The Three Best Marketing Campaigns of 2015

1. Coca-Cola: Coca-Cola is a beverage company that only sold its flagship product Coca-Cola-Coca until 1985 almost 100 years after its founding. Coca-Cola owns everything from Sprite to Vitamin Water. Cola's movement from making individual ads for each of their products to featuring all four Coca-Cola variations was a genius marketing strategy because instead of being four different products, they were now just perceived as tiny variations of the same product.

2. Pom Wonderful: Pom Wonderful is a beverage company that sells pure pomegranate juice. Pom Wonderful released a barrage of funny advertisements each featuring a customer drinking Pom Wonderful and a creature made of Pomegranate juice that always knocks something over accidentally. During these commercials the narrator talks about the antioxident properties of Pom Wonderful. This campaign is well done because it is both humorous and informative. It stays in the mind of the potential customer.
