Business Development/Communications Manager
The least common denominator of all the jobs I have been doing until now, and I truly love doing, certainly is (business) communication. By "communication" I mean online and offline, including meetings, presentations, events, emails and phone calls. Above all, I like to connect with people, make friends, have fun. The second best thing I have been doing in my life and career is writing. I wrote anything from website and landing page copies, copies for various other products, descriptions of products, user manuals, newsletters, blogs, presentations, collaboration agreements, reports, proposals, business strategies, projects and guides. I am passionate about content marketing and the magic of written word! Creative and promotional writing, content marketing, copywriting and PR. Moreover, I've had some freelance experience as a translator of all sorts of documents from English to Serbian and vice versa (business, legal, educational, technical, etc).
In my professional career I worked for three years as a Business Development & Sales Area Manager at a large international company that rents serviced apartments around the world. My job was to initiate and further develop strong business relationships with partners around the world, as well as to help the sales team reach their targets via my industry connections.
Afterwards, I worked briefly as an Account Manager at an advertising agency, where I was responsible for managing key customers and in-house creative team, organizing events, promotions and other marketing activities.
Currently, my job is Communications Manager in a software startup. I work on the acquisition of leads and clients for our SaaS solution. I am also the main creator and editor of our website and blog content, in charge of the overall online presence of the company (except for social networks).
I joined oDesk to find a full-time freelance employment since I prefer the freedom it offers. I like to be able to organize my work and time according to my preference.
I am a hard working and highly responsible person with strong dedication and motivation towards achieving goals. Moreover, I am very friendly, open-minded, creative, positive thinking and trustworthy.
