Guild is a platform purpose-built for professional groups, networks and communities to connect, communicate and collaborate.
We’re passionate about helping community creators grow communities of expertise of the highest quality, integrity and value.
We protect your privacy and believe in high standards of:
User experience - simple, elegant design; no adverts; mobile-first; service and support; custom branding
Professional conduct - moderation features; professional profiles so users are `present` and accountable; audit trail of conversations
Data protection - no personal data to third parties; no ads; privacy by design; GDPR compliance; you control your data
What about LinkedIn?
Fine for recruiters, job seekers and sales.
But lots of ads, lots of noise, big and bland.
When was the last time you got value out of a LinkedIn group?
Surrender control, ownership, data value...
...every user click, like, comment or message provides Facebook with more and more data for behavioural targeting and ads.
How private and professional does that feel?
Why not use WhatsApp?
Apart from the fact it isn`t legal for professional use?
The lack of profiles, poor search, no separation of work/personal life, no threading, poor privacy, can`t edit/delete messages, no admin features for businesses to manage groups etc. etc.
If it`s for professional use, it`s very risky to use WhatsApp.
How about Slack then?
Slack is designed for workflow collaboration in teams, not networks or communities. It is about productivity and utility not connection.
Slack’s pricing model makes it very expensive for communities.
Many find Slack overly complex, overwhelming or impersonal.
Emails get lost. Social media gets too noisy. Guild uses the immediacy and intimacy of messaging but to engage in a professional way.
