NIKE is an American sportswear manufacturing company. The company, started in 1964 by Philip Knight, a track athlete at the University of Oregon, and his coach Mr. Bill Bowerman, has grown to become a multinational corporation involved in designing, developing, manufacturing, and marketing its footwear and apparels internationally.

Although Nike’s initial product was athletic shoes, it has ventured into baselayers, jerseys, casual shoes, sports shorts, cleats, etc. for various types of sports such as football, soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, and cricket. One of the primary factors that have led to Nike’s massive growth internationally is its marketing strategy. The company has utilized extensive advertising through the media, internet, music and movies to grow its customer base. Nike has also been trying to better its products now and then to keep an edge over its main competitors such as PUMA and Adidas.
One of the latest marketing strategies that Nike has ventured into is the use of mobile applications and wearable technology. Nike liaised with Apple, a technology company in the United States known for its phone brand, iPhone to create an electronic wristband known as the Fuelband. Fuelband tracks its wearers’ physical activities such as number of steps taken daily and quantity of energy spent. In 2013, the company introduced a better version of the Fuelband called Twitter of Fitness. The new version claims that the more friends a person has on its social network, the more they live. The new model of the Fuelband, available for $150, has seen the company slowly enter the technology market. Nike is still working with Apple as the latest Apple model has sensors that allow people to use the iPhones to keep track of their Fuel Points accumulated as one engages in physical activities.
