Please respond to classmate post: In 1960, Theodore Levitt, coined the word Marketing Myopia while he was a professor at Harvard in his article: “The Heart of the Article.” In his writing, Levitt explains that Myopia is the lack of understanding of what a business can do for its customers. Instead of focusing on the future, he explained that businesses spend a lot of money, time, and labor on their current products (Gallo, 2016). This is seen in several businesses today, where they get so caught up in the ”now” moment that they do not realize the big picture of consumers’ needs.
A prime example of marketing myopia is the rise and fall of the famous toy retailer, Toys R Us. Toys-R-us was the leader in toys, babies, and party needs for children. Adults loved the store, too. Unfortunately, the toy store was forced to file bankruptcy in the spring of 2018. A lot of rumors have circulated that Amazon was the demise of Toys-R-Us, however, they struggled before Amazon came into existence. Toys-R-Us was known for having large amounts of inventory, but oftentimes cut costs in labor expenses. This made it difficult for parents to shop in the store without a child. Parents wanted to be able to locate the product with ease, ask questions, and be shown how some products worked. This was hard to do when the staff was limited. Walmart became their biggest rival, Walmart only focused on what appropriate age groups wanted and parents weren’t overwhelmed when looking for the “it” toy. So, when the competition is tough, you have to compete and Toys-R-Us did not. It’s true, online shopping didn’t help matters, but the struggles of Toys “R” Us predate the boom in online shopping. Many of its wounds were self-inflicted (Isidore, 2018). Another company that suffered from myopia, was Movie Gallery. Movie Gallery was a favorite chain store video rental company that was convenient for picking a movie or video game to rent for a couple of nights. As a young child and early teenage years, I looked forward to going every Friday night and spending my weekends watching the latest movies available. As times changed, so did the consumers. Consumers finally had the option to have movies delivered to their homes from, which later became the famous streaming company we know as Netflix. At the time, they were looking at the “now” of business by making sure that they had the latest rentals out, yet they failed to compete with the way people got their movies.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
