Introduction
The Coca-Cola Company (herein known as Coke) possesses one of the most recognized brands on the planet. It sits firmly atop Business Weeks annual list of top-100 global brands by dollar value ($67.3 billion), beating out the likes of Microsoft, IBM and General Electric.

History
It is through this brand recognition that the company has been able established itself as an icon of Americanism as it spreads its cult image to the rest of the world. Coca-Cola laid the foundation of the beverage industry when it was formed in May 1886 in Atlanta. However it was not until 1895 that the idea of selling coke in bottles was introduced. With the passage of time Coca-Cola gained popularity and its product began to get recognized internationally. Thus from its mere beginning in 1886 Coca-Cola has now been transformed into a strong multinational with its product being currently recognized all over the world. Coca-Cola, in fact, has now become one of the most famous and widely consumed brands in the world. It has not only established its footings in the beverage industry but is currently heading the list of the most financially sound companies in the world. Coca-Cola debuted in Atlanta's largest pharmacy, Jacob's Pharmacy, as a five-cent noncarbonated beverage. Later on, the carbonated water was added to the syrup to make the beverage that we know today as Coca-Cola. In the mid-1970, more than half Coca-Cola sold was outside of the U.S. Coca-Cola products outsell closest competitor by more than two to one. One in every two cola and one in every three soft drinks is a Coca-Cola product. The best-known trademark in the world is sold in about one hundred and forty countries to 5.8 billion people in eighty different languages. This is why Coca-Cola is the largest soft drink company in the world. For more than 65 years, Coca-Cola has been a sponsor of the Olympics. Advertisements for Coca Cola started on the radio in the 1930s and on the television in 1950. Currently Coca-Cola is advertised on over five hundred TV channels around the world.

Coca cola marketing strategies:


The company does not miss any opportunity to associate its brand with mega global celebrations and events. For example in 2010, at FIFA World Cup, Coke launched a new version of Somali-Canadian KNaans Waving Flag song. An event which was according to FIFA, the International Association of Football Association, cumulatively watched by26 billion people (64 matches). That was the largest activation in Cokes history. The song went viral through social media, TV commercials and was linked by the common thread of celebration. Common factors in Coke Branding have always been associated with the feeling of togetherness and joy. The company focuses on events such that connect people mainly by the following means: Happiness, Family, Culture, Sports and Music Since the company philosophy is to meet the level of sophistication of its consumers, Coca Cola has gone viral on social media as well. It has over 35 million fans on facebook (Pepsi with 6 million fans) and has over 405,000 Twitter followers (Pepsi 150,000 followers). According to recent statistics, Coke videos have been viewed over 34 million times. Recently Coca-Cola has pledged to recycle all clear plastic bottles collected at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games into 80 million new Coke bottles within six weeks of the closing ceremony. The company estimates that the recycling plan will account for one-fifth of all consumer waste produced at game venues. Additionally and the company has also introduced a special white Coke can featuring images of polar bears and is touting it on Facebook. All this is fascinating and engaging, that is the Cokes Branding and Marketing Strategy which has embedded Coke in the life of its consumer around the globe!

Reasons for being successful Brand:


There are some effective reasons behind the success of coca-cola as the most recognized brand. These reasons are given below. Achieving Brand Reinvention A key element of Coca-Cola's success can be certainly attributed to its branding strategies. Since 1866 that it started its operations until today that is a powerful, globally known corporation, the company's brand development strategies constantly raise consumer interest and remain highly competitive. Having achieved impressive brand loyalty through continuous reinvention of its brand and focus on brand enhancement, Coca-Cola is, without any doubt, the leading non-alcoholic beverage company in the world. Focusing on Consumer Sophistication Its branding strategies focus on the changing market realities and consumer sophistication that requires different approach and brand redesigning. In the early years, the company focused on making the brand affordable, available and acceptable in the aim of establishing a brand that would be instantly recognizable and highly appreciated in consumers' minds. Over the years, and in an effort to adjust its branding strategies to the new consumer demands, Coca-Cola focused on building brand identity by offering value for price, differentiation to meet consumer preferences (preference), and pervasive penetration. Evaluating Consumer Response Besides, the company constantly assesses consumer response to its brands in order to evaluate consumer perception and find out what consumers believe about its products. Consumers relate particular brands with particular symbols and promises that need to be met. Similarly, Coca-Cola is related to a particular level of customer satisfaction that is determined by the collective memory of its target audience.

21 | P a g e

Achieving Strategic Consensus Another important aspect of Coca-Cola's branding strategies is the fact that strong brands make great sales and increase their revenues. However, Coca-Cola has taken the extra mile by building a brand that has managed to increase sustainable sales by attracting and retaining the best human capital and investing in employee relations and customer relation management. This has enabled the corporation not only to achieve strategic consensus and alignment at all organizational levels, but also to trigger positive feelings in consumers' minds. Building Brand Loyalty Finally, strong brand image is related to brand loyalty. The more consumer demands are satisfied, the more consumers are attached to a brand and retained by default. Also, Coca-Cola's brand image entails the purchase frequency that is boosted by effective advertising campaigns and marketing strategies. In doing so, the corporation expands its customer base and enhances customer loyalty by meeting customer needs and raising customer satisfaction.

Global beverage giant Coca-Cola will open its first plant in Bangladesh to tap growing demand for carbonated soft drink, a top local investment official has said.

"The company has already registered with the Board of Investment to invest about $50 million by 2013," BoI executive chairman SA Samad told bdnews24.com.

Coke's bottling operations will bring in Tk 3.76 billion foreign equity and manage another Tk 375 million working capital locally, according to information it provided to the investment board.

The Atlanta-based soft-drink behemoth has set its sight on starting commercial operation by Sept 2013 at a plant in Tongi where it will produce Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fanta, juice and juice-based drink, and packaged drinking water. Coca-Cola started business in Bangladesh with an agreement with Tabani Beverage, owned by a Pakistani national, in 1965. After independence, Tabani was put under the Freedom Fighters' Welfare Trust and it continued its business up to 2008.

The multinational company used to sell Tabani the liquid concentrate of its brands and Tabani produced cold drinks and marketed them. The global giant asked Tabani to scale up its capacity in 1978 which it failed to do. Coke then signed another agreement with Abdul Monem Group to produce the cold drinks.

25 | P a g e

In conclusion, Coca-Cola is a successful product, not only because it has built a recognizable logo and brand name, but mostly because it has managed to position its brand in a way that takes advantage of all the elements of marketing mix, i.e. product, place price and promotion/distribution. In doing so, it achieves to develop a brand personality and distinguish itself from competition, while offering consumers a clear view of its brand values. This leads to increased brand loyalty and satisfaction.

With over 3000 products in more than 200 countries, the Coca-Cola Company has surely become part of peoples lives. The Coca-Cola Company owes its success to the people who do their best to achieve the task at hand.
