Coca-Cola Zero seek to impact its audience with a diﬀerent initiative: making possible the impossible.
Coca-Cola Zero is the drink belonging to “The Coca Cola Company” aimed at young adults. Since June 2006, Coca-Cola Zero oﬀers the great ﬂavor of the classic ‘Coca-Cola’, but with a diﬀerence: zero sugar.
Aligning with its theme of “Make it Possible”, Coca Cola Zero sought to amplify the impact of a marketing initiative never seen before in Latin America: A concert in Antarctica – one of the most extreme places on Earth – with Metallica, one of the world’s most iconic bands. The campaign was aimed at maximizing the reach and impact of the event, increasing conversations, generating greater engagement for the concert throughout the region and reporting its development in real time through unique, relevant and compelling content.
How can a CPG brand use the momentum of a high-profile event to position its spirit and principles among a multicultural audience?
1 – Run the Promoted Trend #CocaColaZeroAntártida simultaneously in 12 countries.
2- Support by Promoted Tweets that included pertinent information for the audience.
3 – The Tweets, sent throughout the day, alerted users to the concert’s date and time and provided a link to the live streaming platform. Other Tweets shared exclusive backstage and on-stage pictures to capture people’s attention and drive excitement for the event.
4 – Promoted Tweets included the hashtag of the campaign to organize the conversation and had direct calls to action like “click here now” or “spread the word” to maximize engagement.

MAXIMIZE IMPACT OF PROMOTED TWEETS WITH SIMPLE AND DIRECT CALLS-TO-ACTION

“Communicating this huge event was the ﬁrst step; doing it through a natural platform for people such as Twitter, helped us turn this message into something tangible: Make possible the impossible. A Promoted Trend presented our message to millions of people, who interacted with us and used the platform as a second screen of what was going on during the concert. In addition, the associated Promoted Tweets allowed us to reinforce the interaction and capture the interest of the people.”
