    Business Consulting

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 11

    I create plans and models for entrepreneurs and startups. My documents help them pitch to investors, banks, and potential business partners. Many of my clients are founders, organizations and companies seeking to create business and marketing plans, business models, full pitch decks or online presentations. Among my past clients I have financial institutions, food distribution companies, entertainment start-ups, media websites and green energy companies, plus many nonprofit organizations. My best clients are the ones with new and disruptive ideas. In my process I ask many questions, do a lot of research, propose new ideas, explore diverse channel of distribution, provide a lot of graphics, create models using a canvas business model system, run numbers and create financial projections. At the end, I do everything I can to create useful and powerful documents for my clients. "OFF-LINE" I have my own business consulting firm working from New York City - www.glaction.com. I have an MPA from Cornell University (USA) and I speak English and Spanish. ----- MY PHILOSOPHY on writing business plan is simple: every business plan is unique and every client deserves a professional and timely service. I do not over promise, I do what I said I will do. Simple. Some business and marketing plans are designed to get a loan from a bank, others to get potential investors excited about a project. Most of the time is a tool to raise money, but all the time should be an instrument to guide your future. In my work I get inspiration from big angel and venture capitalist firms, such as the giant investor Sequoia Capital; that has invested in companies like Apple, Google, YouTube, PayPal, Instagram, Yahoo!, Atari, Kayak, Zappos, and LinkedIn. I always suggest my potential clients to read what they are asking from people that want to get funds from them: www.sequoiacap.com/ideas They are not asking for a 100-page business plan. They believe that the best founders are clear thinkers. ----- MY PROCESS is also simple. I start with your ideas and your initial data and work until you are completely satisfied. I want to invite you to see my process of writing business plans here: http://goo.gl/ugB0l1 Before you hire me I give you a very clear plan of what I will do for you, step by step, with a feasible timetable. Again, I do not over-promise, I do what I said I will do. By hours, this is a breakdown of my typical development process: 1) Business Consulting (2-6 hours) 2) Market (Research and Plan) (4 to 8 hours) 3) Financials (4 to 10 hours) - 3 to 5 years of Sales, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet forecasts. 4) Writing (8 to 16 hours) - following the format of California VC firm Sequoia Capital and adding charts, maps, graphics, etc., to clarify your business pitch. My tools are 1)Internet for research, 2) Skype for communication, 3) ASANA to organize my work, 4) Excel to plot all financial projections, 5) PowerPoint to design pitch decks, and 6) a few RedBulls to work overnight and on time. Everything will start with a Skype chat and we go from there. ----- TERMS I work around your budget. I know that startups are not cash cows. Because every plan is unique, I like to discuss final payment terms during the interview process. My original bid is a guide for the client, and is based, usually, on a week of work (about 40 hours). Depending on the nature, format and stage of your business project, my work could take about a week and in some cases several weeks. My hourly rate is $80, and usually will take me 20 to 40 hours of work to develop a comprehensive plan. If you hire me as a fixed rate contract, I operate on a 3-payment basis. The first 20% is due at project start, a second payment of 40% at an agreed upon middle milestone, and the final 40% upon completion of the project. ------- SAMPLES Looking for samples of my work? Here is a list of some of my past projects: IT service start-up in Germany, data center in Uganda, online food service platform in Brazil, crowdfunding site in California, niche social network in the UK, nonprofit in Mozambique, real estate fund in Taiwan, TV production company in Los Angeles, agro-business in Nigeria, entertainment company in Holland, publishing service in Spain, beverage company in the UK, entrepreneurial education center in Dubai, pharmaceutical start up in Lebanon, electric company in Saudi Arabia, and several iOS native app start-up in Australia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico and USA. Sample Business plan - http://goo.gl/4AUmUy Sample Pitch Deck - http://goo.gl/YcIMWa If you request a connection via Linkedin you can see past clients’ recommendations here: www.linkedin.com/in/josebello ----- FINAL NOTE: If you do not hire me, let me wish you good luck in your future business. Keep it up and dream big. Jose

    Freelance Copywriter and Content Writer

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 8

    After 10 years of business and technical writing, I decided it was time to expand my horizons! In 2012, after 3 years of study and training, I transitioned into copywriting. I offer the following copywriting and content services: - web copy (including product descriptions, bio pages, landing or lead capture pages, etc.) - white hat SEO - whitepapers - press releases - ebooks - blogging - social media - and more My background includes process and procedural writing in the area of quality assurance documentation, including fraud, abuse, and waste prevention, document control, and continual improvement, as well as other related areas. I've found this skill set translates well into writing quality copy for my clients. Here are a few more things about me (and how I work) to help you determine if I am a good fit for your job: 1. I have a "planner" type personality, so I will likely have questions for you to clarify your job. 2. Once I'm hired, you will not need to micro-manage me. I will communicate updates to you on a regular basis, so I am an ideal fit for clients who need me to take a project and run with it. 3. Once hired, I will send you a creative brief to complete that will give me the details I need to complete your job. I am an ethical copywriter. I will not write copy for the following topics: 1. unproven medical claims or unapproved supplements, such as hoodia 2. pornography or erotica topics I look forward to working with you! Amanda Craig

    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

    Graphic Designer

    Ukraine - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 7

    Hi. I’m Kyre, a graphic designer specializing in brand identity design. I’m here to help you design an identity that represents your brand values, speaks to your target audience, and stands out from your competitors. To achieve these objectives I put love, care, and thought into every project. To have a better idea of what it takes to design an effective, appropriate, and hopefully timeless logo, here’s my design process: 1. Briefing and research. Right from the start it’s very important that I get information about your business, industry, target demographics, and competition to ensure that I’ll meet your business objectives. Then I’ll do my own research in order to grasp a good understanding of your business. 2. Brainstorming and sketching. Now it’s time to generate as many ideas as possible and sketch them out on paper. It’s a very organic process that helps me fill a few pages of my sketchbook with logo concepts. 3. Design and presentation. Then I narrow all the logo concepts to just 1–3 that I think will work. This process is more technical, since I have to make sure that designs are crisp, precise, and beautifully crafted on a computer. Once designs are done, I’ll send you a PDF presentation showing logo concepts in real life situations along with notes explaining my decisions. 4. Delivery and support. Once one design is chosen and revisions are made, I’ll send you logo files in various file formats and variations. Here are logo and supporting files that you will get: 1. Vector files (EPS and PDF for print, SVG for web) that can be scaled to any size while preserving the quality. 2. Raster files (PNG) with transparent background that can be used for on-screen media. 3. Full color, black, and white versions. 4. Different logo lockups and orientations (horizontal, vertical, symbol, etc.) that can be used depending on the size and purpose of the media. 5. Favicons and social media avatars. 6. Logo usage guidelines showing how to use your logo design (colors, orientations, placements, sizes, typefaces, etc.). Please note that I’m a vegan which means that I only work with ethical companies. Please let me know if you want to work with me. I’m looking forward to helping your business grow!
