These wonderful humans had some nice things to say about me ❤️
Unlike many writers and marketers that just focus on word count, social shares, or getting traffic, Lashay understands the focus should be on getting conversions from content.She smartly focuses on content strategy and writing from that lens: what keywords and topics can convert the best, and how do I sell and position this product in the piece in a way that will drive as many conversions as possible.That's smart and will get the best ROI for her employers and clients. A ton of businesses would be lucky to have Lashay help them with their content and SEO.
Co-Founder Grow & Convert
In the decade of online marketing experience, I have never encountered a content marketer with the commitment and work ethic of Lashay.Before a single article is written or a single KW is pursued, she dug deep down into my industry to fully understand my ideal client profile.She came up with a bottom of the funnel strategy, which was only rivaled by her top of funnel strategy, ensuring all possible leads could be pursued simultaneously.She understands that sales are the lifeblood of any company and commits full-heartedly to generating leads with the diligence of the company owner.I can honestly say I now better understand my client base because of Lashay’s expertise. There is nobody I trust more than Lashay.
Co-Founder ADA Compliance Pros
Lashay is a brilliant B2B content strategist. She gets it. Every time we chat I nod my head in agreement with her insights and cheer on her ideas. Not a lot of folks in content are comfortable carrying a number, Lashay most certainly is, and that's (part of) what differentiates her from the litany of content consultants out there. She's a rising star in B2B content.
