    Online marketing consultant, co-author of "Harmonious Web Design"

    Bulgaria - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 7

    ## My job is to get your products into the hands of people who want and need them My job, as an online marketing consultant is to help you turn your website visitors into prospects, leads and, ultimately, your paying customers. But the thing is... you can’t force people to buy a product with some sleazy copywriting trick because: 1. If you’re selling a crappy product, no copy can make up for the bad reviews that your customers will leave on social media. 2. You can only convince someone to buy something they want and need—something that solves a problem for them or something that they already thought about buying. For example, nobody can convince me to buy the latest Michelin tires because I don’t own a car. I just don’t need them. And so, I can't help you trick anyone. But I _can_ help you get your product to the people who need it. ## Here are some of the things that I've done in the last 3 years at Braiv Ltd. **Marketing strategy & CRO** * a set of A/B tests on the landing pages of the 3 OpenCart plugins, achieving a lift in conversions with as much as 3% * an email campaign, among others, that converted 13% of the subscribers for the book I co-authored "Harmonious Web Design" into paying customers * market research that lead to the creation of "Harmonious Web Design" * automation of our sales funnel for "Harmonious Web Design". I planned an entire workflow using Drip that requires zero of our presence. It is a complete sales funnel making hundreds of dollars per month unattended. * one particular Twitter campaign that got us a sale of "Harmonious Web Design" within the first day, increased the traffic from Twitter to from 0 to 15% in 1 month. * a content marketing strategy that increased the organic traffic to by 70% within 6 months **Writing** * I blog about conversion rate optimization and copywriting on my personal website (SansMagic), on Quora (Gergana Dimowa), reddit (/u/sansmagic) and Medium (@gerrydimova). This got me a number of invitations to work with companies like Stripe. * a post on Quora that went viral (2.5k+ upvotes) * changed only the headline of a post on reddit and it went viral (1k+ upvotes) * combined raw text and edited it into a 8k+ word ebook * wrote a 15k+ word ebook * wrote 50+ high quality posts on my blog, Medium and Quora * edited and rewrote 30+ blog posts ## Here’s what some of the people that we helped said This is brilliant. Brutally honest, you didn’t mess around. I really am humbled by this and look forward to re-designing the page. —Nep Orshiso for the 20-page copy review I did for his website As I already told you on Twitter, your E-Mail completely blew my mind. I love your examples (as they remove any vagueness) and if you don’t mind I will work most of them into the page. I am rebuilding the landing page with your advice in mind. —Michael Trojanek for the detailed copy review + copy suggestions I did for his landing page ## Want to find out if I can help you?
