    Paulo Amaral Agency Contractor

    Result-driven branding consultant, copywriter, and sales coach

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello! For 14 years I have been growing companies through effective and out-of-the-box marketing strategies. At first it was my own companies. Then friends sought me for advice and I'd get endless invitations to become their partners in existing and upcoming businesses. Before I knew, I had become a marketing consultant and was spending my days helping clients grow their businesses. I could talk about the IT company that I rebranded as technology consultants, and as results, their contracts increased 4 times in price. I could also talk about the tables and chairs company that, without spending a single dollar in advertising, got on the first page of Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, sold to government agencies, including the U.S. Navy, famous universities, and Fortune 500 companies. And I could tell you about other clients' success stories. But I'd prefer to talk about you and how to make yours a success story. --- / --- \ --- Services Description: CLIENT ACQUISITION AND RETENTION We help companies get new clients and keep the current ones. Most marketing agencies and professionals focus solely on helping their customers get new clients. They ignore that it is easier and more profitable to keep current clients satisfied than it is to get new clients. UNCOVERING YOUR REAL NEEDS We start by understanding the real needs and goals of clients and helping them getting there. The main challenge with marketing today is that there are too many choices available; it can be daunting deciding what the best strategy for your firm is. For example, people often think that they need one specific solution, say a beautiful new website. But that might not be what they really need. Chances are your site is fine, and instead of a total makeover you simply need a remodeling. Instead of simply selling you a website, we'd prefer to talk to you and understand your real goals and then create and implement a strategy to get you there. We work with firms of different sizes and budgets. We create beautiful and functional websites that clearly describe what you do, how you will defend/support your clients, and how they can contact you. Then we can get you on top of Google (but it takes time), and bring leads to your site (immediately) through online advertising (pay-per click or display ads). Also, we can increase your reputation online and help you communicate with prospective clients even before they need your services through effective social media marketing. And when you get prospects knocking on your door or calling you, we will teach you how to turn them into paying clients who will tell Here's a list of services that we provide: Branding Marketing Consulting Web Design and Development Sales Coaching Mobile Application Testing, UI/UX Website Conversion Optimization Marketing Planning Copywriting Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Graphic Design Video Production Printing Pay-Per-Click Advertisement campaign creation and management Social Media Management Web Hosting and Security Marketing Audits Branding

    Do you need someone who can make your business vision come to life? Someone who can map out the right path and then drive the implementation along the way. If you need someone who knows how to get the most out of Ontraport (OfficeAutopilot), then I'm your guy. As the former VP of Business Development at Ontraport, I worked directly with the CEO to assist over 1000 companies evaluate and implement the software. I can help you remove just about any bottle neck or implement any marketing strategy with the software. Here's the main problem I see with Ontraport (OfficeAutopilot)... If you don't know how to use the automation and others features, your business strategy is limited to what you did in the past. So you end up using it like an glorified auto-responder. And you're barely scratching the surface of what's possible for your business. I can help you better implement Ontraport in your business.
