    I know you. You're probably half an hour into browsing for someone competent and you've dug up nothing but rubbish. The key to success is all about... manipulating conversions. I take your fragile struggling business, and mold it into a kick ass empire that'll be around for your grandkids. I know exactly what your users want, how they want it and what will make them come back for more. Through a series of conversion optimizations and marketing strategies, paired with powerful branding, I'll drive customers away from your competition and to your door step. Still reading this? You're already being converted. See how that works? Here's the shit I've done because you probably care about it: I've been a 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 profiles that were written months ago, and start talking to me in real-time. The contact button is on the right. If you can't find it, then I can't help you.

    Google has changed the search results forever. In 2015 and beyond, your online presence needs to be sustainable, competitive and of high quality. As a Marketing strategist with strong project management skills, i will help you achieve your goals online while monitoring ROI. 1. Top-11 Marketing from +250,000 freelancers (See screenshot below) 2. ~Four years oDesk: 98.7% of all 76 clients gave 5-star feedback, just 1 gave 4.70 ...not bad, right :) 3. Better than 98% according to oDesk SEO test 4. Over 3,300 hours working experience through oDesk and over 80 clients served *** The following stats include oDesk + working offline: A- Over 1,000 hours of Social media Management & Social Strategy. Producing engaging content and making sure your social media gets a good ROI> B- Over 2,000 hours of pure SEO, organic rankings, link building and outreach C- Over 500 hours of writing result-driven, lead generating content D- Over 2,500 hours of Setting up and Developing Digital marketing Strategy, Second opinions, Communication, Project Management, Improving existing Marketing Campaigns on a strategic and tactical level and Team leadership & Building and making sure all of the above comes together. ***Fortune-500 businesses and local companies alike*** Through famous agencies, I did projects for American Express, Expedia, Marriott Hotels, Silvercar and a variety of start-ups and established (local) companies. I set up SEO-teams that vary in size from 2 - 12 people for clients and mostly act as an SEO-specialist myself. Digital marketing strategies, Link building, outreach and onSite optimisation have no secrets for me. NO GOALS SET YET? NO PLAN? ....No problem.... Let's develop those! I will help you setup a solid digital strategy and plan with KPI's, we can do a keyword and/or competitor analysis too, so you're never starting something without having a solid foundation. I have a University degree in Business (Major business, minor marketing) and broad experience with working in advertising agencies. Whether B2B or B2C, I believe passionately that good marketing essentials are the same. We all are emotional beings looking for relevance, context and connection. I'm from Amsterdam (The Netherlands, EU) and my nationality is Dutch, i have lived in Berlin and Spain and currently live in Panama City. Please be realistic about budget vs. goals though, if your main competitors are spending +$10,000/month on expertise you won't get much with let's say $500/ month http://www.bouwcenterhci.nl/ (construction) +71,000 visitors/yr. http://www.profilerscommunicatie.nl/ (advertising) +24,000 visitors/yr. http://www.lighthouseip.com/ (Optimising their website) https://www.americanexpress.com/ (built over 50 high quality links) http://www.oxenerschoenen.nl/ (UGG luxury footwear) +57,000 visitors/yr. oDesk SEO test: the test says "Top 10%" but if you click the test results you can see that i'm actually in the top 1.4% of everyone that ever made this test. Please research and click "details". *** THINKING OF EXPANDING INTERNATIONALLY? IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY! My *secret* passions are Medical and Technical writing. I LOVE to get to the bottom of things and research / write about a variety of topics. Actually, I have been writing articles and scripts since i was 15, in a variety of languages. 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. INTERVIEWING ME? READ THIS PLEASE 1. MAXIMUM 10 Minutes Skype Interview is included 2. Everything more than 10 minutes will be charged 3. NO FREE advice or long business cases -- this needs to be paid. I serve many small clients and depend on working my hours per week. Each hour i spend doing an interview, shifts away from the hours i can book for other clients. 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 :)

    Experience makes the difference between the average and the excellent. In creating online experiences that matter, you need a dedicated professional who works hard and has native skills - qualities I own and use with great respect towards the team I work with and your audience. How can your presence be different, unique and appealing in an online environment many times ruled by cliches and patterns? By adapting rules and innovating according to your distinct needs. By believing in all the differences people share and striving to customize your online presence accordingly. From the name of your company to deploying a project, your business has to speak to various people's needs and relate to their feelings. By helping you communicate who you are through a reliable online experience from start to finish, I support your causes and give others reasons to believe in you. If you feel we're on the same length, than we have a professional future together and I'm looking forward to sharing my skills and commitment with you and your business.

    Consultant/Writer/Researcher

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 21

    Recognized top 5% oDesk contractors. I have the skills and experience necessary to complete any of the following jobs: complex research, writing, editing, basic websites, business consulting (online marketing strategies for small businesses) or other similar projects. 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. [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. As a result, some of the links in my odesk profile many not be working. Just ask if you need to see more work samples and I will get them to you.] 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 ideas and putting 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. 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. 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 decisision 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 also set up a Skype account if you are outside of the US.
