Use of brand of manufacture only: under this policy, the middlemen sell the products under the brand name decided by the manufacturer. They do not use any independent brand name.

b.      Middleman get full advantage of manufacturer goodwill

c.       It increases the sales of the middleman.

Using two brand names: under this policy, the middleman sells products under two brand names, products of the brand of manufacturer and products of their own brand name. The same product is marketed under the brand names.

Main advantages of this policy are:

1.       Middleman feels their own existence

2.       It increases the sales of the product very high because of the use of brands of both the manufacturer and middleman.

3.       The middlemen get full advantage of the goodwill or the manufacturer and of his own goodwill.
