A SWOTT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats, and Trends) analysis on the service. 500 word with references

Founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph, Netflix began offering daily DVD rentals to customers via the mail. Seeking to differentiate itself from its competition, Netflix created partnerships with companies selling a complementary good (i.e.) a DVD player (Chiu, Doroudi, Haussler, Khosla and Maltingly, 2007). Netflix therefore offered free rentals with every DVD player purchased. Presently, Netflix is the world’s largest online movie rental service with more than 20 million members (http://ir.netflix.com/). The company provides not only online movie rental service but subscription service streaming movies and unlimited TV episodes via the internet. The company also offers free in home delivery with no due dates, late fees or return charges. This winning strategy and user friendly service has made Netflix extremely successful over the years.

...Netflix is an American company that provides video rental and on demand video streaming by way of either the mail or streaming through the internet. The company was founded in 1997 in Silicon Valley California by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings. The idea for this DVD rental service came about when Reed Hastings was charged with a late fee when renting a movie and he questioned why he should have a time restriction on how long he is able to rent the movie. In April of 1998, the Netflix website was launched and they developed the concept of unlimited rentals with no shipping fees or late fees. In September of 2002, an article in The New York Times article stated that Netflix had around almost 670,000 subscribers. At the end of 2002, the company had one million subscribers and in 2006 they had close to 5.6 million subscribers. After these first important milestones, the company’s growth became exponential. In the fall of 2004, a consumer filed a class action law suit against Netflix in Frank Chavez v. Netflix, Inc. The lawsuit was due to claims of false advertising in which the company said they provided “unlimited rentals” within a “one day delivery.” Netflix denied making any mistakes within their advertising. A month later, Netflix decided to give anyone who was a member before January 15, 2005, a membership renewal with one free month included. The final settlement came to around 4 million dollars.

...NETFLIX Introduction F.R.I.E.N.D.S! Breaking Bad! And the latest House of Cards episodes! Some of the finest TV shows that I’ve adored and enjoyed for many years. Having one centralized place where signing up and paying 8 bucks or so a month for sitcoms and movies from all production houses is just fabulous! That’s Netflix for me. So how popular is Netflix? Netflix accounted for 34.2% of all downstream usage during primetime hours, up from 31.6% in the second half of 2013, according to reports. That means almost a third of North America was watching some TV series or movie on Netflix between 7-11pm! Business Model and Strategy Netflix is the world’s leading Internet television network with more than 48 million streaming members in more than 40 countries.

The so-called “Apple falling” moment of Hastings’s life came when he was forced to pay an exorbitant $40 in overdue fines for returning ‘Apollo 13’ past its due date. That’s where Netflix was born! Learning from his own experiences, Hastings introduced the monthly subscription concept in September 1999, and then dropped the single-rental model in early 2000.

...SWOTT Analysis Introduction The number one question that pops into people's minds when deciding on where they are going to open up a checking account is what is the difference between a credit union and bank. Many people are unaware of the true differences that stand between banks and credit unions and generally go with the bank logo they see the most due to convenience. The difference is simple, banks are for profit financial institutions, and credit unions are not-for-profit financial institutions. Majority of credit unions are able to offer lower rates on all products and services offered due to being member owned, not stockholder owned. Most customers receiving a service in a bank considers them just a number and not an actual customer because it based on making money not creating a lasting impression. "Arizona Federal was established on October 23, 1936 when a small group of City of Phoenix employees pooled their resources to form Phoenix City Employees Federal Credit Union. They started with fewer than 50 members and an average account balance of $5. The credit union has since expanded to manage over $1.3 billion in assets from 200,000 member accounts in 15 branch locations" ( Arizona Federal, 2010 ). |Strengths |Weaknesses | |Great Member Service |Employee Retention ...
