Applied Business Project 3

Assignment Overview

For Applied Business Project 3, you will create an informational (authority) website

providing investor-related information on the business you were previously researched for

ABP-1 and ABP-2 (refer to your D2L grade book for your “ABP Ticker”). Your website

should include a brief overview of the company and products, and additional information on

the corporation’s management, stock, and financial status that would be of interest to

investors. As discussed in class, your website should consider the principles of good website

design and the effective use of both textual and graphical information. (An example webpage

is included with this document as Appendix A.)

Business Objectives of Website Designs

As described by Thrive, a website design company, every website can be sorted into one of

four types, each with their own defining factors and sales structure. By knowing what kind

you want before making any design or marketing decisions, you can effectively attract the

audience you want and complement a well-defined marketing plan.

Authority Website

The authority website serves as an online presence for your business. This is the place

potential customers can go to get information about your company’s products and services,

as well as learning how to get in contact with someone about your services. People visiting

this type of website will have already have heard about your company and are looking for

more detailed information as part of their decision-making process. Your website serves as

an online placeholder, giving your business more legitimacy in the eyes of your customer.

Lead-generation Website

As its name suggests, this type of website site is focused on generating leads through its

online presence. SEO and targeted marketing strategies play a huge role in bringing in new

customers, although direct sales occur offline. These websites focus on prospective

customers who are ready to spend their money, but the need to be convinced that your

business is the perfect place to invest.

Design Reminder

Examples shown in this document should ONLY be used as a guideline for the graphical

style expected for the task. You should refer to the guidelines for information about the

content required in the figures and tables may differ from prior assignments.

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 3 of 18

Sales Website

This type of website is especially popular, as both leads and sales are all done completely

online. These are the sites that sell products or services through e-commerce, even if the

business utilizes online scheduling and payment, but provides the service in-person. In

general, if a site has a cart function, then it falls into the sales website category.

Utility Website

A utility website functions more like a tool than a standard website. These are the companies

whose business and website are one and the same, such as Airbnb and Facebook. They don’t

necessarily generate leads or sales, but are accessible to anyone that chooses to use them.

(Adapted from “There are 4 Types of Websites. Which One Do You Need?“ by Noah Britton,

https://thrive.design/there-are-4-types-of-websites-which-one-do-you-need/)

Getting Background Information on Company

For this project, you MUST use the company listed in your D2L grade

book item “ABP Ticker” or “ABP Company” (your ABP company).

Since you have already worked with this company, you should already be familiar with how

to locate information about your assigned company using Yahoo Finance, your company’s

official website, or other online sources.

Important Note

If you do not use the company listed in your D2L grade book item “ABP Company

Ticker” or “ABP Company” (the company you were assigned to use for Applied

Business Project 1) for your ABP-3 website, a major penalty will be deducted.

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 4 of 18

Requirement to Use an Approved Website Development Tool

Project Report Requirements (Submitted to D2L as a PDF file)

As shown in the reporttemplate available on D2L, yourABP-3 project report mustinclude the

following information about your website:

Report Task 1: Website hosting and Design Methodology

Task 1 Deliverables: For this task, you will document your web development environment:

Task 1.1 The website development tool used to develop your website (e.g., Blue

Griffon, Adobe DreamWeaver, or another approved website development tool).

Task 1.2 What computing platform you used to develop your website, (e.g a windows

laptop, a windows desktop computer, an apple laptop computer, an apple desktop

computer, etc.. If you used multiple platforms, please list the two you used the most.)

Task 1.3 A screenshot image of the ABP3 project folder on your computer showing

your index.html and all image files. The display option for the folder should use the

“details” view that includes the date, type, and size of each file, as shown below:

Report Task 2: Web-based Marketing Strategy

If your business has an online presence, understanding the difference between organic and

paid search, and how it can be applied to your business’ marketing plan, is critical.

Organic search results are the “natural” results found underneath the ads in the SERPs. They

are natural in the sense that the search engine algorithm analyzing all the pages across the

web felt these pages contained the most relevant information for your search.

The algorithm has decided that these websites will have the most useful information

according to what you are trying to discover, which is why they rank highly for the keywords

you typed in your query. The page is scanned for various things (like proper title tags, meta

description, URL, keywords, awesome content, etc) and the more relevant the information,

the higher the ranking.

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 10 of 18

Paid search results are basically ads paid for by businesses in order to rise above the organic

results in the fastest way possible. Marketers invest money into SEM (search engine marketing)

in order to boost their website to (ideally) the first page when someone types an inquiry using

specific keywords. For ads showing up on Google, marketers use AdWords to craft ads and bid

on placement opportunities in the auction.

(Adapted from “What’s the Difference Between Organic and Paid Search?” by Estelle Pigot,

https://www.acquisio.com/blog/agency/difference-between-organic-paid-search/ )

For this section, assume you are a marketing executive for your company, and you have been

asked to select a Google Adwords (words or phrases) to use as part of a marketing campaign

for one of the products or services mentioned on your company’s customer-facing website.

To help you understand Google Adwords, approaches you might use to find effective

adwords for your product, and the difference between organic and paid Google searches,

please refer to the following webpages:

? https://adwords.google.com/home/how-it-works/ (requires non-UA Google account)

? https://www.leadsquared.com/what-is-google-adwords/

? https://www.freshbooks.com/hub/marketing/how-does-google-adwords-work

Task 2 Deliverables: Provide the following information about the Adword you select:

Task 2.1 What are the product and adword (word or phrase) you selected?

Task 2.2 Write a 75 word discussion (range: 50-100 words) in your own words

about the adword selection criteria for your company or its products. In other words,

why do you think your terms will be effective in driving customer to your website

when they are entered?

Task 2.3 As a feasibility analysis, enter your adword (word or phrase) as a search

using Google. Then, write a 75 word (range: 50-100 words) in your own words

assessment of the effectiveness of your proposed adword. In other words, did the

products or services (either from your company or your company’s competitors)

returned by your search relate to your company or its products?

Task 2.4 Based on your proposed, include a screenshot of the top organic (nonsponsored,

non-paid) search result reported by Google, as shown below.

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 11 of 18

Report Task 3: Universal Design and Accessibility

As described by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs,

“Universal design” means the design of products, environments, programmes [sic] and

services to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for

adaptation or specialized design. “Universal design” shall not exclude assistive devices

for particular groups of persons with disabilities where this is needed.

https://www.un.org/development/desa/disabilities/convention-on-the-rights-ofpersons-with-disabilities/article-2-definitions.html

For this section, you will perform an accessibility check on your ABP-3 project website using

the AChecker website (https://achecker.ca/checker/index.php), which is a commercial

product that checks single HTML pages for conformance with accessibility standards to

ensure the content can be accessed by everyone.

To use the AChecker, you will upload the index.html file you developed for ABP-3 and analyze

your website for any accessibility problems based on the WCAG 2.0 (Level AA) guidelines.

To select this option, expand the “Options” section and select the WCAG 2.0 (Level AA) prior

to running your web accessibility check (Check It). (For additional information on the WCAG

2.0 standard, see: https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/ )

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 12 of 18

When AChecker scans your ABP-3 project website (i.e., index.html file), it will identify the

accessibility problems under the WCAG standard with your website in these categories:

? Known problems: These are problems that have been identified with certainty as

accessibility barriers under the WCAG standard.

? Likely problems: These are problems that have been identified as probable barriers

under the WCAG standard, but require a human to make a decision.

? Potential problems: These are problems that AChecker cannot identify, that require a

human decision to determine whether the issue would present a barrier.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You are NOT required modify your website developed for the ABP-3

assignment to correct for the problems reported by AChecker. Your task is only to report

the sections from the WCAG standards that were identified as potential issues.

However, if AChecker reports an error you have made designing your website, such as not

include an “alt” tag on an image, you may, of course, correct your website to eliminate the

design error and then re-run the AChecker scan for this section.

Task 3 Deliverables: Provide the following information about your accessibility check:

Task 3.1: Summary of WCAG accessibility requirements identified for review.

For this task, you will list the sections from WCAG standard reported by AChecker

where there are “Known Problems” and “Likely Problems” reported. For example,

in the figure shown above, you would list “3.1Readable: Make text content readable

and understandable”.

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 13 of 18

Task 3.2: Analysis of each major item reported by AChecker

For each WCAG sections listed in Task 3.1 with a “Known Problem” or “Likely

Problem” reported, with a Check code (i.e., “Check xxx”), you will list the following:

? The “check” code and its description,

? A brief description the recommended “repair”, and

? a statement about of how making the change will improve the accessibility of

your website.

For example, in the fragment shown above, “Check” problem report would be described as

shown below. (Note: To learn how correcting the “check” issue will improve your website’s

accessibility, click on the check issue hyperlinked description.)

Issue: Check 301: The contrast between the colour of text and its background is not sufficient

to meet WCAG2.0 Level AA.

Repair: Use a color contrast evaluator to determine if text and background colors provide a

contrast ratio of 4.5:1 for standard text, or 3:1 for larger text.

Improvement: Makes it easier for users to see and hear content including separating

foreground from background.

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 14 of 18

Section 4: Insert images of each major section of your Website

For this section, insert an image (screenshots or snips are acceptable) for each of the major

sections of your website from Blue Griffon, Adobe Dreamweaver, or equivalent web

development tool, into your ABP-3 project report, as follows:

Task 4.1: Header (Row 1)

Task 4.2: Corporate Overview and Governance (rows 2 - 5)

Task 4.3: Corporate Financials (rows 6 – 10)

Task 4.4: Corporate Investment Analysis (rows 11 – 15)

Task 4.5: Copyright Statement (row 16)

Section 5: Insert the HTML source code of your “index.html” website

For this section, simply cut-and-paste the entire html source code of your index.html file

into your ABP-3 project report (i.e., the report template). You only need to include the

HTML source code in your report. You do not need to include copies of any other

graphics files, such as your images.

Note that your website source code will be several pages long (5-6 pages or about 250

lines) and may be inconsistently formatted, which is why this item is located at the

end of your assignment report. If your source code is less than a page or thousands

of lines long (15-150 pages), you probably have selected the wrong source code or you

may have a design error in your website, such as pasting text directly from a word

processing software.

Be sure you include the entire HTML source code for your website, including the all of the

HTML code, that is, starting with the <!DOCTYPE> directive and including all of the HTML

code shown in both the ? head> and ? <body> sections.

?

?

The recommended approach to obtaining the HTML source code, display your webpage in a

browser, use the “View Source” option, “Select All”, and the cut and paste the HTML source

code into your report. Alternatively, you can copy your source code directly from Blue

Griffon or Dreamweaver directly using the “Code View” screen.

MIS 111 ABP-3 Spring 2021 Rev 1.1 Page 15 of 18

Using the ABP-3 Assignment Report Template Provided on D2L

required E-tegrity statement, section headers, and other required formatting. Be sure you

update the header with your name and UANetid.

Business Report Deliverable

Your report must include all elements of the report template, including the E-Tegrity

statement (shown below), as well as report header and title block, and the task section

headers shown in the report template file. If you elect not to use the template, you are still

responsible for all of the required elements shown in the template, and will lose credit for

missing items or it if your report is not professionally formatted.

Major Penalties

Not submitting your report as a PDF document. Even if we can open and grade your

assignment, if you submit your report in any other format (e.g., Word or Pages), a 10 point

penalty will be deducted from your score.

You will not receive any credit for the assignment, but you will be allowed to submit a report

for partial credit with a 20 point penalty.

Not including the E-Tegrity statement in your report, as shown the template file. Not

including an E-tegrity statement is a 20 point penalty.

Not using your assigned company, as shown in the “ABP Ticker” item in your MIS 111 grade

book on D2L. With the exception of graphs used from the “Alternate Figures” documents,

using another company for any aspect of this project is a 20 point penalty.

IMPORTANT NOTE
