Introduction

Running head: TOOLS, FOOD, AND CLOTHING FOR LESS Tools, Food, and Clothing for Less: How can they Make More? Dedra Adams American Intercontinental University September 11, 2011 Abstract The purpose of this essay was to suggest marketing solutions for three companies to increase their revenue and to retain or current market share.

A home run marketing strategy would be to offer another amenity of DM that is for father to be's. Here they could watch sports programs and socialize with other father-to-be's.
