    Accomplished Online Marketing, Growth Strategy & Operations Expert

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

    I know first-hand how to craft successful brands and profitable businesses. Starting with a few hundred dollars and no marketing budget, the company I founded achieved a million dollars in sales in its first year and continued to expand, generating tens of millions in revenue. As CEO, I was responsible for leading everything from sales and marketing, web development, and operations to personnel management and award-winning product development. As my company grew as a leading manufacturer, distributor and retailer of consumer electronics and software, the company also acquired several distressed online businesses and reinvigorated these brands with new products, marketing, and distribution. These refocused businesses again began to grow and flourish. Having cultivated a successful corporation with global reach, the company was acquired in 2013 by private capital buyers. I'm now helping numerous businesses from start-ups to $100M+ organizations understand how to grow their online traffic and brand engagement, achieve their online performance goals, and efficiently integrate their online & offline operations. As a multi-year Inc. 5000 CEO, I am an intuitive, driven leader with diverse functional experience, strategic mindset, and a tenacious commitment to the utmost excellence in people, performance, products, and processes. I offer a proven ability to swiftly analyze and execute key business drivers to grow top line and increase operational efficiency in a fast-paced environment. I'm known as being relentlessly focused on strategic business process improvement and value creation for all stakeholders. Areas of Excellence • Entrepreneurial Leadership • Online Marketing through Cost Per Click, Email Automation and Inbound Marketing Tactics Including Search Engine Optimization, Public Relations, Affiliate Programs and Social Media • Ecommerce • Conversion Rate Optimization Utilizing Analytics Analysis, Split Testing, & Other User Experience Measurement Tools • Website Development and Launch • Business Processes, Strategy and Optimization • Marketing/Operational Strategy, Development, Data Analysis & Action Planning • Online Sales and Content Platform Development • Automating and Outsourcing Routine and Complex Tasks • Team Building • Deal Negotiation and Strategic Partnerships • Customer Service Protocols REACH YOUR TARGET MARKET Are your online marketing efforts falling flat? If you're unsure about how to reach out to and engage with your target market, you're not alone. Developing a measurable and scalable, truly effective marketing campaign requires a highly-specialized, comprehensive understanding of SEO, PPC marketing, social media, email platforms, and analytics that most businesses don't have the time or resources to develop. With my experience helping businesses reduce cost per acquisition and increase conversion rates by up to 50%, I will help you create and implement a cohesive online marketing strategy, scalable campaign and an engaging message that reaches true potential buyers. ACHIEVE WEBSITE PERFORMANCE GOALS You shouldn't have to adjust your business to fit your software. Your software should fit your business. Publishing and ecommerce platforms such as Magento or Wordpress can be easy to use, but your business is unique. These platforms allow for customization that is impractical for those who would rather be building their business than learning how to build websites and analyze conversion metrics. By spearheading the development of revolutionary front- and back-end features that offered robust usability and advanced functionality, my company thrived as an efficient, multi-million dollar corporation. I can help amplify your company's online experience, from developing custom search algorithms and customer loyalty programs to automated order management processes that vastly improve transparency and reduce processing times. I will analyze and implement ways to improve your customer experience and site performance, helping you convert more of your existing traffic into leads/customers. GET MORE DONE WITH LESS Often, staff are forced to spend much of their time on administrative or repetitive tasks, leaving significantly less time to focus on their primary responsibilities and strengths. Thoughtful, skilled business process optimization can pinpoint ways for streamlining and automating processes to relieve bottlenecks, maximize efficiency, and prevent costly and time-consuming errors by up to 90%. I will help you dramatically lower costs and increase productivity through tailored innovations such as inventory management systems, creating key management metrics, and utilizing qualified outsourced labor.

    Senior Drupal developer - EU (responsive sites, consulting)

    Lithuania - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

    My major interest is Drupal development and only Drupal development. I'm concentrated on the exact CMS as I believe that one can be a real professional in only one applied area. That's the reason why I deal with Drupal, HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, and Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign for more than 7 years in a row and do my best to meet the client's requirements. I have an eye on design as well coding skills coupled with broad knowledge of best modern UX practices, it makes a perfect combination for PSD to Drupal service taken to the next level in comparison to most other similar services out there. I do use Drupal at its best and utilize the power of template engines, Drupal hooks, and popular contributed modules to deliver the templates which are easy to use and maintain. All templates of mine come as Drupal field based solutions where you don't need to know even a bit of HTML to manage your content and its look and feel. It makes back-end management UI extremely user friendly and front-end output as bullet proof and predictable as provided PSD, only in HTML/CSS/JS flesh and Drupal blood. Also all templates are QA tested for cross browser compatibility (down to IE9), as well as retina and responsive readiness. Check out www.idealabs.eu for more details.

    Germany - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 4

    I am an Irish web designer and online business consultant, currently living and working in Berlin. I am passionate about helping small businesses and startups achieve their business goals; whether through building ecommerce and service websites that perfectly serve your online needs, or using data and analytics to optimise online marketing strategies and maximise your resources. My skills have been acquired through over a decade of personal, hands-on experience. It was while working as a freelance fashion photographer in Dublin some ten years ago that I realised I was enjoying coding my website and learning online marketing strategies more than the actual photo shoots! I retrained as a social media strategist and Google Analytics consultant, and gradually honed my knowledge and skills until I became Director of Ecommerce for an international fashion label. It was during this period that I noticed the overwhelming number of decisions facing business owners and entrepreneurs trying to establish an online presence. Even the first step of setting up a website involves a huge range of decisions, from choosing a good hosting provider to finding the right platform to manage your website; all the while trying to manage the time and budget constraints that affect every business. I realised with my combination of web design and online marketing skills I was perfectly placed to be able help navigate this maze of options – so now that's exactly what I do. I am committed to clear, open communication, and my ultimate goal is a happy client. I treat each client's business as though it were my own and am dedicated to helping you find ways of taking your business to the next level, whether you're just starting out, or feeling in needing of a fresh strategy. Looking forward to working with you!

After injuries continued to sideline his competitive sports career he returned home and became one of the trail blazing pioneers to complete a newly offered and nationally acclaimed entrepreneurship degree program offered at Mount Royal. During his studies Branden also re-found his love of technology, ingrained in him from childhood, where his father would lug a “Luggable” computer up and down flights of stairs so that Branden could learn the artful skills of programming when growing bored of the unbeatable tic-tac-toe games. Just months after graduation quit a stable job with a fortune 500, to begin building his mobile advertising empire. Within another 4 months, before the days of social media and online viral campaigns was featured in over 30 traditional media outlets including CBC, CNN, and the Globe&Mail. Using technology unseen in the industry, as an accelerator Branden took lead of the new and emerging market space. Several years later, after negotiating international licensing agreements, Branden closed one final deal and ventured onwards to new entrepreneurial experiences. Branden co-founded Tradeopolis Communications in 2006, and grew this organization into a profitable consulting firm with increased profits year over year. Branden believes that to survive in business requires obsessive focus and relentless determination, coupled with genuine and honest interactions with all those around him. He marries these together in perfect harmony. Nominated for the 2013 Guardian Small Business Leader Of The Year, Branden is passionate about connecting and building relationships, specifically with entrepreneurs and works in an advisory capacity with various clients he believes have the "it" factor.
