Kenya - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 4

I am glad that you are reading my profile, thank you. Below is a self-description of my life’s experience and abilities. I look forward to your finding me to be the kind of person you would like to hire. The education system in my country Kenya has English as the official teaching and examining language in all subjects except in the national language, Swahili. Therefore, those of us who have more than a passing interest in the written word get to be quite good in English. For four of the six years of my high school, I went to a school ran by Catholic missionaries where the vast majority of teachers were of British descend. Before the internet, books and magazines were my constant companions; I am an avid reader and a movie buff. I discovered I could write while still in school; I found that I have a way with words and can come up with some impressive turns of phrase. My vivid imagination, fueled by watching a great number of movies, comes into play when am screenwriting. I am self-taught in this and I know that a screenplay’s three-act structure must have well timed plot points and creative twists and turns that stir up the audiences’ emotions. I have had as my schoolteacher people from India, Scotland, Ireland, England, Canada and the USA; I have watched countless English movies from all over the world; I have inevitably developed an ear for accents, enabling me to transcribe English audios in any format required. I think of myself as an intelligent and multi-talented artistic person; a fast learner capable of adapting to new ideas and ways of doing things. Thank you for reading this far down. I hope the above shines a light on the kind of person you would be hiring. If there is anything you would like me to clarify further, or if you have any question; please ask; I am willing to take a test interview to help you decide. In seeking to be hired, my honest intention is to get your appreciation and approval of my skills. I will therefore give your assignments my undivided attention and diligence.

To: Inventor Re: Patent Research, Due Diligence, Drafting, Filing Thank you for seeking patent support of your invention, including a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), search, due diligence strategy, drafting, filing, and possibly prosecution. If I have the privilege to work with you, I offer exceptional quality and cost effective patent agent work, including but not limited to your desired noted technology. I can support your presumed micro entity status filing with discussion together to evaluate your best options regarding preparation of an NDA, a search, strategy, drafting, and possible revision, of your provisional application (PA) and/or non-provisional application (NPA). This includes, but not limited to, learning about you, what you already have regarding your patent, like sketches or existing write-ups, and any time constraints that I should know about. From initial writings of what you seek, it appears you possibly desire confirmation for preparation and filing of a PA, and eventually a possible NPA. A search is best to be done first, with a talk together to see what specification and drawing has been already prepared. Given your interest presuming of completing quickly, combined with an unknown budget to complete the work, this can be further discussed at any time that is convenient to you to arrange a reasonable relation between work to be done and your allowable budget. I look forward to helping you in all ways for your patent needs. We can connect by any means at times convenient to you.

United States - Tests: 27 - Portfolio: 97

*** Top 0.1% of Upwork Contractors - Official Top-Rated Freelancer *** I seek to fulfill assignments for all my clients in a quick and professional manner. My three watchwords are Reliability, Consistency, and Honesty. You, my potential client, are likely looking to use the internet to market your product or service. You may lack a particular skill or piece of marketing expertise, and you’re looking for a contractor to help you solve your problems. Hopefully, I can help you end your search; I’ve been helping clients solve their internet marketing problems, both large and small, for nearly 15 years now. In just the past 12 months right here on oDesk, I have received near-perfect feedback from over 75 separate clients. So, how can I help you, specifically? Most people who find their way here will be in need of a writer. The written (or increasingly, typed) word still remains the basis of all communication, and therefore, all marketing efforts as well. That’s why I’ve gone out of my way to master the English language. I’m actually one of the 50 highest-rated contractors in the entire U.S.A. in terms of Written English proficiency according to Brainbench, the worlds’ largest third-party skills certification site. I can imbue even the most pedestrian of prose with a verve and vitality anyone would be hard-pressed to match. If you need simple content, such as static web pages, blog posts, product reviews and the like, I can discover the unique selling points of your product or service and create crisp, clear, top-quality content that will convert to sales for you at higher rates than you thought possible. Or perhaps you are in the market for something a bit more complex? Have no fear – the more challenging the project the more I enjoy working on it. Thusly, I also write Press Releases (fully AP formatted and styled), do resume touch-ups, personal Bios, eBooks, video scripts, storyboarding, and more. If it can be written, I can write it, and at the very highest level of quality. I even work on Academic and authority-level writing. I can assist with editing your dissertation, proofreading your thesis, or researching and drafting industry white papers or grants. I’m also sensitive to the needs of ESL students who understand their content but have difficulty demonstrating that fact in English. Maybe you don’t need any content at the moment though. What can I do for clients who need other services? Quite a bit. My expertise extends into technical areas as well. I’m able to offer cutting-edge web design services, and also offer fully administered SEM campaigns. Whether you are looking to get organic results in SEO, go viral with Social Media Marketing (SMM), or acquire targeted traffic through a PPC campaign, I can assist you every step of the way, from campaign design, to execution, to the ongoing monitoring and maintenance required to successfully execute a modern inbound marketing campaign. I’m AdWords certified and have agency-level subscriptions to all major industry software. I even have a fully equipped recording studio available at my home office and am an accomplished Audio-Visual engineer; I can produce anything from simple YouTube style explainer videos or personal testimonials to full on custom animation designed from the ground up to suit your project. Finally, you might be here because you’re in need of a business consultant, someone who can help you make sense of the big picture. You may need help tweaking a business or marketing plan, or assistance developing a process document. You may even just want some old fashioned niche research done. I can assist you with these projects, and more. All of my strategic advice is predicated on in-depth research, and focuses on demonstrating clear ROI to clients as soon as possible. So if you find yourself in need of top-quality content of any sort, assistance developing or implementing a modern marketing campaign, or a business consultant to help you navigate a particularly thorny development, please reach out to me. You and your bottom line will both be glad you did. I look forward to hearing from you!
