitor for retailers so Nike sold their shoes online for retail prices as not to cause too much competition. There has to be a change in their supply chain. They now sold to customers directly, making it possible to collect information about the customer and their habits. This helped Nike find out what the customer wanted, allowing them to be more efficient in manufacturing different types of shoes to the customer.
DSIR DSIR does work for this company. – If you go and buy a Nike shoe, you in turn become an advertiser for Nike. – As more people buy Nike shoes, more people will want Nike shoes. – As we see the network grow, people see a switching cost of not following the norm. – There is not really a switching cost as in you have to learn how to use a new shoe, but maybe you have to settle with a shoe that people are going to make fun of you wearing.
Competitive risks Had little experience selling directly to customers The competition was going online just as fast or faster than Nike, offering some product lines. The competition was more willing to have retailers sell their products online.
Competition Adidas Converse Reebok New Balance
Missed opportunities This is a successful business in the offline world. They cautiously went online which was a good thing for them, as to not cause other retailers to see them as a competition.They offered the FogDog full and sole access to sell online, which may have not been the best idea, because then the retailers got mad. Nike should of offered a select few retailers and not go into a contract that would not allow Nike to sell to other online retailers.
