Hanna played a major role in the development of the big businesses in American politics which led to a solid platform of Republican success. He helped build the career of William McKinley, first by starting as a governor and then a presidential candidate. One way he did this was by employing 1400 Republican campaign workers to send out letters to voters. He was the starting point for the political victory of McKinley in the 1896 Elections due to his high political aspirations and ideas.

At the last eight Olympic Games, every British medal-winning athlete have worn adidas product. 1.Adidas marketing strategies Every organization has key goals set in order to expand. For Adidas, the objective is to convince the fourteen-nineteen years old customers that they should buy their products.

Nike lures customers with marketing around their brand image which is attained by their distinctive logo know as the “ Nike Swoosh” and the now famous slogan “ Just Do It” which was chosen as one of the top 5 ad slogans of the 20th century. Whereas, Adidas marketing strategy isn’t as good as Nike’s, they are starting to go in the right direction. They are using more sports celebrities to sponsor their apparel.
