Answer 1

Strategies include: (1) product—diversify brands and items models; (2) price—price to match or best competitors' prices; (3) distribution—build more intensive distribution; and (4) advertising—stress brand differences and benefits. For additional information, see text section and Table 10.5.

Answer 2

The four stages are: (1) emergence—before a market materializes, it exists as a latent market (when a product is launched that addresses the latent needs, the emergence stage begins); (2) growth—if the new product sells well, new firms will enter the market, ushering in a market-growth stage; (3) maturity—eventually, the competitors cover and serve all the major market segments and the market enters the maturity stage; and (4) decline—eventually, demand for the present products will begin to decrease, and the market will enter the decline stage. For additional details, see the chapter section.
