Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi: The Mega Showdown Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi: The Mega Showdown Some people like Coca-Cola while others prefer Pepsi. Just like Apple and Microsoft, there are two camps and a “battle” going on about who enjoys the best drink. We have seen many faces of them both throughout the years, and I predict that it’s not about to stop anytime soon. I myself enjoyed a cold Coke on a daily basis at one point in my life, but the backstabber was the sugar, and I had to stop it entirely.

I remember a time when truncating the UPC bar code on the cover of a magazine was a huge coup. Taking the huge, lumbering code, which took up too much real estate on the cover of a publication, was bothersome and affected the design space. Cutting the bar code by half, in height and width, was celebrated as a major advance in the much-needed item used for scanning the price by, at best, only half the retailers, seems so petty and foolish now. When printers discovered you didn’t need to place the codes on white boxes, we rejoiced at not having the little lines popping out on what were beautiful covers, interrupted by alien chunks of absurdity. Again, it seems odd no one had discovered this fact for all the years bar codes had been used. When we discovered that we could play with the bar codes, making fun little designs and jokes; we wondered why something so simple had escaped us for so long. SnapTags: Will they kill QR codes?

Coca-Cola loses faith in TV commercials Coca-Cola loses faith in TV commercials Coca-Cola's (KO +1.01%) first commercial was produced in conjunction with a television special featuring ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his dummy Charlie McCarthy. It ran on Thanksgiving Day 1950. These days, the No. 1 soda maker is much less enthusiastic about 30-second spots. "With ad-skipping rampant, the company has lost faith in the effectiveness of traditional ads in comedies and dramas, save for the Super Bowl, 'American Idol' and other programming that consumers watch live and talk about the next day around the Coke machine," according to MediaPost. Coca-Cola isn't abandoning the boob tube entirely. It is planning a major Olympics push this summer, but the company believes that a traditional 30-second spot can no longer stand alone.
Coca-Cola holds top spot, but category keeps losing market share   U.S. soft drink sales fell for the seventh consecutive year in 2011 as consumers increasingly switched to energy drinks, water and teas, according to a new report. While the nation's bestselling beverages remained No. 1 Coca-Cola, No. 2 Diet Coke and No. 3 Pepsi, volume for the carbonated drinks segment was down 1 percent in 2011, according to Beverage Digest's annual look at the industry's performance. That follows a 0.5 percent drop in 2010 and puts industry volume -- about 9.3 billion of 192-ounce cases -- at 1996 sales levels. Non-carbonated drinks, however, saw strong growth.

Agency Survey: Early 2012 Social Dollars Boom Christopher Heine | March 27, 2012 | 0 Comments inShare106 Seven out of eight ad agencies stated their clients' social media spends either doubled or were "up significantly" in January when compared to the same month in 2011. And brands this year have been - not surprisingly - more dialed into Facebook than Twitter, according to a survey orchestrated by ClickZ News.
Coca-Cola Earnings Decline; More Dollars to Go Toward Marketing Coca-Cola Co. is ratcheting up the pressure on PepsiCo Inc. and other beverage companies with plans to plow up to $650 million in new, annual cost savings back into supporting growth for its brands, which continued to grow sales and volume in the fourth quarter that saw actual earnings fall due to a gain last year.
