Service review for Chiefly.

Ashton Deroy Writes: I am actually sorry this has to go up at all. “LOL JK I love these catty service reviews!”  

If you don’t know and you are wondering. “What is the Queer Brand Experience?” Relax, it is mostly a gay guy behind his keyboard shit talking a ton of brands on the internet & messing with people. 

“I am still concerned”, You might say out of stress. Listen I shut this down over the advice from the same guy who told me I shouldn’t start my own business, that people paying for my service was disturbing, & that I didn’t have enough skill. 

To him I say, “Search my name b*****!” I show up, do you? I don’t care. 

Review is for

  1. Cheefly, A failed Marijuana interest blog 
  2. Buyer: Ashton Deroy, Store manager of Bongs-R-Us
  3. Cost: $27 CAD

So maybe this bad review is partially my fault. I know what I expected from an internet ad vendor, but I definitely didn’t get what I wanted from Cheefly. 

Here is the summarized experience: 

  1. Purchasing the ad buy & asking for help with content production, No content suggestions were made. LocalSEODude does not care about this forum, it has no identity he just wants you to turn in content like a library book.
  2. No suggestions were made for edit, internet ad sales are kind of automated now. So people who have never done it forget that this is a part of the package. 
  3. He forgot to Backlink, he either forgot to upsell me additionally for the backlink or the idiot just forgot! “I am sorry are you not Local SEO dude?” 
  4. No Traffic! , If I had looked at this forum I would see it was abandoned because the owner does not care. 

What I did wrong? I am pretty eager to get my team paid. So on Fiverr admittedly I didn’t check on his work before approving payment. I should have made him revise the pitch. Then sadly Fiverr doesn’t let you rate them during the service part of the purchase. From there I had to speak up. 

The good part from this? Queer Brand Experience made a guest appearance on the Ashton Deroy web page 🙂

I just wanted to share more of the spirit of Toronto Pride today. So all day I will be uploading photo & video content to my LGBTQ+ resource hub.

Well we are actually toying with making this the place for the starter company ad agency. We already have the website infrastructure in place and this is one of the higher rated projects I run on WordPress so it just seems like this could work out really well. 

Right now we are up to something like 40 subscribers in our global circulation and I am really enthused about the global community relationships I have been working to build.

As far as social media goes, I just filter all my home grown projects through my name now. So be sure to like my page on Facebook below. Thank you for reading, subscribe, comment or email, ashtonderoy@gmail.com

Hey, so you’ve connected to my webspace because there is a lot to see. I am an ex-ad salesperson with an adventurous entrepreneur’s spirit & a tech support person’s continuing curiosity. I often get asked, how did you begin your journey as a designer? Believe it or not, I am not going to talk about college here. I actually used to organize the bulletin boards of promotional music for Riverside Music in 2013-2014. 

Riverside music.jpg

It was actually here when I was a punk kid where my manager told me she thought I had the spirit of an artist. Of course, I disregarded it, pretended it was just something older people said to teenagers. Was she ever right though? Her name was Maggie and she gave me the best co-op experience I’ve ever had high school or college. 

When we were struggling with our home lives in 2013, Maggie would invite us to after-school events at the Riverside Music. So I and my brother could escape to the sound of music and remember for a minute, we are just teenagers. The weight of the world does not need to be on our shoulders. Amongst the artists/musicians & the counterculture youth groups was always where my brother & I felt most at home. As two gay youth in the small town of Quinte West.

Kid sister painted for me

 

Written by Ashton Deroy

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. 

This is currently being used on my YouTube channel.

Then we will discuss the mythological art work of Diana the Dragon Queen.

We can lastly discuss painful business presentations and pitches. Concluding with three pieces of advice on delivering a memorable pitch and not delivering a pitch that projects a gross lack of confidence. Might refer to Cassie in 2014 and her awful Trendstalk presentation at St. Lawrence college.

 


Podcast promo

Podcasts are the medium of the future. If you are a Seneca College student you should learn how to create content using sound stories. These can help make you a subject matter expert, allow you to flaunt your high conversational skills and discuss important topics. In the past me and my closest friends have used podcasts as a tool for comedy, pretending to have a radio show and communicating with other players’ of video games. 

“I personally believe Podcasts give you more power to tell a story than video really can.” – Ashton Deroy 

Book Club review: Crazy is My Super Power!

Crazy is my Super power review

I read this book to learn about AJ Lee’s struggle with bipolar disorder, learn about her life as a wrestler and the challenges of a female wrestler. This book covers her journey from a child in a low income area to her journey in to adulthood. The themes I have noticed in this book are women being reduced to sex objects in the workplace and in athletics, finding success well struggling with a mental illness & following your dreams against the common perceptions.

AJ Lee as champion
“To me I wasn’t playing crazy, I was discovering my superpower” AJ Mendez Brooks

Everyone pictures wrestlers as these 6 foot five gods or these sex symbols in the case of women. Never the less they are expected to be the exaggerated perfect media images of men & women. AJ Lee was an incredible wrestler without being too overly sexualized, glamorized or put in a atypical box for women in wrestling. She is 5 ft 2 and could kick your head off & keep you entertained without being what you would expect. 

I think her dedication and spontaneous behavior is part of what made her such a special wrestler to me. In 2010 to 2015 when I followed her career I was living with my brother on & off when we watched her on the TV we were always entertained. Although it is not a detraction from the story I would of loved to hear AJ Lee talk about working with Vickie Guererro. Just because they are both highly influential Hispanic women in the WWE Universe and their television rivalry was tremendously entertaining from rivaling valets to an actual gimmick match. Me and my brother were hooked to this rivalry. 

Should you buy this book? If AJ Lee was as captivating to you as she was to me, absolutely. If you are not a wrestling fan, I am sorry to say this is not the book for you. Yes the story is mainly appealing if you remember the key moments of AJ’s career the way we do. From her being in Natalya’s stable, to the boyfriend drama, to the excitement of her valet story and becoming a multiple time champion!
