Johnson & Johnson's Branding Strategy?

Posted by Anonymous on 25 Points
I'm really confused as to what their branding strategy? Can someone please explain it to me? Is it multi-branding?

    Simply put, they have a branding strategy for each of their proprietary brands, as well as one for Johnson & Johnson, the parent company, the latter being how they position it as "A family company," a strategy meant to bring all of their individual brands under that single "umbrella."

    Hope that helps.

    Well to begin with SC Johnson not Johnson and Johnson is "the family company."

    They are a true brand company: like Lever Bros and P&C and Unilever and, yes, SC Johnson, they package multiple products in multiple categories . Here, unlike say Ford or Microsoft, it's the brand name not the corporate name that is the focus. In this case, they don't offer competing brands into the same market (as P&G does) hoping to capture multiple segments.

    Strategically they want you to think about the product not the company: when you cut your finger you want a Band Aid, not a bandage. When your breath smells you want Listerine, not a mouthwash.
