One of the industries is quite limited in differentiation are the counter drugs OTC (over-the-counter), since many “houses” that sell the same products in a single category, so if were to ask the dispatcher a pharmacy or pharmacist class average for any analgesic, this we recommend three options (from seven to more) followed by a brief question (note that it is common practice to self-medicate and the trend has increased more as the current economic difficulties.) election will be based primarily on price and then by the recommendation of the pharmacist. Then look at the brand (reputation), presentation and any promotion or reward which comes with the product being these mechanisms of differentiation.
