Dear God Kids
We are the answer to the ever changing market • Empire International addresses the need to concurrently integrate two distinct but parallel marketing and licensing strategies. • These are promotional licensing and consumer product licensing
• Promotions, a function of marketing and licensing, but also of sales are integrated disciplines merging within our business. The further enhances the requisite need for an integrated approach to a compressing and concentric market place.
Consumer Product Licensing
We keep our eyes on the market. Our experience is a strategic map to leveraging trends and recognizing consumer demand within a marketplace… whether it be from the launch and support of the brand via promotions, or licensing to franchise business and partnership development. Our execution is rooted in a “touchpoint-strategy” and an unwavering understanding of your consumer. Kids are smart; their play and product usage patterns have underlying purpose and sophistication in a highly competitive market place. We feel we must be boldly aggressive and progressive to maximize a brand’s full potential. We approach each brand individually, based on key marketing and business objectives to integrate a cross platform strategic map to the brand development outline of every licensing program.
