Chapter 4. Targeting.
Initial Postings: Read and reflect on the assigned readings for the week. Then post what you thought was the most important concept(s), method(s), term(s), and/or any other thing that you felt was worthy of your understanding in each assigned textbook chapter.Your initial post should be based upon the assigned reading for the week, so the textbook should be a source listed in your reference section and cited within the body of the text. Other sources are not required but feel free to use them if they aid in your discussion.
Also, provide a graduate-level response to each of the following questions:
- This question gives you more market sizing practice (itâ€™s a skill youâ€™ll need). Using the logic from the chapter, try to estimate the possible market for the number of pairs of football pants a manufacturer could sell in your city. Hints:
- Go online and find the number of high schools in your cityâ€™s school districts. If you live in a large city, focus on only the largest school district.
- Assume that 90% of those high schools have both a varsity football team (with 40 players) and a junior varsity team (35).
- 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
