Team Leader for Creative Marketing

Philippines - Tests: 3

For the past 3 and a half years, I have been working as part of the marketing team. Currently, I am the Team Leader for Creative Marketing of a local online shopping site here in the Philippines. My main task would be to suggest, craft, and implement promotions/contests to gain more traffic and fans on our social media page. I also supervise a team of 7 - making sure that we are on track with our marketing targets. I have done a few online jobs for data entry and research before on other websites. I would love to do it again. For travel planning, all I have is personal travel planning and planning of trips for my friends - which I think I can improve in the future. I have been writing English articles since high school and I worked as a content writer for several companies here in the Philippines. I also have a certification from IELTS with a grade of 7.

Google PANDA & PENGUIN Solution: Guaranteed Top # 1 Ranking

India - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

I have over 7 years of SEO, SEM, SMM, Link Building, Article Writing experience. I never use any black hat seo techniques, i always use white hat seo techniques. I never spam the website and never make false promises. I always work honestly. My SEO services include: SEO STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT: Not sure what you need, but have an SEO budget? I’ll work with you to define a custom needs assessment and strategy for long-term search marketing success. IMPLEMENTATION GUIDELINES: Do you already have a clear direction in mind for search engine optimization, but you need help knowing how best to implement your ideas without losing rankings? I can help guide your development team through tough technical situations. SOFTWARE RECOMMENDATIONS: The search marketing industry is filled with hundreds, if not thousands, of software solutions to help track, analyze and improve your keyword rankings. I can help you find the best tools for your strategy, internal resources, environment and budget. SEO AUDITS: With each audit we compile an in-depth analysis of your site’s on-page optimization and locate immediate areas for improvement. I understand that no two sites or industries are alike, so this audit can be as specific or general as needed. Either way, when complete, it will absolutely overwhelm your team with actionable items. KEYWORD RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS: Perhaps the most boring and dreaded task in search marketing, keyword research can quickly overwhelm fledgling SEOs. Let us do the dirty work so your in-house team can focus on the big picture. This analysis goes beyond Wordtracker data, looking at important search and user behavior, in addition to your high converting and competitive keywords. COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS: Are you neck and neck with the competition and need to know exactly what they’re doing and how? I’ll break down their on- and off-site tactics, potential service providers, budget estimates and more. LINK BUILDING AUDIT: Have you outsourced your link building to questionable consultants or companies and don’t know if something is hurting or helping? Are you new to the space and just need links period? I can review your old links and build a custom strategy for quality link acquisition. LINK BUILDING: Need natural, high quality links? I don’t put our link building efforts on auto-pilot. Instead, we carefully craft pitches, content and submissions with your brand and long-term success in mind. If you don’t have sufficient linkable content or on-page optimization, I will work with you to bring the quality of the site up to our standards for link building. REDESIGN GUIDANCE: Does your site rank competitively and now you’re terrified to redesign because of the possibility of losing your placement? Let us create a strategy document for the redesign and work with your development team to ensure little impact when you do take that leap. RETAINERS FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE: Do you have a solid grasp of SEO and a knowledgeable development team, but need someone to consult for assurance as you implement your changes? I can be contracted on a per project or monthly retainer for SEO consulting services. NEW HIRE REVIEWS: Have you made the decision to hire an SEO, link builder or developer with knowledge of the industry, but don’t know if they really know their stuff? Let me do the snooping to make sure you’re getting the best fit for your company. REPORTING: Once optimization is complete, I run reports again every 30 days to check on the progress of your Website – you will be updated on these monthly ranking report results via e-mail.
