What business problem does it typically solve?

Growth strategy is about future-proofing your brand and products. All creativity is centered around business goals and your market, with the aim to increase and/or implement:

Market penetration: To increase market share and penetration, Rocketfuel discourages price-lowering in favour of a brand and product intervention that initiates value creation and increases perceived value in the eyes of the consumer.

Market expansion: This involves repositioning existing products for a new market in order to use existing capabilities and assets for further economic gain.

Product expansion: Often, a new product line extension is required in order to access new markets or grow the engagement of your existing customer base.

Diversification Strategies: Brand and product diversification offsets risk and initiates access to new markets without threatening your current market.
