Print Ad Analysis
Analysis of Text
The basic Ad line of this print advertisement “CONTINUOUS QUALITY IS QUALITY YOU TRUST” is a line to entrust the market with the fact that Coca Cola does not compromise on its quality standards, and the quality in one bottle is absolutely equal to the quality in another bottle. In the 1940s, Coca Cola was at the receiving end of strong criticism for the acidity levels of its drink. Although Coca Cola justified it by saying that its competitors had similar levels of acidity content, it launched a public campaign regarding quality control to target the quality and health conscious and maintain their position in the market with a “safe” drink. The Ad line at the bottom of the Print Ad, “Ask it for either way...both trademarks mean the same” is to inform the public that both the names are the same drink. Coke was the initial name, and it was rebranded as Coca Cola. But there was always a threat of brand diminishment, and also lack of response towards Coca Cola. Coke had already established itself in the market, and the fall in the market presence of the brand ‘Coke’ and the increased presence of the brand ‘Coca Cola’ would create an uncertainty about the sales of the product. Therefore such an ad campaign was essential to inform the consumers, so that they wouldn’t differentiate between the two brands and relished Coca Cola the way they relished Coke.
