Sardostain brands, builds, and promotes, offering end-to-end solutions, agility in execution, and depth of specialization.

 

Strategy

Why brands need digital strategy

Businesses today differentiate not on product or price, but on the quality of the experience they provide. And customer experience is increasingly digitized.

If you can impress demanding customers with a frictionless journey, you’ll win favor, engagement, and market share. But the question is: what do your customers really want?

Over 10 years of experience have shown us one thing: quality digital experiences need a strategy driving them. We’ve helped countless clients draw actionable digital roadmaps, launch new websites, and create the apps and experiences that help them compete and win.

Building standout brands for a crowded world

Audiences have always gravitated toward authentic brands. But consumers have only grown choosier, and with good reason: Audiences encounter more brands today than ever before.

Meanwhile, digital has changed how we tell brand stories. Social, mobile, and next-gen innovations have given businesses of all sizes the ability to share their story – if they can be heard over the noise.

In this environment, the most successful brands have a strong relationship with their audience, and a clear understanding of who they are and the values they stand by. That takes strategic clarity, a focus on authentic connection, and a lot of personality.

With more than 10 years experience transforming brands, Sardostain understands how companies find success and build loyalty in digital. We provide the strategic leadership brands need to discover, rethink, and refresh their identity for today’s marketplace.

Keeping pace in a digital world

Once, digital disruption loomed as an extinction-level event. Today, it’s an ongoing process. Constant innovation is the only way to outthink competitors and outpace change. 

The challenge: building a digitally enabled business is tough.

Siloed teams, talent shortages, data quality issues, and outdated processes stand in the way of transformation. And while you’re battling these problems, you can’t take your eye off the operations that are bringing in revenue now.

When you’re on a digital transformation journey, Blue Fountain Media can serve as a guide and a fresh pair of eyes. With intellectual firepower, deep curiosity, and a unique perspective on emerging technologies, we’re here to draw up a roadmap for your digital future.

Branding

Crafting logos with impact

Consumers see more logos today than ever before, but they only remember a select few. Great logos embody their brand, tell a unique story, speak values loudly – they stand for something.

While most brands know what they stand for, realizing their ideals in a symbol is a daunting challenge. And more than 10 years of building brands have taught us that memorable logos don’t happen by accident.

At Sardostain, our logo design process is informed by high-quality research and sound strategy. Our team goes hands-on with clients to create a logo that makes a real impression – something your audience can rally behind and rep with pride.

Email us at brand@sardostain.com for a Logo Design consultation.

Creating brand collateral for business impact

Brand collateral – from packaging and print to business cards and t-shirts – is about getting your brand noticed and strengthening the bond between company and customer. Putting truly memorable collateral in the hands of your customers requires great design – not to mention branding worth showing off in the first place.

As a full-service branding and marketing agency, Sardostain knows there’s a lot more to creating powerful brand collateral than slapping a logo on a product. Our designers add to your marketing toolkit with creative, eye-catching designs, applied to the right products in the right way.

Email us at brand@sardostain.com for a Brand Collateral consultation.

The Power in Authenticity

Consumers today are more inundated with ads, more jaded with marketing, and more skeptical of brands than ever before. Yet the very same consumers have rocketed so many digital brands into overnight success.

While today’s customers are choosy, they still gravitate toward brands that look, speak, and act authentically. But creating a genuine brand identity – let alone one that aligns with your business goals – is a daunting task.

Here at Sardostain, we know it what takes for digital brands to succeed. With an eye for storytelling and an enthusiasm for strategy, our team helps companies stand out through art direction, engaging content, and bit of soul-searching too.

Experience Design

Why UX is a brand and business need

It’s human nature: people like things to be easy and clear. And today, people have seamless user experiences at their fingertips, every minute of every day. Expectations are high.

So when a digital property isn’t easy to use, people get frustrated. And when they get frustrated, they go elsewhere – leaving with a poor impression of your business.

The good news is that building a great user experience takes work, but it’s not magic. You need the right expertise, a passion for listening to your users, and a willingness to test and learn.

The experts on Sardostain’s UX team bring all of those qualities and more. It’s their job to turn the frustration of “what’s going on?” into the joy of “that was easy” – designing standout experiences that convert prospects and keep customers coming back.

Email us at dev@sardostain.com for a Information Architecture + UX consultation.

Why website design matters

A website is a brand touchpoint, a business tool, and a place to drive critical conversions. A great website can be an engine of business growth. A poor site can inflict damage on your brand.

But outstanding web design isn’t easy. Today’s audiences have high expectations. You have seconds – maybe milliseconds – to convince visitors that your site is worth their time.

With over 10 years of experience, Sardostain creates websites to exceed audience expectations. We build sites to perform with a focus on strategic planning, compelling visual design, and flawless user experience, in order to drive superior results.

Email us at dev@sardostain.com for a Website Design consultation.

Navigating the Mobile-First Era

Practically overnight, mobile has become the primary way users engage digitally. And today, audiences judge brands by the quality of the experience they provide. Without a seamless mobile experience, you risk being written off as a waste of time and space.

Apps are not the only way to conquer mobile, but they’re a powerful tool – they’re natively mobile, offer broad capabilities, and give you a permanent presence on devices your customers check over 50 times a day.

With nearly two decades of experience in digital, the Sardostain team understands what goes into truly intuitive and engaging mobile experiences. For clients ready to break into the app marketplace, we’re an end-to-end partner for mobile experience design.

Designing for the user

Downloading a mobile app is a commitment. If consumers are going to find your app and integrate it into their routine, the experience must keep them coming back. That starts and ends with the user:

Listen to the user. Your app design agency should be invested in understanding the needs of users, and how your app might meet those needs. Otherwise, there’s no reason to believe people will use it.

Design for user needs. Naturally, you want your app to look good. But great app design never complicates things; it gets out of the way and lets users do what they need to do.

Test with real users. You never really know until you test. Once your agency thinks they have everything just right, they should be letting users go hands-on with the product and prove them wrong. This feedback is key for designing an app that actually understands its audience.

Email us at dev@sardostain.com for a Mobile App Design consultation.

Why eCommerce website design matters

Creating custom experiences is key to winning customers’ hearts – and seizing market share. When the right products, design, features, and branding come together, users have more excuses to stick around – and more reasons to buy.

We’ve been designing high-performing websites for over 10 years, and eCommerce sites are at the core of our expertise. We’re focused on creating strategic, compelling designs that deliver unique experiences, driving purchases and bringing users back again and again.

Success in Understanding

For global brands, every new market is a new test. What works in New York won’t work
in Paris; what works in Paris might not resonate in Moscow. Business leaders
understand this, implementing localization practices across global markets. Every choice matters for a brand, and the stakes are high. 

But true localization, the kind that shows real cultural literacy, is a complex equation of messaging, UX, and strategy. Fostering a global brand is all about stepping into your users’ shoes and understanding what fuels their interest. That’s a marketing problem.
So, get marketers to solve it. 

That’s why Sardostain has developed Global Experience: a unique hybrid program that merges testing, data science, and market research to drive localization efforts and build brands that earn affection the world over.

Why Global Brands Choose Us

A global presence comes with distinct challenges – often unexpected ones. Our team has experience helping brands clear these hurdles, so they can move confidently in international markets.

Scalable Testing. Testing can quickly become unsustainable at a global scale.
We’ve solved this by leveraging the vast outsourcing network, our
parent company, putting hundreds of thousands of global resources within reach.

Cross-Team Collaboration. You get the best of both worlds: class-leading localization knowledge, and agency-grade creative thinking. 

A Focus on Strategy. We work with you to identify and prioritize business goals, and help stakeholders see the strategic steps necessary to realize global success.

The challenge of relevance and AI readiness

Customers respond to what’s relevant. Ensuring they only see relevant products and
content on your digital platforms requires analytical savvy and quality data. And if you’re investing in AI, a model that’s learning from bad data can be worse than useless.

Delivering relevant – and ultimately, intelligent – experiences demands unrelenting
attention to data quality. But typically, data curation is no one’s job.

As a result, curation either becomes an ungainly ad hoc program, forces high-skill talent into repetitive work, or simply doesn’t get done. In these cases, getting your data unstuck requires help.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Data Curation + Labeling consultation.

Digital Marketing

The challenge of meeting audience expectations

Audiences today are empowered by connected technologies – and bombarded with marketing messages. It’s harder than ever to be heard above the noise.

Even conversion-focused brands need to think about building and retaining a loyal audience to protect themselves against commoditization or disruption. To build that kind of brand, you need a story. And to shape that story, you need a strategy.

Sardostain leverages our digital experience, analytics expertise, and creative talent to build marketing strategies that deliver exceptional results. In a landscape of disruption, our team blends the art and science of strategy, seizing opportunities through actionable insights and powerful storytelling.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Marketing Strategy consultation.

The challenge and opportunity of social media

A lot changes in social media, and fast. Algorithms update, users switch platforms, and new features emerge, making it tough to reach people and build a loyal following.

But it’s a social world, and businesses must keep pace. And when branding, content, and strategic distribution across the right channels work together, social becomes an engine for incredible growth.

Sardostain is more than a social media agency. Drawing on our team of talented strategists, copywriters, designers, and paid media specialists, Sardostain delivers the expertise to create engaging and click-worthy social media experiences.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Social Media Marketing consultation.

Choosing an SEO partner

Big or small, businesses that win at search reap enormous benefits. But although SEO is technical, it’s not an exact science, and it takes time to show results (anyone who tells you otherwise is lying).

As a result, you’re putting a lot of trust in an SEO partner. Here’s what you should be looking for from your search agency:

Focused on people. A good SEO agency naturally lives and breathes the technical stuff, but ultimately people, not bots, do business with you. Your search marketing team should care about the customer experience.

Moving with the times. SEO changes fast. There are new challenges all the time, from algorithm changes to the impact of voice. An agency that hasn’t changed their approach in 3 years is hopelessly out of touch. A great SEO agency is always evolving.

Clear communication. Google’s algorithm is complex. SEO decisions often involve weighing pros and cons. So it’s important that your SEO partner can clearly and transparently explain their recommendations.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Search Engine Optimization consultation.

Getting the most from your ad spend

Between search, display, YouTube, sponsored content, and social media – and the targeting options available in each of those channels – digital media offers a paralyzing amount of choice.

The challenge is knowing how reach the right people on the right platforms. Without sufficient tools, time, and expertise on hand, it can be hard to tell if your marketing dollars are being spent wisely, let alone efficiently. 

We’re experts at creating high-performance ads and hyper-targeted campaigns, using all the tools of digital media to optimize how your marketing budget is spent. Our team of paid media specialists, data scientists, and creatives work together to connect you with your audience, generating leads, sales, and revenue with maximum effectiveness.

Data that lives up to its potential

Data that lives up to its potential
Data is powerful. It helps businesses find opportunity and maximize marketing efficiency. So it’s no surprise that businesses are collecting more data than ever before.

But somehow, more data doesn’t always translate into valuable, actionable insights.

If you can’t separate signal from noise – and extract the insights that help you boost marketing performance – then your data collection is a story of lost opportunity.

Sardostain drives marketing success by infusing data with context to drive informed action. By collecting and visualizing data, and teaming up data experts with cross-disciplinary teams of marketers, we lay the foundations for smarter strategic decisions.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Data Analytics + BI consultation.

Getting content to work for you

Great content marketing is almost unfair. It brings qualified purchasers to you, helps drive conversions while providing brand lift, and continues to deliver value for years. 

But in a crowded digital space, not every piece of content achieves its full potential. Content success requires agility, strategy, a willingness to provide value, and above all, persistence.

At Sardostain, we create content that resonates with your customers because it’s engineered for them. Our content marketing services start with well-crafted strategies, drawing on channel expertise and performance data to make better content that works harder for your business.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Content Marketing consultation.

PR for a changing media landscape

Great PR knows how to cut through the clamor and build affection for your brand. But in a noisy and often cynical digital world, the old ways aren’t always effective.

Today, PR is still story-driven, but storytelling is constantly evolving with the changing moods and innovations of digital. Success brings visibility and engagement, but those that can’t meet audience expectations risk getting lost in the fray.

As digital natives and natural storytellers, the Sardostain team approaches digital PR with a deep understanding of the online landscape and a keen eye for consumer behavior. We add original research, a focus on results, and an enthusiasm for creative, contagious content, to produce PR that actually works.

Finding storytellers you can trust

Once your story is out there, it’s hard to walk it back. Make sure you’re confident in the team telling yours, and that you’re looking for the marks of a quality Digital PR agency:

Always agile. From politics to pop culture, your story can be viewed through all kinds of constantly-changing lenses. Savvy agencies always have an eye on the horizon, so they can pivot at a moment’s notice.

Research-driven. Understanding your audience is critical if your PR efforts are going to rise above the rest. Agencies that do their research and apply what they learn have a better chance of earning your brand the spotlight.

Focused on measurement. Data points like engagement, shares or views don’t always tell the whole story, but your agency should care about identifying and growing meaningful metrics.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Digital PR consultation.

Matching brands with the right advocates in digital

With more ads than ever vying for their attention, consumers today are selective with their trust. To cut through, brands need advocates their audiences like and believe in – which is where influencers shine.

As influencer marketing has gone mainstream, it’s no surprise that companies want to have an influencer – or many influencers – on their side. But it’s not one-size-fits-all. Instead of chasing the biggest names with the most likes, brands need to identify and connect with people that reflect their brand values.

Sardostain leverages strategic thinking and social savvy to act as digital matchmakers, scouting out the select few that authentically represent your brand. By doing the hard work of making connections and deepening them over time, we build better relationships to drive superior results.

Email us at market@sardostain.com for a Influencer Marketing consultation.

Technology

How technology drives business in the digital era

Once upon a time, your tech stack was a problem for tech people. But in a digital world, technology strategy is inseparable from business strategy.

Digital leaders rely on technology platforms to enable collaboration, agility, and a customer-first mindset. Technology expertise matters more than ever, but making the right tech choices is now a whole-of-business concern. 

Sardostain excels at smartly architecting and swiftly developing experience solutions. Deploying a proprietary framework, our solutions architects define and create optimal solutions, with an unshakeable focus on business efficiency, user experience and business need.

The pain of an underperforming website

Your website represents your brand. And a site that’s slow, unreliable, or hard to use is a website that customers and prospects will avoid. Internal teams also suffer when small website changes are agonizingly slow, and big changes are out of the question.

Yet starting a web development project feels daunting, so businesses often feel stuck with the status quo, risking missed opportunities and competitive disadvantage.

With over 10 years of experience developing upon the top CMS platforms and a well-honed project management process, Sardostain builds high-performing sites across a wide range of industries. We’ve overcome all kinds of challenges for our clients, helping achieve some exceptional results in the process.

The hard work behind simple apps

Apps have fueled disruption, creating and transforming industries. In the process, they’ve made complex organizational problems – like curating vast amounts of content, or providing transportation on demand – seem effortless.

But in reality, behind every “simple” app is robust technology architecture and immaculate code, engineered to deliver a seamless experience.

Whether you’re looking to create amazing user experiences, streamline operations, or get an edge over competitors, Sardostain offers the mobile app development expertise to help you get there. Leveraging our technical talents and strategic insights, we deliver rich experiences that spur brand growth.

Selecting an app development agency

Creating an app is a major step for even the biggest business. Before you settle on a partner to help you do so, here are some things to look for: 

Open dialogue. There are some things only an app can do. But responsive website design has come a long way and covers many mobile use cases. Before starting on an app, your agency should be giving an honest assessment of whether you really need one.

Agile approach. Agile matters for two reasons. First, consumers expect apps to be regularly updated and improved. Second, if you build every feature and permutation at once, chances are you’ll be late to market.

Experienced project management. An app build is a management challenge as well as a technical effort. Your agency needs the experience and the process to keep the project moving efficiently

Email us at dev@sardostain.com for a App Development consultation.

How development drives eCommerce success

eCommerce businesses know that user experience and revenue go hand in hand. When users find shopping hard, slow, or confusing, they don’t convert and you don’t get paid.

That’s why your eCommerce site should be working hard for you – streamlining your business and making shopping effortless. But without a well-developed site, you’re trying to build a great experience on shaky foundations.

With over 10 years in the business, Sardostain has developed more than our share of high-performing eCommerce sites. We focus on delivering an experience users love, so you can get products off your shelves and into buyers’ carts.

Email us at dev@sardostain.com for a eCommerce Development consultation.

Bringing you world-leading platforms

In the digital era, businesses need to move faster, and with more flexibility. But having an agile mindset isn’t enough. You also need the technology to execute on your ideas.

That’s why selecting and building on the right platform is critical. And it’s why Sardostain partners with so many industry-leading CMS providers and other technology partners. We help you choose a solution from among the industry’s best, and follow through with a specialist implementation team that knows your chosen platform inside and out.

Email us at dev@sardostain.com for a Partnerships + CMS consultation.
