    Over the years, I've gained a lot of experience from previous accounting and controller positions, in all phases of a company's operations, including staff hiring and management. As a result, I can process your accounting transactions for you, among other projects. I've worked extensively with Microsoft Excel building spreadsheets to hold information necessary to support amounts in the financial statements. These spreadsheets were arranged in a logical, easy-to-follow format. Many of them became workpapers to support audits and tax returns. This also includes the use of simple databases within Excel to keep information organized. English spelling and grammar are also among my strong points. I can proofread information and make corrections before that information is published. Over the past few years, I've been working on an learning various aspects of social media and internet marketing. Some of these areas include: - website creation to showcase your products and services - mobile websites for displaying your brand correctly on smart phones - facebook pages for business - video marketing to draw in your audience and connect with them - email marketing to stay connected to your prospects and customers - reputation management to encourage positive reviews and manage negative reviews It's important for a business to stay up on social media, and the various platforms that are available to get the word out to their prospects, converting them into satisfied customers before the competition gets to them.
