What should Bosch India do ?
Aftermarket products under the MICO brand

DO NOT KILL MICO
Does the "Bosch" position gel with the aftermarket consumers ?
Need for an Umbrella brand ?
What's the effect on the brand ?
How to handle corporate branding ?
MICO still strong in the Evoked set model
MICO still a stronger brand than Bosch
Loosing out to competition
- Retain the MICO brand for the aftermarket products
- Position it for: "Quality and reliability" (as it has always been known)
- If corporate branding is a must: Place logo in the background
- Even TODAY the MICO brand has not been completely killed
*Source - Company website
( Recall : Aftermarket 40% of automotive revenues => Problem )
- Bosch in 2008 has improved over Bosch in 2004
- Yet compared to MICO it has a weaker Brand personality
Brand identity and attitude
Brand attitude and perception
Brand attitude and perception
- The power of a brand is inversely proportional to its scope
- Dilution occurs when products of different characteristics are put under the same brand.
(EX : BMW - "Ultimate driving machine")
- Bosch "Innovation" tag on aftermarket products with relatively lower innovation component
- Often trying to fit in different products result in a compromise positioning
- Preferable to strongly differentiate, to better compete
- Diesel systems -> "Innovation"; Aftermarket -> "Quality and reliability"
- Brands are brands, companies are companies
- Customers buy brands NOT companies
- Brands should remain customer focused
If corporate branding is needed
- Use Bosch logo in the background
No company name
In the background
- Aftermarket parts have relatively lower innovation component
- Aftermarket consumers : mechanics, truck drivers ... use aftermarket to mostly for repairs
- They may seek quality and "what generally has worked for them"
- "Quality and reliability" could be a more apt positioning for aftermarket parts
- Bosch : "Innovation" Vs MICO : "Quality and reliability"
- Some products may fit the "Innovation" tag backed by consumer requirement for it
Product "not so" innovative
Weak / diluted
- loss of 50yrs
- emotional connect
