Going back to the beginning, founder Charles E. Snyder III got his start as a web designer. He had already spent more than a decade working on several side-hustles as an entrepreneur. But he was looking for more, so he paid to have a website built while he was learning web design.
As a result, it didn’t take very long to land his first few web design customers. And as his client base grew, so did the demand for his services. But Charles was looking to take the business to the next level.
1999 – 2014 River Valley Hosting & Web Design
By mid-1999, Charles was working and making more money with his “side-hustle” than he was working a “real” job. So he began researching what was needed to register his business with a new name in the state of Pennsylvania. And in September 1999, his new company was officially registered.
So Charles, made the name change because then he was offering more than just web design services. But a big step forward was obtaining the necessary tools and resources to offer website hosting services. Additionally, he began offering SEO, social media, email marketing, and more – the foundation for digital marketing.
But 2014 was a hard year!
By late-2013, Charles began having some severe health issues. However, he was extremely stubborn, ignoring the writing on the wall that his days as a firefighter were coming to an end. So from January through December, he lost his job, his business, his customers, and almost everything else.
2015 and onward, C. E. Snyder Marketing LLC
So from 2015 on, Charles has been working on building and scaling our agency.
In late 2016, Ann came on board, making it a team effort, working remotely. Since then she has been learning the ropes of digital marketing as well as customer service and customer relationship management. And she has been an invaluable member ever since.
