Rosewood’s management used property specific advertising because it believed that using a marketing strategy based on the individual property brand would best distinguish Rosewood properties from its corporate branded competitors. However, Rosewood’s competitors are not exclusively corporate branded luxury hotels, they also include collections of individually branded unique luxury hotels. Although the company is doing well, the luxury hotel segment is highly competitive and becoming inundated with competition. In response to this, Rosewood’s new president and CEO, John Scott, is considering a new marketing strategy that will allow the company to enhance profits and boost growth.

This is also another advantage as each company that co-operates with Sony Music and vice versa will receive skill and ideas to the project. Finally another advantage of Synergy is that it influences the public opinion which again further helps promote their brand but also if Sony Music influences the public they will use more of their products meaning Sony Music may dominate the market and the industry.
