Stewart Surf

Reposition Stewart Surfboards to engage with its global audience via social media and graduate the internal commerce operations from a largely manual process to an e-commerce platform-centered approach.


Evolve a brick-and-mortar brand into a e-commerce powerhouse

The Challenges.

Stewart Surfboards, a 40-year-old global brand needed a better way to engage with its audience that is found all over the world. Additionally, most of the business generated was located within physical brick-and-mortar locations. Stewart wished to transition the majority of their business to an e-commerce platform.

Our Approach.

Our strategy team initially performed a thorough discovery of past social media engagement, and, with consultation with Stewart’s leadership, we developed a comprehensive profile of audiences and personas.

We built out new digital properties, social media designs, and a new e-commerce website. Our creative team reworked the company’s messaging with a new set of brand style guidelines that would influence and guide the company’s new social media approach.

Once the new e-commerce infrastructure was in place, our teams developed strategic social media campaigns designed to drive brand loyalty and recognition. But, more importantly, the new campaign structures were built to drive e-commerce success.
