Discuss different strategies which Coca-Cola and Pepsi adopted against each other and their behaviour towards local soft drink producers in Germany, Italy, Japan, France and the UK.
Theoretical Analysis With Coca-Cola and Pepsi being almost identical products, the market they operate in can be considered to be oligopolistic. This means that there are only a small number of large firms that dominate the market. Why is this the case? Well as Coca-Cola and Pepsi both spend vast amounts on advertising, there are certain barriers to entry for new firms. For example Pepsi spent a whopping $1.9bil. on advertising in 1996. Including the fact that both companies have well established links with other companies such as Coca-Cola's ties with McDonalds and Disney, and Pepsi's with KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell (AKA Tricon).

In this assignment we are going to see the segmentation, targeting and positioning of a consumer durable product.
Market Segmentation. Market segmentation is the division of a market into different groups of buyers who might require different products or marketing mixes. It is the division of a heterogeneous market consisting of buyers with different needs and wants, into homogeneous segments of buyers with similar needs and wants. Therefore, the segments are heterogeneous between (i.e. all the segments are different, e.g. one segment all males, one segment all females) themselves, but homogeneous within (e.g. within the male segment, all buyers are male; within the female segment, all buyers are female).

In other words, is the whole still greater than the sum of its parts? Since Frito-Lay is now a ubiquitous, strong brand on its own, there must be some other synergy in the activities of the two businesses.

This essay will describe the particular context in which modern marketing emerged and thrived and how this context has evolved over time.
This was caused by the increased rate of unemployment and the decrease in the amount of disposable income available to consumers (Stoddard, 2007). The problem became more apparent and severe during the Great Depression of the 1930?s when even the consumers who could afford the products did not buy them (Eugene, 2002). Around that time marketing was starting to be recognized as a subject worth academic endeavor (Wilkie and Moore, 2003 cited in Egan, 2008:p6). ?Marketers were proposing that demand consisted of more than just the ability to purchase and that it also required desire on the part of the consumer; and this desire could be increased and manipulated by factors other than the mere existence of supply (Bartels, 1976)

Distinction between e business strategy and e business model and a discussion of their key components.
The e-Business model also plays the part of a planning tool by focusing managements on how all the elements and activities of the business work together as a whole. In essence an e-Business model could be a diagram outlining how the business generates revenue, how cash flows through the business and how the product flows through the business (Directory, 2011). Strategy on the other hand is defined as ?a particular long-term plan for success" (Collins English Dictionary, 1999) so unlike the e business model, strategy focuses more on the steps a company will take in order to ensure long term success.

The founder of Wal-Mart was Sam Walton. This company was created in 1962 in Arkansas. Walton pursued a budget retail strategy from the outset, sourcing from only the cheapest suppliers and locating Wal-Mart stores outside regional centers. Wal-Mart's organizational culture bore the mark of its founder and its rural origins. Wal-Mart praised small-town and (to some degree) Christian values, including loyalty, hard work, conformity, and patriotism, and it maintained a gendered division of labor such that most service-oriented employees were women while most managers and executives were men.

Case study: Red Bull is still the leader in the energy drink market, but some of its market share is starting to be taken away
at a price that is the same or even lower. If Red Bull came out with different flavors and different types of drinks it would broaden the options they have to offer in the energy drink sector and break into other drink sectors. Not only would this help Red Bull to make more money, but also it would minimize risk by having Red Bull diversify itself. For example if the energy drink market were to take a major hit because of government regulations they also be in other markets, so they wouldn?t be hit as hard.

It is in a company?s best advantage to offer products and services that are personalized to each and every one of their customers. In most circumstances this is something that cannot be done. It is imperative that marketers seek out others methods to try and offer products and services; that are personalized for different groups, ages, cultures, social economic statues, or more simply, segments of the market. Last century?s standard of mass media advertising focus is not longer viable in the more unpredictable 21st century markets.

Visit a local retailer and examine two competing products from a single category,What inferences do you draw from the brand names and symbols? Do the brand names accurately characterize each products features and benefits?
The brand symbol for Darlie is a dark-skinned male wearing a top hat. I would infer from both the brand name and symbol that this toothpaste grants the user shiny and glittering teeth resembling an African descent. This is due to the popular misconception about them having whiter teeth due to the colour contrast between their teeth and their dark skin. Primarily due to diminutive functional difference between competing products, companies nowadays emphasises greatly in enhancing brand name as consumers tends to bases product differentiation more on the brand name than the product benefits (del Río, Vázquez, Iglesias 2001, 455).
