    eCommerce Marketing Manager & Analyst

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

    I'm an experienced eComm marketing strategist, with a focus on data analysis. If you sell products or services online, you (hopefully!) already have the data necessary to make smart, strategic marketing decisions. My focus is on synthesizing what your customers and potential customers are already telling you through their user behavior, and turning that into actionable tactics. I've worked with both small ($1M/yr revenue) and large ($4B+/yr) companies. My experience is broad, across various marketing channels like PPC, email, social, mobile, SEO, affiliate, content, retargeting, PLA. I enjoy it all, but my passion is the combination of data and creativity. Ask yourself this: what effect does my visitors' screen resolution have on my conversion rate? Or: What was the result of the most recent A/B landing page test for my Widget Adwords campaign? Or even: Traffic from social media channels has spiked over the past two months thanks to our content efforts. What sort of revenue or ROI are we seeing across each channel? I'm well-equipped and experienced to handle all of these and more! I think most businesses don't need marketers...they need someone who can turn the available data into a legitimate test and who understand the driving mechanisms of purchase mentality. Send me an invite today, and let's talk!

    They say if you want something done fast, well and cheap, the best you’ll ever get is two out of three. However, you can get your marketing content creation, copywriting and ghostwriting needs met fast, well and affordably – if you hire me. As a copywriter/editor, Fortune-500-executive speechwriter and marketing communications manager with 18+ years of experience, I’m at my best when delivering compelling, crystal-clear content that keeps audiences hooked. As a creative writer with produced stage and television credits, I’m called to breathe new life into subject matter previously considered dry, boring or terminally unexciting. I’ve spent most of my career supporting the efforts of large corporations (Sony, Disney, News Corporation, BNY/Mellon and Wells Fargo). Now I’m focused on writing and publishing e-books and other content focused on making people’s lives better, as well as ghostwriting for fellow author-publisher-entrepreneurs and supporting small-to-medium-sized businesses in effectively communicating to their audiences. (I’m also available for C-Level speechwriting, corporate communications strategy and marcom planning at different rates.) In short, please call on me to deliver the quality content or copy you need at any stage of your project, from initial concept to content creation to marketing and PR materials. Thank you for considering me and best of luck to you in your endeavors.
