How The Product Will Be Marketed

Extracts from this document...


Jack Adams 16/4/01 How The Product Will Be Marketed The trainers will have to be repositioned in my adverts to appeal more to elderly people, which will mean finding the areas of current trainer adverts that are targeted at younger people and replace them with alternatives which are more aimed at older people. This should be done but I must make sure that the product is still represented how I want it at the end of my advert.

The idea of this advert is linked to the TV one, of an old man wearing Donaldsons trainers being victorious in a race ahead of many younger, fitter-looking competitors connoting success. ...read more.
