    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.

    Trever Clark

    Internet Business Jack of All Trades

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5

    Hi - My name is Trever. I'm skilled in a variety of web business related disciplines, from article writing to Wordpress, customer service, and IT support. I'm a college educated native English speaker, born and bred in the Midwestern United States. I can help you with nearly any aspect of your online business for a reasonable rate. As an intermediate level Internet marketer myself, I understand your business. Most of my living comes from selling an information product that I created, supplemented by affiliate marketing, CPA, and Adsense sites (MFA). Previously, I worked as a network admin for 5 years followed by a stint managing the Internet Marketing efforts of a $4 Million a year supplements company. What I can do: -Content Management and Writing - Web writing, blogging, high quality "panda proof" seo articles, product descriptions, basic e-books and more. Samples available on request. -Transcription - I type 70 wpm error free, and can transcribe from video or audio files. I recently transcribed an entire independent film, with time stamps, (which will premier at film festivals around the world in the coming months) for the purpose of creating English language sub-titles. -IT and Tech Support - Before I began working for myself, I spent 5 years as a Microsoft/Cisco network admin. -SEO Management - Proficient in all manner of onsite and offsite SEO strategy. I won't do bulk link building (you can pay someone $2 an hour for that), but pretty much anything else is fair game. -Customer Service - Need someone who understand sales to answer phones and email or staff your live chat? Consider it done. -Social Media Community Management - I built my previous employer's highly engaged Facebook community from scratch. When I left, they had 4,000 fans and were seeing 500 referrals from FB per week. -Wordpress - I don't do development, but I'm very experienced with running and maintaining WP sites and can do just about anything else related to WP. -Conversion Optimization and Web Analytics - I've only been involved with it for about 9 months, but I'm a geek for optimization. This is the stuff that I read about in my spare time. I understand the emerging "best practices" in this field that can mean the difference between making sales or having visitors screaming for the "back button". -VA Management - Have a team of low end VAs from developing countries? Let me manage them for you. I've managed up to 10 VAs at a time for myself and my previous employer, keeping them productive and on track. Affiliate Management - I can stay in touch with affiliates, keeping them motivated and providing them with the tools that they need to sell your product. -PPC Management - While I can't setup your PPC campaign from scratch, I can maintain it for you, writing and testing ad copy, finding new keywords, keeping campaigns organized, and regularly adding negative keywords. -Other - Does it involve Web Business? I've probably done it, or can quickly learn it. Feel free to contact me, and we can discuss items outside of those listed.
