Strategies for architecting power brands: a market oriented outlook
by Lucía Fernández Reyes; Rajagopal
International Journal of Business Excellence (IJBEX), Vol. 6, No. 5, 2013

Abstract: Branding strategies inspired in power principles may explain the dynamics underlying the product life cycle. Previous works have associated the product life cycle with brand strategies, but product brand cycle has not been analysed under the perspective of power principles. Increasingly, we observe firm actions that at first sight seem irrational, like investing or funding activities apparently unrelated to the core business of the firm, even under tight financial or global constraints. Understanding the purpose of these unconventional activities and their alignment with the overall long term firm's strategy may help managers to improve their understanding of branding dynamics.
