Our early years...
All you need is a computer and a modem to connect to the world and make a difference.
While working as the chief design engineer for a local company back in the early 90's I was amazed at the number of clients, namely small businesses that were being turned away because their projects were not considered big or profitable enough.
After examining all angles I realized that not only could I help those smaller businesses, but I could do so at a much lower cost than the larger agencies were charging. I invested what I had into a new startup company and began offering Web Design & Technical Consulting services to small businesses.
As word of mouth began to spread I soon had all the business I could handle. Our clients ranged from Real Estate Agents, Mom and Pop businesses and even two local radio stations.
Today we are as committed as ever to your success.
"Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people" - Steve Jobs
In 2003 we began helping our clients with their eMarketing efforts by designing effective online campaigns including custom landing pages and promotional emails for their customers. In 2005 we launched our new Graphic Design division which can handle a variety items for customers ranging from business cards & brochures to fliers and print advertisements, right through to corporate brand design & development services.
Finally in 2008 we launched our Social Media marketing team in order to help our clients manage their brand.
It is hard to believe that we are about to embark on our 23rd year. Looking back at all the clients we have helped and friends we have made we are proud to be a part the community and look forward to where the next 20 years takes us.
It is always a pleasure to work with the Guildernet team. Thank you for all your support over the years.

Guildernet was founded
In its inception, Guildernet was a full service IT agency. Offering custom built PC's, PC repair, network and server installs as well as web development services. As time moved on the primary focus turned to web design and development.
Marketing team formed
In working with existing and new clients we noticed that many of them were in need of some basic marketing functions. It was at this time that we leveraged our experience in working with marketing teams in larger organizations and used that experience to benefit our clients.
Graphic Design team formed
As the requests for help with marketing continued to grow, the need for a dedicated graphic design team was needed. The team assists clients with everything from logo creation to business cards, signs, magazine / newspaper advertisements, custom shirts and even the design of promotional items.
Dedicated eMarketing & Social Media team formed
As Internet usage continued to grow accompanied by the explosion in Social Media we understood that the development of a digital marketing team would be needed to help our clients manage their digital presence as well as interact with their customers on a more personal level.
The revolution of interactive web sites
It was clear to us in early 2011 that customers and users were starting to expect more form a web presence than static content. There was a desire to interact with websites in ways that traditional sites could not offer. In addition some clients were looking for the ability to update content quickly themselves which resulted in our designing custom content management systems for some clients.
