Red Bull Energy Drink
The product chosen by the group was the energy sports drink Red Bull. Initially from first glance the marketing mix of this product was thought customary, however as it will be shown the marketing of Red Bull is anything but standard. Red Bull was founded by Dietrich Mateschitz in Austria in 1984 and is now available in over 80 countries worldwide, including Trinidad and Tobago. With global sales surpassing 1.5 billion cans, its annual revenue exceeds $ 300 million.1Red Bull is a disruptive product that is, a product that eventually overturns the existing dominant technology or product in the market2. It established a new category in the market, finally serving the need for a legal yet hip' stimulant. Its taste is slightly unappealing (it gets a D plus from BevNet4) and was a first in a broader soft drink category to place no importance on taste. It even created an ultra-premium price point (the retail price of a product, usually when viewed as one of a series of possible competitive prices) about 8 times higher than Coke without any third party efficacy endorsement to justify the steep margin.
Red Bull belongs in the marketing hall of fame for its enigmatic miracles as they threw over board conventional marketing wisdom and developed a new powerful go-to-
The promotion of Red Bull throughout Trinidad and Tobago, has contributed to its popularity as an efficient energy drink within the party and working environment. They target mainly young adults (18-30 years old). This is shown by the strong promotion of the product on the University of the West Indies campus.
By offering sponsorships and giveaways the product's popularity and sales has risen. Within this year (2006) alone Red Bull has hosted two competitions on the University of the West Indies campus, one being the Red Bull Paperwings competition (for the longest flying paper airplane) and the Red Bull tricycle race.
It provides sponsorship for numerous parties and social events, where they supply free and discounted Red Bull as a quick energy revitalizer and smooth chaser for alcoholic drinks (vodka or Guinness) using attractive women and sex appeal to encourage sales.
The use of a Volkswagen painted with the product's logo is also a means of public advertisement. Promotional skills were once more displayed when the Red Bull Music Academy occurred in Trinidad on 17th May 2006, giving upcoming Djs and musicians the opportunity to showcase their skills.

In 2003, Palmer Jackson, Inc. created a new line of sports beverage called Green Ox. This beverage has some differences from other similar beverages, as it contains the benefits of antioxidants and it can compete in more than one category, such as sports drinks, vegetable juices, and antioxidant supplements. These are not the only advantages of Green Ox, because some reputable reports argue there is a strong link between using the vitamins and minerals that Green Ox has to reduce the risk of some specific types of cancers, and Green Ox will launch on a type of market that is growing to 15% per year. In order to ensure the success for Green Ox, the company has contracted with Marketing Studies Incorporated (MSI) to study the market and do some important researches. However, Palmer Jackson, Inc. faced one of the challenges that has been common when companies prepare to launch new products on the market. First, the company needed to determine the target audience, especially as we know the large variety of people who deal with this kind of product. Second, the company needed to think thoroughly about how it could position Green Ox with its benefits on consumers’ minds, as Green Ox has the capacity to compete in three different
The ad adheres to psychographic segmentation by matching the lifestyle of the millennial on the go and looking for a convenient fun beer to match their fun-loving lifestyle (Belch, 2015). The Redds Green Apple Ale ad plays off of the common sense technique that is still used today by V8 juices with their slogan “ Should have had a V8” is remarking similar to the apple hitting the protagonist in the head and then them exclaiming “ I will have a Redds Apple Ale”. It is a tried and true technique that is similar to V8 but not entirely obvious.
As stated in the case, “the market for energy drinks was growing; between 2010 and 2012, the market for energy drinks had grown by 40%. It was estimated to be $8.5 billion in the United States in 2013 [and] forecasts projected that figure to reach $13.5 billion by 2018” (pg 5). However, much of this market’s revenue -- 85% in fact -- is dominated by five major brands, while the remaining 15% is split between approximately 30 regional and national companies. (pg. 5). With this saturated market, it might not be best for Crescent Pure to enter as a completely new product to the industry, as there is the possibility that it will be squeezed out of the profit shares by more established brands -- especially if it is not properly secure in its identity. In addition, while the market for energy drinks appeared to be growing at an exponential rate compared to the market for sports drinks -- which increased only 9% in five years and would be at approximately 60% of the rate for energy drinks in 2017 (pg 6) -- the consumers appeared to be wary of partaking in the market for several reasons, which would potentially harm the reach of Crescent Pure. These concerns included rising news reports discussing the safety of energy drinks (pg. 5). Taking into consideration the data provided in the case that concerns reasonings of why consumers choose specific drinks over others, there
