    Top 10 Percent on oDesk for Online Marketing

    United States - Last active: 22 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.

    SEO/SEM expert

    Ukraine - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 8

    I provide SEO services for websites connected with the different business spheres. Within the last 5 years of my productive work I have more than 20 successfully completed projects on optimization of English and Russian websites. When I'm working on the projects, main attention is given to internal optimization of the website: selection of the keywords, semantic kernel development, metatags and text optimization according to the keywords selected, crosslinking of the website's internal pages. External optimization I am responsible for is based on getting links from high trust domains and receiving the referral traffic from social networks (G+, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). If my clients want to get more target users, I create, set up and manage campaigns of paid advertisements ( these are mainly Google Adwords campaigns). The whole set of such activities gives website owners the possibility to get target traffic on the website even after the first month of my work. Be sure, I am responsible for your business being more profitable and my work will help you to have a great income.
