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.

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 a professional translator with more than 5 years of experience, I started at the age of 17.
