Team Leader for Creative Marketing

Philippines - Tests: 3

For the past 3 and a half years, I have been working as part of the marketing team. Currently, I am the Team Leader for Creative Marketing of a local online shopping site here in the Philippines. My main task would be to suggest, craft, and implement promotions/contests to gain more traffic and fans on our social media page. I also supervise a team of 7 - making sure that we are on track with our marketing targets. I have done a few online jobs for data entry and research before on other websites. I would love to do it again. For travel planning, all I have is personal travel planning and planning of trips for my friends - which I think I can improve in the future. I have been writing English articles since high school and I worked as a content writer for several companies here in the Philippines. I also have a certification from IELTS with a grade of 7.

SEO Specialist/Social Media Marketing/SEM

Poland - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 7

Jedrzej K. is: TOP 10% SEO Specialist! TOP 20% SEO Content Writer! TOP 20% Internet Marketing Expert! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Do you want your website #1 in Google for multiple keywords? Do you want more laser targeted traffic? Or maybe you want highly qualified leads? I can do that for you. My name is Andrew and I'm SEO specialist. I have been doing SEO for my clients (and myself) since 2008. Now I'm here on oDesk and providing 100% effective SEO and Search Engine Marketing for individuals and businesses who want to see their websites at the top of search engines. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Reliability - Work integrity - Highest quality - Great communication - Always on time - Peace of mind - No headaches... You give me project details and deadlines, I'm creating the best marketing campaign for you and then we start working it out. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm freelancer and don't own big SEO agency. You can talk to me any time you want and I'm always ready to have a friendly chat with you (I don't mind working under time pressure). I'm able to give you great price for highest quality services (I work only with a small number of clients at any given time to ensure fast and the best service). My recipe for getting top positions in Google and Bing is time tested and simple: "Make sure onPage SEO is Perfect and get Relevant High Page Rank Links from Relevant High Quality websites and build/integrate Social Media Presence" This recipe works 100% of the time, no matter what update Google rolls out. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What exactly makes my SEO services more effective than 99% of other services available on this website? There are two types of SEOs. Guys who will try to rank websites using mass link building techniques, low quality spun content, links from directories, forums, blog comments and any other type of free links available out there. They will buy links from link farms or link networks. Most of the time their services are very cheap... Unfortunately this kind of SEO won't bring you lasting results. Low cost SEO is simply dangerous because it violates Google SEO guidelines and websites using such tactics will get penalized sooner or latter. You don't want this kind of SEO service. On the other hand there are SEOs who know that ranking website takes a little more than just free or low budget links. They know about importance of keyword research, onPage SEO and influence of website design and speed on search engine rankings. They know how to use HTML, CSS and PHP coding languages to get websites to the top of rankings. They are able to give their clients lasting results in a timely manner. I'm happy to be a part of this group. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Panda and Penguin updates. I work WITH Google and do exactly what Google expect from SEO professionals like myself. I don't try to "play" with search engine algorithm or be smarter than hundreds of Google search engineers, the top people in the industry. That's why my SEO/SEM services are always compliant with Google TOS. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I do understand how Google works and what it wants from websites. That's way I'm able to rank websites fast and in a way that is 100% Google friendly and effective. So if you need help with any of those: - SEO strategy and tactics - SEO ROI - Manual link building - Automatic link building - Social media marketing - Writing SEO content - Optimizing existing content - OnPage SEO - Video SEO - Viral marketing - Web design (Wordpress, HTML, CSS) - Forum marketing - Article writing (especially for health and fitness related niches) - Pinterest marketing - Email autoresponder integration - And anything related to the SEO and social media marketing... get in touch with me asap. You will get real measurable results and high positive ROI (high return on your SEO investment). If you want 1st positions in Google in a timely manner and without having to worry about service delivery and quality, just let me know. We can schedule a chat over the Skype or via email. Thank you for taking the time and reading this! Andrew
