 JD
Sports products:

JD sports
sell a wide range of sports product like trainers, football boots, shoes,
shirts and other sport accessories. The screen shot provided show JD sports
advertising what they sell on the home page this is smart because some people
don’t like to search for products they just like to press links at the home
page and people may not know what to search for when shopping.

Secondly JD
sports website works so that when you go over one of the tabs it brings up all
of the possible products that you can look at including shoes, trainers, sports
clothes, sports accessories and finally all of the brands that you can buy from
JD for example Adidas, Nike and Fred Perry.

Thirdly,
there website show the collection that you can buy and they are collections of
different products it is also categorised so that you can tell what brand they
are before you click on the name of the product for example Nike collections
would be under Nike same for Adidas etc.

Finally, on
the main page (home page) of JD sports website if you scroll down you will see
all of the featured brands that are sold in the store and if you scroll down
even more you will see the “best selling/most wanted” product, this is what is
trending at the moment and what they are making the most money off of.

ITunes Products:

The iTunes
store sells a range of products such as music, films and TV series in addition
to this it sells gift cards and they can all be used on apple products such as iMac
iPhone and iPod. This then extends the amount of people that can buy the
products on the iTunes store. ITunes has a lot of songs on it to be specific it
has 26 million songs and over 25 billion downloads and it is available in 119
countries.

Similarities and differences (M1)

Firstly the
websites are both similar as well as having their own differences here are some
of the similarities, firstly on the home page they both advertise their
products so that they can get as many people as possible to buy them if they
see a product they like on the home page. Secondly, they both have tabs that
lead to other pages on their website showing that it is organised so that the
products and the brands are easily found and easy to use. Finally both stores
sell gift cards for customers to buy so that if they give it to a friend they
can pay using the gift card as well as using cash

Here are
some of the differences between the two companies websites: Firstly JD sports
has the best selling products on the main page as well as trending at the
moments as most people like to fit in with the trend. Secondly, the apple
website tells the customers information about their products in a decent amount
of detail whereas the JD sports website doesn’t do that. One of the other
differences is that JD sports sells goods that customers can actually touch and
wear whereas ITunes sells products that they cannot touch as there products are
digital.

JD Sports – Delivery & tracking
online, getting the product to the customer:

When
ordering products online from JD sports it will ask you for your nearest store
location and then it will get the product from there to be delivered to you.
This makes it quicker for the customer to receive their package as well as it
being a good service making them want to order from the website again when they
want to buy a pair of shoes.  At the top
right of your screen you can select the closest store in addition to this when
you have ordered your product you have the ability to track it after you have
ordered it. You can also buy any product that you want and there are no limits.

ITunes – Delivery & tracking
online, getting the product to the customer:

For iTunes
as they are online products only there is no wait time for delivery and it near
enough instantly transfers to your account therefore you don’t have the ability
to track the song or movie that you ordered from the iTunes store. This is good
as if you had to wait for something that only takes a few minutes to transfer
then customers would complain and move to a different company. To download
music on iTunes you have to have an apple devise for example you have to have
an apple mac as it is manufactured by apple if you have an apple mac you will
have it available to purchase music on the computer and be able to transfer the
music using you iCloud account from your mac to your phone. In addition to this
you also have to meet the requirements that are provided when you press
download.

Similarities
and differences (M1)

difference between JD sports and ITunes when it comes to delivery and tracking
the products there are none the reason being for this is because ITunes

sports are actual products so they will take time to delivery and have the
ability to be tracked.

products by actual transportation e.g. lorry or van whereas ITunes delivers
there product manually. Secondly JD sports has a five working day delivery span
so that the customers know roughly when there product will arrive this is
different to ITunes because with ITunes you order it digitally and you receive the
product digitally.

One of the
similarities between JD sports and ITunes is the fact that they are both online
websites and they need a Wi-Fi connection to be able to have your products ordered
from there websites.

Social Media

JD Sports – Social Media

JD sports
uses the social media platforms to advertise the latest products that they are
selling for example on Instagram the could post a picture of a pair of new
shoes that have been just released and the caption could say the link to the
store page and it could say how much they are as well. The reason the do it is
because social media is because it is free advertisement and the target market
which is teens- adults use social media as it is very popular at the moment. JD
sports also advertise their products on twitter Facebook etc. just as they do
on Instagram the only difference is that they may have a different amount of
followers on that platform.

ITunes – Social Media:

ITunes use
the social media platform to advertise there latest films that they have
release that are eligible for purchase from customers. What they do is they
post a short clip of a film or a TV series to draw the customer in to see the
trailer then they will go to the iTunes store and watch the trailer and if they
like it they will then purchase it from the store. The reason they do this is
because now days technology is everything and social media is the main platform
that we use on the devises that we have so millions of people will see I
advertised whilst you are promoting your product for free. ITunes have their own
social media platform called apple ping and it is music based and it is
actually controlled by apple so you can only go on this social media if you
have an apple product. It is usable on both the iPhone and the iPod. They
closed this service in 2012 and opened up the social media platforms Facebook
twitter etc. they advertise their products on twitter and Facebook just as they
do on Instagram. Apple music connect is a new platform that allows music
creates to have the ability to be able to post their creations online for
people to see  they can post videos and
photos as well for people to see. Finally the interface is attractive and easy
to use.
