Promotional Mix Elements
The Future of Red Bull
Giving Wings to People and Ideas
No Red Bull. No Wings.
Concentrates on effects instead of tastes
This unique promotional theme has been constant throughout their years of visual advertising
PR Effort Towards Rumors
Red Bull does engage in some PR efforts
Ex.) Sponsorships, and special events
Red Bull has embodied the rumors and has utilized them for grassroots marketing
The CEO believes these rumors are one of the most important promotional techniques the company has employed
"The most dangerous thing for a branded product is low interest"
The goal is to "have the brand hit young people right in the face in a way that they experience Red Bull to the fullest"
