    Aaron Gardner

    Expert Web Developer, 15+yrs Marketing+Sales, 5+yrs REALTOR

    United States - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 20

    Are you looking for someone who has extensive experience with marketing, sales, lead generation, affiliate marketing, email marketing, or residential real estate? Do you need someone with awesome communication skills, a solid understanding of web design, and swell English? (Yep..."swell".) Are you a fellow entrepreneur/internet marketer who needs to customize your unique project in a way that matches your style and branding? If you answered "Yes" to any (or all) of the above, send me an interview request today. I always aim to exceed my clients' expectations, and a review of my client feedback will confirm this. I'm looking for interesting projects in the following areas (preferably in the real estate industry, but open to interesting alternatives): - light web design work/customization/consulting for real estate agents & brokers - lead generation / internet marketing consulting for real estate agents & brokers - automation consulting (I can help you get rid of time-consuming / redundant / redundant tasks so you can focus on more important things) Preferred Contracts: - $300 minimum (if flat rate) - Less than 5 hours per week (if hourly) Send an interview request today and let's see how I can make your project a smashing success! I've been designing websites, graphics, spreadsheets and software for over 17 years, over 95% from scratch. My specialty is the area having to do with "Direct Response" methods of lead generation, having studied almost every Dan Kennedy book and dozens of self-study courses over the years. I eat, breathe, sleep and dream sales and marketing. You think like an entrepreneur, and so do I...because that's almost all I've known for over a decade. I've been self-employed in some form my entire adult life. Borderline-obsessive work ethic is just another day at the office. I've gone through Tim Ferriss' "4-Hour Work Week" almost a dozen times. GAME. CHANGER. If you've read it, you know what I mean. If you haven't: read it. Real Estate Experience: - licensed residential real estate agent since 2005 - full-time real estate agent 2005-2010 - worked with investors, relocation companies - former real estate Board member + teacher Web Design And Lead Generation: I have spent the past 9 years working extensively with: - Custom landing pages/"Squeeze Pages" (many for the Real Estate niche) - AWeber + GetResponse automated email delivery services - Loan Pre-Qualification forms (designed for real estate agents + residential lenders) - Tons of form-filling processes and data capture on the web - Wordpress integration, theme customization, and theme-building - Internet Video integration - PDF/eBook generation - Fixing bugs so sites display correctly (a necessary evil) Sales & Marketing: - I've been selling enthusiastically since the age of 5 (it started with selling pencils door-to-door. I made $2.50 in 15 minutes. My mom yelled at me and made me return the money. It was on this day that my disdain for authority was born...) - I own (and actually completed) more sales, marketing, real estate investing, and real estate agent training courses than I can count (over 100 at least) - I hired a professional sales and marketing coach for approximately two years while practicing real estate, and amassed a well-rounded business education along the way - Barely old enough to vote, I spent 3 years selling telecommunications service and building sales teams I've also spent more time than I can count on: - Writing custom email campaigns - Writing eBooks and Free Reports for website give-aways - Designing custom graphics, flyers, and advertisements - Designing website elements (logos, buttons, banner graphics, backgrounds, etc) - Copy writing / sales letters (long- and short-form) Long story short: I have a strong background in the many aspects of internet-based sales and marketing, I love sales and marketing, and I'm a stickler for details. Send me an interview request today and let's see how I can be an asset to your project! I'm very familiar with the following languages and tools (if your project requires them): - HTML / PHP / CSS - Javascript / jQuery / jQuery Mobile / AJAX - Adobe Photoshop / PSD-to-HTML - MySQL databases (and website integration) - Microsoft Excel (I've designed hundreds of custom spreadsheets and 3 complete software solutions for myself and clients) If you're looking for a developer or content writer with a strong background in the finer points of sales and marketing, one with an obsession over the details, one with a thorough understanding of what it takes to generate you more business and get you more email subscribers, send me an interview request today and let's see if we're a match.

    Rey T.

    Business Coach

    United States - Portfolio: 10

    My name is Rey Tamayo and I am a borne entrepreneur and business coach. I have been in business most of my life and have had three successful exits from businesses and startups. I started my first premium shoe shine business at age 5 and have dabbled in business most of my life. For startups, I have been trained at a Miami Accelerator and have had an unsuccessful startup from which I have learned most mistakes that startup founders make, starting with finding the right co-founders. I can advice and actually work most areas of a startup business from CEO on down and specialize in product development and product monetization. Creating a solid product is the key to funding, especially if the founders are unknown or do not have the right pedigree that investors look for. I have strong skills in online guerrilla marketing, PR, and social media marketing. I can also manage the development project. With these core skills, I can assist any founder in almost all needs a startup team has

    Cathleen Lewis

    Senior Marketing and PR Strategy Executive - US Based

    United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 17

    Cathleen Lewis has over 20 years global marketing experience. She established her consulting company in 2009, following several high-profile positions with top agencies and Fortune 500 companies including Ogilvy & Mather, DDB Needham, and Hilton Hotels among others. I have been recommended by my clients as one of the top freelancers on Odesk and I even have been contacted to interview as a contractor representative by Odesk on the side. NOTE REGARDING JOB SUCCESS STAT: I have more than 20 jobs open with past clients. Leaving these jobs open allows them to hire me periodically at the original rate that they hired me at. Some dating back to 2009. This erroneously skews this statistic down since Odesk sees these jobs as “not complete” for the purpose of their statistic. I choose to leave those jobs open as a nod to their loyalty, so, that statistic reflects those jobs as "not completed" but in actuality they are just ongoing and open for the reasons I stated above. I have a lot of high profile experience, however, I also enjoy smaller clients too and always exceed my clients’ expectations. I have an approachable style and believe in candor in communicating with clients. I have successfully led teams as small as three and as large as twenty-five and enjoy a collaborative, productive work environment. I am also well versed in leading metrics, analytics and remarketing platforms Google Analytics, Improvely and Adrolll among others. Here are some additional areas I have a lot of experience in: Online Strategy and Implementation Oversight Graphic Design (Social Media Promotions, Brochures, Direct Mail) Overall Website Development and Design Public Relations Social Media Strategy + Facebook, LinkedIn Advertising PPC including Adwords (I am a Google Agency) Project and Team Management Brand Integration Event Planning/Management Celebrity Endorsement – A –list Entertainment Global Conference Planning and Oversight - 350+ attendees Crowdfunding Strategy and Implementation SEO – Oversight Affiliate Marketing Marketing and Communications Management Loyalty Program Administration I have proven my ability to lead strategy and development of any campaign, brand or initiative involving many stakeholders and am adept at gaining consensus across multiple constituents when necessary. In other words, I play well with others. Also, please keep in mind, I do not do any spec work, commission only or performance only based projects, so please don't ask. I am extremely creative and have extensive experience on big as well as small budgets... There just needs to be a budget. Also, I will be raising my rates at year end, but will honor my current rate with clients who contract with me before the end of December, 2014. I look forward to working with you.
