Get on a website like mine. Click the picture above or email firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about my basic publishing plan. An integrated hub is crucial for sales, creating a communications channel hub & starting your online presence. My presence has exploded in the past 2-5 years. Since becoming a web & graphics designer I now work at an ad agency, I still run my own practice and I am involved in a grass roots political movement.
I also work with amazing writers now like Ryley. Also I have an amazing business partner in Diana Skye. When you start working online your whole life can definitely change. So what are you waiting for?
My kid sister wanted to put something up on the website. As I said it is good to put things on your website that makes you happy. I often miss my family back home in Quinte West, but I am glad I have this painting to remind me of them. If they read this I love them and I can’t wait to see them next. Posted from North York Ontario 6:08am 5/31/2018.
Today on 6/3/2018 I modified the art to get it digitally ready. The thing about a good piece of art is that it is never truly finished. I love the painting but I knew I could make it digitally great. Thanks so much Ashley you know I love working with you.
I just want to encourage entrepreneurs and creative professionals to check out my friends from the United Kingdom. This is Blog Process, they interviewed me in March before I took a job in a marketing firm. Definitely check out the form, they have featured entrepreneur’s, articles written by real pros and tech talk.
When you are doing a digital media campaign for a brand what do you need to do? you need to decide who to target. I would say the most important target factors to consider are geography & age. The rest is all just gravy, especially if you approach your marketing from a 0 sales perspective. Here is some advice for creating a target audience from the 0 sales perspective.
Shotgun your strategy – Fire everywhere because you do not know who your brand appeals hit the hardest. So just fire everywhere until you catch someone.
Prepare to learn – I thought my biggest appeal for my own business with my first customer was quick website setup. It actually was English speaking, website setup. It is always good to be prepared to change your thinking.
How do they talk to you about your brand? – You need to know what people already think and develop your message from there. Not some imaginary start point irrelevant to where you are. Despite what you might think about Marketing it is not magical brain washing. If you have not talked to any potential customers yet in person… What the hell are you doing? Get off your computer and do it!
Hit global targets online, local targets in person – This is what I hate about Facebook, I have never gotten a Boosted post to target an American or UK audience. I do not want to hit local targets online. Since I had a Nintendo Wii I wanted to use the web to connect with a global audience. When I first started my business I forgot that. Thanks to Fiverr I remembered. If you do not plan on personal sales at all. Your business will go under, that is a fact not a suggestion.
Learn how they use technology – For example everyone I know reads my website on their phone & link through Facebook. That is why I make my website mobile adaptive and keep my Facebook content active.

Hi I am Ashton Deroy, thank you for checking out my resources for small web-based business management. What is the purpose of this lesson? We want people to stop focusing on creating small business brands. Instead, do what I do and create personal selling brands. Why am I not charging for these lessons? That is because the small business owners I am doing this for cannot afford my services. This does not mean they can not have effective sales campaigns.
These resources are created with the value that you do not need $1,000 in capital to start an effective small business. They are created with the knowledge that branding does not make sales for a brand. That actually creating sales rapport, doing direct marketing campaigns and owning your consumer’s time is the best way to generate sales and long lasting customer relationships. If you have any questions about any of these resources please go to resources below the sections and I will guide you with personalized advice.
We also do not dismiss the power of web-based communications. Only acknowledge that content should be a tool for globally targeted communications, not locally targeted. On 4/21/2018 Ashton Deroy was interviewed by Blog Process in the United Kingdom. This is an example of Ashton Deroy changing his digital marketing approach to be more globally focused.
It would be a lot easier to get your business if I sat here and lied to you for 30 hyperlinks. If I said “Hiring me would make your business automatically make money and you’d never need to work a real job again.” It would also be entirely misleading, also if this were true I really should work on a commission selling your products. I am not going to do that because the truth of the matter is I am absorbing the risk for my business and I don’t want the risk for your own business. I also am partnered with a drop shipping business, called TeaWithTracy.
If you want easy sales training with cheap inspiration. Go listen to the ladies at Mary Kay & Avon lie their asses off to you. If you want the truth about the market, the decline of major social networks and falling consumer incomes. You are now in the right place. I don’t play Barbie’s dream shop, I have a real marketing shop online, I train real junior sales associates/graphic artists and a real writer.
Section 1: Launching your campaign, finding key networks & getting the work done.
Media planning – These are the key considerations in launching your digital marketing and sales campaign.
Tools you need to be on in 2018– From connecting with Graphics Designers to Cloud Storage and Promotional printing tools. These are your marketing must-have tools for running your online shop.
Tell your story – I have been accused of oversharing my personal story on the web. That is the best way to teach storytelling, however. I tell a no holds barred version of my story in that link.
Less is more – Less sales promotion, More conversations. In 2015 Ashton worked with a very intelligent woman named Dina in the Interactive Marketing Communications program at St. Lawrence College. It was there we developed the theory that brands on the web needed to focus more on customer engagement and less on constant focus on conversion and sales.
Shitty jobs – the Internet has never been just about selling stuff. It has been about entertaining the unconventional audience. In this Ashton Deroy plays a man who works as an outhouse cleaner. Alana Skye plays a crazy chick who is a PI or just a stalker… Who knows actually?
Dating Advice with Diana & Diana’s Sister – Make up a story, try to stick to it.When the story is fake, it becomes more difficult to stick to. Strive for authenticity. More importantly, have fun with it. The professional blog and website will likely keep your audience’s attention for under 5 minutes. If they have fun on your website, there is more potential for relationship building.
Section 7: The methods of Marketing, Integrating the campaign
For this section, I am going to link you to the Client Brief I submit as my Integrated Marketing Project in 2018 to my professor at Seneca College. The client I chose was TD Bank and I show how they tied their experiential marketing campaign with their YouTube video content that was also used as a television commercial.
You wrote the worst Marketing book I have ever had recommended to me by a Marketing professor I highly respect. Seth Godin’s All Marketers are Liars Storytellers is one of the worst books I have ever read. I thought if he can write this piece of crap and sell it a little under $20. I can create a resources index for free. I am thankful everyday I can save people the money for going out, buying that crappy book and being bored out of their skull. At least writing about digital Marketing I can write about a relevant topic and give real helpful advice and hyperlinks to important tools.
Thank you for being a jackass with an over-inflated ego
Oh I am sorry do you want more? To start most of these businesses are not needs based businesses. Meaning the behavior of your customers are too unpredictable to depend on. Secondly what if the platform changes? Or what if the digital method of converting customers change? The answer is no, it is not “you never know!” Dumbest platitude you hear about businesses that are not needs based operations. Just no do not loan finance your business.
Here is how a $1,000 loan looks in these common repayment time frames from a bank at an interest of 25% compounded monthly:
I = J/M .25/12 = 0.02083333333333333333333333333333
N= 12 per year. 12 * 1 , 12 * 2 , 12 * 3
PV * (I+1) ^ 12
PV * (I+1) ^ 24
PV * (I+1) ^ 36
1 year of the loan principal unpaid, $1,280.68
2 years of the loan principal unpaid, $1,640.14
3 years of the loan principal unpaid, $2,100.50 (Three years to double the principal amount) Is it clear this is a scam?
Do not start a recreational business on a small business loan, capital or anything else.Don’t even put it on a credit card. I am serious! Unless you want to lose your business, go bankrupt or any other wonderful thing. Do not do it!
I wish I could go to the lady who was starting my bank loan application in 2015 for a business I should not of wanted and yelled “NO!” in her face for even suggesting it. Web Marketing businesses are terrible to take a loan out on. I’ve met small business owners in Canada who think their Facebook page is their website. Plus people are kind of going the do it yourself direction. So I was aiming for an outdated profession.
Do not start with debt or capital. Start with a hobby and grow organically! Financing a creative, or hobby business is actually a lot like financing a bachelors in Art. Just do not do it! Waste of money & time.
How can I tell you guys that you need to create a story for your shop without telling my own story? That is my specialty I love stories!
