...Coca-Cola's advertising has significantly affected not only American culture but also everyone who see these advertisements. It is very significant for a company to share their emotions with one slogan. Coca cola changes slogan usually after ten years. Now their slogan is “Open Happiness” and they try to say that coca cola is for everyone and when you drink it you can open a window in happiness because coca cola makes you happy. “Coca-cola” is the most recognized word on the planet after “ok”. Coca cola’s major segments are basically those people who take this drink daily and those areas where the demands is higher than the other areas. There are so many people who take this drink daily and those people who take weekly and those who take less often are always there as well. So, their basic segments are those people who take this drink regularly. Coca cola takes every customer a target and potential who is thirsty. All age groups are being targeted but the most potential is young generation because they want to represent Coke with the youth and energy but they also consider about the old people they take then as a co-target market. Their targeting is not based on gender but the results show that both genders like this product and use it. Coca cola serves its product using mass marketing technique, which obviously falls in undifferentiated marketing and undifferentiated marketing means no segmentation, but there are minor factors on which we can say that the coke......

...Product Project Product: Coca-Cola Classic is a type of soft drink manufactured by The Coca-Cola Company that is recognize in the entire world. United State is the country of the origin of the company that was introduced in 1886. The recipe was formulated at the Eagle Drug and Chemical Company, a drugstore in Columbus, Georgia by John Pemberton, originally as a coca wine called Pemberton's French Wine Coca. He may have been inspired by the formidable success of Vin Mariani, a European coca wine. Pemberton responded by developing Coca-Cola, essentially a non-alcoholic version of French Wine Coca. The first sales were at Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. It was initially sold as a patent medicine for five cents a glass at soda fountains, which were popular in the United States at the time due to the belief that carbonated water was good for the health. Pemberton ran the first advertisement for the beverage on May 29 of the same year in the Atlanta Journal. Coca-Cola was sold in bottles for the first time on March 12, 1894. The first outdoors wall advertisement was painted in the same year as well in Cartersville, Georgia. Cans of Coke first appeared in 1955 and the first bottling of Coca-Cola occurred in Vicksburg, Mississippi, at the Biedenharn Candy Company in 1891.

... product line and brand. Data collection and analysis is essential in new product development. Quantitative market research focuses on numerical information and key performance indicators (KPIs) and data such as market share, demographic targeting (Pump is primarily consumed by 20-30 year-olds) and sales growth (sales of Pump waters grew 35 percent in the first quarter of 2007). Qualitative market research relies on feedback through focus groups, new product testing and trials and web-based feedback. Research and development in the bottled water market has seen the emergence of enhanced waters, which are based on adding natural flavours and/or vitamins and minerals to still water to enhance hydration. Enhanced waters are positioned somewhere between sports-drinks (which are primarily male-orientated) and still waters. It's only natural that an organisation such as Coca-Cola has tapped into the needs of this growing wellbeing market, with water that has enhanced flavour. Coca-Cola's Pump is positioned for the modern, active consumer. Its convenient squeezy bottle makes it an ideal choice for on-the-go hydration. CONCLUSION: One of the most consistent growth segments in the non-alcoholic beverage market is bottled water. This growth is particularly evident among women under 40 and with younger, 'urban' consumers. The potential for further growth in the market has extended to enhanced waters and other health and wellbeing products. Australia lags behind most of the......

...Coca-Cola’s market value is currently one hundred and forty billion while PepsiCo’s market value is ninety billion, however price per share fluctuate to be in range of mid-fifties “$52-$57” for both companies. Coke is dominant company of the soft drink industry and boasts a global market share of around 44%, followed by PepsiCo at about 31%, and Cadbury Schweppes at 14.7%. Separately from smaller companies such as Cott Corporation and Royal Crown. Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are the biggest pieces of this market. Both struggled for over a century to conquer the number 1 position in the market, competing fiercely in last few years and following each one's strategic decisions to stay ahead. There are number of companies that attempt to enter soft drinks market on frequent basis, any company that can’t maintain comparative advantage over other companies usually falls back and does not survive in this industry. Potential to sell “Fruit Drinks, Water and Energy Drinks” is showing significant growth due to popularity as well as demand for beverages that is consistently getting larger. There are also number of segments that are now consistently being reached that couldn’t have been reached earlier, traditional distribution channels that were put in place decades ago couldn’t reach certain segments due to high poverty level in certain areas as well as low progress of technological improvement in many communities. Another significant factor was lack of trust among most that resided in...

... important business allies. An example of an anchor bottler is Coca Cola Enterprises (hereafter referred as Enterprises). This corporation is responsible, today, for the production and distribution of Coca-Cola’s products throughout all western and northern Europe. Enterprises is, itself, a union of many independent bottling groups, which have been acquired since the early 80’s. The goal of this case study is to analyze the consolidation of Coca-Cola with its bottling subsidiaries, namely Enterprises. The Equity Accounting Method This method is applied when a shareholder has significant interest on a company but fails to meet the minimum 50% for a majority – the owned business is referred as an associate company or a joint venture. Each year, the parent company reports in its statement of financial position an update on its equity, regarding any profit or loss it is entitled to, proportional to its investment on the associate. Consolidation Analysis – Should Coca-Cola follow a full consolidation? If The Coca-Cola Company was the major shareholder of Enterprises, with more than 50% ownership, the answer would be quite straightforward: enterprises should be fully consolidated, as Coca-Cola effectively controls and represents Enterprises. Page | 1 What happens is that by March 1999, Coca-Cola only owned 40% of its subsidiary’s business, questioning the choice of following a full consolidation, rather than an equity accounting method. In order to solidify our choice,......

...COCA COLA The last eighteen months have been good for Coca-Cola – in the creative and branding awards. It has won the design Grand Prix at Cannes, two D&AD Yellow Pencils for design and advertising, plus the 2009 Emmy for an Outstanding Commercial. Most recently, it has been recognised, once again, as the top performer in Best Global Brands 2009, the annual report from brand consultancy Interbrand. As the world’s most valuable brand, Coke comes in at $68,734 million, some three per cent higher than a year ago. This is no mean feat in a year when the global credit crunch and recession hit the brand, leading consumers to cut back on almost every area of spending – including eating and drinking out. Coke has held its pole position for ten years, staying ahead of other famous brands such as Toyota, Disney, McDonalds, Marlboro and Intel. Quite simply, there is no other brand like it. The report credits Coke’s success as being due in part to, “its edgy campaigns that continue to push boundaries.” In particular, it notes the current, ‘Open Happiness’ campaign that is targeted at consumers, “longing for comfort and optimism in a tough time.” “We’re enormously proud of winning these awards,” says Pio Schunker, senior vice president for Creative Excellence, Coca-Cola, North America. “They are testament to the power of creativity and how it can reiterate Coke’s position as a leadership brand at every touch point with consumer – from advertising and packaging, to...

...Skimming involves goods being sold at higher prices so that fewer sales are needed to break even. By selling a product at a high price, sacrificing high sales to gain a high profit is therefore "skimming" the market. Skimming involves goods being sold at higher prices so that fewer sales are needed to break even. Selling a product at a high price and sacrificing high sales to gain a high profit is therefore "skimming" the market. Skimming is usually employed to reimburse the cost of investment of the original research into the product. It is commonly used in electronic markets when a new range, such as DVD players, are firstly dispatched into the market at a high price. This strategy is often used to target "early adopters" of a product or service. Early adopters generally have a relatively lower price-sensitivity and this can be attributed to their need for the product outweighing their need to economize, a greater understanding of the product's value, or simply having a higher disposable income. This strategy is employed only for a limited duration to recover most of the investment made to build the product. To gain further market share, a seller must use other pricing tactics such as economy or penetration. This method can have some setbacks as it could leave the product at a high price against the competition. A skimming strategy would generally be supported by the following conditions: The first thing that the Coca-Cola company must do is select the pricing...

...Coca-Cola: A journey over 120 years old 04 Feb 2009 By Sarimul Islam Choudhury  ‘Little drops of joy’ as they call it, soft drink and beverages brand Coca-Cola came into existence in 1886 in Atlanta, New York, USA. From selling only nine glasses of drinks a day initially, after a successful stint of operation for over 120 years, the company currently produces more than 10 billion gallons of drink a day and sells its products across 200 countries worldwide. With more than 450 brands, the company is one of the largest beverage companies in the world keeping the language of refreshment universal across the globe.  The product comes into existence: It was1886 in New York Harbor when the construction of the Statue of Liberty was in progress, John Pemberton, a pharmacist in Atlanta, was intrigued by a fragrant caramel-coloured liquid. He carried it a few doors down to Jacobs' Pharmacy where the mixture was combined with carbonated water and sampled by customers who all agreed — that this new drink was something special. Jacobs' Pharmacy then put it on sale for five cents a glass. Later, Pemberton's bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, named the mixture Coca-Cola and wrote it out in a distinct script, the same way it is in use these days. According to the company: “Quality is more than what we taste or see or measure. It shows in our every action. We relentlessly strive to exceed the world's ever-changing expectations because keeping our quality promise in the marketplace is our...
