The Challenge

A Story To Tell Before Kick Off.

Bolt PR needed to craft a compelling and differentiated brand narrative to break through an increasingly competitive marketplace, earn pre-launch media buzz, develop and execute an extensive influencer outreach program for “beta testing,” and launch a crowdfunding campaign purely for marketing purposes. All with no brand recognition and before ever officially going to market. The wellness tech brand knew Bolt PR had deep roots and connections in the consumer tech space, a proven track record, a proactive team, and a smart strategy to break through the noise and make big impact for the new brand.

The Results

Acquired Before Going to Market.

In just five months, Bolt PR surpassed the crowdfunding goal by 700%; drove thousands of audience interactions and email leads; earned the brand the highly coveted CES Best of Innovation Award, Engadget’s Best of CES winner and Stuff Magazine’s Wearable Tech Award; and confirmed influencer beta testers that included: elite and professional athletes, coaches and Olympians across various fitness verticals, as well as social media influencers and top-tier journalists from the Wall Street Journal and ESPN Magazine, to name a few. In this short time period of five months leading up to the official market launch, Bolt PR also secured 600+ individual media articles and placements, during and following CES, totaling more than one billion earned media impressions. The company was acquired before ever officially going to market and years ahead of projections.
