    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 :)

    Morgan Fraser

    SEO Specialist & Social Media Consultant

    United States - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

    My name is Morgan Fraser. My specialties are search engine optimization consulting, social network marketing, and all types of writing and editing. I have a degrees in print journalism and Spanish and have published two wine-pairing cookbooks for niche regions in Washington State. I first learned the basics of online advertising using keyword targeting when I was a sales associate at Zango, where I was on the team of high-spend advertisers and managed more than $450,000 a month in keyword targeted advertising for my clients. Since then, I have learned more about targeted marketing on search engines and social networks through freelance consulting and building my own publishing business for my books. My specialty is a one-time "SEO startup package," which includes the following: *Generate keywords to use in on the site and in other relevant posts on other sites or in directories. *Write, edit or rewrite some of the text on the website to get a better ranking using relevant search terms. *Register the website with Google and Bing/Yahoo! *Add site to DMOZ and other smaller relevant online directories *Implement Google Analytics for more in-depth statistical data on who is visiting the site and when. *Analyze site and come up with a list of recommendations to get more traffic, increase search engine rank and improve user experience. I have more than 6 years experience in the online marketing and writing field, and would love to work with you to better improve your website's visibility and/or user engagement. Below is a recommendation from one of my clients, who found me through word of mouth: "We were delighted to utilize her SEO (Search Engine Optimization) skills, to help place our website higher into Google and other search engines rankings. She accomplished this by evaluating our prior ranking, analyzing our prior use and effectiveness of search engine registries, keywords and metatags, and Google Analytics. She was quick, effective, and reasonably priced. We saw increased sales results after only 3 days of her work, both in the packing department and in Google Analytics graphs. She also recommended generating missing keywords germane to our product line and rewrite some of the text on the site to get better rankings, using relevant search terms. She performed this work, as well as training our office staff in some startup Facebook strategies." As the owner of Nautical Decor Store, I can wholeheartedly recommend Morgan, for any job she puts her heart to, in the writing and internet fields. Please do not hesitate to contact me in regards to similar work you may be considering for Morgan's skills. Sincerely, Scott Tucker Nautical Decor Store

    Top 10 Percent on oDesk for Online Marketing

    United States - Last active: 29 days ago - Tests: 6

    ►Top 10% on oDesk for Google Analytics ►Top 20% on oDesk for Google Adwords --I use both of those tools together simultaneously to create positive ROI for my clients. Examples of work provided on request. ________________________________________________________ ►Top 20% on oDesk for SEO - I current consult and provide strategy and ideas for SEO projects but do *not* do linkbuilding because of the risks associated with current and future Google algorithm updates. Anyone that says their SEO plan for you involves 'tailored' or 'many linkes from PR5+ sites' is going to hurt your website. Pick someone like me that does this stuff for a salaried living. ►1st place on oDesk for English spelling test and Top 20% for English skills - Many people on oDesk can speak relatively good fluent English. Few can write compelling ad text and website copy that connects with native English speakers. ________________________________________________________ Who I am: Online marketing expert with 7 years of experience currently based in Denver, CO, USA. My specialties are in Google Adwords, Analytics, Bing Ads, and on-site SEO. I am certified by Google in all available Adwords exams and also in Bing's Adcenter. I'm currently looking for a few select clients to work on a contract basis for any of the above services. I'm not interested in working with people that cannot afford my reasonable hourly rate (given my experience and certifications) or those that do not have a large enough retainer for me to improve campaigns and see drastic ROI increases. Who I am looking to work for: An established small business or agency that is interested in contracting out freelance Adwords, Analytics, or Bings Ads work. This is someone that is has clearly identified goals (sales, leads, etc) and is interested in more of a long-term partnership instead of short one-offs. -I believe that character matters. I'm not here to make a quick buck, I want to provide real value and create a trusting and long-lasting business relationship for a fair price. Nothing more, nothing less. -Relationships do matter. When people say things like, "It's just business" that means they are in the business of ripping people off. I give honest and direct answers and will not steer you in the wrong direction, even if it means less money for me. Honesty and transparency = greater long term rewards.
