ii. Assume that 90% of those high schools have both a varsity football team (with 40 players) and a junior varsity team (35).
iii. Assume also that each player gets 2 pairs of game pants (one in the dark school colors, and one in the light), and on average, 1.5 pairs of white pants for practice
c. Should a firm change its positioning depending on the market? What are the potential advantages and disadvantages of doing this?
d. Why do you think market segmentation is important and what impact could it have on a company? Does a successful company need to segment at all? Identify four different products that represent market segmentation based on demographic, geographic, psychological, and behavioral features and discuss how each product’s advertising reflects this segmentation.
