    Digital Marketer

    Estonia - Last active: 01/03/2014

    My experience covers various things from creation to marketing & distribution (incl. affiliate) of online services or products. Things I do: 1. Development and implementation of digital marketing strategies for small and large online businesses. Strong focus on automation and product improvement. 2. Automated email marketing strategies using most modern platforms such as GetVero, Intercom, Autopilot or others. 3. E-commerce and performance tracking strategies for your business. Definition of KPIs and business intelligence dashboards. 4. Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Competition reports & consulting on weak spots that help you take action. I have proficient knowledge on the topic and pedantic approach to on-page factors. My "to-do" lists to improve your rankings do not include bullshit steps most "experts" provide which are compiled by cheap software like Internet Business Promoter (not that they are worthless). I can compile huge lists of backlink database of your competitors to help your "match & exceed" approach. 5. Web development & front end UX audits. Development roadmaps & web optimization tasks. If you already have a product or website, I will provide constructive criticism and actionable steps you (or your developer) can do to make it work and sell better. 6. Creative copy. How would you react to your product if it was the first time you saw it? Would it be a Space Odyssey’s "HAL9000" or Interstellar’s "TARS"? Help me turn your product from a human-enslaving artificial intelligence into the coolest robot sidekick. 7. PCC (Google AdWords) consulting & minor jobs such as setup of branding and remarketing (retargeting) campaigns. Ad Copy optimization and bulk keywords research. 8. Affiliate marketing, my experience covers being both an affiliate marketer as well as affiliate manager. If you run business with strong affiliate distribution I may help with a thing or two. 9. Wire-framing and prototyping new products in HTML/CSS/JS. Some of the products or services I am using: • Segment • Zopim • GetVero • Moz.com • Ahrefs • SEO PowerSuite • Market Samurai • SEMrush • Google Analytics • Google Webmaster Tools • Google Developer Insights • Google AdWords • AdRoll • Quantcast • Bananatag • Invision • Bootstrap
