What are private labels?
Private labels—or store labels—are exclusive labels that a particular store owns. They are the packaging and brand names specific to a particular store. Examples include Walmart’s “Great Value” Costco’s “Kirkland” brand, and “Private Selection”, available from Kroger.
Okay, moving on…
It's important that you know some of the great advantages of private label, so here they are:
Higher profit margin:
Normally, when products of a brand positioned in the market or that are part of large franchises are distributed, the costs increase because they have higher extra expenses, but if the product that you are going to distribute is your own, you will no longer have to spend money buying products from other suppliers, the manufacturing price will benefit you, especially when you make production in considerable quantities.
Stand out from competitors
A well-defined private brand will help to show in a much clearer way what your specialization is in the sector in which you work, the competitive advantages of your brand and everything that makes you stand out from your competitors.
Also, competition is reduced, if you are a price matching retailer, private label products provide a great benefit. In many cases, you can get your supplier to design the same product, but without their label.
You can then charge full price for your product when your competition puts up the branded version.
Positioning of your company:
Creating your private brand will help you structure your customer attraction strategy. You can build your brand with your own products. For example, if you own a restaurant, industry, general business or distributor, and you want all your hygiene products to bear your name, this will generate remembrance among customers, as well as give prestige to your establishment.
You only have to give the indications about the products that you require, and the labels with your logo will give that unique touch to the products that are used in the establishment.
If the customer has a good experience with your private label products, they will want more, and the only place they can get what they want is from your company. In a sales-saturated world where loyalty is no longer as prevalent, this is one way to keep your customers coming back again and again.
