The guys at Coca Cola have been around for over 133 years, and that’s a seriously long time for a business to exist. It’s no secret that Coca Cola has definitely done something right, and that thing is innovation.
Coca-Cola has evolved on a yearly basis, looking for new ways to appeal to their customers. In marketing, product offering, service delivery and in brand as a whole, Coke’s evolution wasn't done by chance. It was a deliberate effort.
Today, Coca-Cola is the 9th strongest brand in the world, other businesses that started at around the same time are either no longer in existence or not as successful.
