    • include direct responses to two different viewpoints made by the same or other classmates.

A comprehensive and detailed post is considered high quality post since it thoroughly answers and elaborates on the discussion questions. Make your discussion valuable. The higher the quality of your comments and postings, the higher the quality of the exchange will be. Be sure the content is productive and helpful, and represents mutual respect. Relate your answers to marketing principles and/or textbook chapters/marketing articles you read. Use terms that are familiar to most everyone in the field and spell out abbreviations and acronyms.
