You can use two different types of branding strategies – you may give different brand names to different products launched by you. This strategy is called multi-branding strategy. Lever Brothers, world fame marketing machine, follow this strategy. The advantage of this strategy lies in the fact that the failure of one brand doesn’t have any cascading effect on other products. The other strategy is called blanket branding. Companies like Colgate Palmolive follow this strategy. Under this strategy, all the products are launched under the same brand name. For example, all skin care products are Palmolive brands. The advantage offered by this strategy is that the cost of launching a new brand is pretty low as compared to that involved in multi-branding strategy.
