  13. Product Line Extensions • Opportunities • Way to serve a segmented market • Adapt to consumer variety seeking and update or expand the core brand’s image • Increase shelf-space and attract more consumer attention • Offer a broader range of price points and thereby serve a wider audience of consumers • Utilize excess capacity • Increase sales quickly • Create a barrier to entry by increasing control of shelf-space

  14. Product Line Extensions • Threats • Blurring the rationale for each product in the line • Encouraging variety seeking • Diluting the core brand image • Increasing costs without increasing total sales, cannibalization • Reducing credibility with trade if extension sales are lower than promised • Offering competitors more opportunities to match products

  15. Brand Extensions • Brands may launch extensions as a way to leverage strong brand equity • Starbucks coffee – Starbucks ice cream • Hewlett Packard calculators – Hewlett Packard PCs and printers

  16. Brand Extensions • The “extendibility” of a brand is a function of its associations • Brands that have “laddered-up” and thus connect with broad values and goals often can be extended successfully to other categories that serve the same goal (e.g. Polo) • Brands that remain closely tied to their product category may only succeed with extensions to related categories (e.g., Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix and Aunt Jemima Syrup)

  17. Co-Branding • Ingredient brands • Intel Inside • Nutrasweet • DuPont Stainmaster • Composite brands • Master Card and issuing bank • Healthy Choice from Kellogg’s

  18. Global Branding • Global target • Teens, business travelers, affluents/aspirers • Global needs: simplicity, elegance, status • Global category needs • Yes: high tech, high signal (style, fashion) • No: local tastes, rituals, personal hygiene • Global equity • Country-of-origin imagery relevant (Coke, Levi’s, Harley-Davidson, Chanel, Evian, Nissan) • Weak, fragmented local competitors • Can leverage economies of scale
