Pick a branded offering such as Southwest Airlines. Come up with 10 products or services that are alternative extension options. Include some that would be a stretch. Then evaluate each using the three criteria provided in the chapter.

I picked Newton Running (https://www.newtonrunning.com), a company that currently makes high end performance shoes for runners.
Here are 10 products or services the brand could try, as extension options:
1. Bicycles: runners and triathletes love to buy gear. The company could offer colorful high performance bike.
2. Swim gear: goggles, fins, sandals, the triathlete needs all of these to train and the flashier, higher performance the better.
3. Training videos: Newton shoes are built on scientific processes. Athletes are hungry for better training information.
4. Physical therapy services: Runners get hurt. Offering online diagnoses for simple, common aches and pains would save athletes a trip to the doctor and get them back on the road.
5. Online trainer & programs: A trainer on demand that could be personalized for each user, priced according to race goal.
6. Branded cameras: Like GoPro only it matches Newton's colorful philosophy.
7. Newton Races in Colorful places: Sponsor races in particularly colorful places like the tropics or Vegas to add to the branding and name ...
