    Exceptional lead generator, appointment setter, and researcher

    Philippines - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 8

    Good Day! I used to work as an appointment setter for a home improvement and timeshare owning campaign. I've also worked as a data encoder for a manufacturing company for over three years. At that moment, I still believe I am an average girl, and I won't stand out. I don't have a very impressive background like those of other freelancers, all I have are DREAMS for my family. This motivates me to strive harder and become EXCEPTIONAL. I may not have the most impressive profile and proposal, but I know that what I'm saying right now is coming deep inside my heart and that every words written is sincere. I know this may take a little bit of your time but I would like to BOLDLY explain to you why I believe I should be given a chance. I will start with my educational background. I am a constant honor student from elementary until high school. However, I haven't been able to go to college because of the financial status of my family. I've worked in a manufacturing company for six years. The first three years was as a production operator but then my superior saw a potential from me and was recommended for a promotion as a data encoder. This is pretty tough because all my competitors have a college degree background, but I proved myself and got the job. I've worked as a data encoder for the last three years that I stayed in that company. My job is to put all the daily production output in an MS Excel spreadsheet. I also do data entry of the Names, Address, Contact numbers and skills of the production operators. At times, I help in doing the skill refreshment exams, I use MS Word for this job. However, I've got higher goals. I want to send all my siblings to college so I decided to find a higher paid job. That's when I got a chance to work as an appointment setter for a home improvement and timeshare campaign. The job is to convince individuals ( business / residential ) to attend a presentation. I do the email follow ups and confirmation. Send the driving directions as well as the confirmation code that they need to present upon arriving the showroom. They don't require a college degree because they pay on a minimum wage basis, but they give you a pretty good commission for every successful appointment that is measured on how many shows you can make in a month. This helped me to gain more earnings, because I can make a pretty good number of shows. Hence, I was awarded as one of the show maker in our company. This is in a form of cash incentive so I was very happy and contented with my job. Then, a crisis struck the company that affects their finances so they have to lay-off some agents and being one of the new members, I was included in the lay-off. I am quite old now to be employed here in our country. There are other companies that I still qualify for my age but won't qualify in my educational background. That was when a friend of mine told me about freelance job, particularly Elance. She helped me put up everything I need to get started. The computer, a 24/7 post-paid internet connection, and the basic tools I need for this job. Luckily, I've got a job. It's a fixed price job as an appointment setter. After finishing the job, the client hired me for her 2nd project, but then we have to cancel it for it requires a US number. I'm using a Google Voice at that time but right now I've already got a VoIP service and Virtual number as well. I also dream of having a team of 2-3 members perhaps, but right now my focus is to get a job as an individual so that I can make money to improve my performance and status as a freelancer. An Admin Support job or a Sales job both suites for me. It can be a data entry or a quick typing job that will require a 40-50 wpm. I can do cold calling, B2B or B2C. Email follow ups, or even Facebook Marketing. I've passed English skills test and got a pretty good result in Facebook Marketing skills. That is how I started as a freelancer on Elance. It was more than a year now and I already got vast experiences there. Lead generator, appointment setter, researcher, and other sales and administrative task. Now, I am trying my luck here on Upwork, I believe you are aware as I am, that this will soon be a single platform combining freelancer and clients from Elance and Upwork. So, I am hoping that I will be given the same chance as I did on Elance. I can assure you a quality service at a minimal cost. I am well motivated and I have self-discipline. I treat my clients as treasures so if you are going to hire me, I'll make it a point not to fail you. Thank you so much for taking time to read my story, and I am looking forward to work with you soon.
