Coke Shifts Ad Budget Priorities To Reflect New Emphasis On Social, Digital

November 4, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The Coca-Cola brand in Australia is relying on innovative digital and social media marketing techniques to attract and retain teenagers, a move that might be bad news for mainstream ad media, including television. Digital and social media ad campaigns totaling $10 million replaced TV during the summer to tout Coke’s six new can colors and a smaller (250 ml) can. The campaign included special YouTube videos, interactive shopping center ads, Coke can-dispensing bus shelter panels and other techniques designed to draw in teenagers and form a relationship with Coca-Cola. The company’s ad budget for innovation is now much higher than the 10 percent it used to spend, while the 70 percent budgeted for traditional media is much lower.
