Description

“Owning a number of brands within household cleaning offers benefits when it comes to new product development and promotions. Multi-brand advertising and special offers can help to give greater exposure to smaller brands within the portfolio, while cross-branding in an area such as fragrance (eg Air Wick on Mr Sheen) offers an opportunity for encouraging more consumers to buy a wider repertoire of products from a particular manufacturer.”
