two-level marketing
Explanation:
Definitely not "second-hand marketing", which sounds as if second-hand goods are being sold. "Two-level marketing" is a technique, for instance that a certain cream is sold under one trade name in a high-level market, and then the same product is offered as a cheaper version, for instance under the trade name of a chain.

second edition


Explanation:
A Google search of the word "Zweit-Vermarktung" made it clear that this must be what they are talking about.
Without the whole context it is difficult for me to figure out how you would translate the sentence, but a "Zweit-vermarktung" is a second edition of a certain product going on the market.
