Collaborative marketing is the process of working together with several team members, teams, or brands for mutual gain and to promote your brand, minimize costs, increase sale as well as achieve marketing and business goals. These brands usually operate in different industries, but share an overlapping audience. Firstly, through collaborating with brands that share similar brand values and/or target audience, the company/brand is able to create something special that appeals to their target audience. Secondly, collaborative marketing can also help to infuse new life into your brand and help retain customer loyalty and interest in addition to gaining interest from potential customers. Lastly, it enables brands/companies to create marketing campaigns that might not have been possible without a collaboration and this could help increase brand awareness and strengthen the brand’s messaging so it resonates better with new and existing consumers.
