Brand Extension

...DAYANAND SAGAR BUSINESS SCHOOL BANGALORE ASSIGNMENT OF PRODUCT & BRAND MANAGEMENT ON SUCCESSFUL AND UNSUCCESSFUL BRAND EXTENSIONS SUBMITTED TO- Mr. Sai Ganesh SUBMITTED BY –Khushbu Roy DSBSPGDM09022 BRAND EXTENSION “Brand extension is using the leverage of a well known brand name in one category to launch a new product in a different category.” Brand Extension is the use of an established brand name in new product categories. This new category to which the brand is extended can be related or unrelated to the existing product categories. A renowned/successful brand helps an organization to launch products in new categories more easily. For instance, Nike’s brand core product is shoes. But it is now extended to sunglasses, soccer balls, basketballs, and golf equipments. An existing brand that gives rise to a brand extension is referred to as parent brand. If the customers of the new business have values and aspirations synchronizing/matching those of the core business, and if these values and aspirations are embodied in the brand, it is likely to be accepted by customers in the new business. ...

A Natural Extension

...The article, “A Natural Extension” showcases the ever-increasing business of catering. Adding catering capabilities is appealing, although it is not simple. This article gives you an idea about the depth of catering. Throughout the article, five operators offer evidence that catering can be done. Many existing companies are expanding their restaurant operations to cater to Catering. The decision to introduce catering services to an existing foodservice operation is hardly the no-brainer it may see, especially in belt-tightening time. For one thing, the same sluggish economy that may spawn the revenue-generating idea can work against it. For operators casting about for new ways to bulk revenue, catering is an obvious option. A natural extension of many food service operations, it builds on structures, systems and skills already in place to run the core business. Tom Lavaris says, “The catering business is fraught with all kinds of potentially difficult issues.” Mr. Lavaris is the executive vice president of operations for Seattle-based Schwartz Brothers Restaurants. Catering can be a significant boom to business; however, there are potential pitfalls. According, ingenuity, hard work, an intuitive sense as to how one door can open to ever more venues catering can be momentous roar in commerce. Just like any business, profitably is judged by increases in the bottom line. Catering is no different. However, longevity is the key to success. How well a company faces adversity and is...

Sustainable Agriculture Extension Manual

...is a major obstacle to food security and sustainable agriculture in many countries. Access to sufficient food is a sustainable manner is a fundamental human right. Realizing this, NGOs, community organizations, research institutions and governments in Africa have been testing alternative agricultural technologies and approaches for over a decade. Such approaches as "conservation farming" and organic agriculture are becoming part of the technical packages of both international and national research and extension institutions. It is this growing experience and interest that has prompted IIRR and its partners to document and share the lessons learned so far. The participants in the workshop that produced this manual took a broad view of sustainable agriculture, including not only farming technologies (contour planting, feeding cattle with crop by-products, and so on), but also its social and economic dimensions (for example, the marketing of produce and the organization of extension services). And around the core concept of the wise, sustainable and efficient use of natural resources for livelihood security, the workshop participants identified a range of policy issues that determine whether attempts to promote sustainable agriculture will be successful (see the diagram on the next page). This manual tries to show the relationships among the physical technologies, the social, economic and policy frameworks within which they are implemented, and the organizational processes that......

Extension naming strategies include direct and indirect naming, while categorical fit is the similarity between an extended product and its parent brand’s cognitive category. Further, the interaction effect and the relative effectiveness of various combinations of the two predictors when determining brand personality transfer are also explored. Design/methodology/approach – A 2 £ 2 factorial between-subject experimental design with one covariate is used to test the proposed hypotheses. The experiment involves 242 participants from a university in Taiwan. Findings – The findings show that consumers perceive higher brand personality transfer when a direct naming strategy is...

Brand Extensions

...Brand Extensions and consumers perceptions During the 21st century, globalization has transformed the way businesses operate (Doh, 2003). Competition is tougher than even before and for that reason, companies have to maximize their competitive advantages in order to stay in business. One way to do it is by exploiting their brand name through brand extension, the practice of using a well-known brand name to promote new products in an unrelated field (“Brand Extension”, 2013). Previous studies have shown that the success of a brand extension often depends on certain assumptions about consumer behaviour, such as “beliefs and favorable attitudes toward the original brand” (Aaker & Keller, 1990). Moreover, Aaker & Keller have shown that one of two factors must be respected for a brand extension to be successful: the perceived ability of a manufacturer to extend to a new product class and whether the new product is a complement of the original one or not (1990). They found out that when this factor is guaranteed consumers are likely to transfer the quality associated with the brand to the new product characterized by the same brand. This has to be true whether the brand is perceived as a high quality brand or not. We can find the evidence of this statement in their article when they describe the effects of a brand extension. They argued: “If the brand is associated with high quality, the extension should be benefit; if it is associated with an inferior quality, the......

Consumer Attitude Towards Brand Extensions

...Consumer Attitude Towards Brand Extensions: An Integrative Model and Research Propositions Sandor Czellar1 University of Geneva 1 University of Geneva, Section HEC, 40, boulevard du Pont-d’Arve, 1211 Geneva 4, Switzerland. 00 41 22 705 8114 (tel), 00 41 22 705 8104 (fax), czellars@hec.fr (email). 1 Consumer Attitude Towards Brand Extensions: An Integrative Model and Research Propositions The paper proposes an integrative model of the antecedents and consequences of brand extension attitude based on the dominant cognitive paradigm. The four key processes of the model are: (1) the perception of fit, (2) the formation of primary attitudes towards the extension, (3) the link between extension attitude and marketplace behaviour and (4) the reciprocal effect of brand extension attitude on parent brand/extension category attitude. Moderator and control variables of these processes are identified and classified into three groups: (1) consumer characteristics, (2) marketer-controlled factors and (3) external factors. This integrative model leads to the identification of missing links and variables in past research, resulting in a propositional inventory for future studies. The paper ends with a reflection on the long-term perspectives of scientific inquiry on brand extensions. Keywords: Brand extensions, Consumer Attitudes, Brand Associations, Brand Affect, Cognitive Psychology 2 Introduction Brand extension is the "use of established brand names to......

Drivers of Brand Extension Success

...Drivers of Brand Extension Success by Franziska Volckner & Henrik Sattler. Student ID: 0706335; Word count: 1837 Before we begin, we must first make a distinction between the concepts of “product” and “brand”. A ‘product’ is defined as a service or a good that can be offered to the market for consumption/purchase. An example of a product would be e.g. a Television set (good) or a Music concert (service). Brands on the other hand, exist to help consumers differentiate and identify between different types of product providers. As such, brands are one of the most enduring aspects of a company. Brand strength (also known as “Brand equity), measures the positive differential effect that knowing the brand name has on the actions of the consumer to the product/service on offer. A strong brand not only creates emotional attachment between the consumers, but also allows for the company to establish barriers to entry, enjoy high profits and undertake a variety of brand strategy decisions to continue increasing their appeal to customers. One of the most commonly used brand development strategies is – brand extension where by an established brand name is used to launch a new product. This strategy is popular because it allows the company to leverage the brands existing strength and customer base and as such spend less on product promotion & introduction campaigns, advertising, price deals etc (Collins – Dodd & Louvierre 1999; Tauber 1988). Since nearly 80% of brand extensions are......

Copyright Term Extension Act

...Copyright Extension Act Anne Nunes May 13, 2015 Submitted to Professor Ashley Minton Summer I 2015 BUL2241 Business Law I Indian River State College Copyright Extension Act The Copyright Extension Act, also known as the Mickey Mouse protection act was passed in 1998. A copyright is defined as “an intangible right granted by statute to the author or originator of certain literary or artistic productions (Miller & Hollowell, 2014, p. 84). The purpose of this act is to protect “books, records, films, artworks, architectural plans, menus, music videos, and product packaging” (Miller & Hollowell, 2014, p. 85), from being built upon to make new creations. For individuals the act gives copyright protection for their life plus 70 years, for publishing houses the copyright is 95 years from the date of publication or 120 years from the date of creation, whichever comes first. The Copyright Extension Act, is also know as the Mickey Mouse protection act because as Mickey Mouse’s first expiration date for the copyright protection neared, Walt Disney pressed for changes to the Copyright Act. In 1976, the United States congress revised the act to change it from a maximum protection of 56 years including extensions, to the life of the author plus 50 years. Which in turn guaranteed protection for Mickey through 2003. Again, in 1998 when Mickey’s protection time was running out, the United States Congress changed the protection time to the current terms of, life of the......

Weave Extensions

...are extensions women use to lengthen or add volume to their own hair. The majority of the human and synthetic weaves are long, straight, and curly. The owner continues to describe how many women exert confidence women while wearing them. As a woman, I don’t disagree; there is nothing more powerful than a woman who feels beautiful. However, as an African American woman, I know the trend is natural hair. Natural hair is hairs which has not been permed or straighten –like the weaves described earlier. The owner didn’t describe any weaves of natural texture. Apparently, natural hair wearers didn’t have an option to lengthen or voluminous their hair. Nevertheless, when the owner began answering caller’s questions, my views about her product was confirmed. According to the owner, they don’t offer a weave product for natural hair –yet! Eureka, the owner spots an opportunity within the hair/weave industry and I hear her mentally formulate a plan taking the product to manufacturers, to distributors, to retailers, and finally to customers who need it –desire it. Product Mix/Product Lines So to begin, the owner of the wig shop has to fine-tune her product mix or product lines of natural hair that she can offer her customers. Because of her expertise in the hair industry, the owner decides to use similar product lines for the new product as the following: Category Style Material Hair Extensions Natural Wave (Kinky) Human Afro Wave Synthetic Style Extension......

Brand Extension

...NEW PRODUCTS AND BRAND EXTENSIONS To facilitate the discussion, it is useful to establish some terminology. When a firm introduces a new product, it has three main choices as to how to brand it: 1. It can develop a new brand, individually chosen for the new product. 2. It can apply, in some way, one of its existing brands. 3. It can use a combination of a new brand with an existing brand. A brand extension is when a firm uses an established brand name to introduce a new product. When a new brand is combined with an existing brand, the brand extension can also be called a sub-brand. An existing brand that gives birth to a brand extension is referred to as the parent brand. If the parent brand is already associated with multiple products through brand extensions, then it may also be called a family brand. Brand extensions can be broadly classified into two general categories: Line extension: The parent brand is used to brand a new product that targets a new market segment within a product category currently served by the parent brand. A line extension often involves a different flavor or ingredient variety, a different form or size, or a different application for the brand (e.g., Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp shampoo). Category extension: The parent brand is used to enter a different product category from that currently served by the parent brand (e.g.. Swiss Army watches). Most new products are line extensions—typically 80 percent to 90 percent in any one year.......

Brand Extension

...Brand extension, or using a brand that is already set in the market to join a new product category is a method that is often used in order to diminish the risks of introducing a new product. Choosing a right strategy when expanding a product category is primordial for a company. Introducing a new product carries many risks and costs: it is costly because the development of a new product always entails many expenses, such as marketing, and it is dangerous because it is very hard to predict consumer reaction to a new product, especially under a new brand name.  By going ahead with a brand extension a company can partially solve these two issues, by launching the new product under an existing brand name will reduce marketing and distribution costs and might attract consumers towards the good as they will go for a “known” brand. Levi-Strauss although being one of the world’s most known maker and distributor of denim and casual wear should consider a brand extension of larger clothes that target the growing plus size customer segment in the United States. This segment is a growing market, and many stores with incredible brand equity are not taking advantage of this growing segment. In fact, this segment has grown to 34 percent of the population, both male and female of all ages, and continues to grow dramatically every year. Also, this segment is a $27 billion dollar opportunity, and also appears to be increasing every year. Therefore, by this action of not manufacturing larger......
