Brand Alliances are the outcome of understanding among firms to join hands for promoting their brands together or for bringing out a totally new product into the marketplace. The basic aim of such alliances is to capture new markets and/or improve the customer base. In the competitive environment, marketers face threats and opportunities in quick succession. To meet these eventualities or to take advantage of the opportunities, brand alliances provide quick and effective solutions.
