What are licensed merchandise?

One thing that comes to mind when marketing managers co-brand with other established franchise – is the licensed merchandise. In ODM, we have had a lot of credentials working with clients who are sourcing for product ideas for their campaign.

Brands use this strategy of having a collaboration with a more established brand so that they can leverage on their customer base. There has been a lot of retail businesses co-branding with popular franchises like games, movies and characters.

This is because brands recognize how effective it is to associate their brands with those that are powerful and have an establish target market that suits their business.

Brands do this by initiating a licensed agreement with the partner brand to establish the terms of using their brand name.

Examples are brands like McDonalds’ x Hello Kitty Toys and Miniso x Marvel.
