Horizontal marketing can also be called horizontal marketing, "thinking out of the box" is the core idea of its model. As a kind of lateral thinking, it goes beyond the original products and markets, and stimulates new market and profit growth through original ideas and product development. For example, yicang industrial co., a Japanese trading company, used to import traditional Chinese medicine from China. However, in an era when western medicine dominated the market, the sales of traditional Chinese medicine were not good, and a large number of drugs were stored in warehouses. Later, the company will be linked to traditional Chinese medicine and the Japanese habit of tea drinking, decided to open a combine Chinese traditional medicine and tea in central Tokyo's new industry - "Chinese prescription eat tea", after the set up shop business is very good. There is no essential connection between Chinese medicine and tea, but yicang has created a new market by jumping out of the marketing field of Chinese medicine. Summary, is in meet the film between the different needs of enterprise customers based on the commercial interests of strategic alliance, through the joint marketing, make full use of surrounding resources, break the barriers between various industries, reduce their costs and risks, creating each other after consumption to achieve a win-win situation.
橫向營銷也可以稱為水平營銷，“跳出思維定式”是其模式的核心理念。作為一種橫向思維，它超越了原有的產品和市場，通過原創理念和產品開發刺激了新的市場和利潤增長。例如，日本貿易公司益倉工業公司曾經從中國進口中藥。然而，在西藥占主導地位的時代，中藥的銷售情況不佳，大量藥品儲存在倉庫中。后來，該公司將傳統中醫與日本飲茶的習慣聯系起來，決定在東京中心的新產業中開一個中藥和茶的組合 - “中藥處方吃茶”，開店后生意非常好。中藥與茶葉之間沒有本質的聯系，但是，宜倉通過跳出中藥營銷領域創造了一個新的市場。總結，是滿足電企業客戶的不同需求的前提下建立戰略聯盟的商業利益，通過聯合營銷，充分利用周邊資源，打破各個行業之間的壁壘，降低成本和風險，創造彼此消費后實現雙贏的局面。
