In paragraph two the writers say about skill the foot-in-the-door technique, “once someone has agreed to the small action, he or she is more likely to agree to a larger request” (504). By this statement, the writers suggest the small deals guide to big deals. Maybe the writers thought that first technique works perfectly in real life but I don’t think they were right or got the point.

It is very expensive and time consuming opening new locations and Kudler does not have the financial means to do so just yet. What Kudler Fine Foods needs to focus their attention on is other competitor in the market.

Kudler will also advertise to the Asian community by having advertisements in their language.

Value/cost evaluation helps the marketing research department determine which research projects to conduct, which research designs to use, and whether to gather more information after the initial results are in.
