Coca-Cola Zero Sugar – Take a Taste - WPP Open X, led by Ogilvy

Our judges were wowed by Ogilvy’s strategic use of influencer marketing to drive desirability and awareness amongst new audiences for one of the world’s most recognisable brands.

Promoting Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Ogilvy executed a creative campaign that made excellent use of data insights. The behavioural science team at OpenX provided intriguing results that showed a large percentage of people steal food and drink from their co-workers. ‘Who took my Coca-Cola Zero Sugar?’ then became the narrative of the campaign.

Ogilvy partnered with multiple macro-influencers, who produced meme-able content to drive awareness. The influencers were given creative freedom for these posts. The OpenX network also produced the ‘Security Can’ – a Coke Zero can fitted with a motion-detection camera to record any attempted thievery.

With such attention to detail, Ogilvy demonstrated a first-class approach to influencer marketing, which left a profound impact on its target audience, brand, and our panel.
