On the shoulders of giants
Being the new brand, the little guy, can be tough. Out there hustling, getting stores to pick up the brand, fighting for shelf space and trying to make a name . . . it’s hard work.
So when a lesser-known brand gets to team with a known winner, the little guy can really benefit. But these relationships are more than a pick-me-up for the new guy. The better-known brand wins too, and here’s how.
Go big (and often) or go home
The simplest one-to-one pairings are often the most effective, even the most elegant. We like them, and we do a lot of them.
But sometimes, you just need to go for broke. That's love, right? We go all in. That’s certainly true if you’re a brand competing for floor space in retailers, lusting for those eye-catching floor displays in high-competition sales windows (pick a holiday!).
Sharing in style: the FSI edition
At Dovetail, we think sparks fly in a relationship when we start sharing. Maybe it’s the first time he shares his jacket, or the first time she shares a bite of her dessert. Sharing is what takes that relationship to the next level. It makes that love connection even richer.
Ingredients for success
Sometimes, ingredients can be much more than a mere element in a recipe. Sometimes, they can be the entire show.
A good match can often be made with two ingredients that play well together. At other times, a good match can be an image or a theme that reflects the essence of the paired brands. Sometimes, it's two ingredients that just spell success.
