    Top 10 Percent on oDesk for Online Marketing

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 6

    ►Top 10% on oDesk for Google Analytics ►Top 20% on oDesk for Google Adwords --I use both of those tools together simultaneously to create positive ROI for my clients. Examples of work provided on request. ________________________________________________________ ►Top 20% on oDesk for SEO - I current consult and provide strategy and ideas for SEO projects but do *not* do linkbuilding because of the risks associated with current and future Google algorithm updates. Anyone that says their SEO plan for you involves 'tailored' or 'many linkes from PR5+ sites' is going to hurt your website. Pick someone like me that does this stuff for a salaried living. ►1st place on oDesk for English spelling test and Top 20% for English skills - Many people on oDesk can speak relatively good fluent English. Few can write compelling ad text and website copy that connects with native English speakers. ________________________________________________________ Who I am: Online marketing expert with 7 years of experience currently based in Denver, CO, USA. My specialties are in Google Adwords, Analytics, Bing Ads, and on-site SEO. I am certified by Google in all available Adwords exams and also in Bing's Adcenter. I'm currently looking for a few select clients to work on a contract basis for any of the above services. I'm not interested in working with people that cannot afford my reasonable hourly rate (given my experience and certifications) or those that do not have a large enough retainer for me to improve campaigns and see drastic ROI increases. Who I am looking to work for: An established small business or agency that is interested in contracting out freelance Adwords, Analytics, or Bings Ads work. This is someone that is has clearly identified goals (sales, leads, etc) and is interested in more of a long-term partnership instead of short one-offs. -I believe that character matters. I'm not here to make a quick buck, I want to provide real value and create a trusting and long-lasting business relationship for a fair price. Nothing more, nothing less. -Relationships do matter. When people say things like, "It's just business" that means they are in the business of ripping people off. I give honest and direct answers and will not steer you in the wrong direction, even if it means less money for me. Honesty and transparency = greater long term rewards.

    Romania - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 20

    With over 10 years of SEO and web development experience I can do a lot for your business. From creating a website until reaching top positions in the major search engines. I can manage multiple small or large projects at once and I can advise on website migrations.I use only quality white hat SEO methods for guaranteed results and I am up to date with all the changes in this industry. On my last workplace I was the manager of the SEO department at an international media company covering Romania, Hungary, Austria and Ukraine that had a total of over 100 web portals and over 500 employees. I have created and designed until now over 200 websites mostly by using third party CMS web software like Wordpress/Joomla and I helped out over 100 different websites in different niches and from different countries to improve their rankings. I am punctual, I like to deliver the projects on time, I am integrating quick into the work environment, I have the ability to organize and manage multiple projects and the capability of adapting and learning new SEO rules and apply them. I am also interested on everything that is new in this field and I am up to date with all the news. Here is a short list of what I can do for your business: Keyword Research Reports Mobile Friendly Website Optimization Onpage/Offpage optimization Image/Video Optimization Local Search Optimization Content Writing/Publishing Social media management I am not a programmer so I do not touch complex changes in the website. I'm not your guy if you want a custom plugin or a function to be created. My work as a consultant contains detailed information on how to improve elements of your website. The actual implementation will be done by your programmers or on some cases by me. My offpage work consists in implementing and suggesting the best ways to achieve quality links from link analysis to implementation based on the client's budget. I do not make AdWords campagins or ads optimization (for that I have a colleague).
