    Google has changed the search results forever. In 2015 and beyond, your online presence needs to be sustainable, competitive and of high quality. As a Marketing strategist with strong project management skills, i will help you achieve your goals online while monitoring ROI. 1. Top-11 Marketing from +250,000 freelancers (See screenshot below) 2. ~Four years oDesk: 98.7% of all 76 clients gave 5-star feedback, just 1 gave 4.70 ...not bad, right :) 3. Better than 98% according to oDesk SEO test 4. Over 3,300 hours working experience through oDesk and over 80 clients served *** The following stats include oDesk + working offline: A- Over 1,000 hours of Social media Management & Social Strategy. Producing engaging content and making sure your social media gets a good ROI> B- Over 2,000 hours of pure SEO, organic rankings, link building and outreach C- Over 500 hours of writing result-driven, lead generating content D- Over 2,500 hours of Setting up and Developing Digital marketing Strategy, Second opinions, Communication, Project Management, Improving existing Marketing Campaigns on a strategic and tactical level and Team leadership & Building and making sure all of the above comes together. ***Fortune-500 businesses and local companies alike*** Through famous agencies, I did projects for American Express, Expedia, Marriott Hotels, Silvercar and a variety of start-ups and established (local) companies. I set up SEO-teams that vary in size from 2 - 12 people for clients and mostly act as an SEO-specialist myself. Digital marketing strategies, Link building, outreach and onSite optimisation have no secrets for me. NO GOALS SET YET? NO PLAN? ....No problem.... Let's develop those! I will help you setup a solid digital strategy and plan with KPI's, we can do a keyword and/or competitor analysis too, so you're never starting something without having a solid foundation. I have a University degree in Business (Major business, minor marketing) and broad experience with working in advertising agencies. Whether B2B or B2C, I believe passionately that good marketing essentials are the same. We all are emotional beings looking for relevance, context and connection. I'm from Amsterdam (The Netherlands, EU) and my nationality is Dutch, i have lived in Berlin and Spain and currently live in Panama City. Please be realistic about budget vs. goals though, if your main competitors are spending +$5,000/month on expertise you won't get much with let's say $500/ month http://www.bouwcenterhci.nl/ (construction) +71,000 visitors/yr. http://www.profilerscommunicatie.nl/ (advertising) +24,000 visitors/yr. http://www.lighthouseip.com/ (Optimising their website) https://www.americanexpress.com/ (built over 50 high quality links) http://www.oxenerschoenen.nl/ (UGG luxury footwear) +57,000 visitors/yr. oDesk SEO test: the test says "Top 10%" but if you click the test results you can see that i'm actually in the top 1.4% of everyone that ever made this test. Please research and click "details". *** THINKING OF EXPANDING INTERNATIONALLY? IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY! My *secret* passions are Medical and Technical writing. I LOVE to get to the bottom of things and research / write about a variety of topics. Actually, I have been writing articles and scripts since i was 15, in a variety of languages. And I love languages! Language pairs i control (if you need translations done): Dutch -> English English -> Dutch Spanish -> Dutch Spanish -> English German -> Dutch German -> English *** One of my best experiences was working closely together with "James Agate" at SkyRocket SEO in Brighton - UK. For over a year i worked for him on a variety of projects and managed an international SEO-team. James is well known within the industry and an established author on moz.com. I'm the kind of person that always tries to think with you, therefore i think i can be of great value to your business.... About content marketing: good content builds relationships. Relationships are built on trust. Trust drives revenue. HAPPY TO HELP :)

    eCommerce Marketing Manager & Analyst

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6

    I'm an experienced eComm marketing strategist, with a focus on data analysis. If you sell products or services online, you (hopefully!) already have the data necessary to make smart, strategic marketing decisions. My focus is on synthesizing what your customers and potential customers are already telling you through their user behavior, and turning that into actionable tactics. I've worked with both small ($1M/yr revenue) and large ($4B+/yr) companies. My experience is broad, across various marketing channels like PPC, email, social, mobile, SEO, affiliate, content, retargeting, PLA. I enjoy it all, but my passion is the combination of data and creativity. Ask yourself this: what effect does my visitors' screen resolution have on my conversion rate? Or: What was the result of the most recent A/B landing page test for my Widget Adwords campaign? Or even: Traffic from social media channels has spiked over the past two months thanks to our content efforts. What sort of revenue or ROI are we seeing across each channel? I'm well-equipped and experienced to handle all of these and more! I think most businesses don't need marketers...they need someone who can turn the available data into a legitimate test and who understand the driving mechanisms of purchase mentality. Send me an invite today, and let's talk!
