    Editor, Content Ideas Consultant, Writing Team Manager, Writer

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 4

    I am a lifelong writer and experienced editor who returned to college a little more than ten years ago. I earned top honors at Quincy College with a 4.0 GPA. My fellow classmates also voted me class leader because of all the help I was able to give them alongside our teachers. I've studied a variety of subjects over the years, earning over 60 college credits, focusing mainly on English, economics, business communications and computer applications. My most recent certification was from Sullivan and Cogliano Computer School. After college, I became an editorial assistant for Gatehouse Media, working on several community newspapers. When I worked the Old Colony Memorial newsroom, my editor-in-chief awarded me Employee of the Month, but when the recession hit the newspaper industry three years later, they implemented massive layoffs, and had to let me go, along with 34 others that day. That's when my small business, Write My Stuff, was born. Thanks to the great editors at the newspaper, I can write and edit just about anything out there, from articles and website content to social media and blog posts, as well as video scripts, e-books and much more. I also produce unique website content ideas by creating titles and article descriptions for various teams of writers. At this time, I manage a small team of writers by assigning batches of articles according to my client's editorial calendar. In addition, I edit, track and file all returned articles in a timely manner, within 48 hours (business days only), unless I have to send them back to a writer for a revisit. One of the best parts of my editing work is being able to make other writers better. I enjoy critiquing their writing and providing constructive criticism. It is fulfilling to watch a writer improve dramatically right before my eyes. That's what I get to do. I consider this a gift, and I am forever grateful for it. I can also provide many of my own pictures, as a published photographer and member of the Plymouth Digital Photographers Club. Many of my photos appear in local magazines, newsletters and newspapers, as well as some websites and blogs. I am skilled at using the latest WordPress SEO and editing tools. I am a fast learner who is always willing to pick up something quickly and efficiently in order to be able to provide the quality work every client deserves. Having worked on the Internet since the beginning, I have a clear understanding of what people want to read online - and how they want to read it. My passion for writing and creating something excellent from nothing more than a blank page shows in everything I do. I never back down from a challenge, because I believe in continuously learning and perfecting my skills, so I can offer my clients the highest level of expertise. If you've read this entire overview, I want to thank you. Although it is long, it covers only a fraction of my work and school experiences. I sincerely hope to hear from you soon, because I hope to be the last editor you'll ever have to hire. Thank you.

You can reach me VIA my Mobile number or email or Skype. I will reply within 4-5 hours to all email inquiries. I guarantee and stand by all of my SEO services. I can beat any real SEO company when it comes to pricing, level of service and results. If i do not rank your website within the agreed upon time frame i will work for Free until the agreed upon results are achieved. This is a fail-safe method that i implement to ensure that all of my clients get the results they deserve. My SEO services include: ORGANIC SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION: Whether you need to focus on a strategy to strengthen your local SEO presence or boost your organic results with a national SEO campaign, getting results to increase your revenue is what our search optimization team is focused on—from strategy to implementation. 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. SOCIAL MEDIA OPTIMIZATION AND MARKETING: As Facebook and other social networks become more and more valuable, our expert social media marketers can help craft a strategy that takes advantage of Facebook advertising services and more. SEARCH-OPTIMIZED DESIGN AND CONVERSION OPTIMIZATION: I can tweak your entire website – or even build one from scratch – that will be search engine friendly and convert leads into action. 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. I also take into consideration the consumer buying process for your industry to identify keywords that are utilized in the beginning and end of the buying process. COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS: Are you neck and neck with the competition and need to know exactly what they’re doing and how? I’ll break down their on- and off-site tactics, potential service providers, budget estimates and more.

My professional writers create unique content that tells your story and explains the benefits of your products or services while delivering your marketing message in a way that is balanced in its SEO value and delivering a clear message to users. 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..

    Anne Balke

    Consultant/Writer/Researcher

    United States - Last active: 10 hours ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 26

    Recognized as a top Upwork/oDesk 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. 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.
