All the info here is requred; to completed a great paper Growing any type of business can be difficult in the face of managing your costs that seem to increase year after year. As a result, an acute focus is put on being as efficient as possible operationally and creating long-term loyal customers in the process. This can often times be even more challenging for an online retail business that sees hyper-competition and which customers have many alternatives if they are not satisfied with any respective online retailer in particular. In order to get a better look into this; you will be reading a case study, on page 352 - 353 of our ebook, that focuses on a company called Zappos®. They are known for having developed extreme customer loyalty and the streamlining of their operations has resulted in a very high level of efficiency in their business. Once you read the Real-World Case on this Company, and complete your additional outside research, address the following questions:

1. The great customer service at Zappos can be expensive with real costs exemplified by free sameday shipping and extensive employee training. Do you think the company can reduce costs in other areas of the operations to help offset these costs? If so, how? 2. By offshoring its customer call center, even if Zappos offers wages and perks much higher than the going rate, it would stand to save substantial amounts of money. Do you think Zappos should consider this? Why or why not? 3. In what other ways do you think Zappos can affordably enhance its customer service?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
