Bud vs. Miller
Marketing strategies of Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser beer) & Philip Morris Companies (Miller Brewing). Competitive factors, positioning, advertising, pricing. 1 Table.
“This paper will discuss the marketing strategies of Anheuser-Busch, the makers of Budweiser beer and some 50 other beer products, and the Philip Morris Companies, the owners of Miller Brewing, which makes Miller beers. For this analysis to be beneficial, we must keep in mind that the data concerning strategies such as pricing does not reflect the simplistic “Bud versus Miller” but instead suggests the competition between a company that is essentially a single-brand company and a single brand within a multiple brand company. In such a situation, the challenge is slanted toward the single brand within the multiple brand company (Biehal & Sheinin, 1998).”
