Title
Influence of brand positioning strategies of Patanjali products on Consumer preference

Research Area
Positioning is a marketing strategy that aims to make a brand occupy a distinct position,
relative to competing brands, in the mind of the customer. Companies apply this strategy
either by emphasizing the distinguishing features of their brand (what it is, what it does and
how, etc.) or they may try to create a suitable image (inexpensive or premium, utilitarian or
luxurious, entry-level or high-end, etc.) through advertising. Once a brand is positioned, it is
very difficult to reposition it without destroying its credibility. It is also called product
positioning.
Positioning strategies can be conceived and developed in a variety of ways. It can be derived
from the object attributes, competition, application, the types of consumers involved, or the
characteristics of the product class. All these attributes represent a different approach in
developing positioning strategies, even though all of them have the common objective of
projecting a favorable image in the minds of the consumers or audience. Patanjali uses brand
positioning strategies of their products to influence the consumer. Patanjali uses brand
positioning because brand positioning determines the framework of visual and
communication-related execution. It also determines future brand development as brand
positioning is the basis for gaining competitive advantage, especially in the context of global
changes.
