Fatima A.

Your All-in-One Website Solutions Provider

Pakistan - Tests: 27 - Portfolio: 18

Setting up a site? Pick your CMS--or don't--and let's go. I can handle both plain HTML/CSS (that includes HTML5/CSS3) websites and Wordpress-based websites. I can install Wordpress, upload and customize your selected theme, customize templates, set up the most important plugins, add pre-existing content, do basic troubleshooting, act as a liaison between you and site developers you may have already hired (being fluent in both Geek and Human!), and make sure you get a shiny new website that's powerful yet simple enough to run all by yourself if you want. Need to fill up your shiny new website with equally shiny content? I'm a versatile writer, editor, and blogger who's full of ideas, handy with Powerpoint and Word (read: presentations, ebooks, infographics) and can even come up with a graphic or two when you need me to. You can hand over your content development, production and management tasks to me knowing they will be done with the utmost dedication and attention to detail--while you focus your energy on other things, like running a business. Got a shiny new website filled with awesome content nobody's visiting? I hear you. And I can help you. I can take a look at your SEO, social media presence, AdWords campaign, email marketing, copywriting and anything else we need to get that ball rolling. You throw the party, let me find the guests. There are some things I won’t touch with a ten-foot pole though: blackhat SEO, blackhat SMM, article spinning, and generally wasting your time, my time, and the customer’s time. --- I'm all about 3 things: Words. Websites. Web Marketing. 1. Words: My first love is wordsmithing: I find the written word seductive and am fascinated by everything about it, from the diversity of meaning it can hold to the impact it can generate and even down to the way strokes of ink are arranged on a page, digital or otherwise. I’ve been interested in creating languages since childhood. The combination of an engineer’s curiosity and something of a pedant’s perfectionism pushed me to pay particular attention to the formal rules that govern how we express ourselves through language while simultaneously trying to find new and better ways to do so. Tasks such as editing, analyzing and proofreading come to me naturally. 2. Websites: I fell in love with the WWW at the tender age of 13, when I made an online news magazine monstrosity back in 2002-2003, created in Microsoft FrontPage using HTML I’d painstakingly learned from Neopets, and hosted on Angelfire. I would rush home every day to fire up my computer, wait for the old 14.4 kbps dial-up modem to connect, then spend long hours working on what fit a prepubescent’s idea of the “front page of the Internet” in the time before Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, and Buzzfeed. Childhood bliss. Three years ago, I decided to take our relationship to the next level, and things have only gotten better since. My standard-issue tools include WordPress and the meat-and-potatoes of frontend development: HTML/CSS/JS. I can also manage servers insofar as they affect website performance, security, and SEO. 3. Web Marketing: This should be “digital marketing”, but alliteration is fun. I never thought I’d be interested in marketing: I’m not some soulless hype machine, I scoffed. So why am I sending out these email newsletters, you ask? Why do I enjoy spending time trying to analyze buyer personas from campaigns covered by the national trade magazine, you wonder? Why do I hear about an interesting new idea or product and instantly start to think about the best ways to persuade more people of its merits? I finally had my coming out in 2012, when I realized my long-time secret love affair with sales funnels, ad campaigns, and marketing tactics was more than just a passing fling. You cannot be a sixteen year old who hoards issues of marketing magazines, re-reading them obsessively, and not be in it over your head. In addition to the usual marketing mix, I can also handle client communications, customer support, and other aspects of customer relations–because great customer service is great marketing. Marketing doesn’t have to be soulless. --- Working with Me: Because I tend to invest myself heavily in the projects that I take up, I prefer to be selective and would rather commit myself to jobs that inspire me on a personal level. I take pride in my work and I enjoy devoting myself to things I can believe in–products, ideas, people, causes.

Russ C.

Russ C.

Senior Technical Author, Microsoft Word and Self-publishing Wizard

Thailand - Tests: 50 - Portfolio: 96

- - - - " He exceeded all expectations”- - - * ...and this is my goal; and, it's one I have succeeded at for the past 4 years here on oDesk/Upwork. You see, not only am I a professional, diligent, and multi-talented author with a proven track record in producing documentation across many industries, but I’m also a Microsoft Word Expert. When you combine this with over 18 years’ experience as a technical author, proof-reader, editor, and self-publishing wizard (the last one more recently), it means I can transform your work to the highest possible professional standards. - - - - “…it is a joy to work on a Word docx file that has been setup properly.”- - - * Recently, in July 2015, a client told me one of their team wasted TWO whole days every single time they had to send a new proposal out (and it still wasn’t right when they sent it). “We are able to create a master doc but we start using bad language once want to do the page numbering etc.” [sic] I have no idea how long they had been doing the same time-wasting, frustrating and hair-pulling process for so long. It took me 5 hours to provide them with a permanent, professional Word document. Subsequently… “Hi Russ, I must admit, it is a joy to work on a Word docx file that has been setup properly. I know I does sound funny when somebody says it is a joy to work with WORD.” [sic] - - - - "Russ was amazing to work with..." - - - - * Another client was kind enough to write: “Russ REALLy knows his stuff. He took a job that was causing us some pain and completed it with an explanatory video.”[sic] As I’m sure you’ll agree, when you are working with a true professional, you get far more than just the promise of top quality results, you get peace-of-mind. - - - - "It was a pleasure to work with you..." - - - - * - Peace-of-mind that allows you to focus on what YOU need to do to build your business - Peace-of-mind about not having to worry about whether your money is being well spent - Peace-of-mind from knowing that you have made the right choice and that you will get what you need, on time, ahead of budget, and of the highest possible quality. - - - - "...if you need someone with Russ' skills, we can't recommend him highly enough." - - - -* As a service provider, I believe in trust, I believe in relationships, and I believe in satisfaction. I have known most of my clients for a long-time – they provide me with repeat work. And, as you well know, this only comes through effective communication, flexibility and, above all, the ability to deliver as promised. - - - - "Exceptional eye to detail."- - - - * Indeed, when reviews include comments like the above (all taken from feedback which is available in full, below), you know that not only are you are making a sound choice, but you're also getting maximum value. But, again, what price can you put on peace-of-mind? How comforting is it to know that you can get on with what YOU should be doing and can leave me to get on with delivering what you need? Today we exist in a global marketplace, and there have never been so many choices open to you. The problem here is that, along with increased choices, comes increased risk: of being let down, of wasting time, of losing money. So, with that in mind... ...why risk it? A native British national, a Word user for 21-years, a designer of professional Word templates for slightly less time than that, I'm also a qualified English Language teacher, have a BA in English Language (1st Class Honours), and guarantee my work 100%. So ALL the risk is on me. - - - -"Russ was perfect for the task (and perfect for most tasks, I'd imagine)" - - - -* When you factor in that I’m an expert with MS Word (and PowerPoint, Excel, and a number of other programs), this means that I know what I'm doing. I don't mess about and I deliver when I say I will. - - - -"Russ communicated very quickly and finished the job very fast!"- - - -* There is a possibility that you have questions for me; and, if you do, please feel free to contact me. It doesn’t matter whether they’re about the work I've done, whether you’re unsure if I can help you or not, or whether you’re just after some advice - if I can help, I will. I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Russ p.s. if you've read this far, thanks. Please note, I'm no graphics designer; if you need graphics doing, do what I do - outsource them! * Quotes are from client feedback on my profile below.

About: Over the past 17 years, I've created well over 4.000 forms of copy, ranging from sales and marketing content, articles, scripts, papers, blogs, and much more. My background is in content, editorial management and finance. In total, I am a 27-year veteran of the business and financial trading markets in the U.S. and abroad, working as a professional trader and thereafter as a corporate copywriter (B2B focus), group editorial director, editor-in-chief, senior financial writer, newsletter editor, strategist and start-up adviser. From the standpoint of differentiating my candidacy, I bring a wealth of knowledge important to any content project. Directly relevant is the fact I've managed myriad forms of content campaigns. I specialize in business/marketing case studies, white papers, website copy, press releases, media pitch campaigns, video scripts, newsletters, web content (e.g., articles and blog postings), and marketing and sales collateral. The subject matter I've focused in over the years spans the gamut, from business, finance and capitalization, marketing, small business management, high tech, lifestyle, personal finance, retirement and estate planning, trading/investing and the markets.

My work has appeared across content mediums ranging from blogs to magazines, websites, newspapers, newsletters, corporate marketing literature and materials, and radio networks. I have appeared on CNBC and Bloomberg TV as a market expert and strategist.

Among that group I'm recognized for being a quick study, delivering sharp/clean/creative copy, adhering to deadlines, exhibiting great communications skills, well representing customers to their clients, and having a knack for consistently surpassing expectations in covering difficult subject matter and delivering information that is both inviting and easily understood by the audience.
