3 Best Marketed Companies

Red Bull - This brand has a tendency to host extreme sports events all over the world. This gains them access to people and customers all over the world. They also don't use the normal 12 OZ can or a bottle. Red bull looks European, which translates to a better international presence.

Domino's - The company increased its international awareness by diversifying its menu by adding toppings like seaweed and fish in places like China and Japan. They are flexible from country to country which translates to more presence and being more renown in these countries. This is truly a genius marketing technique. They eperienced a sales growth of 5% in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year.

Nike - Nike spends money on sponsorships for tournaments and reaches a large audience through that. But the very innovative technique they use is that of the Nike Co creation tool on their website. They put the power of design into the customer, by doing this they can reach the tastes of all different cultures and reach an enormous audience.
