Therefore, whether the brand's positioning is in line with their own personality is one of the important factors for the younger generation to judge whether purchase behavior has occurred.

Co-branded products help to break the inherent brand positioning of the brand in the minds of consumers and create a new brand image, thereby attracting the attention of young consumers.

The best Guochao + Guoman marketing is not to use "Guochao" as a pure marketing means, but to use Guochao IP as a carrier to convey corporate attitudes to more consumers, and at the same time integrate "Guochao" into the brand's lasting growth strategy.

As a childhood memory of generations of people, Huluwa has accompanied the growth of generations.

Two-dimensional marketing

The benefits of cross-border marketing lie in the superposition of traffic effects and the reshaping of existing attention groups. The difficulty lies in how two originally independent and cut brands can form an overflow of attention and cognition through the complementarity of brand carriers in the cross-border process, and avoid dilution and erosion of brand cognition.

In this Shangshu's view, the cross-border between strong brands, if only replaced with existing traffic resources, energy efficiency is extremely limited, because traffic is open and decentralized, and let traffic produce brand communication energy efficiency, there are two basic demands, one is traffic attention, the other is the relevance of brand recognition.

Nowadays, the two-dimensional culture represented by national comics is breaking the circle and gradually entering the public's vision. With the rise of the national comic industry, its strong traffic and eye-catching ability have allowed major brands to see this huge cake.

Whether it is the previous "Ancestor of the Magic Road" × cute, "Full-time Master"× McDonald's, or "Nezha", "Jiang Ziya" X Mengniu, all show the strong charm and market of national comic IP in marketing. Huluwa, as our 8090 childhood memories, can be said to be a huge cultural IP.

Especially after experiencing communication difficulties such as routine desensitization, screen failure, and social exhaustion, more and more brands have shifted their attention to new marketing paths, wanting to establish emotional links with their target audiences through younger and more appropriate communication methods. Cross-border cooperation with national comic IP is one of the hottest ways at present.
