    Are you looking for a copywriter to add REAL value by helping improve on your product or service? Someone to bounce ideas off? To generate increased sales and revenue for you? I take time to listen, think outside the box, and position you using my expertise as a writer. I’ll ask a lot of questions to save you time and money in the long run. Just one idea I contribute could be worth much more than the hours for which you’ll pay. Here’s my offer: • Freedom. I’ll take your idea and run with it until it works. • Results. I’ll deliver top shelf on time – every time. • Peace of mind, as you put your project in my capable hands. • High ROI, as my dedication furthers your vision and goals. If you pay your plumber $90 per hour but expect someone with a Masters degree to churn out an article for a pittance, please don't contact me. I only accept offers to which I feel a strong connection. I prefer to work with the best - those who see how good writing can add value to a bottom line. If you have a serious offer, I invite you to leverage my expertise to your company’s success.

    Digital Branding Strategist | SEO | SMM | Copywriter | WordPress

    India - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 15

    I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them. - Pablo Picasso I am a Technologist at Brain, Writer at Heart and Interpreneur by Choice. Creativity is one of the most powerful aspects behind the existence of the world and I am passionate to implement creativity in its best form. Today, businesses are changing with the changing face of Internet. Online Business, Brand Management, SEO, SMM are the new buzzwords re engineering today's dynamic business environment. Romancing with Words, Acumen for Technology, Passion for SEO, Thinking Out of the Box and developing killer Business Strategies send me goosebumps. I love the thrill experienced behind creating a beautiful World of Words. I help businesses in the domain of SEO Analysis, SEO Consultancy, SMM or Social Media Marketing, Copywriting, Brand Building, Reputation Management, online business strategies and online marketing strategies. If I do something, I do it the best else I simply don't do it. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My love and passion for creativity pushed me to this creative world of freelancing. It was a fine beautiful morning when I decided to make WordPress my playground to learn, experience, experiment and disseminate my technical knowledge soaked in the power of creative writing. I started with a single site WordPress installation for my blog. During this exciting journey, I unlearned, learned, relearned, researched, experimented and practiced many technical and behavioral aspects of single site WordPress development. It didn't took me long enough to take another decision to move on in my quest to discover some other unexplored knowledge territories. I delved deeper into WordPress and started playing with more complex configurations. Today, I am running a network of my personal websites developed on WordPress multisite (WPMU). Along side, I also developed my skills as an SEO consultant and SMM consultant in my effort to rank these sites higher on Google SERP. I also realized that optimizing WordPress sites for speed is also an important aspect behind improving site SEO. Today, all my sites are running at blazing fast lightning speed. Being gifted with a strong will of an Entrepreneur, brain of a technologist, heart of a writer and an acumen of businessman, I developed online marketing strategies for many startups. I also helped these businesses to develop a profitable revenue model based on the foundation of sustainable business growth. Online branding, online business strategies, online reputation management are some other domains attracting my interest. I have helped many people create their own success stories powered with my professional expertise. I utilize my multi-functional skill set to help online businesses achieve their short term as well as long term goals. I carry a rich experience of around 12 years as an Associate Professor (IT and Business Management), earned in a couple of esteemed Technical and Business Management Institutions. I know how to harness the power of IT for creating some exciting business opportunities and also to manage them efficiently. My professional background carries a mix of technical as well as managerial skill set. A long professional journey of around 15 years has helped me understand this world from a business perspective, although my human perspective is always over and above my business perspective. At the end of the day, I am a simple human being like you, who likes to live his life to the fullest. Please don't treat me as an Expert as there is so much more to learn. I have learned a little so far and intend to learn a lot more during my creative journey as a freelancer consultant. Learning is a continuous process and I am a firm believer of this statement. The day I will stop learning, I will be a dead man. Learning is like breathing to me, I can't survive without learning something new with every passing moment. Congratulations for reading my long profile all through the end. It means you don't suffer from short attention span. It would be a pleasure to talk to you. Please don't hesitate to get in touch. I am sure, we can mutually help each other. At least, I can learn something from you and may be, you can also learn something from me. Don't worry, I don't bite unless and until asked to do so. :)
