Cross Brand Collaborations in Retail

Cross-brand collaboration is a marketing strategy which combines two offerings from separate companies. The technique is usually used to sell complementary products or services. Also called cross promotion or cross merchandising. Cross-branding occurs across fashion, beauty, travel, homewares and more. You can’t seem to move without seeing a big ‘X’ sandwiched between two brands logos to show they’ve been working on something together. Within retail stores you can often find the cross branded products across counter tops, parasite units etc.
