o Service variability : the quality of services may vary greatly depending on who provides them and when, where, and how (ex: Marriott having better reputations than others) o Service perishability : services can’t be stored for later sale or use (missing appointments) o Service-profit chain : links service firm profits with employee and customer satisfaction o Internal marketing : service firm must orient and motivate its customer- contact employees and supporting service people to work as a team to provide customer satisfaction o Interactive marketing : service quality depends heavily on the quality of the buyer-seller interaction during the service encounter – if you don’t differentiate, you’re just another commodity o Brand equity : differential effect that knowing the brand name has on customer response to the product and its marketing o Building strong brands: brand positioning (establish a mission and vision for brand) brand name selection (easy to pronounce, remember, catchy, translatable) brand sponsorship (national brands, licensing, co-branding) brand development (line extension, brand extension, multi-brand, new brand) o Managing brands: a customers’ brand experience creates and shapes the reputation of a brand (advertisement AND experience)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
