About Our Founder Chris W. Sharp
SharpNET Solutions was founded by Chris W. Sharp in September of 1998 as an internet marketing company, located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Older than Google, SharpNET was launched early into the “dot-com boom.” Chris earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering and was employed as a Process Engineer for companies including Hewlett Packard, Agilent, and Micron Technology where Mr. Sharp earned an engineering patent for the semiconductor industry. Mr. Sharp enjoys giving back; having coached soccer to kids for over nine seasons and track for two. Mr. Sharp and his wife Amie of 24 years have raised three vibrant boys, including identical twins currently attending college at CSU and the oldest who works as a software engineer for Amazon in Seattle.
SharpNET Grows Up
Over time, SharpNET experienced significant growth and was selected twice as a Mercury 100 company (top 10 business growth) for Northern Colorado. SharpNET is a two-time nominee for the Biz West IQ Award (Innovation Quotient) for innovative and emerging companies. Through innovation and dedication, SharpNET expanded its service portfolio to include most forms of digital marketing, including SEO, PPC, Social Media, Conversion Tracking, Content Marketing and Website Design.
Early in 2010, SharpNET launched its own intellectual property software affectionately called SharpReports. SharpReports covers many critical tasks for SharpNET including the creation of our campaign performance reports, sales proposals, customer CRM and many other tasks. SharpReports also made SEO outsourcing possible. SEO Outsourcing was an immediate success for SharpNET, with over 60% of all new SharpNET campaigns originating from our outsourcing programs. Over 50 agencies across the USA outsource SEO to SharpNET. Based on the size of SharpNET, we estimate that SharpReports saves over $15,000 per month in software and subscription fees (like reporting search engine rankings). We pass this savings on to our clients and partners, allowing highly affordable services without compromising quality.
Today, SharpNET services local, national and international digital marketing interests, including businesses ranging from small at-home operations, Fortune 500 corporations and Franchise organizations. We establish long-term, successful relationships with our clients, and prefer quality business relationships over quantity.
SharpNET is recognized as an industry leader and has been cited in many magazines, newspaper articles and radio programs. With thousands of clients served over 18 years, SharpNET continues to maintain an A+ Rating with the BBB. This is representative of our dedication to customer service, loyalty to our outsourcing partners and outstanding bottom-line results.
What Separates SharpNET From the Others?
After 18 years in the industry, SharpNET has seen everything that the internet has to offer. Through the years we have seen many fads come and go with SEO, including link building, blogging, social media, minimalistic/stylish designs, etc. We understand that there is no single “fad” that helps a website rank on the search engines, or to cause someone to buy on a website. We are some of the most experienced marketing and design talents in the world, and we use our vast experiences to produce fantastic outcomes for our clients. We encourage you to contact us and see how we can work together. We would be honored by the opportunity.
