Similarities & Differences
Our opinion
Red Bull
Monster Energy
Who did it better?
More effective, even at a higher price
Has always been #1, doesn't plan on moving
Use of ADS
Improving our choice: Red Bull
Offer more drink for your buck
While they still remain #1, Monster Energy experienced a 22% growth in 2012, so they should lower prices to maintain dominance over Monster
Maintain its unique marketing

Rodney Shacks and Hilton Schlosberg came to America in 1989
Bought a juice company called Hansen in LA in 1992 for $14.6 million

"We needed to create something different," says Shacks
The Struggle

Sold enough to have it stand alone in 1997 (same year Red Bull hit America)
Started to lose target market
