Surveys show around three out of four college students in Europe and the US regularly indulge in such combinations.
But the role played by energy drinks is under-researched and much of the work has only studied the effects of mixing low levels of alcohol with a single energy drink, said Prof Miller, associate professor of psychology at Deakin University in Australia.
What is Red Bull’s success formula?
For which kind of product/ beverage categories will this formula work? How does Red Bull know when to turn on the advertising? What metrics would you use to make this judgment?
These formula will work for other energy drinks. If modified, it may work for Coca Cola drinks also.
When the customers get interested in a particular sport, Red Bull turns on its advertising.
This is some time before the matches actually begin. The metrics we would use to judge the efficency of advertising would be

If you were an investor in Red Bull, would you take your money and run or stay for the long haul

innovations in promotion

Furthermore, Red Bull should

Red Bull was a
market leader in its category in the early 2000s
, garnering strong sales in its various markets around the world. Nevertheless, analysts were sceptical about the company's continued survival and growth as there were several factors threatening the brand's long term prospects.
success had spawned a spate of imitators
, all wanting to cash in on the booming energy drinks market. Some of the knock-offs even had names that evoked the Red Bull brand -Red Tiger and American Bull being notable examples
The US itself saw the launch of brands like Red Devil, NRG, Eclipse, Blue Ox, Niagara, Dynamite, Red Rooster, Energy Rush, SoBe Adrenaline Rush, Mad Croc, Hansen's Functional, and Jones Whoop Azz, among others, in the energy drinks market during the early 2000s. Overall, it was estimated that as of 2005, there were
125 players in the energy drinks market in the US
Major beverage companies like
Coke, Pepsi and beer major Anheuser-Busch
had also come out with new energy drinks
Coke and Pepsi launched KMX and AMP respectively, while Anheuser-Busch launched 180, in the early 2000s. Analysts said that competition from big companies might affect Red Bull, as these companies, with their
greater spending power, had the potential to give the brand a run for its money
. "Strategically, Red Bull could be vulnerable to such giants as Coca-Cola and Pepsi, which can't sit back and simply do nothing," said John Hudson, coordinator of the graduate business school at the University of Palermo. "They could wind up competing in the same segment.
Red Bull's competitors can come out with their own energy drinks but these have to be labeled differently.
For instance, if the new drink is associated with Coke or Pepsi or Anheuser-Busch then customers may not like it.
The drink became a
very popular mixer, especially with vodka

appearing first in trendy on-premise locations, hip nightspots , sponsored sports competitions and athletes and Music Academy.
