HugeMistake: Strange but true: when Coke stops advertising in a locality, consumption drops significantly - something like 30% as I recall. A lot of people actually have to be prompted to drink Coke, or they forget.


Pepsi > Coke

Give them a couple of centuries and they'll be blowing up stars to spell out advertising slogans.

margarito bandito: There were Coke ads on Facebook? Same question for Unilever and PG. I wonder how much of this is actual social stand versus window dressing on expense trimming.

Aluminum can shortage is causing my decreased consumption, not lack of ads. Now give me my Coke Zero.


They should try making cans out of aluminium instead, I hear there's plenty of that.

Why would they advertise on Facebook anyway? Old people drink water and poor people drink Monster Energy.

I remember reading one time that it doesn't matter which company (Pepsi or Coke) runs a ad campaign in an area, both brands sales go up approximately the same during that campaign. Which shows that the ad campaigns don't really change anybodies mind, they just remind people to drink.


Sort of like political ads these days.
