Strategic Planning & Vision
For clients considering licensing, our feasibility study evaluates the viability of extending a brand into new categories and retail channels. Through the exploration of the competitive landscape, market dynamics and relevant category opportunities, we provide brand owners with a comprehensive analysis that recommends a specific course of action. For those with existing licensing programs, our team performs a thorough assessment that evaluates the program’s successes, challenges, management and operations to ensure that optimal potential is being realized. The final deliverable is a comprehensive analysis that includes specific recommendations to increase the overall performance of the client’s licensing program.
In today’s competitive marketplace, clearly differentiating a product offering is vital. Leveraging our extensive experience building world-class licensing programs, we help manufacturers and retailers harness the power of classic brands to build their businesses and differentiate their product offerings.
We begin by understanding a client’s licensing goals, whether they are to reach new consumer targets, enter new categories or channels of distribution, or increase retail penetration. We then identify the most relevant licensing properties, ultimately recommending those that will best attract attention to a manufacturer or retailer’s product line. Our strong network of relationships enable us to assist clients in securing the most reputable and sought-after brands and entertainment properties for product differentiation.
Our work in this space spans companies in the fashion, fashion accessories, home textiles, and electronics categories, among others. Some examples of our success in this area include the acquisition of the Icon Eyewear license for Everlast, to create a line of UV protective eyewear, and the Erwin Pearl license for Grand Central Terminal, a well-known jewelry manufacturer, for a line of costume jewelry sold at Erwin Pearl stores. Additionally, Moxie forged a unique alliance with Cole Haan that resulted in a year-long advertising program that featured the NYC Subway system in all Cole Haan stores.
Strategic Brand Licensing
With its many benefits, licensing can be one of the most powerful tools in a brand’s marketing arsenal. In today’s marketplace, strategic brand licensing is among the most authentic forms of communication, providing consumers with additional opportunities to interact with a brand in fresh and exciting ways. By integrating brands throughout daily life, licensed products forge a richer connection between the consumer and the core brand.
Licensing enhances a brand’s image and positioning, generates revenue through the sale of products, adds consumer touch points while increasing the popularity and profitability of brands. A well-defined, strategic licensing program promotes, supports, and protects a company or artist’s most precious asset – its name.
We have extensive experience in managing the complexities and demands of licensing programs. As we build our clients’ brands, we ensure excellence in execution and long-term success, across corporate brands, entertainment and digital properties and artists and designers. We create strategies to take your brand where it’s never been before. How do we do it? At Moxie, brand extensions start with creativity and innovation. Our in-depth knowledge of licensing and an understanding of the marketplace, combined with our longstanding manufacturer and retail relationships, are the key elements for identifying and unlocking each brand’s licensing potential. We create licensed products with strong consumer appeal that strengthen and protect our clients’ brands while maximizing royalty revenue for them.
