    Multimedia Producer/Social Media Consultant/Virtual Assistant

    Belgium - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

    After working for the past five years in multimedia, I have picked up a handful of various skills. Although predominately my position was in online video producing, the openness of the role allowed me to explore and learn many different skills. Social Media Jack of All Trades Twitter? Got it. Facebook? Let's make some ads. From Tumblr to Instagram, I have been working with online marketing specifically for social media for years- I know some great tricks of the trade, and how to communicate effectively using different tones for different audiences. Multimedia Production I specialised in multimedia for web use. I started with managing an international cosmetic company's multimedia content, then moved up to manage the social media as well. Video production is my area of expertise, i find it challenging, creative, and an excellent way to get a clear message out both to external markets as well as for internal company communication. Writing I am able to write copy, blogs and email blasts on a variety of subject (please ask me about travel!) as well as social media updating. Email Marketing I have skills in using mailchimp to blast out company news-both internally and externally, to a variety of different groups. Using a blend of different kinds of content, visuals and tones, I am an effective communicator when it comes to email marketing. Audio Editing I have worked exclusively with Audacity. I am proficient at cleaning up audio files, editing out unimportant information, and evening out multiple voice volumes. I became very good at trapping and deleting "um"s! Transcriptions I have spent a lot of time transcribing our videos, predominately for translations. This require a lot of clarity and a good dose of perfectionism. Online Research I am internet savvy and can work on specified internet research project. You will find me to be well organised and a good communicator, I look forward to working with you!

    Philippines - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 5

    For over 3 years of being an oDesk freelancer, I have gained multiple experience on data entry, writing jobs, administrative support and data researching. I started as an inexperienced individual but that doesn't stopped me from acquiring skills that would help me survive in this industry. I am not a professional on any field that I mentioned but I prefer working as a data research analyst. I am a natural adaptive person and my accuracy and attention to detail is pretty impressive that's why I can say that I excell more on research analysis. But also I am open on learning new skills from different field or data researching to improve more for future references. And I am seeking opportunities to help me reach that goal. Thank You.
