Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Marketing Focus: Use the LA Rams as the focus of your analysis and address the following:

C. Expand upon and defend the potential benefit of one opportunity, identified in the SWOT matrix, for your selection.
D. Assess the extent to which the current marketing strategies are sufficient for reaching the currently intended demographic audience. What marketing strategies are currently being applied regarding your selection? Are they sufficient or insufficient for the current consumers of your selection?
