Why Brand Alignment Is The Best In The Industry.

If you are new to shopping for a brand protection provider, it might be confusing to tell the difference between companies. It might sound like everybody offers the same type of enforcement. This could not be further from the truth.

The Competition

  • Requires YOU to send a Cease & Desist letter only if YOU have the email of the unauthorized seller 
  • Since only a small percentage of unauthorized sellers are contacted, the competition averages a 10%-30% removal rate
  • Uses basic investigative techniques like Google searches or buying low quality lists in hopes of finding emails to send letters
  • Uses only reactive techniques to temporarily remove grey market sellers

Brand Alignment

  • We send a Cease & Desist letter to every single unauthorized seller on Amazon for you
  • Since 100% of all unauthorized sellers are contacted, Brand Alignment averages an 80%-90%+ Removal Rate
  • Uses hundreds of proprietary investigative techniques to identify personal information of sellers and supply chain sources
  • Uses a mix of proactive and reactive techniques to permanently remove grey market sellers

No competitor even comes close to our level of MAP enforcement.

Why is our approach so effective? Because we wipe out the vast majority of MAP violators in one swoop by targeting EVERY seller with cease & desist letters.  We then take care of any remaining stubborn sellers with advanced proprietary techniques which includes the largest unauthorized seller database in the business.


We’ve achieved permanent results for brands ranging from small healthcare to billion-dollar consumer electronics - and we’d love for your brand to be our next success story.

Our Simple & Easy Internet-Wide MAP Enforcement Process

First, we onboard all of your brand’s products into our database. During this process we match each ASIN or UPC with the correct marketplace URL and MAP price. This process can take 1-2 weeks depending on the amount of work involved.

Next, we begin monitoring your listings 24/7/365 for preliminary data. This is the data we will use to get the first glance at your marketplace. We will provide you with a real-time dashboard that displays the results.

Thirdly, we start sending three rounds of Cease & Desist letters using a Graduated Enforcement System that is proven to have an extremely high success rate. Sellers are contacted with 24 hours of appearing on monitored listing. 

Finally, for all remaining sellers we begin Open-Source Intelligence techniques to identify their personal information and research the supply chain in which they acquired the product. During this phase we work closely with the brand to create a Do Not Sell list and offer suggestions for preventing future grey market sales.

Maximum Effectiveness For Brands That Need The Very Best

Graduated Enforcement System

Rather than only sending one Cease & Desist letter to an unauthorized seller, we achieve major success rates by sending three letters ranging for a 1st Warning to a Final Warning. Expect anywhere from 60%-90% removal from this phase alone.

       Techniques We Use:

  • Electronic Cease & Desist Letters
  • Physical Cease & Desist Letters to Place of Residence or Business
  • Brand Registry Complaints and Copyright Infringement Complaints

Investigative and Proactive Approach

Our cutting-edge investigation using OSINT techniques used by the CIA and NSA allows us to identify sellers at a 95%+ success rate. 


Using this information we create a Do Not Sell list for your brand and your distributors to prevent your product from getting in the hands of unauthorized sellers.

       Our extensive measures include:

  • Access to Our Investigative Results
  • Test Buys and Serial Number Tracing
  • Do Not Sell List Creation & Brand Protection Recommendations

Astonishing Results Across Multiple Industries

We’ve achieved 80%-90%+ enforcement rates in every single industry we have worked in. That includes the following:

  • Consumer Electronics

  • Apparel and Shoes

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Health & Beauty

  • Sports & Outdoors

  • Mobile Phone Accessories

  • And More

Each industry has its own bells and whistles - that’s why we create a comprehensive approach and tailor-made battle plan that leaves nothing to chance. If you’d like to see what that looks like for your industry then reach out today and we’ll be happy to help.


We work with you to understand your pricing strategy, distributor MAP agreements, and all forms of pricing policies including MAP, MSRP, UPP, UMRP, and IMAP pricing. 

Our Careful Approach Minimizes All Risk & Liability For Your Brand

After two years in business, we’re very proud to say that neither us or any of our brands have had any legal issues of any kind related to our service.

 

That’s because we take exhaustive measures to shield your business & brand, such as:

 

Any infringement complaints filed by us are done with the utmost care and transparency. We do not file counterfeit complaints without test buys and approval from the brand. Our trademark complaints are done with caution and all bases covered.

 

We give you the option of using your own personal cease & desist letters or the option to customize our proven high performance Cease & Desist letters. These letters were crafted by Intellectual Property lawyers with a full focus on minimizing liability.


Finally, in this world, anybody can sue anybody for anything - but that doesn't mean it will stand up in court. There is nothing anyone can do to prevent frivolous lawsuits from disgruntled sellers. However, we do everything in our power to fully prepare you so that any case against you is quickly dismissed.
