1) Competitive Advantage
1. In general, how do you decide what company’s products or services to buy? (put another way, how do you choose between competing products or sellers? Price? Quality? Features? Service? Convenience? Image? Some combination?
2. List three different products (i.e. “Shoes, Burritos, & Oil Changes”, or “Cars, Jeans, & Legal Services” or any other three products) and tell us what company’s product you purchase ( or where you shop for that product). Why do you buy that brand or give that company your business? (answer separately for each of the three products)
