Why Tangent Chose O8

As experts in all things digital, Tangent Materials chose O8 because of their in-depth social media knowledge, creative branding abilities, and holistic approach to increasing engagement through digital marketing and social.

How O8 Responded

Captivating digital experiences, especially on social media, require understanding how audiences use each channel, what they value, and why. 

As a result, O8 developed a strategic approach to presenting visuals paired with copy and other branding assets that spoke B2B customer interests and values. Through careful social monitoring and listening, O8 was able to surface key insights to create campaigns centered on community involvement and core brand values. This included various DIY projects, community events, and corporate initiatives focused on sustainability. 

As a brand that specializes in reusable, planet-friendly material goods, instead of taking an opportunity like Earth Month to promote product lines, O8 created and implemented a 30-day campaign applicable to all audiences sharing a daily story tip on how to celebrate Earth Month and helping create a better future. All this led to more awareness and engagement around important social responsibility and brand initiatives. 

Understanding the crossover between customer and prospect values and how to incorporate that into new and engaging visual content led to major improvements in all key social metrics.

The Results

The O8 team increased monthly social engagement, building brand loyalty and attracting new customers. Through inviting imagery and campaigns that organically met customers where they were in their journey, helped them feel heard, attended to, entertained, and educated on the applications and unique selling features of the Tangent Materials brand.
