As of October, the Marketing team is currently made up of four individuals. The team includes:
Currently, there is a strong focus on building a solid foundation of organic marketing. This is done through interesting Instagram/LinkedIn content pieces and entertaining TikTok and Reel videos. From this, the best-performing content is then used in paid marketing activities to reach more people who would be interested in an all-digital green energy provider.
The main performance marketing channels used are Search & Paid Social. You’ll most likely find the ads at the top of the Google Search results, in your Instagram/Facebook feed, while surfing your favorite Subreddit or in the TikTok For You page. By being a mobile-first company, it is crucial to continually optimize the Apple App Store & Google Play Store listings whilst ensuring users find the app easily.
The team is also focusing on expanding partnerships with other like-minded companies and collaborating with publishers who are sharing valuable information with Ostrom’s audience.
To inform, educate, entertain & create overall value for Ostrom’s audience through providing interesting, relevant or when possible, humorous content. When memorable and convincing enough, the audience is more likely to sign up to have Ostrom as their energy provider.
Performance-wise, the goal is to have a low CAC (Customer Acquisition Cost) whilst still keeping the upper funnel channels like Paid Social healthy to help feed growth through lower funnel channels like Search.
Passionate about what they do and obsessed with data. The team is a perfect blend of creativity, innovative thinking, analytical skills and data-backed reasoning that ensures Ostrom’s marketing is both fun, interesting & extremely effective. Whether it’s A/B testing, pursuing a new growth channel or jumping on the latest TikTok trend, whatever it may be you can be assured data is always collected to measure impact and maximize team learning.
Ostrom reduces electricity costs for all customers once again! The unit rate will be decreased by 2.25 ct/kWh gross which translates to additional annual savings of 50€ per year, on top of the several hundred euros from our earlier price decreases for the average Ostrom customer.
As Ostrom turns two, we reflect on our challenges and wins and why we're excited about the future!
