multi-brand strategy



Marketing of two or more similar and competing products by the same firm under different and unrelated brands. While these brands eat into each others' sales (see cannibalism), multi-brand strategy does have some advantages as a means of (1) obtaining greater shelf space and leaving little for competitors' products, (2) saturating a market by filling all price and quality gaps, (3) catering to brand-switchers users who like to experiment with different brands, and (4) keeping the firm's managers on their toes by generating internal competition.
