ZOA Energy Drink 360 Marketing Campaign ​:


ZOA launched with a powerhouse founding team headed up by Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Dave Rienzi and John Shulman. Konnect was tasked to launch the brand with a 360 Marketing strategy, including PR, influencer and social strategy. 

The Challenge

Zoa introduced a fresh perspective to the saturated energy drink market by incorporating vitamins, amino acids, and natural caffeine. Given the market’s abundance of highly caffeinated products containing artificial caffeine and excessive sugar, the challenge we faced was positioning Zoa as a energy boost with a health and wellness focus.

The Solution

Our strategy aimed to expand our product’s appeal to new demographics through a comprehensive 360-degree campaign activation during the launch. This approach involved conducting interviews with the founding team, creating influencer-generated content, and revamping our social media presence to ensure a vibrant and consistent brand experience across all devices and screen sizes.

The Proof

  • Over 200 placements and 8B+ earned media impressions in first year of partnership (CNBC, Forbes, Eat This, Not That!, etc.)
  • Konnect led look-and-feel of social profiles, including graphic, motion and photoshoots
  • Instagram growth of over 220K+ with a 4%+ engagement rate 
  • 16,500,000 million potential social impressions from one-month college influencer programming campaign- “Big Can on Campus”
