sasag Joins Forces with GANDT on Strategic Digital Marketing

Post by Christopher Smid

Over the past 12 months, we increased sasag’s presence on local digital advertising channels and optimized their website with a higher focus on an efficient sales funnel. We are excited to share the progress we have made, supporting internet service provider sasag AG in their marketing efforts.

We are working closely with CEO Daniel Kyburz and the Head of Marketing and Sales Tobias Münzer to:

  • Increase the efficiency in their performance marketing spend and create a strong foundation, as a way to increase brand awareness and online sales by managing and operating their performance marketing channels.
  • Create a coherent online user experience in their online shop by restructuring their sitemap layout, develop conversion driven mockups for key brand and product pages, and oversee all SEO relevant aspects to ensure an increase in organic traffic.
  • Understand how their customers interact with the brand, and what impact their online marketing measures have on their local store. We are doing this by setting up marketing intelligence dashboards to create a top level overview of marketing channel performance and on-page user performance.


State of the Industry

Project Manger Chris Smid says, “The ISP Market is dominated by a few selected companies that sell their services nationwide in Switzerland. In the last years regional providers have been noticing the pressure by their bigger competitors. Salt, Sunrise and Swisscom have entered an increased price battle for new customers. In Addition, these telco giants have increased marketing efforts in local markets to minimize customer movement to local suppliers.“
