Kokanee had little to no social presence on Instagram with limited budget and no media spend we were tasked with creating an online presence so the rest of Canada could experience an authentic #BetterUpHere mountain lifestyle

Carefree, easy going, loving, optimistic
• To spend more time on the mountains
• Graduate in the next year
• Move closer to Whistler
Daily Social Use
Coors is the largest mountain beer competitor, originating from Colorado, but lacks the Canadiana Culture
Coors portrays mountain lifestyle through the brand that resonates well with the audience. They have a distinct tone of voice as well as visual language through their imagery
Coast Mountain Beer is a Whistler draft that has the authenticity, but lacks the fanbase compared to coors
Coast Mountain captures the essence of living in BC by showcasing local events, people, restaurants and culture that feels authentic
Social Strategy and Listening
After defining our users and listening through social channels we addressed our largest problem; how do we bring an authentic experience of the moutains from Toronto with a a limited budget and no media spend?
Our goals were to:
Integrate user generated content to create an authentic experience for users not on the mountain.
To leverage Kokanee's mountain partners and establish a connection with the mountains and brand.
To tap into the existing love for Sask and and create big ideas that users would want to engage with.
