Hey there – I’m Ashley, the founder of Dash of Social!

My team and I work with entrepreneurs like you to create and execute results-driven marketing strategies that develop an online presence, establish credibility, and build a community so that people know WHO you are and WHY they should give you their money.

In the business world, there is a lot of NOISE around marketing…

With so many podcasts, blogs, webinars, and more to consume, it can be overwhelming. And how do you know that what you’re learning can actually be applied to your business for its ultimate success? You don’t.

But what if I told you that I once was in the exact same place that you’re in now? Let me explain…

In 2012, I started a fashion and lifestyle blog at the age of 15 (yes, 15…!) after years of wanting to blog. Growing up in the digital world, I knew how to use social media as a PERSON - but what I really needed to learn was how to use it as a BRAND.

So, being the #workaholic that I am, I read all the books, I watched all the trainings, I observed all the experts, I tested all the strategies… and finally, it worked. I created a social media presence that consistently drove people to my blog and ENGAGED them. (Keyword: engaged. You don’t know how happy I was when someone who was a “stranger” commented on one of my posts rather than a family member!)

The growth of my blog pushed me to become a microinfluencer and work with various companies. But what I realized about many of these companies at the time is that they weren’t using social media as best as they could - and I felt like I had to do something about it.

So… I did.

I worked with these companies to build social media strategies. I managed their platforms. I provided marketing advice. And I watched their brands GROW while thinking to myself, “Hey, it looks like I may actually know a thing or two about this so-called marketing game!”

My newfound passion paired with these results led me to dive into freelance marketing gigs, at the age of 17. I casually worked with a few clients here and there until my mom, the most amazing woman ever, was suddenly diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme - Grade IV brain cancer - in January 2016.

Her diagnosis made me realize that life is SHORT and the best time to follow your dreams is NOW - so I decided to do the damn thing and officially launched Dash of Social in September 2016, at the age of 19. To me, it was either all or nothing - and I worked hard to make my favorite person proud while growing my business up until her passing away in June 2018.

Throughout my time of doing this whole marketing thing, I’ve worked with entrepreneurs in many industries with various levels of experience…

check

Those who have absolutely no online presence and feel as though they have no idea what they’re doing

check

Those who are posting here and there on social media but know they need to be doing more

check

Those who have engaged in multiple marketing outlets consistently but just need to make a few tweaks to their overall strategy to really hit a homerun

So, the amount of experience you have doesn’t matter - what DOES matter is there are a few things you may be feeling…

check

OVERWHELMED by all of the marketing outlets you need to consider

check

STRETCHED THIN by how much time marketing takes and how little spare time you have

check

CONFUSED by your lack of results online

Whether you’re feeling one of these things or all three, know that you’ve come to the right place and you’re in good hands here - because my team and I would love to support you in taking your business to the next level.

Schedule a time to chat with me so we can take a deep dive into your needs and wants and create a solid game plan - and we promise we’ll be your biggest cheerleaders every step of the way.
