Fatima A. Agency Contractor

Your All-in-One Website Solutions Provider

Pakistan - Tests: 26 - Portfolio: 18

Setting up a site? Pick your CMS--or don't--and let's go. I can handle both plain HTML/CSS (that includes HTML5/CSS3) websites and Wordpress-based websites. I can install Wordpress, upload and customize your selected theme, customize templates, set up the most important plugins, add pre-existing content, do basic troubleshooting, act as a liaison between you and site developers you may have already hired (being fluent in both Geek and Human!), and make sure you get a shiny new website that's powerful yet simple enough to run all by yourself if you want. Need to fill up your shiny new website with equally shiny content? I'm a versatile writer, editor, and blogger who's full of ideas, handy with Powerpoint and Word (read: presentations, ebooks, infographics) and can even come up with a graphic or two when you need me to. You can hand over your content development, production and management tasks to me knowing they will be done with the utmost dedication and attention to detail--while you focus your energy on other things, like running a business. Got a shiny new website filled with awesome content nobody's visiting? I hear you. And I can help you. I can take a look at your SEO, social media presence, AdWords campaign, email marketing, copywriting and anything else we need to get that ball rolling. You throw the party, let me find the guests. There are some things I won’t touch with a ten-foot pole though: blackhat SEO, blackhat SMM, article spinning, and generally wasting your time, my time, and the customer’s time. --- I'm all about 3 things: Words. Websites. Web Marketing. 1. Words: My first love is wordsmithing: I find the written word seductive and am fascinated by everything about it, from the diversity of meaning it can hold to the impact it can generate and even down to the way strokes of ink are arranged on a page, digital or otherwise. I’ve been interested in creating languages since childhood. The combination of an engineer’s curiosity and something of a pedant’s perfectionism pushed me to pay particular attention to the formal rules that govern how we express ourselves through language while simultaneously trying to find new and better ways to do so. Tasks such as editing, analyzing and proofreading come to me naturally. 2. Websites: I fell in love with the WWW at the tender age of 13, when I made an online news magazine monstrosity back in 2002-2003, created in Microsoft FrontPage using HTML I’d painstakingly learned from Neopets, and hosted on Angelfire. I would rush home every day to fire up my computer, wait for the old 14.4 kbps dial-up modem to connect, then spend long hours working on what fit a prepubescent’s idea of the “front page of the Internet” in the time before Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, and Buzzfeed. Childhood bliss. Three years ago, I decided to take our relationship to the next level, and things have only gotten better since. My standard-issue tools include WordPress and the meat-and-potatoes of frontend development: HTML/CSS/JS. I can also manage servers insofar as they affect website performance, security, and SEO. 3. Web Marketing: This should be “digital marketing”, but alliteration is fun. I never thought I’d be interested in marketing: I’m not some soulless hype machine, I scoffed. So why am I sending out these email newsletters, you ask? Why do I enjoy spending time trying to analyze buyer personas from campaigns covered by the national trade magazine, you wonder? Why do I hear about an interesting new idea or product and instantly start to think about the best ways to persuade more people of its merits? I finally had my coming out in 2012, when I realized my long-time secret love affair with sales funnels, ad campaigns, and marketing tactics was more than just a passing fling. You cannot be a sixteen year old who hoards issues of marketing magazines, re-reading them obsessively, and not be in it over your head. In addition to the usual marketing mix, I can also handle client communications, customer support, and other aspects of customer relations–because great customer service is great marketing. Marketing doesn’t have to be soulless. --- Working with Me: Because I tend to invest myself heavily in the projects that I take up, I prefer to be selective and would rather commit myself to jobs that inspire me on a personal level. I take pride in my work and I enjoy devoting myself to things I can believe in–products, ideas, people, causes.

Anne Balke

Anne Balke


United States - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 30

Recognized as a top Upwork contractor. I have the skills and experience necessary to complete any of the following jobs: complex research, skilled writing (Ex. website content, articles, blog content, ebooks, white papers, just to name a few), editing, basic websites (my preference is to set up websites where I can train the client to "take over" after I am done so that they don't have to keep paying a web designer), business consulting (online marketing strategies for small businesses) or other similar projects. My rates depend upon the complexity of the project. Let me be upfront - if you are looking for someone to work at "outsourcer rates" or to provide any work that is unethical or "black hat," then I am not that person. But if you are looking for a person who will provide HIGH QUALITY and ORIGINAL work, completed by someone with both an attention to detail and a creative mind, then that's me. I stand by all my work and won't work on anything that I wouldn't be proud to put my name on. My portfolio has numerous examples of the different types of work that I have done for clients and I have others. [Note - if you are trying to view my actual website from my profile, I am in the process of changing hosting providers so my site is temporarily unavailable.] One of my specialties is helping people develop well-written informational content that brings organic and natural traffic to their sites. I provide writing, editing and formatting services for online website content. I am fortunate to have a gift with writing and truly enjoy it. Over my lifetime I have met many people with brilliant ideas and thoughts who struggle with getting them into writing in a way that effectively conveys the message. I have a passion for helping people take their thoughts and put words on paper so that the ideas can be shared with others. There is a great sense of satisfaction that I get when a client tells me “that’s exactly what I wanted to say!” Although I have not been formally hired as a writer until recently, I have an extensive writing history. I am conscientious and thorough in all that I do, often going above and beyond employer expectations. I have an inner passion for knowledge and answers. If I don't know something, want new information or want to learn how to do something, I do whatever is necessary to find the answers. My preferred jobs are advanced Research and Writing projects that require someone with great attention to detail and an analytical approach to finding information, not just "collecting data." {Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the data collection process, but typically simple research jobs don't pay equivalent to my experience & expertise.} Outside of freelance work as a writer, I provide business consulting, web design and online marketing services for small businesses, "from one small business owner, to another." As an entrepreneur who has been through the struggles of learning how to succeed when resources were limited, I understand what it is like to build a small business from the ground up. My formal training is in Psychology and this background gives me a unique perspective on the world of marketing and behavior. I have been a work-at-home mother since 2002 and absolutely love the freedom that being self employed provides. As a business consultant, it is my job to Research and Find Solutions for my clients, as well as find information relevant for their business/industry. As a web/internet consultant, with knowledge of how content and keywords affect search engine results, I have a full understanding that there is "much more to be found" beyond the first Google results pages. On the educational level, I have a Master's Degree "plus" in Counseling Psychology from a school that was extremely research oriented, preparing students for Doctoral Programs. Not only did the regular coursework require routine research and report writing, but the program included completion of a Master's Thesis. I also have an undergraduate minor in statistics. Prior to becoming a freelancer, I have over twenty years of experience working with children in social and school settings. My specialty was working with children with emotional and learning disabilities. As the Director of a Youth Shelter, I also have experience supervising and managing teams. In 2002, after 20 years in the corporate world, working full time "plus," I made the decision to change focus. With these new priorities I started down the path of being a "work from home mother" (WAHM) and home business owner. "Enjoy Life Enterprises" is the umbrella for all of my entrepreneurial and freelance endeavors. Because I am completely self-employed, I have flexibility in the hours that I can provide, based upon what is required. I am located in the United States (North Carolina) and can be reached by email or if you are US based, we can talk by phone. I have a Skype account if you are outside of the US.
