Cowboys were called cowboys for a reason. You’re a dude who works with cows. There wasn’t so much gunslinging and adventuring as there was riding alongside cattle as they slowly lumbered their way toward trains, to be loaded up and shipped north. The Olympics are expected to boost sales for the company in 2012, as we expect increased consumer demand for apparel and footwear similar to that worn by Nike sponsored athletes, he said.Nike is the market leader in the United Kingdom with an 18% share of the sportswear market, and will have a opportunity to push its merchandise on consumers through its Westfield London concept store.The store prime location means at least 70% of ticketholders must pass by before entering the Olympic grounds. And nothing gets the cash registers singing like a little nationalistic fervor.As well, Nike has also re opened its concept store, named for the last year London hosted the Olympics, and Niketown London, its largest retail store in the world.Of course, Nike will face stiff competition at the games, especially from longtime rival Adidas.Adidas is Nike largest competitor in the United Kingdom with a 15% market share, and is the official sportswear partner for the Olympics. This means all staff and technical officials will sport the three stripes.In Europe, Nike and Adidas are neck and neck with each holding a 37.3% market share in athletic footwear, while Adidas is ahead of Nike with a 16.5% share in athletic apparel (versus a 10.8% share for Nike)..
Kim is the first female skater to win four major competitions: Olympics, Worlds, Four Continents, and Grand Prix Final. More importantly, Kim had never finished a competition off the podium during her entire career, which was unprecedented in the history of figure skating. Kim owned the podium.
Dylan comments, look at traffic based on a patent pending algorithm to determine if the traffic is valid. Our product protects advertisers from invalid traffic or IVT, from the most sinister to the most innocent. Has its own proprietary tests for IVT that allow it to vet traffic before going out to third party vendors.
Scott, very good “usage/access” piece. On the subject of the previous post and 20 second attention span, I have coached some clients on the fact that everyone’s 15 minutes of fame has been truncated and have put them through the exercise of reducing their “elevator pitch” to 140 characters. You should see these sales types and pr types squirm in the process, but most DO end up with a decent “twit” pitch.
