  10. Trever Clark

    Trever Clark

    Internet Business Jack of All Trades

    United States - Last active: 10 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.
