GOLD! Always to believe in your soul (please excuse the cheese and read on…)
Being the PR pros that we are, we’re very used to shouting about how fabulous our clients are, but perhaps less so for ourselves… So, if you will, please excuse us whilst we take a moment to blow our own trumpet!
Last Friday, the Octanites dusted off their best and sparkliest outfits to attend the South West and Channel Islands CIPR PRide awards ceremony where we won Gold for Best Use of Social Media!
On receiving the award for our Fit for Festive Fashion event, we were given some glowing feedback. “This entry was a clear and deserved winner as it utilised an excellent mix of activity but the true reflection of the success of the campaign was Octane’s ability to have excelled in so much in an exceptionally tight timeframe. A great, creative campaign which was agile enough to respond to challenging timescales and generate genuine return. A strong strategy, using a series of social media mechanics, combined with good evaluation had a direct impact on customer profile. Overall, a strong winner which demonstrates the value that social media can bring”.
Following that, the night got a little boisterous shall we say… just see the pics!
The PRide awards acknowledge the very best, most exciting and inspiring work across these regions. To be recognised for excellence in Social Media (for two years running, don’t you know!) is a real coup. It’s an ever changing and emerging beast which we’re proud to be on good terms with! So, as we position our newest trophy next to our other agency awards – Cheers! Here’s to another award winning year.
