The Classified Design, LLC was created by co-founders Ashlee Sides and Joanna Hudson in 2017, over a glass of rosé.

Both being bloggers and creatives, they wanted to turn their passions into a business that would allow them the freedom to do what they love everyday, and would also help fellow bloggers or small business owners take their business to the next level.

Having designed their own websites for the last few years, they know that a successful business starts with an eye-catching website. But, having the site of your dreams, especially when on a budget, can be difficult, and that is where The Classified Design comes in. 

Providing affordable packages or a-la-carte services, Ashlee and Joanna can help you bring your vision and website to life.

Ashlee and Joanna met years ago at work and quickly bonded over a love of blogging, designing websites, & exchanging social media tips!

Both have managed social media accounts for different businesses & have been in charge of social media marketing for 15 years.

Ashlee is from San Diego, loves all things beachy, & has always dreamed of a job where she would work from anywhere with palm trees, & has a strong passion for saving animals and the planet.

Joanna traveled to Italy to complete her Economics degree & a switch flipped.
She decided she couldn’t return and work in a cubicle. She needed a job with the freedom to work remotely.

Both looked for a way to utilize their skills to create jobs they wanted when they finally, over a glass of rosé decided to create the job they wanted & launch their own business!

The Classified Design, LLC was born & brought out their passion for helping people reach their goals & grow their business!

After launching, they found a need in the community wasn’t being filled.
Some businesses didn’t have the budget to hire a social media manager but wanted to pay for training and one on one coaching to learn the skills to effectively run their own social media channels.

They discussed teaching in person classes and quickly realized there was a greater need & a larger audience that needed help.
Again, they had an aha! moment & knew the answer was developing & creating an online course that taught the most effective tools to help businesses grow through social media & increase sales.
And The Classified Social Media E-Course was started!
