company making the right moves at the right times. They are using retail expansion
as well as the Internet to grow their business. Using both methods of expansion
will allow Hollywood Productions Inc. to reach the most customers. This is the
correct way to do it. The Internet is growing at an rapid rate. It appears that
future businesses will only be successful if they use the Internet. However,
depending too much on the Internet puts too many eggs in one basket. Retail
expansion gives a company the personal exposure it needs to begin with so it's
customers can then come to their website and see their entire catalogue.
