the studio

I’m Ashley, and my addiction to Googling random things is almost as strong as my addiction to the beach. That addiction has lead me to create Sandy Lotus, a design and marketing studio that helps free spirited entreprenuers improve their online presence and rankings on search engines. This internet success starts with a brand that speaks to the souls of your audience. And ends with a website that solves all of the problems they never knew they had. You’re building a brand that makes others lives better. And I am here to do the same for you.

Together we will:

  • Build a brand draws in your dream customers and connects to them on a new level.
  • Set you up with a gorgeous, marketable, and user friendly website that sells.
  • Optimize your site with content that speaks to your audience and ranks on search engines (SEO).

A Bit About Me

When I work with a new client, I dive deep into their likes, dislikes, thoughts, and goals. Since I ask them to share their stories, it’s only fair that I share mine. First, I’m a native Jersey girl, raised to work hard and help others. At the same time, I was taught to embrace life and reward yourself for your hard work. Sandy Lotus has given me the freedom do what I love everyday AND allots me extra time enjoy my other passions. That is my goal for you. But first, we need to get to know each other more.
