We provide a wide range of services; such as brand marketing, business planning and mentor-ship, and covering areas as simple as email marketing.

Fly As Day:

I started out building and creating MySpace pages for independent record companies during the time MySpace was popular and in demand. Indie labels would pay me $1,200 for standard pages and $2,800 for pages that contained motion graphics and musical intros. I charged an additional monthly fee of $450 for “ghosting” which is operating (fan engaging, music and photo updating) the page for the label’s artist. Our operation had grown to over 120 accounts nationwide, in which we had a team of 7 to “ghost” monitoring multiple accounts per day.

Summer 2015, I decided to make a career out of social media. Once I reached a point where I made money on a monthly basis, it was at that moment it became a lucrative career move!
