I would definitely choose option number three. Reebok did a great job with the Iverson campaign, and I believe they need to expand it to other sports in order to get more customers.

I think that their next step should be selecting two spokespeople, a well-known soccer player and a well-known track runner. It is very important that these two spokespeople are known around the globe as world-class, successful athletes and are considered role models.

I believe that taking this direction with their campaign will produce the best result, helping them maintain their status as a giant athletic equipment provider and obtaining new consumers around the world. The reason why I wouldn’t select option number one is because imitating Nike’s success will do nothing for Reebok. They’ve already done a good job beginning that with their Iverson campaign, so imitating Nike’s exact ideas isn’t the way to eventually surpass them. They’ve kept up with Nike for the past decade by carrying out their own exclusive campaign, and not imitating Nike, so why would they begin to mimic them now? Option number two would be my second choice, but I still consider option number three as the best choice. My basis behind...
