    PHP Web App Developer: Any Framework, APIs and UI. 15+ years (USA)

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 12

    Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible. On the server-side, Laravel is my current PHP framework of choice, although I am comfortable working with Zend, CodeIgniter, Cake and Yii. For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface. I am seeking opportunities to build custom web applications from the ground up or taking an existing code base and improving upon it.

    Morgan Fraser

    SEO Specialist & Social Media Consultant

    United States - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

    My name is Morgan Fraser. My specialties are search engine optimization consulting, social network marketing, and all types of writing and editing. I have a degrees in print journalism and Spanish and have published two wine-pairing cookbooks for niche regions in Washington State. I first learned the basics of online advertising using keyword targeting when I was a sales associate at Zango, where I was on the team of high-spend advertisers and managed more than $450,000 a month in keyword targeted advertising for my clients. Since then, I have learned more about targeted marketing on search engines and social networks through freelance consulting and building my own publishing business for my books. My specialty is a one-time "SEO startup package," which includes the following: *Generate keywords to use in on the site and in other relevant posts on other sites or in directories. *Write, edit or rewrite some of the text on the website to get a better ranking using relevant search terms. *Register the website with Google and Bing/Yahoo! *Add site to DMOZ and other smaller relevant online directories *Implement Google Analytics for more in-depth statistical data on who is visiting the site and when. *Analyze site and come up with a list of recommendations to get more traffic, increase search engine rank and improve user experience. I have more than 6 years experience in the online marketing and writing field, and would love to work with you to better improve your website's visibility and/or user engagement. Below is a recommendation from one of my clients, who found me through word of mouth: "We were delighted to utilize her SEO (Search Engine Optimization) skills, to help place our website higher into Google and other search engines rankings. She accomplished this by evaluating our prior ranking, analyzing our prior use and effectiveness of search engine registries, keywords and metatags, and Google Analytics. She was quick, effective, and reasonably priced. We saw increased sales results after only 3 days of her work, both in the packing department and in Google Analytics graphs. She also recommended generating missing keywords germane to our product line and rewrite some of the text on the site to get better rankings, using relevant search terms. She performed this work, as well as training our office staff in some startup Facebook strategies." As the owner of Nautical Decor Store, I can wholeheartedly recommend Morgan, for any job she puts her heart to, in the writing and internet fields. Please do not hesitate to contact me in regards to similar work you may be considering for Morgan's skills. Sincerely, Scott Tucker Nautical Decor Store
