    Top 10 Percent on oDesk for Online Marketing

    United States - Last active: 30 days ago - Tests: 6

    ►Top 10% on oDesk for Google Analytics ►Top 20% on oDesk for Google Adwords --I use both of those tools together simultaneously to create positive ROI for my clients. Examples of work provided on request. ________________________________________________________ ►Top 20% on oDesk for SEO - I current consult and provide strategy and ideas for SEO projects but do *not* do linkbuilding because of the risks associated with current and future Google algorithm updates. Anyone that says their SEO plan for you involves 'tailored' or 'many linkes from PR5+ sites' is going to hurt your website. Pick someone like me that does this stuff for a salaried living. ►1st place on oDesk for English spelling test and Top 20% for English skills - Many people on oDesk can speak relatively good fluent English. Few can write compelling ad text and website copy that connects with native English speakers. ________________________________________________________ Who I am: Online marketing expert with 7 years of experience currently based in Denver, CO, USA. My specialties are in Google Adwords, Analytics, Bing Ads, and on-site SEO. I am certified by Google in all available Adwords exams and also in Bing's Adcenter. I'm currently looking for a few select clients to work on a contract basis for any of the above services. I'm not interested in working with people that cannot afford my reasonable hourly rate (given my experience and certifications) or those that do not have a large enough retainer for me to improve campaigns and see drastic ROI increases. Who I am looking to work for: An established small business or agency that is interested in contracting out freelance Adwords, Analytics, or Bings Ads work. This is someone that is has clearly identified goals (sales, leads, etc) and is interested in more of a long-term partnership instead of short one-offs. -I believe that character matters. I'm not here to make a quick buck, I want to provide real value and create a trusting and long-lasting business relationship for a fair price. Nothing more, nothing less. -Relationships do matter. When people say things like, "It's just business" that means they are in the business of ripping people off. I give honest and direct answers and will not steer you in the wrong direction, even if it means less money for me. Honesty and transparency = greater long term rewards.

    Web Developer

    India - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 6

    If you're looking for a someone to write a few lines of code and do some pseudo-SEO for you, I'm not for you. I'll gladly point you to other providers who can do that. But you're probably trying to build a website for some real purpose, like selling stuff or offering a service where people will pay you real money, right? So your website has to cease looking like a dull website. It has to delight the user with thoughtful little features that will seduce your customers. Your ideal coder has to understand these things. She or he has to feel them like they feel their own heart beating when they stop to feel. Here's where I can help. I understand the ins and outs of SEO. I can optimize your site so customers find you online through organic search (not paid search). A big part of SEO these days is building a responsive mobile site. I can do that. And I know a hell of a lot of shortcuts that will save you money in the long run. Don't let the programmers hijack your site and tell you what to do. You just need a website that responds to different screen-sizes without breaking character. Because your customers won't trust you if you are inconsistent. HMTL5, DHTML, PHP, MySQL, Javascript, Ruby on Rails, and all the good stuff can help. But you need someone like me who sees the big picture, but can still get into the little details of the code (write the code, come up with solutions to real problems) and build websites, e-commerce platforms that make you money (or if you're a non-profit, helps you save lives). Let's put an end to all the programming gobbledygook and actually build a website that works. Drop me a note. You never know, we might be a match.
