Kia-Logo-MiniKia Motors Emblem, GGN Sponsored Content Advertiser


The International car maker KIA motors has selected GGN’s Global Good Group as a web publisher to help promote their latest model, the 2012 Rio.

With a brand new technology platform, UVO, and celebrity endorsements such as Christina Milian the Rio is set to make a splash.

For this campaign a special scavenger hunt was made as a guerrilla marketing tactic which featured two groups of people competing on different challenges.

The groups needed to drive around in the Rio and use their technology such as their iPhone to scan QR codes and the Rio’s navigation to get to their destinations.

Ultimately the goal for this car was to appeal to a younger demographic including college students and young professionals, among others, to generate demand.

As a brand with a large youth following in the USA and Internationally, Global Good Group was a fit for this marketing program.



Discuss the new technologies in the KIA Rio such as Bluetooth, USB, and Satellite Navigation

Include a link to the UVO technology page describing the other next gen features in the Rio

Ensure other call to actions and links are included pointing towards Kia and the RIO info site

Write the sponsored content, have it approved and make final edits, then publish by a deadline

Review the promo video and write about each of the stops the teams make in the video

Mention Christina Milian, the celebrity endorser in the Zip and Dash to LA promo tape

Embed proper disclosure that the post was sponsored to follow FTC guidelines for endorsed material

Make sure all links are set to “no-follow” to receive credit from Google as a non spam link
