    Community Manager & Customer Service Agent

    Brazil - Last active: 15 hours ago - Tests: 14 - 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), Handprint (www.handprint.me) and Grace Smith TV (www.gracesmithtv.com) as a community manager. I basically had to create their social media pages, manage them, answer the questions, engage with people in groups, pages, forums, etc. Here are some tools that I know how to manage: Dropbox, One Drive, google package (drive, docs, sheets, gmail, google+), Social media (Facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest, google+, youtube, linkedin, whatssapp), ZenDesk, Chat&Serve, HelpShift, Infusionsoft, Evernote, IQTELL, Hootsuite, Edgar, Buffer, Basecamp, Asana, Slack, Amplitude, Skype, Office Package (powerpoint, word, excel, etc.), SEOmoz, Google analytics, Webmaster tools, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, Audacity, Sony Vegas Pro and Sound Forge. 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!
