Vita Coco Marketing Comms Strategy

  1. 1. Vita Coco Campaign Presentation October 18, 2010
  2. 2. Objective Increase sales of Vita Coco by 25%, from $40M to $50M. Persuade approxi- mately 600,000 Health Active Influencers, 25-34, who reside in leading-class neighborhoods of NYC and LA, and drink water and sports drinks, to consider and purchase Vita Coco 2x in 2011.
  3. 3. Opportunity To amplify the resounding fun values and attributes of the Vita Coco brand and product.
  4. 4. Truth • Vita Coco has immodest ambitions yet modest budgets • Vita Coco is a ‘loved’ brand, full of energy • The Vita Coco story is already being shared virally • Seek radical amplification not transformation
  5. 5. Marketplace Water and Sports Drinks have a one-dimensional, self righteous atti- tudes to health and wellness. Beverage brands are aggressively communicating these traditional, myopic values from media to Point of Sale. And consumers are inundated with unattainable and unrealistic goals.
  6. 6. Competitive Separate but equal commodity classifications. Water has difficulty innovating, sports drinks are post-workout and hangover occasion only. Both are means to an end, at opposite ends. PURITY-TO-PERFORMANCE CATEGORY VOID
  7. 7. Competition Other coconut water brands are also following the rules of self righteousness. But big spenders on the wrong path… “I am natural.” “One natural exerience,”
  8. 8. Category Betterment Soy Milk Vegetable Juice Diet Fruit Juice Milk Water Water Bottled Water Natural Engineered Achievement Sports Drinks
  9. 9. Insight American consumers are tired and stressed of trying to be healthy. So much effort, stress and planning, only to end up where they began. Americans are crazy about living a healthy life but does it have to be so serious, so life and death? In Brazil, a healthy lifestyle is ingrained in the culture. The pursuit of health is enjoyable, fun and spirited. Vitality is a way of living, not an accomplishment. It seems so effortless.
  10. 10. Brand Vita Coco is fun, approachable, effortless, and naïvely beautiful. “When you think of Vita Coco you think of a nice, natural life style. Vita Coco is just relaxed. Some- thing about the packaging makes it feel like it doesn’t take itself too seriously.” Jenelle, 25
  11. 11. Brazil The world admires Brazil for its ingenious, effortless style of healthy and spirited living. Brazilians are unmistakably beautiful in- side and out, radiating warm, fun-loving vibes and accents that in- toxicate. “Authentic” Brazil has strong positive associations, and aspirational motivations. Brands from Brazil appeal to early-adopters seeking new experiences that liberate them from contrived product usage.
