Dual Brand Strategy, Success in Emerging Markets & Entering High-End Market
Sparkle implements a dual brand strategy to expand its product range for the global market. Sparkle is the mainstream graphics cards brand and Calibre, the high-end graphics cards brand. As far as mainstream graphics cards are concerned, the rapid growth in emerging markets has to be taken into consideration. That is why Sparkle builds core competitive advantage by mastering key technology and offering customized products to meet the demands in specific markets. With comprehensive sales and marketing plans in place, Sparkle has already gained significant market share in emerging markets. Sparkle will continue to manage business developments and set up complete distribution channels in emerging markets with more flexible local marketing strategies.
