We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” —Sir Winston Churchill


The Blue Ocean Strategy

The idea with Blue Ocean – as opposed to a red ocean – is that it is innovative and collaborative – as opposed to a bloody competition. The foundation of Blue Ocean is creating value through education. Blue Ocean Global Technology doesn’t only build websites and apps for companies, but thinks of itself as a partner and creates a win-win situation. Sameer and his team at Blue Ocean are passionate about fostering trust and providing guidance.


What can Sameer and his team help you with?

Transform challenges into opportunities

The way companies need to think about engaging and positioning themselves is changing as a result of technology. Maybe 10 years ago it was enough to have a website, but now you need to manage your online reputation for the longevity of your business.

Sometimes websites may be full of great content but aren’t being seen because they lack internet presence. This is something Sameer and his team can change. 

Sometimes social media outlets don’t get used to their fullest. Yet it’s almost better not to have a social media account if you’re not present on it. Creating a great social media calendar is another thing Sameer can advise clients on.
