It involves a lot of advertising preparation, bookings, rehearsals, drafting and most of all how to think. Walker’s need to think in such a way that will relate to the public and make them switch on when either viewing the product or watching an advert, they achieved this task very well when they used the face of Gary Lineker, a famous football player who everyone can relate to, in order to represent the Walker’s brand. When the public see an advert with him in it they automatically switch on and associate him with Walkers. Also, when Gary Lineker presents Match Of The Day, on BBC One, the viewers will think of walkers crisps – This is great as Walkers don’t actually pay Gary for producing the show but they still get promotional awareness out of it. Every where Gary goes it is promoting the Walker’s brand image.

He wanted for the employees to concentrate in activities that could transmit advantages that the company could offer to their customers by working and growing together.

The amount of advertising of tennis has grown and it has allowed more consumers to take on the sport and sometimes have these consumers pursue much more than just playing through teaching. According to the vice president of Prince Sports, Linda Glassel, there has been “a dramatic change in the media to reach consumers.” Prince Sports always “stays ahead of the curve” so that they can beat every other company who also sells tennis racquets. One of the activities that Prince Sports uses as far as promotion goes is when they hold their Teaching Pro Program. “These sponsored teaching pros receive all the latest production information, demo racquets, and equipment from Prince.” Another activity that Prince Sports can utilize in the United States to promote tennis playing is through training camps or summer camps for anyone who is interested in the sport. With more and more people becoming interested in the sport, these camps would be beneficial as far as doing more than just piquing the interest of the players.

The store and its employees strive to bring out an enthusiasm that will appeal to a crowd of people old or young, male or female, and who love sports and stay active, or just love exercising.

Scenario MKT 113 - Chapter 9: Prince Sports, Inc. Southern New Hampshire University Prince already does a lot to encourage people to use their racquets; they run ads advocating their advanced technology, invest in a “Teaching Pro” program, and sponsor a lot of professional tennis players. However, Prince could work on promoting tennis overall and targeting junior and recreational players. Prince owes much of its success to its ads and product placement in stores, but has a few hiccups with simplification and globalization. In order to promote playing overall, Prince needs to segment their products not only on price and professional level of play, but on personalities and behavior. A great way to do this would be to run ads on in media
