Abstract

This research aims to explore the impact of different marketing strategies on the performance of Anta, a Chinese sportswear brand. The study utilizes SWOT analysis to identify Anta's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats and examines how traditional marketing, social media marketing, and sports event sponsorship affect the brand's performance. The research is based on a thorough review of the relevant literature and secondary data analysis. The findings indicate that Anta's strengths lie in its strong brand reputation, diversified product portfolio, and innovative design. However, the company faces challenges in the areas of distribution and international expansion. The study also reveals that social media marketing is a cost-effective and efficient way for Anta to engage with consumers and improve brand awareness, while sports event sponsorship can help the company enhance its brand image and reach a wider audience. In conclusion, this research provides insights into the marketing strategies that can help Anta improve its performance and competitiveness in the sportswear market. The study suggests that Anta should continue to invest in social media marketing and explore new opportunities for sports event sponsorship. The research contributes to the existing literature on sportswear marketing and provides valuable information for marketing practitioners and academics.
