Key Success Factors
Success depends on the amount of brand loyalty and the amount of advertising. The more a company advertises the more revenue it receives. It works in a cyclical process and each is dependent on the other. New products need large amounts of promotion so that the public is informed about the product. Market share gained by one competitor is given up by another.
Cost Position of Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola products sell at a premium compared to other soft drinks. Although the premium is marginal in the eyes of consumers, it makes a large difference from a corporate standpoint. It is rumored that Coke products will increase in the near future due to rising commodity costs, like corn, because Coke uses high-fructose corn syrup as a sweetner.
