utilities. particularly Coca-Cola. which affects the sale of coke.So the decreasing per capita income effects badly in selling and production of this soft drink. • • • Per capita income Competitors Weather
Per Capita Income
First we will discuss about “ Per capita income”.
Coke’s commercials basically based on young generations. and education and basic necessities and after that when they get extra money they think about this soft drink . then we successfully nurture and protect our brands. value. solid and timeless.
FACTORS EFFECTING SALES
There are so many factors. their basic segments are those people who take this drink regularly. Because which every passing year budgets are becoming very strict and tight in order to purchase things. They spend heavily on rents. the young generation is the target market of Coke 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. 25
. 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. So the disposable incomes of the people are coming down. When we bring refreshment. That is the key to fulfilling our ultimate obligation to provide consistently attractive returns to the owners of our business.PROMISE OF COKE
The basic proposition of our business is simple.
Major segments are basically those people who take this drink daily and those areas where the demands is higher then the other areas. Here we are discussing three major factors which effects coke. joy and fun to our stakeholders. This is major factor that affects the sale of this soft drink. So.
they don’t care before drinking that whether it is “Pepsi” or “coke”. Consumers basically drink what they get.
Coke’s major competitor is “PEPSI” and there is no hesitation to say this because every one knows that and all the other cold drinks and water. if not then they immediately change or repair it. coffee. They have maximum number of coolers and freezers in the market. In other words. tea are the competitors. Their salesman and mechanics regularly visit all the shops where coke has its infrastructure to check that either it is in proper condition or not. This is underdeveloped market so the coke’s consumption in summers is 60% and in winters is 40%. which they want to be purchase. They don’t actually differentiate between these two brands in order to their tastes.And to get through with this difficulty there is need to increase the level of per capita income of Pakistan because it is much lesser than the rest of the countries. For this reason Coca-Cola have provided their coolers and freezers in the market. They believe on “WHAT COLD THEY SOLD” Consumer’s availability in brands is basically works like: Push availability Pull consumer’s demand. They provide this infrastructure free of cost just to provide child coke to their customer.
MAJOR CUSTOMERS NEED
First of all the majority don’t care that what they are going to have.
Weather is the third major factor in effecting the Coke’s selling.
And when price goes down they think that there is must be some thing wrong in it.e. Enhance competition moments 2. In short it all depends on customer’s perception.
STRATEGIES OF QUALITY
After Micro and macro analysis Brand “coke” is primarily role 1. and all juices. There are three major ways of making money • • • Over night profit Windfall profit Ethical and un-ethical ways
THREATS FROM COMPETITORS
Threats are well planned. new coming AMRAT Cola. Like they compete Coke with Pepsi and Sprite with 7up and team . When they motivate to any other brand or on Coke it’s in instinct basically that based on messages derive certain feelings.MAJOR COMPETITORS
Consumers firstly decide that they are going to have a soft drink. When price goes certain beyond the exact price whether come down or go higher its effects the consumption of soft drink. But Coca Cola thinks in a different way. even they take water and tea as their competitors.So the major competitor of Coke is Pepsi. These are the “key consumption”.
TARGETS THAT WOULD LIKE TO ATTAIN
Every organization runs on the bases of profit maximization so Coke is also looking for a high profit margin. Price is the major threat. When people watch cricket 3. they believe that RC Cola. Pepsi. Through commercialization 4. Because when the price go higher people go for the substitute of “coke” i. Fun time Though these strategies there could be better understanding and better connection with the public. Then they compete brands with each other.
They believe on this quote “ Every thing is fare in love and war”. When the consumption the consumption is on boom. though coke is the 2nd best name but it can get a better position after some time
Attractive Brand Name
Now the consumers know the Name of Coke. which is the most popular after the word “ok”. And they can also get profit through different approaches. So. • • • Consumer has choice Attractive brand name Brand differentiating
Consumer Has Got Choice
Now the consumer has got choice. This could be got my increasing sales volume
Can be windfall profit. So people can better differentiate brands with each other. Some profits stays for some time like “over night profits” and some just come and go like “wind fall profits”. Two major brands “coke” and “Pepsi” also have brand names. people can distinguish between brands. So. They are the extras profit.Over Night Profits
They could be over night profit that is for the number 1 brand for the year.
Now different companies have got different brand names. Because now they know the name of another big brand.
EXPANDING TARGET MARKET
In last 2 years Coke has come back in aggressive manner. because Coke is the name.
Ethical And Unethical Ways
Profit can also get through ethical and unethical ways. 28
. there is different kind of profits.
Because they believe in the togetherness. Then there is the tax rate system 15% . These are the opportunities through which we can increase the price and can get profits. They have the best substitute of Coke that is Pepsi.In making Budget After paying all these taxes coke has to pay electricity charges. Because same problem of substitute. Coca Cola strongly believes that Pakistani temperament is “US” not “ME”
Pepsi’s brand is basically is basically “ME” branded. Then people definitely won’t go for coke.Coca Cola’s Brand
Coca cola is “US” brand.
There are much more threats in increasing prices. Coke will lose the margin of its profit and can face loss.
. being people together and friends are being together. In contrast to Coke they believe on individual struggle. If Coke increase the price lets say 1 rupee. After paying all these expenses Coke’s margin squeezed and consumers have to pay for increasing tariffs.goes to government 03% .
THREATS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRICE
If Coke is considered a luxury product.excise duty 27% . They use the temperament of “ME”. So these are the threats in increasing prices. We have to spend on distributions.sales tax 20% .
this is one of the product of coke. Through advertisements.
Our local marketing strategy enables Coke to listen to all the voices around the world asking for beverages that span the entire spectrum of tastes and occasions.E. 30
. offering different interesting things to attract people towards this product. And this year in this year 2002 people were anxiously waiting that what interesting thing coke is going to offer. how they work and play. we're there for you.
