Life's Better ithout ings: Red Bull and the Allure of Advertising
It is difficult to imagine walking into a convenience store, gas station shop, or other such establishment without being almost immediately confronted by a refrigerator case full of the aluminum cans and colorful tabs of the many different brands of "energy drinks." These drinks, with such brand names as Monster and Rock Star, purport to give a jolt of energy to the system, presumably allowing one to have "monster" levels of energy or act like a "rock star" no matter how tired they were moments earlier. One of the earliest entrants in this market of energy drinks, and indeed the brand credited as starting the entire "energy drink" industry, is Red Bull, a product and company that has had enormous and still-growing success over the past two decades. ith such strong popularity, it is hard to believe that people….

In this line of thoughts then, it is crucial for ed Bull to diversify its product offering from other items available on the market.
7. Managerial Implications
The managerial team at ed Bull GmbH has to supervise the entire process of manufacturing and selling of the new candies. In this order of ideas, they must first conduct a market analysis assessing the need and consumer perceptions relative to the introduction of a new energy candy. Given that the study reveals satisfactory results, the managers will carefully review the ingredients to be used in the making of the candy. Using natural ingredients will be a plus in the later development of a differentiation strategy. Once the product is manufactured, details such as packaging or the slogan will be addressed.
The next step is that of signing contracts with intermediaries that will be in charge of distributing the candy and representing the company's liaison….

They will want to try this product, and they will want to experience themselves the effects and the consumption process of the energy candy.
Consumers' behavior shows us how they intend to respond to the product. Basically, they can reject it, approve it, or be indifferent to it. Their behavior in the case of the energy candy will probably be similar to their behavior in the case of energy drinks in general, given the similar effects of these products. Energy products are rarely rejected by certain categories of customers. Most consumers that are characterized by the problems solved by energy products encourage them.
Consumers' cognition reveals what they believe about the product in case. Consumers will have at least a minimum of information to base their decision on before buying the energy candy. In this case, information about the product is very easy to be obtained. Just by asking their friends….

b) Although the product appears to fill a need and has good commercial prospects, the feasibility is subject to some limitations. One is the effectiveness of the product. The candy format is less effective in terms of the caffeine/herbal stimulant integration, such that the product may not be as effective as liquid Red Bull. We are concerned that by offering the candy in pieces with 50% of the caffeine as a can of Red Bull, the perception of the product's effectiveness may be compromised. There are also some potential limitations with fitting Red Bull Candy into our existing distribution systems. Distribution of beverages and dry goods to retailers is not typically done by the same company, or at least the same trucks. We may run into logistical issues with respect to placing the candies on the trucks. Thus, there are some logistical issues that need to be worked out, lest….

Deconstructing ed Bull's Empire
ed Bull has a couple of distinct advantages as more companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Monster enter the energy drink category. Firstly, ed Bull knows its audience well and has built a solid reputation among the young people that have helped pioneer the popularity of this beverage. Additionally, ed Bull has cultivated a significant social standing with its audience, to the point where there are certain social situations and settings in which the consumption of this beverage is deemed appropriate -- particularly as they relate to the perceived need for energy, excitement, youthful behavior, etc. Also, ed Bull's marketing approach is unique and difficult for others who are less familiar with the energy drink market to duplicate. The potential risks that ed Bull will likely encounter pertain to its position atop the energy drink market. The aforementioned newcomers will probably attempt to duplicate most aspects of ed….
Strategy and Globalization of ed Bull
ed Bull is a global leader in an energy drink and operating in more than 167 countries. The company has been able to dominate the energy drink markets because it focuses on the emerging markets. Over the years, ed Bull has taken the advantages of rapid economic growth of emerging markets in Asia and Latin America to promote its brands and reap the superior market shares. The sporting events have been the major strategy that the company has employed to enjoy market advantages globally. For example, ed Bull uses unconventional marketing techniques that include guerilla marketing, stunt events, Street Luge acing, Mountainbike competition, and Motocross Freestyle to promote its brand globally.
ed Bull is an Austria multinational energy drink producing company operating in 167 countries. In 2014, the Energy Bull sold over 5.6 billion cans and employs more than 10,410 employees compared to 9,694 in 2013.….

ed Bull's greatest strengths and risks as more companies (like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Monster) enter the energy drink category and gain market share?
ed Bull's greatest strengths are its originality, "rebellious" image, and its linking of its brand name with extreme sports and the "alternative" youth movement. Its originality is a big factor in its success as it has been seen as something different from the major corporate sponsors of bigger events like MLB or NFL (Pepsi or Coke). It has a unique take on the beverage industry (since it hails from Europe, it traditionally serves its consumers in 250 ml silver cans as opposed to the more American size 12 oz can). Its slim, sleek packaging also makes it look sophisticated at the same time that it appeals to a market that is excited by pushing life to the limits. So it is original in the sense that it….
ecause "drugs of abuse change the brain, hijack its motivational systems and even change how its genes function," withdrawal can seem unbearable. egley purports that changes evolving from use of addictive drugs continue long after a person stops using.
Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAW, 1), sobriety-based symptoms, make sobriety challenging. Research documents that in 75-95% of recovering alcoholics tested, the presence of brain dysfunction. PAW, a bio-psycho-social syndrome, evolves from by alcohol or drugs damage to an addicted person's nervous system, along with the psycho-social stress of coping with life without using drugs or alcohol. Two things contribute to the severity of PAW:
The severity of the brain dysfunction caused by the addiction and the amount of psycho-social stress experienced in recovery. (PAW, 1)
Symptoms of PAW
Inability to think clearly Memory problems
Emotional overreactions or numbness
Physical coordination problems

The author or this report is to identify three best practices relative to a social media strategy that can and should be implemented by ed Bull GmbH. The overall strategic approach, the implementation of the strategy and the expected results of that strategy will be covered for all three examples provided.

The strategic group map for the energy/sports drink category should focus along the axes of energy and sport. An energy drink is basically a caffeine/sugar bomb, intended to provide a burst of energy and alertness. A sports drink tends to also have a lot of sugar, but not necessarily caffeine, and instead will have salt as a means of boosting electrolytes. Thus, the two categories can be quite a bit different from one another, but can also have some overlap. My strategic group map looks at how the industry is structured along these two axes (Ketchen & Short, 2014).
A drink that has no caffeine but focused on electrolytes and sugar would be viewed as a sport drink, in the upper right quadrant. Examples would be Gatorade, Powerade, and numerous other knockoffs thereof. In the lower left quadrant are the energy drinks that include the likes of Monster and ed….

Internet Has Changed the Practice of Public Relationships
The objective of this study is to examine how the Internet has changed the practice of public relationships.
The Internet is reported to have made it "easier to find media contacts and form relationships with journalists, but more importantly the rise of social media and online PR has meant by passing the media and going directly to your audience." (Thaeler, 2012) Online PR is reported by Thaeler to have "changed the PR industry" and according to Thaeler "it's not going back." (2012)
