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 :)

    Hooker.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago

    I'm a world-class hooker. No, not the sleazy cheap type that requires a penicillin shot. My "hooker skills" are all about... manipulating conversions. I take your fragile sad-excuse of a business, and mold it into a kick ass empire you can show your grandkids. I know exactly what your users want, how they want it and what makes them happy. Through a series of conversion optimizations, and marketing strategies, paired with hypnotic copywriting, I'll drive customers away from your competition and to your door step. Still reading this? You're already "hooked." See how that works? Here's the shit I've done because you probably care about it: I've been a co-founder of three start-ups. Two of them were acquired and killed off because it rocked the status quo. You're looking at the third one. I've been grilled and have survived YCombinator, Angelpad, and 500 startup interviews. Piece of cake. I've backpacked across South America and South Asia with zero cash. I survived by talking my way into getting food, a hot shower, and a couple of bachelorettes. Takeaway: I've been there. Done that. If you want your business to grow, you're looking at possibly the one person that can do so. STOP wasting your time by reading something I wrote months ago (this profile) and start talking to me in real-time. The button is on the right. If you still can't find it, even I can't help you.

    Netherlands - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 7

    I love making apps, like my latest project: Rallypoint, sort of like Stack Overflow for private teams, with a focus on quickly moving on and not wasting time. www.getrallypoint.com I can get passionate about perfecting a front-end flow and layout with HTML / CSS and Javascript, designing entire back end systems using Node.js / MongoDB or the good old PHP / MySQL and turning raw ideas into reality. I'm goal oriented and have no trouble constantly zooming in and out. I think about the product from end to end, from owner to user. Entrepreneurship is in my blood. Ever since I was just a teenager I worked on getting better at web development. I'm always looking for ways to challenge and improve myself. Over the years I've gotten heaps of experience in: * HTML / CSS / LESS / SASS * Javascript, both front and backend (React, Node, Flux, Backbone, Angular, Hapi, Express etc.) * PHP * MySQL / NoSQL database design * MVC Frameworks (Laravel, CodeIgniter, FuelPHP, etc.) Ofcourse I'm proficient in any tools that I need to do my job properly. I use Slack, Skype, Email and Google Hangouts to communicate, Sketch and Photoshop to work convert designs from mockup to HTML, Trello / Basecamp / Highrise for project and client management. I've got a smartphone and tablet and am hardly ever disconnected.
