Anchored Web was founded by Adrian Rodriguez, an entrepreneur who started or helped start Web projects in previous years such as LateUpdate.com and PayShrink.com. Anchored Web Solutions' first client, a haunted house attraction in Clovis, Calif. called Fright Night Scream Park, went on to triple their online ticket sales.
The company began to stabilize, with clients returning for a second year of services and new clients changing the direction of the company to providing advertising and social networking expertise. Anchored Web Solutions won a global competition this year, becoming one of five finalists in the Americas through Google, Inc.'s "Train and Gain" competition.
Now an award-winning company, Anchored Web became established as a trustworthy and recommended Web developer in the Central Valley, and projects began to grow in scope and scale. Many of the projects started in 2012 were through government or non-profit clients, including the Fresno County Sheriff's Office and Children Now.
Anchored Web Solutions launched a new version of the Website Glimpses Into History, ushering a new era of veteran stories of service being shared to a new generation -- by allowing veterans to tell their story very easily, and have those details converted into interactive media.
Anchored Web's work with foundations continued to grow. The Foundation for Public Safety, the Central Valley School of Ministry, and the Fresno Deputy Sheriff's Association signed on as clients. Being an election year, Anchored Web designed the Websites and produced content for political campaigns, all of which were successful — the candidates won.
Anchored Web Solutions continues to expand its reach as a full-fledged, one-stop shop for all of a company or organization's marketing and digital presence needs.
