    Anna Harris

    Internet Marketer with Office Management Experience

    United States - Tests: 4

    Hi there! I'm what used to be known as a Girl Friday - an internet marketer, office administrator, event coordinator, and all around life organizer. I love helping people get their files straight and their busy work lives back on track. My days are spent in the freelance marketing realm, creating online marketing and PR campaign strategy for small businesses. I have proven experience in newsletter and email campaign creation, social media marketing, creation of web copy and press releases, local and national SEO, social media strategy and application, website maintenance, updating and streamlining client relationship management software. However, just because I can pull out the big guns doesn't mean that I'm not good at the little stuff. My favorite tasks to help people with are the smaller, (let's face it here) kind of annoying ones, like proofreading documents, constructing legible emails, cleaning up unwieldy Excel files, organizing file folders, and most of the other things that make you wish you'd hit the snooze button just one more time this morning. I have a MSc in Internet Marketing, as well as a graduate degree in Historic Preservation, and I've worked with non-profits, small retailers, alternative health practitioners, gyms, architects, accountants, and artists. You'll find that I'm fair, open minded, and always willing to give my best to reach your goal.
