    Marketing Manager, Customer Support Agent, Translator (EN-PTBR-SPA)

    Brazil - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 13 - Portfolio: 4

    I'm a professional customer support agent, project and marketing manager with more than 4 years of experience. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Still studying mandarim and dutch, one day I'll get there. I've already worked for 6 different companies in the last 4 years, 5 from U.S and one from Brazil, in their customer support & public relations department. "À tribuna" was the first company I joined in CS and I used to answer clients calls and help them schedule and edit their ads for printing in the newspaper, at Ingreso Cybernetico (www.ingresocybernetico.com), I used to engage and help clients through live chat (zopim), tickets (our own system and ZenDesk), e-mails (hotmail and gmail), calls (skype), through social media (facebook & twitter) and also check translations and the programmers' work. I had to manage the entire operation for their brazilian customers. We used to coordinate and manage the operations of the whole website and digital products through Basecamp and Asana (www.basecamp.com & www.asana.com). I've also worked for four more companies (ALL FROM THE U.S.A): Omaze (fund raising), KeepSafe (App development), Gosu (Game production) and HandPrint (Smartphone rental in the U.S.A). Keepsafe (www.getkeepsafe.com) was the biggest app company I've ever worked for, with more than 40 million users around the world. I've also worked at Teleco.IO (www.teleco.io) and at Handprint (www.handprint.me) as a community manager. I basically had to create their social media pages, manage them, answer the questions, engage with people in groups and pages, etc. I started my carreer in digital marketing in 2012 when I started studying about affiliate marketing and it took me to SEO and the other components of Online Marketing, such as paid advertising (PPC as Adwords, facebook ads, linkedin ads, youtube ads, twitter ads), SMM (social media marketing), SEM (Search Engine Marketing with Adwords), E-mail marketing (autoresponders such as mail chimp, magic responder and aweber), analytics (bing & google's webmaster tools, google analytics, facebook analytics, youtube analytics, seomoz, seo majestic), keyword research (google's keyword planner for adwords, keyworddiscovery, seomoz keyword tool, long tail pro) and content marketing of all types (writting, videos and audios). I'm still building my own digital marketing portfolio. (www.mmnbrasileiro.com, a niche blog) I have the highest score in odesk's EN-PTBR translation test (First place out of 2.678 people.) I'm a professional translator with more than 5 years of experience, I started at the age of 17. I've already worked in several projects online (see my odesk profile) and offline (International events such as "Stone Fair"). I'm a professional voice actor since 2010, I can provide several samples of my work if needed. I'm Young, ethical, diligent, dedicated, experienced, skilled and FAST. I look forward to do my best for you and your company! Hire me and you won't regret having me aboard, let's do it!

Although predominately my position was in online video producing, the openness of the role allowed me to explore and learn many different skills. Social Media Jack of All Trades Twitter? Got it. Facebook? Let's make some ads. From Tumblr to Instagram, I have been working with online marketing specifically for social media for years- I know some great tricks of the trade, and how to communicate effectively using different tones for different audiences. Multimedia Production I specialised in multimedia for web use. I started with managing an international cosmetic company's multimedia content, then moved up to manage the social media as well. Video production is my area of expertise, i find it challenging, creative, and an excellent way to get a clear message out both to external markets as well as for internal company communication. Writing I am able to write copy, blogs and email blasts on a variety of subject (please ask me about travel!) as well as social media updating. Email Marketing I have skills in using mailchimp to blast out company news-both internally and externally, to a variety of different groups. Using a blend of different kinds of content, visuals and tones, I am an effective communicator when it comes to email marketing. Audio Editing I have worked exclusively with Audacity.

Transcriptions I have spent a lot of time transcribing our videos, predominately for translations. This require a lot of clarity and a good dose of perfectionism. Online Research I am internet savvy and can work on specified internet research project. You will find me to be well organised and a good communicator, I look forward to working with you!
