Brand Building and Advertising Strategies in Dark Markets - a new market research report on 2014-03-05 01:07:02
Advertising restrictions represent the key obstacle to companies communicating effectively with their consumers. This report shows how manufacturers can develop their brands in dark markets. Specific attention is paid to marketing by stealth, strategic options in below-the-line marketing, and alternative approaches such as boosting appropriate new product development.

Report Scope

- Overview of dark markets – realize how significant an issue this already is, as well as understand the possible future speed of legislation.
- Analysis of new product launches – spot trends in NPD and learn from successes and failures.
- Checklist of tactics – rate your brand performance on issues such as interactive marketing, experiential marketing, and retailer collaboration.
- Examples of best practice – understand how companies such as Carlsberg and UB Group have responded to dark markets so you can apply those approaches.
- Strategic overview – step back from the tactics to appreciate how a long-term strategic view can guide your decision-making

Key Highlights

In South Africa it has been estimated that an advertising ban would result in a 5–8% drop in branded liquor consumption followed by a recovery by the brand leaders at the expense of second-tier brands. Competing brands must utilize innovative strategies to mainatin market share.

Even in countries with bans in place, it may be possible to advertise a brand extension. In Norway, where it is legal to advertise products with less than 2.5% alcohol by volume, manufacturers have created light products on a limited scale, or even that are not available to consumers, in order to promote main brands with higher alcohol contents.

The tobacco sector pioneered the creation of both closed proprietary events (such as invitation-only music events) and brand experiences that are open to the public (such as branded cafes). And now some are taking a strategic approach by undermining the impact of plain packaging through price promotion.
