Our Process

LISTEN

Learning about your organization, understanding your products and services, and getting to know who your clients are is the first step in creating a successful marketing strategy. We believe in developing a strong and lasting relationship with your organization to provide you with strategies that are relevant, valuable, and timely to your company.

CRAFT

Whether we have created a strategy for you or you have developed your own, we provide the best tools in the market designed to attract new clients, increase retention rate, highlight your products and services, and move your organization ahead of the competition

DELIVER

One of our greatest passions is keeping your project on budget and seeing a quality product delivered on time. We manage every piece of your project from pre-production to delivery to ensure that you are getting the highest quality. Our team strives to provide the best customer service in the industry, defining who we are

At Gilday Creative, one of our core principals is giving back to the community we live in.

Be it in our local Hudson Valley community, or to a national community that cares about bettering our world. We believe that we are only as good as to what we give back, because that makes us who we are. The founders and staff of Gilday Creative regularly volunteer their time and talents to make our towns and community a better place… to live, to help a dog or cat find a home, to raise funds for the underprivileged… the list goes on.

We also provide a deeply discounted non-profit rate to clients that qualify, because we understand that the funds they work so hard to raise should go toward helping their cause, not toward administrative costs.

Below are just a few not-for-profits that we believe in and support...

What People Are Saying

Gilday Creative saved the day when our web project went awry. They were able to take the materials that had frustrated a committee for six months and turn it into a website that pleased everyone...in THREE WEEKS. Having worked with a number of web designers and companies, I can't express in words how amazing that is - an absolutely amazing finished product, live, in less than a month. That's above and beyond any reasonable expectations, and was delivered with a smile. I felt they truly cared about our organization and its mission instead of just the job we paid them to do. Gilday Creative is the best design team I've ever worked with.Shana Ross, Vili and Ve Solutions
Having Sheila work on my personal brand was fantastic. They captured my spirit in such a visual way and in one look it accomplishes how I help people through my own developed style of life coaching.Deborah Cohen, Peaceful Thunder Life Coaching
When I started my job, I knew nothing about web site management. Sheila helped us get the new website up and running and more importantly, she took the time to teach me enough about WordPress to edit the website myself. It was a bit challenging at first, but with Sheila’s constant encouragement, gentle guidance and never ending patience, I gained the confidence to actually make changes myself. Most recently, I was able to edit the website while on the phone with my boss – much to his delight and surprise! Not only does she make our website look good, she makes my job much easier. Astrid Bernard, Cancer Support Community of Southern Connecticut
Working with Gilday Creative has been such a pleasure! They really listen to who we are and what we do. Then, they take all the information we throw at them, work their magic, and VOILA! We now have a website that's sharp, easy to navigate, and really showcases who we are, and campaign marketing materials that reflect our style and portray our message in a streamlined, elegant way. Thank you so much.Su Marcy, Vice President, United Way of Ulster County
