What is Tie-in Marketing? Meaning.

Tie-in Marketing is a Advertising approach in which a company creatively and purposefully creates an association (a tie-in) between the company, its products or services, and whatever is top-of-mind or "hot" in the collective consciousness at that moment. Tie-in marketing can create instant differentiation, attracts media attention, creates awareness, generates referrals and word-of-mouth, and builds community and market relationships and lets your firm or product join the conversation your potential customers are already having.

Examples of this intentional piggybacking can be found around:

  • Major sports events (Olympics). Compare: Ambient Advertising

  • Trends (global warming)

  • Celebrities

  • New movies

  • Seasons and holidays (Christmas)

  • Latest buzz or fads.
