What is a general marketing strategy

Brand strategies

1. Term: Conditional, long-term, and global behavioral plans to achieve brand goals.

2. Selected forms: a) One brand strategy: Every product sold by the company in the market receives a brand. After a careful selection process in the company, each brand receives special attention and a corresponding budget that appears necessary to achieve its goals.
b) Multi-brand strategies(Mushroom method): Several brands are launched in one product area. Risk of cannibalism effect.
(1) Brand family strategy: Several family brands are run side by side within a company; in this way you can try to reach customers with different levels of demand. Despite high product standardization, a different brand position should be achieved through separate brand management (e.g. separate distribution). Cannibalization effects cannot be ruled out.
(2) Umbrella brand strategy: All products of a company are grouped under one brand (Umbrella method). Constant updating is possible through additional products under the umbrella of a brand. Buyers feel they are in good hands with these brand families, as they can find offers for their various needs at the level that suits them. The expansion of the product range can lead to a displacement of competition at the point of sale (displacement of shelf space).
c) Brand transfer strategy: Brand goodwill built up over the long term from established brands is used as a basis for diversifying into new product areas. The prerequisite for this is the development of specific competence, which must be recognized and accepted by the customer, image-related affinity to the main brand through the correspondence of relevant product properties (denotations) and / or non-factual, emotional or appealing product properties (connotations).
