Writing a casestudy

As part of my course I am required to choose a business to conduct a casestudy on. A minimum 1000 words on a random business or a company similar to one chosen for relating to my digital marketing plan.

A case study, in a business context is a report of an organization’s implementation of something, such as a practice, a product, a system or a service.
