Literature Review

Redbull house is highly creative and innovative in creating a media campaign on social networking websites. Using social media to run a public campaign is very helpful in finding out, what people thinks about the product or about the company, but at the same time it will create some of the critical questions, which needs to be answered.

Question 1- How the campaign by Red bull on social media was initiated and was it a successful one?

Question 2- How they identified their main social media platform and their customers, and how can they achieve more success?

Question 3- The content provided was enough or not? Can the consumers got attracted by their campaign?

The first question was how the campaign was initiated, well the main reason was the popularity of social media. Nowadays people prefer to use social media as their main platform, from where they can get connected to the outside world. Redbull uses this as their main motivation to start a online campaign. Social networking mediums like Facebook, Instagram, twitter were all used by Red bull. Redbull created an official page on all the social networking websites, and they started uploading the information about their new energy drink which was for Summer season (Parveen, Jaafar and Ainin, 2015). They started a campaign on a place, where they invited people through those websites, they served the new drink to the consumers for free, just to check that what they feel about the drink, how is the taste and was this drink giving a fresh energy after using. To some people who are very active on their social media pages and those who can not come on their campaign, they even send them the energy drinks to their respective places. As people used the drinks, and they find that drink very energetic, so they started posting good reviews on all the social networking websites. This leaves a great impact on other people also, because they were not the regular consumer of Redbull, but soon after reading the online reviews, they changed their minds and started buying the new energy drink. So as the market demand increases, and more number of consumers are buying the new product of red bull, one can say that the campaign which was initiated earlier was a successful one (Hays, Page and Buhalis, 2013).

The second question was about their main social media platform. After creating the official pages, they started posting the information and news on a daily basis, and they also started the online offers, if someone buys their drink online. The best thing was the increase in the number of followers on the social media. The numbers were increasing so quickly, and very soon it reached to more than 46 million follower on Facebook. These numbers are way beyond expectations and many more than the other networking websites, so they identified that their main media platform for this campaign will be Facebook. The main aim of this campaign was to drive the awareness of the extension of the brand and the launching of the new summer energy drink. The way they post videos and images defines them the part of today's life style and this makes them different form other companies. Redbull is generally good in responding people's queries on social media than some other big companies like TESCO, or ASDA. This gives people more freedom about asking anything they want and people will also feel that they are satisfied (Hudson, and et.al 2015). Now they started to plan some new campaigns on Instagram and twitter also, so that more number of people will get to know about them. The number of followers are also increasing on these social networking websites and the way of presentation of Red bull is very effective, so this will generate more interest among people to try their new products and post some good reviews on those websites.

The third and one of the important question was about the content and data they are providing. The content provided on Redbull social networking websites are generally very innovative and creative. The depth in the content and the knowledge the consumers can get by that data is also on the higher side. This makes other people or the person who doesn't know about their product very easy to identify what kind of product they are looking for. Redbull is also having a series of videos which shows their journey from the beginning till today, and these videos are very creative, so this will attract more consumers to take interest in their product. Redbull always keeps their followers updated about their product or the next drink they are going to launch, so this gives the consumers a brief idea about their next product (Parveen, Jaafar, and Ainin, 2015). Redbull attracts more consumers just by the advertisements and then the offers they are providing on each drink. These are the reasons the company keeps on organizing such kind of social media campaign. This makes more people aware about their product and more people about their highly rich cultured company.
