Price:

Price is a very important part of the marketing mix as it can affect both the
supply and demand for Coca Cola. The price of Coca Colas products is one of
the most important factors in a customers decision to buy. Price will often be
the difference that will push a customer to buy
Our product over another, as long as most things are fairly similar. For this
reason pricing policies need to be designed with consumers and external
influences in mind, in order to effectively achieve a stable balance between
sales and covering the production costs. Price strategies are important to Coca
Cola because the price determines the amount of sales and profit per unit sold.
Businesses have to set a price that is attractive to their customers and provides
the business with a good level of profit. Long before a sale was ever made
Coca Cola had developed a forecast of consumer demand at different prices
which inevitably determined whether or not the product came on the market, as
well as the allocation of adequate money and resources to produce promote
and distribute the product.
The basis for Coca Colas pricing strategy is pre-existing industry benchmarks.
This would entail glass bottles retailing for 20rs with the condition of return upon
use. As far as targeting of green consumers is concerned, there would be a
10rs markup on the 500ml bottle as production of environmentally friendly
plastic bottles incurs value-added costs
Undoubtedly, inflated prices are a detriment to the overall sales volume of Coca
cola; however, through an intense and carefully channeled marketing message,
the price of the bottle will be compensate

Place:

Selecting the most appropriate distribution channel is important, as the choice


will determine sales levels and costs Coca Cola Company has the distinct
privilege of boasting a highly sophisticated, world-renowned supply chain
system established over decades. It is significant to note that Coca Cola has
come to achieve such an incredibly well-integrated operations system through
constant major restructuring, as well as the more subtle tweaks required to
create an almost self-sufficient producing machine.
The choice for a distribution channel for any business depends on numerous
factors, these include:

How far away the customers are;


The type of product being transported;
The lead times required; and;
The costs associated with transport

There are four types of distribution strategies that Coca Cola could have chosen
from, these are: intensive, selective, exclusive and direct distribution. It is
apparent from the popularity of the

Coca Colas product on the market that the business in the past used the
method of intensive distribution as the product is available at every possible
outlet. From supermarkets to service stations to your local corner shop,
anywhere you go you will find the Coca Cola products

Promotion:

In todays competitive environment, having the right product at the right place in
the right place at the right time may still not be enough to be successful.
Effective communication with the target market is essential for the success of
the product and business. Promotion is the p of the marketing mix designed to
inform the marketplace about who you are, how good your product is and where
they can buy it. Promotion is also used to persuade the customers to try a new
product, or buy more of an old product

The promotional mix is the combination of personal selling, advertising, sales


promotion and public relations that it uses in its marketing plan. Above the line
promotions refers to mainstream media: Advertising through common media
such as television, radio, transport, and billboards and in newspapers and
magazines. Because most of the target is most likely to be exposed to media
such as television, radio and magazines, Coca Cola has used this as the main
form of promotion for extensive range of products. Although advertising is
usually very expensive, it is the most effective way of reminding and exposing
potential customers to Coca Cola Products. Coca Cola also utilizes below the
line promotions such as contests, coupons, and free samples. These activities
are an effective way of getting people to try your product
