20 New Rules. 20 Free Books. 20 Chances to Win: New Rule of Green Marketing Number 12.

Jacquie Ottman’s New Rule of Green Marketing Number 12:

 Consumers don’t necessarily need to own products; services can meet their needs, perhaps even better.Consumers historically met their needs by owning products, but concepts like Zipcar and ebooks are starting to prove that utility and service are what really matters.

Take textbooks, a product that students typically “own” for a semester or two. While us grownups are busy reading Steinbeck on our Kindles and Nooks, college students can rent textbooks from Cengage Learning, the textbook publisher. Alternatively, they can also download pdf chapters of textbooks, for a complete digital learning experience.
