  12. 12. Positioning Map cont.• Illustrated in the tables are the net revenues of the major players in the industry back in 2010, together with their market shares.• The lower table illustrates the target market and price bracket of the prominent players in the industry.• Though price range may not be far from each other, primary target market will be the issue among the players in the industry. Rusty Lopez may be marketed to the lower age bracket due to its lower price.• What these players offer to their market are identical; what differentiates is the marketing efforts and promotions. This is what Hickok lacks. They tested the water back in early 2000 by acquiring the services of two TV personalities to endorse their products. ph.linkedin.com/in/akeeldalisay
  13. 13. What HICKOK lacks? For the past decades, Hickok’s target market remains the same.The styles and designs of their bags and wallets somehow does not fit forthe younger generations whose sometimes after the name of a productalone, not the quality and the price. They attempted to penetrate the younger markets back in early2000’s, planning to acquire the services of a few collegiate players asendorsers; to capture students, especially college students. It is quite agood choice as majority of the college students are watching theirrespective schools’ games in the major collegiate leagues. However, theyended up with TV personalities Brad Turvey and Bernadette Allison, whoare household names that time. But they stopped the endorsementsthere. They haven’t had an endorser since that time. They should be aggressive in media and print ads to better capturetheir target markets. ph.linkedin.com/in/akeeldalisay
