Building an e-Commerce Brand at Wayfair
Wayfair, Inc. was made up of five home goods, furniture, and d cor e-commerce brands. Wayfair.com, the main brand, which was responsible for the majority of sales, targeted the mass middle home goods market. AllModern, DwellStudio, Joss & Main, and Birch Lane were niche sites focused on more specialized curated design esthetics. Determining the 2014 advertising budget for Wayfair.com is the big question in the case. Two ad budget decisions need to be made. The first decision is in regard to the amount of money to be allocated for advertising in 2014. The second decision concerns how to allocate this budget. How much should go to TV ads? How should the remainder be allocated within the digital media options?
