Coca Cola Content is Liquid

In today’s media world where everyone can publish, CONTENT is KING. Coke has set up a great guideline in what it sees as ‘good content’.

Outcomes cannot be predicted. There is no reason for management to get in the way of the creative process. Character, creativity and good story-telling trump everything else.
