Sydney Ray Design and Marketing is a full-stack agency founded by Sydney Ray who has been online since 1991. Her first introduction to the Internet was through a portal called Prodigy, and then later via Compuserve and AOL. Based on her fascination with the Internet, combined with her love for storytelling, writing and art; she took to website design in the mid 90's and taught herself how to design and hand code websites using Adobe Dreamweaver. She then taught herself to build ecommerce websites in a programming language called Joomla and later using HTML, CSS, MySQL and PHP.
For over 25 years, Sydney has designed and developed hundreds of websites using a variety of custom tools and CMS platforms (Weebly, Shopify) and now focuses solely on building ecommerce, informational-embedded form websites for service based industries and coaching platforms that offer an ecommerce component on the Shopify platform. Her focus over the years has been on startups, and over the last few years has grown to include medium size companies and enterprise-based ecommerce builds with upwards 5,000 - 15,000 products and more.
With her successful track record in wholesale brand representation and manufacturing, sales and marketing; Sydney brings to the table close to 30 years of Business Consulting to every Client her agency works with. She is a member of NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners) and is a co-owner/seed investor in three other online startups that utilize her background, website design and marketing experience and success (www.homeguardprep.com, www.blueprinttosuccess.net and www.sydneyluarca.com, in development).
