is difficult to measure because much of it depends on consumers' perception
and opinions of a brand. When a product has high brand equity they are
successful after training their current customers by keeping them satisfied
with the quality of products and service. They are also successful at
attracting new customers who have heard of the brand through successful
marketing or word of mouth.Coca-Cola's brand equity is difficult to measure
because they have extended their brand to include numerous products. In
addition to the numerous of versions of Coca-Cola world wide that compete
against other beverage brands, Coca-Cola competes with itself.
Nationally there are numerous versions / brands that are a part of the Coca-Cola family.
Some of the brands include Coca-Cola Classic, Dasani Water, Full Throttle, Fanta, and
Soy Products. In addition to competing against itself the Coca-Cola Company has
saturated the market and consumers who may dislike one product may actually enjoy a
different Coca-Cola product. However, the consumer may be unaware that the beverage
is actually in the Coca-Cola family. As a result measuring brand equity may be difficult
as consumers may be loyal and repeat customers of a brand and not know its origin.
Coca Cola was taking its core product, Coke, and expanding the product in new form
factors and new overseas markets. The brand promise stayed the same whether it was
sold in a Coke store in New York or a road side stand in Mongolia -refreshment, good
times, and pure Americana.
the brand identity is the audio-visual 'face' of the brand - the cues that tell you that you
are are inthe right place. The brand definition is the formal description of what the brand
stands for within differentdescription categories - its personality, its values, its stories,
its emotional benefits etc.. The brandproposition is the 'deal' the brand is offering you at
any given moment

• Brand loyalty
• Brand loyalty is a central construct to marketing. Keeping
the consumer satisfied, and loyal enough to frequently
purchase just one brand, is moredifficult in today‟s
marketplace than ever before. But today, major brands are
experiencing heightened brand loyalty due to the growing
popularity of the brand as a collectible .A recent Coca-Cola
annual report reported that the second most recognized
expression in the world after “ok?” is “Coca-Cola.”
Brand personalities that1) Are well-known,2) offer something different to the world
than they do in terms of products and services„ Coca-Cola‟s‟ brand personality
reflects the positioning of its brand.
When researching the positioning of a product, consumers are often asked how they
would describe that product if it were a person. The purpose of this is to develop a
character statement. This can ensure that consumers have a clear view of the brand
values that make up the brand personality, just like the values and beliefs that make
upa person. Many people see „Coca-Cola‟ as a part of their daily life. This similarity
between the brand and the consumer leads to a high degree of loyalty and makes the
purchasing decision easier
