Positioning is the process of designing an offer and enterprise image so that it occupies a distinct and valued place in the mind of the consumer. The objective of positioning a product or a service is to make sure that it occupies a certain place in the mind of the consumer (importer), differentiating it from the competition.

Positioning a product or service consists gaining a proper meaning in the mind of the customer as to where the product or service sits in the market segment to which it belongs. This may be achieved by product attributes (or service) or through international promotion policy.
