Paul P. Agency Contractor

Multitasker with Modern Online Business Expertise

United Kingdom - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 10

My dream is to some day be part of a large and openly-governed company that is widely accepted as an innovator. In the mean time I'm fascinated with the fact that small and mid size businesses, while struggling to find the right people for their team, are able to spread innovation and create the majority of jobs. I'm here to assist motivated and passionate entrepreneurs with execution of brand building activities. Doing great in the competitive online environment of today requires great content and unbeatable offers. Having your brand visible through the right combination of tools is where I can help. I specialize in understanding the big picture of keeping web presence - from hands on web design, business plan writing and marketing strategy to web development management, marketing execution, content creation and team management. I feel businesses need to constantly evolve in their quest to making money. The way to do this is by working with people who see a fair deal - the ones who would love to work with you. --- Let's start by discussing your targets and then rest assured you will get a reasonable judgement. Practice shows that startups with limited budgets and steep learning curves, who don't know what to expect or how to manage low-cost service providers, end up either as returning clients or get motivated enough to get their hands dirty. I'm an efficient communicator with diverse experience, vision and a unique set of skills. I'm mostly thrilled by coordinating the right resources for a project (Hiring, Management and Fundraising), however I'm lately focusing on Marketing as a tool to connect ideas to people and make things happen. I'm really fascinated with BIG Data and the opportunities it provides to humanity ... and to targeting small groups of people or actually every single person with relevant content on the web. It's likely that I can easily fit in your team, because of my experience with General Business Assistance, Wordpress, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Mail Chimp, Tracking and Targeting, User Experience, Optimize Press, Google Drive, Gmail, Facebook Advertising, Google Advertising & Analytics, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Prezi, Photoshop, Trello, Asana, Calendar. I'm willing to learn and get my hands dirty with SalesForce, Bid-advertising, KissMetrics, Adobe marketing cloud and other premium tools. I'm always happy to approach new technology or methodology in order to grow professionally as part of your business. My offline experience is varied - Banking Intern, Bartender, Stock Trading, Manager of a Limo company, Event management. For clients with more diverse or time-consuming needs, I can refer team members from my network of friends and professionals. Being part of a great team is really important to me. In my free time I like to brainstorm with diverse people around me about relevant problems. Since recently, we are accepting CouchSurfers in our home and that further helps with seeing the big picture - getting insights directly from people from all over the world. I think shared economy will play a major role in our digital future. I try to discover practical ways to implement high impact trends into small and mid-size businesses. I am oDesk tested and in the Top 10 - 20% in many disciplines. I hold a Business Administration degree (with Honors) from the City University of New York. I am comfortable with complex ideas and have interests in tech, markets, sustainability, economy and alternatives, behavioral studies, nonprofit, law, diplomacy and others. I'm here to give out 100% of myself and to establish long-lasting, beneficial relationships with happy clients. I want to diversify my experience and portfolio, while helping your business grow on the Web. Thanks for reading, Paul
