    Top 10 Percent on oDesk for Online Marketing

    United States - Last active: 26 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.

    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.
