Customer Profile: Under Armour Basketball

Under Armour is a sportswear company with one of our favorite taglines: “Everything here is built to make you better.” The company’s CEO is Kevin Plank, a former University of Maryland football player who has made it clear that his goal is to dethrone Nike as the world’s top retail sports brand. Under Armour has a shot – even though Nike still makes 10 times as many sales, Under Armour is growing three times as fast. Last year, Under Armour won Ad Age’s 2014 Marketer of the Year award for its “I Will What I Want” women’s campaign, which finally allowed them to expand their appeal across gender lines.

Audience Analysis: Old Navy's Consumer in the US

The newest “new face” of Old Navy is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, at least after Amy Poehler took her beautiful face elsewhere. And, if you go by the demographics of the clothing brand’s recent spokeswomen as any indication, Old Navy’s target audience should be between 44 (Poehler) and 54 (Dreyfus) years of age, female, and fans of comedy.
