    Project Manager/Expert Virtual Assistant

    Philippines - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 14

    Over the last 6 years, I've written hundreds of web content and print articles for various clients. From there, I started to develop my own set of affiliate marketing websites using the Wordpress platform. I quickly moved on to accepting jobs creating and managing Wordpress sites, including domain and hosting registration as well as other technical concerns. And not only that, I'm also an all around virtual assistant for most of my clients working as a project manager, researcher, graphics person, customer support representative, content writer, etc. I have also managed several people in the past to deliver end results for the businesses we are a part of. My core competency lies in the fact that I am a fast learner, a versatile virtual assistant, and a competent project manager. Timeliness is of big importance to me. I have experience in the following areas: content writing, Wordpress sites, email marketing (Aweber and Constant Contact), project management (Basecamp), affiliate marketing (Clickbank, Commission Junction, etc.), online retail (Amazon FBA), Google Analytics, etc. My aim is to help you grow your business by being someone you can depend on to do tasks while you focus on the more important part of your business.
