One example is 411StudentLoanConsolidation.com which, despite the verbose domain name, is represented by a sparsely laid out yet functional website. Users simply fill out the online form found on the homepage, click submit, and wait for a representative to call them if they qualified. Afterwards, the company begins to consolidate the loan along with any others acquired over time by the student. It is stated that up to 60% payment reduction in monthly payments can be obtained. Add to this the convenience of having one monthly bill for all payment duties.

It cost Johnson & Johnson upwards of $100 million to repair the damage but the long-term reward came in the restoration of the buying public’s confidence in the brand. Editorial
