sales associate at local sporting goods store

Daily blog: Small, local sporting goods stores face stiff competition from large, national sporting goods chains and department stores. The competition makes it necessary to offer unique products and services. What could a sales associate at a local sporting goods store do to maintain positive relationships with the store's customers?

Small local sporting goods stores usually don't have much inventory and that's why we travel to bigger, national stores. Dick's Sporting Goods is the store that most athletes get their equipment and athletic clothing from but it's usually very expensive. One thing that a sales associate could do is make friends with all the customers and show good customer service so people will keep going back. When you go into a large corporation like Dick's, they usually don't have the best customer service. The smaller stores could also keep a larger inventory with cheaper prices so they get more business.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

steven tyler

Daily blog: Read the article attached to this post. What do you think about a hard rock singer opening in Nashville? Nashville is considered to be the center of country music. Do you think the Nashville Film Festival is focused on country music or all genres? Do you think Tyler would have been selected if he was still only doing rock? Watch the movie trailer if time permits  

I absolutely love Steven Tyler and I think it is awesome that he is opening in nashville. His new album has changed in genre from rock to country but i think it is amazing. I think that the Nashville film festival is focused on country music but steven tyler is not known for his country music. This is a way to show that he is testing out the water in a new genre and it can give him and the festival more publicity. It is focusing on a larger target market now since there is a singer with a different tone. I do not think he would have been selected if he was still doing only rock.
