Blessed from the mighty heavens by the Greek Goddess of Strength, Power and Victory read Nike; the brand hasalways captured one’s imagination and strengthened its position among the upper echelons of marketing icons. Nike’s marketing strategy draws your attention by interrupting you, attracting you, ensnaring you and finally and most importantly satisfying you. In a recent conference, Paul Knight , the charismatic founder and ex- CEO of Nike chose a divergent outlook to most other speakers on thesubject of choosing Nike over competition. He asked people who run to rise from the comfort of their seats. He then asked those who run three or more times a week to keep standing.

Then came the late 80’s and with it the pain of losing out on sales to Reebok who introduced training shoes, tailor made for a growing breed – health conscious women. In a bid to regain market share, Nike played to their strength andcountered punched with new models of shoes designed for various sports as per customer requirements. This was the phase when Knight and Bowman realized the importance of aggressive marketing coupled with product innovation and began to invest a princely part of corporate revenues towards marketing and advertising. By the early 90’s, Nike was ranked as one of the best advertisers in the world,soulfully striking one’s emotional chords rather than the rationale ones (McDonough and Braungart 2002).
In the earlier days, Nike was known to be a product oriented organization. The motto was to just plainly and simply just sell shoes .Gradually that changed as a function of time with the focus shifting to a more customer oriented approach. Prime importance was given to the...
