    Expert Web Developer, 15+yrs Marketing+Sales, 5+yrs REALTOR

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 20

    Are you looking for someone who has extensive experience with marketing, sales, lead generation, affiliate marketing, email marketing, or residential real estate? Do you need someone with awesome communication skills, a solid understanding of web design, and swell English? (Yep..."swell".) Are you a fellow entrepreneur/internet marketer who needs to customize your unique project in a way that matches your style and branding? If you answered "Yes" to any (or all) of the above, send me an interview request today. I always aim to exceed my clients' expectations, and a review of my client feedback will confirm this. I'm looking for interesting projects in the following areas (preferably in the real estate industry, but open to interesting alternatives): - light web design work/customization/consulting for real estate agents & brokers - lead generation / internet marketing consulting for real estate agents & brokers - automation consulting (I can help you get rid of time-consuming / redundant / redundant tasks so you can focus on more important things) Preferred Contracts: - $300 minimum (if flat rate) - Less than 5 hours per week (if hourly) Send an interview request today and let's see how I can make your project a smashing success! I've been designing websites, graphics, spreadsheets and software for over 17 years, over 95% from scratch. My specialty is the area having to do with "Direct Response" methods of lead generation, having studied almost every Dan Kennedy book and dozens of self-study courses over the years. I eat, breathe, sleep and dream sales and marketing. You think like an entrepreneur, and so do I...because that's almost all I've known for over a decade. I've been self-employed in some form my entire adult life. Borderline-obsessive work ethic is just another day at the office. I've gone through Tim Ferriss' "4-Hour Work Week" almost a dozen times. GAME. CHANGER. If you've read it, you know what I mean. If you haven't: read it. Real Estate Experience: - licensed residential real estate agent since 2005 - full-time real estate agent 2005-2010 - worked with investors, relocation companies - former real estate Board member + teacher Web Design And Lead Generation: I have spent the past 9 years working extensively with: - Custom landing pages/"Squeeze Pages" (many for the Real Estate niche) - AWeber + GetResponse automated email delivery services - Loan Pre-Qualification forms (designed for real estate agents + residential lenders) - Tons of form-filling processes and data capture on the web - Wordpress integration, theme customization, and theme-building - Internet Video integration - PDF/eBook generation - Fixing bugs so sites display correctly (a necessary evil) Sales & Marketing: - I've been selling enthusiastically since the age of 5 (it started with selling pencils door-to-door. I made $2.50 in 15 minutes. My mom yelled at me and made me return the money. It was on this day that my disdain for authority was born...) - I own (and actually completed) more sales, marketing, real estate investing, and real estate agent training courses than I can count (over 100 at least) - I hired a professional sales and marketing coach for approximately two years while practicing real estate, and amassed a well-rounded business education along the way - Barely old enough to vote, I spent 3 years selling telecommunications service and building sales teams I've also spent more time than I can count on: - Writing custom email campaigns - Writing eBooks and Free Reports for website give-aways - Designing custom graphics, flyers, and advertisements - Designing website elements (logos, buttons, banner graphics, backgrounds, etc) - Copy writing / sales letters (long- and short-form) Long story short: I have a strong background in the many aspects of internet-based sales and marketing, I love sales and marketing, and I'm a stickler for details. Send me an interview request today and let's see how I can be an asset to your project! I'm very familiar with the following languages and tools (if your project requires them): - HTML / PHP / CSS - Javascript / jQuery / jQuery Mobile / AJAX - Adobe Photoshop / PSD-to-HTML - MySQL databases (and website integration) - Microsoft Excel (I've designed hundreds of custom spreadsheets and 3 complete software solutions for myself and clients) If you're looking for a developer or content writer with a strong background in the finer points of sales and marketing, one with an obsession over the details, one with a thorough understanding of what it takes to generate you more business and get you more email subscribers, send me an interview request today and let's see if we're a match.

    United States - Last active: 28 days ago - Tests: 1

    Is your business exactly where you want it to be? You don’t have any any problems to solve or improvements to make? Is your business perfect? Probably not. Even those of us who have taken on the challenge of helping others improve, and sometimes transform, their businesses have problems and work to improve on a daily basis. (Shhhh!, don’t tell anyone, but we make a lot of mistakes too. Good mistakes that still move us forward and even some where we ask ourselves what we were thinking. But the progress is always forward and tomorrow always turns out to be better than yesterday.) So if you want to improve on any or all of the following then we can help you without a shadow of a doubt: • Revenue generation • New sources of revenue • Profit • Costs • Quality • Customer service / satisfaction • Time • Frustration • Employee engagement • Delays • Problem Solving • Control • Processes and systems • Value creation and delivery It is not magic. Everything we do is something you could do all on your own. You could teach yourself and do it. The problem is that you are running a business and probably don’t have the time to learn and even less time to make costly mistakes and missteps. We all need help with things for which we either do not have the time, resources, or talent. If we did we would be perfect. No one is. If you want to generate more revenue (and profits) through better marketing then we can help. If you want improved profits, problems solved permanently, fewer surprises, and happier customers (or patients, clients, patrons, etc.) then we can help. If you want to free up more of your time to do what you do best and enjoy while letting others do the same and still enjoy the increased revenue and profits and reduced problems, then we can help.
