Strategy -Strategically price all products at the top of the market base price relying on brand and quality to offset the price differential. Objective 2- Increase profit margins. Even with a high or low share of the market it’s your margins that make or break you. Apple has great margins but a low market share across the board due to competitors low price points.

Every great product’s next version will always do great despite its functionality based solely on the anticipation from its previous version. Ex: If you liked the iPhone 7 why would you not like the 7S with newly added features and design? Strategy - Use annual conference and events to announce release and information on each new product before it hits the market. This allows the consumer to build a demand for the product before it ever hits the shelf. Objective 2 - Sustain and expand on strongly branded name.

Strategy - Be a trend setter, enter new product markets before competition, and deliver current products at an unreachable standard of quality. If they continue to set trends, enter new product lines and take their share of the market they will not only build their brand they will dominate the competition NO 3. 18 Marketing report of Apple iPhone by Oliver Ayuk April, 2018
