    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers. I have transcribed videos and audio files. I enjoy writing and this passion has helped me to write many articles on a variety of topics in both English and French. I know the value of getting work done quickly and accurately. I am good at leading others to accomplish that same goal.

LOCAL SEO AND LOCAL MAPS: I offer both organic and paid local search services to help fortify your local listings in the search engines, so you will be found in your local market.

SEO STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT: Not sure what you need, but have an SEO budget? I’ll work with you to define a custom needs assessment and strategy for long-term search marketing success. OPTIMIZING YOUR WEBSITE: SEO (Search Engine Optimization) involves optimizing a website's coding, presentation, and structure to ensure that your website content is easily indexed by search engine robots. In addition to making your website more search engine friendly, we may recommend adding unique quality content to your site, improving usability, navigation and the design of your website. KEYWORD RESEARCH: The first step to implementing a successful SEO campaign is performing keyword research. I identify relevant high value keyword phrases that will increase traffic, target your demographic and potentially convert at a higher rate.

LINK BUILDING: Link building is an essential part of SEO. Google’s algorithm indexes and analyzes links from every web page that they can find throughout the Internet. They use a complex algorithm to determine your website’s topical relevance and trust factor. A key indicator to Google of a website’s value is that other sites are linking to it. The amount, quality and topical relevance of the websites that link to you, as well as the text they use in those links (anchor text), are a heavily weighted indicator that Google uses to determine the value of your website and what it is about. Link building can involve many different techniques, a few of which include content distribution and syndication, press release optimization, directory submissions, content exchanges, contacting webmasters and influential bloggers, widget creation, social bookmarking, creating link-worthy content, link bait, video distribution, viral video creation, widget creation, badge creation… and we could keep going. REPORTING: Once optimization is complete, I run reports again every 30 days to check on the progress of your Website – you will be updated on these monthly ranking report results via e-mail..
