About Ysmay

a digital strategist who is in love with Downton Abbey, gangsta rap, and yoga.

Tattooed erotic artist turned digital strategist.

You’re craving freedom.

You’re tired of working for other people.

You know you can have more, but you don’t know where to begin.

You don’t want to hire someone every time you need to make a change to your website, launch a product, or tweak your email marketing.

You want someone who can educate and empower you to take charge.

You’re in luck because that’s exactly what I do!

I’m passionate about empowering emerging entrepreneurs to create digital strategies that move them forward.

I’ve done a lot of things over the years — including teach yoga, paint, and manage coffee shops — but I’ve always come back to web design.

I started building websites as a way to put myself through college back in 1999. It was never meant to be my career, but it stuck!

There’s something about being able to see something come to life with just a few keystrokes that really excites the creator in me.

It wasn’t long before web design turned into digital strategy. I believe a website without a strategy is useless. It’s just a glorified business card.

I came to yoga as a way to overcome my nervous system disorder, and became totally hooked. I started my yoga website as a hobby site as a way to share yoga with others. I didn’t mean to create a business, but thanks to my digital strategy, 42Yogis took off. I went from zero to 14k viewers in 24hrs within 2 weeks of the site being up.

At the time I was the Director of Digital Strategy for a startup in London, and left to strike out on my own, help people learn yoga, and help emerging entrepreneurs use digital strategies to create a business that lights them up.

But what the hell is a digital strategist, anyway?

A digital strategist identifies new goals, or goals that are unmet, and puts together a strategy to help you reach them using digital marketing techniques.

I believe digital strategy shouldn’t only be for those with deep pockets, so I give away a ton of my knowledge for free here on my site and my podcast, and I offer affordable digital strategy trainings through my premium content.

Here on Ysmay.com I share about web design, business strategies, and more.
