Points of Parity
Points of Difference
Brand Mantra
Suitable for any active lifestyle.
Do not define what an extreme lifestyle actually is.
In doing so, they have ultimately become more than a brand, they are a lifestyle.
A brand mantra that captures these ideas may be,
“Inspires Greatness, Fuels Adventure.”
Leverage the Company's Independent
Legacy and Concentration
Connect with the Female Consumer
Attack the Oversaturation in the Industry
Use Marketing to Reach Older Consumers
The creative strategies within their advertising and marketing should incorporate illustrations of this successful bond.

It can be executed by releasing incentives (products) in competitions and/or holding events that reward their loyal consumers.
They have an extensive line of distribution, compelling marketing capabilities, and relatively low labor costs.
Red Bull should promote the fact that they are the
of the energy drink industry.

Due to the fact that they are approaching their 30 year anniversary, this positioning should resonate well with consumers.
Endorsements of athletes in traditionally male-dominated sports. This is a perfect opportunity to transition its primarily masculine marketing/advertising.
Red Bull should update its ambassador list to incorporate more women.
Use these women ambassadors in international marketing/advertising efforts

Red Bull is highest price energy drink on the market
Red Bull uses television, social media, and internet to get the message across.
4 pack 8oz $8.00
12oz $3.00
16oz $3.70
Red Bull needs to continue distinguishing itself from the competition; remaining number one.
Need to constantly create and execute large scale attractions within their experiential marketing.
