Competitive Advantage Analysis Marketing 495 Team D Jo-Jan Hardesty June 12, 2014 Jsdfk;af f the only person that knows me is u if u only knew The Muscle Pharn brand is positioned perfectly among competitors in order to win over its target market. There are specific attributes of Muscle Pharm products that make it stand out when compared to other similar products. In order to use every available advantage, Muscle Pharm marketers combine both rational and emotional attributes to appeal to the target market. In order to catch a buyer’s attention, Muscle Pharm marketing executives chose packaging that will cause a buyer’s attention to be drawn to it, without overwhelming him or her with clutter. The simplistic design and logo of Muscle Pharm printed on eye-catching neon green and black containers will surely be seen first among a shelf of plain products, even before the buyer is standing in front of the products.

For years, sporting companies have used this belief, by using athletes to sell there products to fans. A perfect example would be Under Amour’s latest commercial, entitled “Footsteps” using star athletes like Cam Newton and elite track and field runner Monica Hargrove. As the athletes train hard the camera zooms in on the athlete’s shoes promoting their signature Charge RC shoes. Companies like Gatorade, Nike, and Under Armour place their products on athletes to increase the sales of their merchandise.

This is particularly important because it was the main driver for Nike to start operating in the market of running shoes. The second but also equally important type of knowledge evident from the case also refers to tacit knowledge and is related to the search for the best shoe manufacturer. This is tacit knowledge because it is knowledge that he was able to acquire through experience and self will. As the theoretical definition states – this type of knowledge is context specific.
