    Animator + Graphic Designer + Illustrator

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 7

    I have spent the past several years honing my skills as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and animator. Through this process I have developed my work ethic as well as my skill set. Having the opportunity to work with a plethora of companies has taught me how to adhere to strict and timely deadlines, as well as adapt my personal artistic style, and mode of communication to fit the needs of diverse clients. I have created promotional products, animations, packaging, brand concepts, and illustrations just to name a few tasks. I have received consistent positive feedback, and in return I receive back-to-back projects and work on many assignments at any given time. I feel extremely comfortable brainstorming with clients to grasp their complete vision, as well as juggling the projects that I am required to complete. I have the ability to take a clients vision and turn it into a tangible, useable product, or design. This ability and the positive feedback I receive make my job rewarding on a daily basis.

    Attorney at Law

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    My goals are to continue assisting individuals and businesses with fewer than fifty employees address their legal problems, and to continue helping them prevent other legal problems from occurring. I am a lawyer, licensed in California since 1986. During this time, I have represented companies in all phases of their existence. Much of my practice is devoted to helping companies address the range of legal issues and problems that can occur (labor problems, contract disputes, tax and environmental issues, business torts, IP disputes, and the like) through negotiation, arbitration, and litigation. I have also helped businesses draft their initial agreements and organization papers, prepared and reviewed agreements needed for the conduct of their business, and represented them during the sale or winding up of their business. I also work with individuals who wish to represent themselves in resolving a variety of disputes. I help them draft court papers, I coach them on arguments to make to the judge, and I ghost-write letters and settlement documents. This part of my practice is now expanding into assisting other lawyers who have a temporary surplus of work and need experienced assistance. I also have a small trusts, estates, and tax planning practice. I run a "virtual office," meaning nearly all communication will be electronic. For my clients' convenience, I have a San Francisco telephone and fax number. This structure allows me to pass substantial reductions in attorney's fees to my clients, while still providing the quality representation of an experienced and licensed lawyer in California and federal law.

    Direct-Response Copywriter

    United Kingdom - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 5

    If you’re doing business online but aren’t working with a professional copywriter, I guarantee you’re leaving money on the table... Let me show you... “How You Can Add An Endless Stream Of Cash-In-Hand Customers To Your Business Without Spending A Penny More On Advertising” My name’s Joe Atkins. I’m a professional copywriter and one of Upwork’s top-ranked, and most recommended freelancers. As well as being a student of AWAI’s Copywriting Masters program, I’ve also spent hundreds of hours learning from direct-response copywriting legends such as: Gary Halbert, Bob Bly, John Carlton, Dan Kennedy, Clayton Makepeace... just to name a few. Copywriting is not just my job. It’s a passion that I live and breathe. And thanks to the experience I’ve gained, my results have been stellar... * A sales letter I wrote for a dog grooming company brought in 33 new long-term clients, resulting in over $62,000 in revenue the same year. * An email series I wrote in the internet marketing niche brought in $23,000 during a five-day promo. * One client experienced a 20% increase in sales after I rewrote their website content. * A sales letter a client paid me $250 to write has brought him over $35,000 in sales in one year. To put it briefly: If you want a sales letter that generates a massive amount of sales... webcopy so compelling readers can’t take their eyes off the page... and emails that convert like crazy, then you’ve come to the right place. Stop fumbling around in the dark playing the guessing game, changing your website, then guessing again. There are better - more effective - ways to spend your time and money... ... After all, the more time you burn trying to get it right, the more money that slips between your fingers. Let a tried-and-tested, sales producing copywriter handle your copy... it’s the smart thing to do (that’s if you’re serious about your business). "Once again Joe over delivered! I have paid 5x as much for sales letters that don't even come close to the quality of Joe's! The best copywriter on oDesk period." -- Jeff Brokaw Why You Should Hire Me To Write Your Sales Copy * I’m deadly serious about copywriting. It’s my livelihood and passion. I’ve invested both time and money into learning my craft and keeping up to date with current selling strategies. * I’ve built a rock-solid reputation on Upwork as a top copywriter, and if you think I’d jeopardize it by producing sloppy work for you, you’re crazy! (Fun fact: I’ve never had a dissatisfied client. Not one. Check my feedback.) * My skillset is not limited to writing copy. I’m also trained in creating profit-pulling sales funnels (so you can maximise the amount you make per customer), and mapping out product launches. Here’s how we’ll work together to transform your site into a profit generating machine... 1. Contact me. Send me a message here on Upwork and let me know what you need and when you need it by. I’ll slot you into my schedule and give you a completion date - typically 5 - 10 days, depending on how big the project is and my current workload. If you need a job completed urgently (within 3 days), then I can do this for a 50% surcharge... ... I charge more for urgent jobs because I have postpone other paying projects, work nights/weekends, or spend time away from my family. 2. Provide me with requisite information. I’ll need access to your product and current marketing material if you have any. If not, I’ll send you a client questionnaire that, once filled out, will provide me with everything I need to get started. 3. Send over the contract with your payment funded in escrow. 4. Relax while I take care of things. Once I’ve received the information I need, I’ll begin working. I’ll pore over what you’ve sent me, and begin researching your target audience in great detail. This includes: dissecting ads that have been previously successful, monitoring online forums where your market congregates, so I can learn the jargon they use and familiarize myself with their pain and frustrations, coming up with new ideas to grab their attention and gain their loyalty for your company. Once I’ve completed my research, I’ll begin writing your sales material. 5. First draft & final payment. I’ll send you the first draft and you’ll release my payment from escrow. My service comes with two rounds of revisions, free of charge, so this is where you’ll let me know whether you want anything tweaking. 6. Profit! Now, as my profile is so highly ranked on Upwork, I receive job invitations on a daily basis. As a result, my schedule can get very busy, so I’d urge you to contact me today if you’d like to work with me. Get in touch. Your bank account will thank you later. Joe

    Copywriter and Online Marketing Specialist

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 9

    Too often, online marketers get caught up in chasing the next fad. But doing more business online is, at the heart of it, very similar to doing more business offline. Relationships are what's important, and hacks and tricks only go so far. I'm not your ordinary freelancer. I sometimes describe myself as "a writer who's not afraid of numbers." My drive to understand the written word and the world of business has given me an unusual collection of experiences and skills: -I'm an experienced copywriter who has created sales letters and other marketing materials for businesses several industries. -I'm a Google Partner, with certification in AdWords, Bing, and Google Analytics. I've successfully managed PPC programs with monthly spend ranging from under $1,000 to close to $45,000. I've also designed and run website split testing programs for clients. ***Please note that my rate for PPC is $50/hour.**** -In the past, I worked in publishing as a writer and editor for about 10 years, giving me a solid grounding in proper editorial procedures and standards, what materials sell, and the financial considerations involved in publishing a book. I've found that a lot of the business skills I've learned in this world are highly transferable to other industries. -I've been managing my own web-based businesses on the side since 2003. To any project, I bring a drive for thoroughness, patience, good judgment, and a deep investment in seeing my clients meet and exceed their goals. Your success is my success. I constantly test and look for data to support decisions. For my clients' ultimate benefit, I constantly seek out new learning opportunities (conferences, webinars, workshops, etc...). Finally, I'm highly dependable: I'm very selective about the commitments I make to insure that when I do take on a project I not only meet my responsibilities but hopefully knock it out of the park. I'm most interested in projects that allow me to work with a website's marketing needs in a holistic manner. Rather than push the particular solutions I can personally offer, such as AdWords or a content marketing campaign, I much prefer to analyze the needs of that particular business and come up with a plan that will address what's most needed, in the most effective way. If I don't think that a certain marketing technique will work well for you, I'll tell you so. I also work best with clients who understand that good results take time. I audit the work of others frequently, and have seen the consequences of going for the quick win without attention to long-term profitability. Sample Results (see also portfolio section below): -Created an extensive remarketing program with the highest ROI in an individual campaign at over 800%. For this client I have also been successful at cutting spend (in the case of one campaign as much as 88%) while maintaining sales. -Another client brought me on board to see if a display campaign set up by a previous consultant could be optimized further. When auditing the campaign I identified changes to the targeting that led to a 600% increase in leads. -I improved the click-through-rate (CTR) of an assisted living facility by 1700%, while halving the cost per click and raising the average position. -Through testing, I achieved ad-level CTRs as high as 12.28% (average 2.56%) for a WordPress developer. These results are for non-branded keywords. Client Comments (see also oDesk reviews): "Just took a look inside the account. You've really turned around the conversion rate. Thanks again for the great work on this." "I really appreciate your weekly reports, and how you provide a different perspective on the account's performance and what can be improved each time." "Your audit and keyword research has been extremely helpful to us in thinking about our business." [This client, a web developer, liked my analysis so much that they've hired me to provide the same service for their own clients.] "Thanks for the detailed report. This is a great start. Today we had 3 leads come in within 1h and 30m. That is highly unusual." I'd be delighted to discuss your online marketing program and what I can do to help.
