Online Marketing Expert inc. LeadPages, Conversion, Copywriting, Divi

United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 13

Hi, I am Jason and I live in sunny Florida with my wife and our 3 year old son. I enjoy helping entrepreneurs and businesses tell their story and I am driven and fulfilled by helping them reach their business and life goals. I accomplish this by crafting visually impressive WordPress websites (including copy and assets), as well as graphics/print materials (ie. marketing campaigns and company general info/identity) . Over the past year I have worked with several businesses to develop a cohesive brand and message that clearly speaks to their ideal client avatar via their website and collaterals. I have a vast knowledge and experience of online marketing and the tools to accomplish it. I prefer to work on Fixed Rate Projects with a clearly defined scope. Occasionally some projects are best suited for hourly tracking and I would consider these upon review. I love the quote by Benjamin Franklin, "If you want something done, ask a busy person." I think what Franklin was trying to communicate is "If you want something done, ask a focused person". I manage my time well and barring unforeseen extenuating circumstances, projects that I manage and work on, come in on-time and on-budget. My proactive communication style and experience with technology and communication tools work to accelerate my production for your benefit. I look forward to hearing from you on how I can assist on your next project that will take your business to the next level.

High Conversion Digital Marketing Strategy- Adwords / Ecommerce / SAAS

India - Tests: 20 - Portfolio: 20

An alumnus of Loyola College with over 23 years experience in marketing, branding, and sales. Successfully managed several strategic marketing initiatives for top notch national and international organisations. Astute sense of business dynamics and hands-on expertise in digital marketing technology that translates to profits for businesses. When not immersed in converting Analytics data to actionable marketing plans to improve ROI for customers, keeps track of the latest trends in digital marketing. _________________________________________________________________ If you need help in developing advertising campaigns that convert to high sales you are at the right place. Every campaign I manage consistently delivers high returns on investment. I achieve this with clear cut strategies using insights from analytics data, conversion testing, research findings and client briefings. Twenty plus years of experience in marketing, branding and sales and 5+ years expertise in automated marketing software including Adwords and Analytics goes into creating each of these high performing campaigns. Most projects I take up involve managing Adwords and improving conversions for ecommerce/SAAS businesses where campaign performance is measured by tracking sales revenue directly in Analytics. Even in lead generation projects that I handle, results are measured by tracking call-to-action goals such as form submissions, sign ups, downloads, video views and phone calls. I can work as part of your existing team, bring in my own team or build a new team from scratch. I get directly involved in every aspect of the project till it is nurtured to a stage it can be handled by other members of my team. Of course this is done only after approval from the client. If you run an online marketing agency I can provide my services on a white label basis. This means while you take care of the customer-facing work, I support your project in the background. Here are a couple of thoughts to remember while choosing online marketing services. Just as bestsellers need imaginative minds not simply a word processor, great campaigns need strategic thinking not just automated software. Also keep in mind, just like an unreadable ECG report in a doctor’s hand saves lives, insights from Analytics data can keep your business healthy. Thank you for stopping by. I would be interested in hearing about challenging projects I could add value to. So do get in touch. Regards, Nilesh Sanghvi
