Digital Marketing Campaign Objectives


Relaunch a website to represent organics recycling in Ohio

OHOC had an outdated website that was lacking functionality and wasn’t useful for the membership organization.

They decided to seek the help of Compost Marketing Agency.


Increase the membership.

We set a goal to reactivate and increase membership on all levels.


To create and execute digital marketing campaigns.

We are gearing campaigns towards multiple compost stakeholders. Uniting composters in the state chapter and raising awareness about composting towards legislators.


Increase their reach and find audiences.

OHOC noticed that their reach wasn’t what it could have been and decided to seek the help of Compost Marketing Agency.

The email campaigns can be integrated with their customer database as well.

Creating event notifications is easy since OHOC is capable of adding countdowns for significant events on their site, along with a streamlined way to add details about the event to their home page.

Event pages are fully functional, with the capability to add an event schedule, registration links, and event flyers directly to the page.
