the solution isn't really specific to physical products.

it can work just as well if your "product" is consulting services.

the key is focusing on quality, rather than profit.

get the quality good enough and the profit will probably follow. 

without the quality, profit doesn't matter - and the company deserves to
die. they're no use to anyone but themselves, just another fat corporate
leech sucking the life out of the community.
