    Web Scraper/Social Bookmarking/Data Entry/SEO/Researcher

    Philippines - Last active: 16 hours ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    My first work experience was that of a Data Encoder. Projects that I have handled at that time were more of inputting data for Law Books. This job has widened my knowledge on the use of a programmed Excel Database. With this job, I have learned the importance of efficiency and productivity while maintaining output of quality and accuracy. My second job was somehow related to the first one. During this time, projects that I have handled were focused on inputting data for health insurance claims. My key job responsibilities included output consolidation and reports generation that have developed my skills in Excel, Word and Power point presentations. With these said, my goal is to be able to provide these services to potential buyers and to also widen my knowledge on the current skills that I have and to be able to learn new ones at the same time.

    Professional Copywriter/Marketer

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    You need great, compelling copy. But not those stale, stilted, and search engine repellent words of sales "failure" the average copywriter provides. You need expertly written descriptions and words that dig deep, highlight the benefits of your products/services, and beg consumers to click "buy now." If the same copy had a few carefully selected keywords thrown in to seduce Google, then that would be a bonus! Whether you're just starting out and aren't quite sure what your brand's "voice" is yet and need a little help, or you have a pretty firm brand direction and want a copywriter who can jump in and take over without`a lot of hand holding or headaches, I will take your bland copy and make it come alive. I've specialized in working with eCommerce sites, and marketing agencies for over three years doing product descriptions, buying guides, consumer reports, articles, reviews, and editing for all of the above. As an added bonus, my ego will stay at home. Okay, so I work from home. But I'll shove it in a drawer somewhere. My satisfaction with real-life clients has been fantastic. Want to find out why? Contact me to discuss your content needs.
