    WordPress + Loading Speed + SSL + Optimization

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

    My specialty is loading speed and on-site optimization re: WordPress websites. Specifically, I can optimize your DNS records, web server (VPS), WordPress (cache, plugins, etc) and source code (HTML, CSS, JS, fonts, images, etc) to be more efficient and secure. I am well versed in WordPress (#1 on oDesk), WooCommerce, Nginx servers, CloudFlare, SSL certificates, and SEO. Loading speed and SSL are now two of the biggest factors in SEO according to Google, whose robots are constantly analyzing the quality of your website. Don't get left behind by the competition. https://www.littlebizzy.com/seo-is-dead (case study) Whether you need a one-time consultation, or fully managed WordPress hosting, I am not shy in making important suggestions that will improve the experience of your customers. I can work alone as a project manager of sorts or alongside your current team members. I stay in close touch with your team via email, Google Docs, and Skype. My recommended services: CloudFlare (DNS) - http://goo.gl/CMyxyZ Digital Ocean (VPS) - http://goo.gl/kY6AWB ($10 coupon) MaxCDN (CDN) - http://goo.gl/qawqv6 CodeGuard (backups) - http://goo.gl/FNF2j5 DigiCert (SSL) - http://goo.gl/bW5KJf YMLP (newsletters) - http://goo.gl/YqUFHi For email, I recommend Google Apps (name@company.com) + SendGrid (for things like lost password reminders, WooCommerce notifications, etc). My oDesk policies: - Not able to sign NDAs - Not available for phone calls - Free 30 minute Skype consultation - VPS servers do not have email services - When migration begins, please pause all work - Not able to join 3rd-party project management apps - Not available for tutoring, training, or creating manuals/guides - I automatically close out hourly contracts over $500 (renewal requested) - As a policy, I only work with DO's $10/mo VPS or higher, one domain per VPS *Serious clients only please, as I'm unable to offer "budget" pricing. I leave all of my oDesk clients positive 5-star reviews on completed projects, and I offer a 100% refund guarantee ~

    My career so far has enabled me to have a wide array of experiences and build a large base of satisfied customers in a number of different areas two of which are detailed below. First, I am a very experienced Joomla CMS system administrator having developed and maintained dozens of sites for customers all over the United States. My services in this area include site upgrades and migrations as well as full site development. I own and operate my own hosting company which operates on some of the fastest servers available. References and sample sites are available on request. I am also a respected music education author and nationally known speaker on music education and educational technology topics.

    Web Copywriter and Content Strategist

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    ***About Me***_______________________________________________________________ I specialize in one thing and one thing only: writing personality-packed, research-based copy that gets you results online. Currently, I work full-time at Rocket Media, a web design + internet marketing agency (http://rocketmedia.com/). Over the past few years, I've written online content for dozens of our clients in a punctual, professional manner. For what it's worth: I have a B.A in Communications and an M.B.A focused in marketing. So, yeah, I work hard. ***What I can wordsmith for you***_______________________________________________ *Website content (home page, about us page, product pages, etc) *Landing pages *Email newsletters *Blog Articles *Ebooks *Case studies *Social media contest copy *PPC and Social Ads *Transactional emails *Email automation workflows Note: If you need me to work with a team, I have experience working with web designers and developers to write copy for responsive website redesigns. ***How we'll work wonderfully together***______________________________________________ Any writer can say they're professional, so let me show you that I am by explaining the best way we can work together. (Note: Obviously this process can change depending on the work—especially for smaller projects—but it's a good starting point). *Step 1: One FREE 1-hour call* Before you commit to hiring me, we can talk in more detail about your project, including: *What your big goals are (web copy is merely the means to a larger end) *What your current problems are *What results do you want to get out of my services (dolla dolla bill, y'all!) *More about you and your target audience Hit me up on Skype to chat about these details. After the call, I'll detail a scope of work, time needed to complete the work and pricing. If we jive, then it's on to... *Step 2: Deep dive research* Feeling comfy enough to hire me? Good. All good copy is research-based copy. So at this point I'll uncover more about: *Who you—or your brand— are so that I can write in your tone of voice *Your products and services, so I can uncover their features and benefits *The specifics of your target audience, using the right tools and online research methods (how deep I go here depends on how well you know your audience and your budget) *Step 3: Create a strategy and/or needed deliverables* Once I've gather enough information, I'll create a plan of attack and/or review deliverables with you. These can include: *Target audience personas *Voice and tone guides *Email workflow overview *Editorial calendars (for articles and newsletters) This will get you and I on the same page before I write a word. *Step 4: I write; you review* Self explanatory. You'll receive a copy deck to review, and we'll hash it out cage-match style. *Step 5: Measure and adjust* If we're working together on an on-going project and I have access to analytics of any sort, I'll use what I learn from that to alter the copy or adjust how I writer for the next assignment. Step 6: You and I party and leave each other 5-star reviews. Because, in the end, we should enjoy life. :) Sound good? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
