    I'm Bill and I can help you grow your business with my years of experience. I have owned operated and have been through the trenches with businesses. I love helping out fellow businesses grow and achieve there company goals. I have had a lot of experience building marketing plans, businesses plans, growing businesses, analyzing businesses and fixing businesses so they operate smoothly. My strongest skill that I have is that I'm an out of the box thinker and go against the grain. I see things differently than others and that has always helped me with my businesses and freelancing career. **REAL LIFE MARKETING EXAMPLE OF MY MARKETING HELP** -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here's a great real life example of my creativity in marketing: I have a client and she is a hair dresser. She asked me how to drive traffic into her SLOW hair salon. I asked her why it was so slow. She said that the prices were kind of high and nobody wanted to try that salon because the outside looked bad but the inside was beautiful. I told she had two options 1) Fix the outside appearance or 2) Try a creative marketing approach. She said what could I do that's creative for haircuts? I told her to use the "A" frame sign in front of here store and put, "FREE HAIRCUTS THIS WEEKEND- TIPS APPRECIATED". What do you think happened? The hair salon was slammed. She had 15-25 bookings a day that weekend and was making $5-$25 in tips per client. She had so much work she had to give it away to the other stylists in that salon. They absolutely loved the haircuts and she booked about 1/2 the clients for the next haircut. Whenever she gets slow she breaks out that "A" frame sign and they flock in. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have top 20%-20%-30% scores on Odesk for marketing, business plans, customer service and would love to help your business achieve it's financial goals. I'm a very hard worker with an intense focus on the job at hand. You need to hire me because I will bring true value to your business and help you fix the internal issues that others can't see. I look forward to helping you build your business

I've also done extensive research in natural/alternative treatments, focusing on pain management and quitting smoking.

My research has been of interest to medical communities in three countries and is ongoing. Currently studying psychology at Argosy University. I have a background with criminal justice administrative work and also do some photography on the side. I have valuable business contacts throughout the world, which can often assist in the timely completion of large projects (professional photographers, authors, editors, printers, website designers, commercial construction contacts, models, makeup artists, freelance writers and so on). I can assist in business setup/management by taking a look at what your immediate and long-term goals are and creating a solid business plan to help you set things in motion. I'm also available to manage this aspect of your business. I'm experienced with creating business plans, marketing plans and can also help with grant proposals and other financial proposals. I've helped several ODesk contractors put together an award-winning profile, write cover letters designed to get a positive response and help with compiling a professional portfolio. I do a lot of different things and my experience comes from not only my own experience owning and managing two successful businesses (and working successfully as a professional writer/editor), but from helping other business owners and freelancers (businesses of all sizes) put together or reorganize a business.
