    Croatia - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 3

    Hi, I`m 25 year old nomad currently learning to reappreciate my own country - Croatia. I studied Croatian law, but the highest education in life and languages I got from my travels. The last few years I spent traveling the world as a model, making money while traveling and learning. But don't let the stereotype about models fool you. I always knew my way around words. I grew up in Switzerland, raised by Croatian parents in a German speaking area, which allowed me to simultaneously learn both Croatian and German as my native languages. And to a kid like that, English was no challenge. I started writing early on. At the age of 12 I started working on my first book. At the age of 16 my high school published my book along with some other short stories. I wrote numerous articles for Croatian newspapers and online portals and worked as Editor in Chief of a Croatian radio station before my 20th birthday. In addition to all, I am what you might consider a social media expert. Hashtags, algorithms... I know them, and I know how to place a product on a social platform. I can translate German, English and Croatian. And I can write in any of these 3 languages. I promise fast and effective work, original content and a positive attitude above all.

    English-Arabic Translator

    Palestinian Territories - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 4

    I am an English-Arabic translator. My translation outcome does reflect the real content. It is not word-by-word translation, yet it serves the cultural perspectives and cover the connotative meanings that may be hidden in the source text. Thus, I offer you a professional work that seeks to get the right equivalent in both languages. I have translated many types of texts including different fields such as academic, political, social and technical pieces. I have a bachelor degree in English language and literature. Therefore, I have the ability to write reports, reflections and academic essays perfectly. I also have over three-year experience in making presentations and creating videos using Camtasia and Honestech programs.

    ***How Even Great Businesses Throw Away Big Money Every Single Day (And How You Can Avoid Making The Same Mistake)*** Have you ever wondered why Businesses with a Great Offer, Great Model & Great Service often make Lousy Profits? Conversely, have you ever wanted to know the sneaky secret behind how tiny operations are making Huge Profits? It boils down to this: Weak Businesses TELL Strong Businesses SELL So what’s the difference between TELLING and SELLING? TELLING is when you just describe your offer. Imagine you’re selling Garden Spades… Most businesses will just rave about how sharp the spade-blade is. Or about how sturdy the handle is. SELLING is showing your customer what they ACTUALLY want. And explaining how your product will give it to them. So what’s wrong with TELLING? Don’t your customers know what they want? Not exactly. I will share with you the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT rule of selling ANYTHING. Even if you don’t have any practice and don’t want to hire a pro just yet - applying this simple principle will increase your sales IMMEDIATELY. The rule is: “Your customer has deep-rooted goals. Show them how your offer brings them closer to that goal - and they will buy.” So what does this actually mean? Well, let’s use you reading my letter as an example. You are reading this because you need a writer… But you don’t “want a writer.” Your BIG GOAL is not “to hire a writer.” You don’t wake up in the morning thinking “Damn… I wish I had a writer…” You want PROFITS. You want your businesses to be HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL. You want to SELL MORE STUFF. And your customer is no different. When you find out what your market’s BIG GOAL is… and when you tell them how your offer helps them achieve it - You’re already miles ahead of almost everyone else. And your profits will reflect this. Here’s the kicker though… While this freebie WILL help you increase your sales… it’s only one part of a much more complex game. Writing Copy that gets AMAZING results is not easy. It’s frustrating. It can be a nauseating headache sometimes… And it requires full and undivided attention. That’s where I come in. While you manage your employees - I write Copy. While you plough through your financials - I write Copy. While you’re mining for new offers to add to your business - I write Copy. And when you finally catch a rare moment to kick back and relax - I still write Copy. So I dare-say that I’m actually pretty good at this stuff. Unlike a lot of writers these days - I learned my craft from the works of true masters. Not just people who can write fancy stuff - but people whose writing sold BILLIONS of $ worth of product. (Yup, BILLIONS with a ‘B’) I’ve had the opportunity to absorb the teaching of Copywriting Titans such as: Dan Kennedy John Carlton Gary Halbert Joe Sugarman David Oglivy Ted Nicholas Robert Collier And many, many more… But don’t take it from me, here’s what one happy customer had to say: “Adrian was awesome. He didn't come with a ‘picked-off-the-shelf’ solution, but was truly interested in my story. Furthermore, he was the only professional, who previously to sending me a proposal checked my social media streams, to try to understand a bit more of my personal story. Working with Adrian has been a pleasure. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Will definitely hire him again." So what’s in it for you if you hire me? - Highly-Researched, Highly-Targeted Killer Copy that filters out the tire-kickers, enchants the big spenders & explodes your sales. - A professional, outside look at the obstacles you face in your business. I will help you get unstuck if you’re in a dilemma. I’m a copywriter. And yes, I am trying to sell my Copy services to you right now. But I’m not naive enough to tell you that Copy is the ONLY thing that matters. Sometimes you need to optimize your landing page and make it more user friendly. Other times, you simply need more traffic. Whatever it is, I will make sure that the problem we are tackling is the right problem to tackle. - Full transparency. You will always know what I’m doing, what I’m thinking, and how I will go about it. There’s nothing worse than waiting for a consultant to complete an entire project only to find out that it’s not what you wanted. You won’t have that problem with me. - Two 1-Hour project revisions where I can add any tweaks and changes you need even after the project is complete. And it’s all completely FREE of charge to you. So if you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain (of continuous profits…) Contact me now & let’s talk about how I will help you sell more stuff. All the best, Adrian P.S. If you prefer to chat in Real-Time, find me on Skype at ‘Formless TMF’ (without quotation marks.)
