    SEO/SMM/PR/Publicity/Comms/Online Marketing Strategy/Translation

    Serbia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 17

    Strong white hat SEO skills, I continue to grow and follow closely, on daily basis, all changes introduced by Google, incl. latest Penguine modifications. I am very careful with job selection, I don't apply or take what I can not deliver for sure. No generic emails/applications. Highly experienced in SMM, particularity Facebook marketing. I would be a perfect choice for jobs that need a prompt reaction regardless of the amount of job or time of the day. I love to work with start-up projects, ideally customer-oriented (customer perception related) jobs. SEO is my personal favorite, but I don't believe in fix-and-go solutions - it has to be a constant process. Online Marketing specialist, established blogger, ex TV & Radio journalist and as an ex PR executive with an extraordinary technical skills and advanced web development techniques and intensive experience with several major international organizations, mostly within communications, on-line marketing and customer-support departments, I can cover variety of jobs. I joined oDesk only in December 2014, but I have done/participated in more than 30 on-line marketing related projects through other similar platforms over the last 2 years. Here - so far, so good: 5 stars, happy clients, above expectations execution. I transcribe and do translations, only when I am bored and available due to lack of other jobs that I enjoy more, but if I apply for it, you can expect it done in highly professional manner. Voice-over in Serbian is my additional formidable skill - over 20 years of TV/Radio experience. Due to family issues, I need to start working from home only. Therefore, I seek online jobs, with entry level/low rates included, in order to get some positive feedback to continue climbing around here, but I am not really interested in data-entry jobs without added value.

I've already worked for 6 different companies in the last 4 years, 5 from U.S and one from Brazil, in their customer support & public relations department. "À tribuna" was the first company I joined in CS and I used to answer clients calls and help them schedule and edit their ads for printing in the newspaper, at Ingreso Cybernetico (www.ingresocybernetico.com), I used to engage and help clients through live chat (zopim), tickets (our own system and ZenDesk), e-mails (hotmail and gmail), calls (skype), through social media (facebook & twitter) and also check translations and the programmers' work. I had to manage the entire operation for their brazilian customers.

I've also worked for four more companies (ALL FROM THE U.S.A): Omaze (fund raising), KeepSafe (App development), Gosu (Game production) and HandPrint (Smartphone rental in the U.S.A).

I've also worked at Teleco.IO (www.teleco.io), Handprint (www.handprint.me) and Grace Smith TV (www.gracesmithtv.com) as a community manager.

I'm still building my own digital marketing portfolio. (www.mmnbrasileiro.com, a niche blog) I have the highest score in odesk's EN-PTBR translation test (First place out of 2.678 people.) I'm a professional translator with more than 5 years of experience, I started at the age of 17. I've already worked in several projects online (see my odesk profile) and offline (International events such as "Stone Fair"). I'm a professional voice actor since 2010, I can provide several samples of my work if needed. I'm Young, ethical, diligent, dedicated, experienced, skilled and FAST. I look forward to do my best for you and your company! Hire me and you won't regret having me aboard, let's do it!

    I have been a translator, interpreter and tutor for 6 years now. When experience meets quality, you'll get yourself a man by the name of Yoshua; and yes, that's me! Native speakers usually admit that I speak like them - thus the proficiency level. ;) Rates actually vary depending on so many things - the one on my profile page is when you want to hire me as an interpreter. Talk to me if you need price quotations (there is a minimum figure that I would work for though - but believe me that you'll get what you pay for!). Have a great day/night!
