    ***UPDATE 2012 *** Until this update, my rate was still listed at the rate I was charging when freelance consulting in between the sale of my last company and the formation (2010) of my new company. I frequently receive project invitations and I would really like to work with some of these companies and start-ups; financially however, it has just not been worth interrupting my work. I have since updated my rate and invite you to contact me if you are interested in short term consultations. The rate is not negotiable but even just an hour of my time is likely to save you exponentially by pointing you in the right direction. Looking forward to working with some fine companies. - Salesforce CRM Consulting - Lean Startup Planning - Strategy Generation / Implementation - Wordpress - Direct Mail Marketing - Systems and Process Design - Business Development Strategy - Marketing Automation - Email Marketing - Recurring Payment Options / Implementation - Online Marketing Consulting - Search Engine Optimization - Conversion Rate Optimization (A/B and Multivariate Testing) - Google Analytics Analysis - Sailing :) I also do Internet Marketing seminars around the country. I'll be happy to let you know the locations of my next few conferences and perhaps you can pay me a visit. -Chris Davis ***UPDATE 2010 *** I joined oDesk as a fun way to keep my skills sharp after I sold my company in 2008 and while the current one was being developed. I've since had less and less time available and rarely accept any interviews. However, I still love working with passionate business owners so I do hope you send me a message if you think we would be a good match. As inactive as this account may look, I still read every interview request. - Chris Davis

    C-Level DNA - Angel/VC Hacker - Business Growth Strategist

    United States - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 2

    Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. This is a space I've successfully lived in for over 20 years. I assist in developing Business, Strategic, and Operational plans. I help prepare companies for raising capital, and where practical, provide introductions. I help recruit top management. My strengths lie in business planning, short-long term strategies, and sourcing talent. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans and strategic initiatives. I help clients deliver positive results to their bottom line, take them from "marginal to viable", and often I help position them for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform internally as well as externally to vendors, clients or investors. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, financials, market dynamics, team, and strategy. I look at the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Engage me on an initial consultation (no fee) regarding your business goals and strategy. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to advance your goals. Michael
