Nowadays, in an age of globalization, brands are growing ever more valuable. They have to differentiate one product from another, position the offer and also be adaptable both to changes in product lines and ranges, and to evolving consumers’ expectations. The continual increase in the number of products makes branding an increasingly complex business. This paper approaches, in a comparative, critical and impartial manner, the main brand name strategies, revealing the specific features, advantages and disadvantages of each.
