if I should summarize into one sentence my professional past and present it would be: "I help to solve startling problems come from absurd situations" I didn't believe in coincidence but it happened by coincidence: I like crisis situations, I mean I like resolving them. I believe the core of most of the problems is un-clarified communication, improper coding and decoding, "Lost in Translation" effects. So, I am kind of problem solver who is really a translator. If I should analyse my last 20 professional years from an ordinary point of view 4 peaks could be clearly marked: - marketing; - media (on- and off-line, from the making to the distribution); - security, focusing on video surveillance (CCTV); - launching new products and brands.

Who's your customer? How should you relate to them? Put your ad, sales and press copy in the hands of someone who considers this when writing your content. It takes strategy to convert, sell and nurture customers, not just pretty words. My background and core competency is in persuasive writing. This type of writing works well in all areas of marketing and sales--with mediums ranging from web, radio, and print. I have 8 years experience with advertising and sales copy, including time spent on audio/visual and print campaigns for Buena Vista Motion Pictures, Taco Bell and Time Warner Cable. My copywriting work--including articles, press releases, blogs and sales letter copy--has been published in media, fashion and business trades, including the Los Angeles Business Journal and mediabistro.com. To top it off, I am a published author and current blog contributor on branding and consumer behavior. I love to help companies improve their bottom line by simply attending to their marketing in new and innovative ways. Find the balance between suffocating and nurturing your prospective customers. You'll find that you may have a great customer list, but you haven't spoken to them in just the right way...until now. Associated services: bio writing (how's your bio--does it convey the expertise you bring to the table? hint: it should speak for itself), internet marketing, content-creation coaching, copy and strategy consulting (know the 'why' behind the 'what'), copy-editing and rewriting, article and blog copy, autoresponder series, art direction suggestions to accompany copy (per my background in graphic design)

About me…I am a true veteran of the digital space with 18 years of digital agency experience...in project management, account management and digital / social strategy. Peruse my resume and you will see… In my role at Ogilvy I oversaw social media and content strategy for the SC Johnson business, a team comprised of 10 social strategists, content creators and community managers and across 9 brands in NA and Internationally; At Weber Shandwick I oversaw the creation of the first content marketing, social media command center, garnering nearly a dozen awards and providing the case study that would grow the content marketing practice across the entire agency; At Razorfish I led a massive digital future visioning strategy and roadmap project for State Farm, which in addition to helping to secure a record-breaking 25MM retainer for the agency, aimed to predict digital behaviors 3 years into the future to help State Farm in their goal to leapfrog the competition from a mobile/social/digital perspective; At Band Digital I successfully relocated and rebuilt the flagship Harley-Davidson business, launching the first social/digital programs for Dark Custom, Harley Women and Harlistas; and at Leo Burnett I oversaw the digital production group at Arc Worldwide, personally managing the multi-million redesign of the GoArmy.com website, increasing leads by 41% in a year. At the core I believe I can do anything. Not because I am any smarter than the next guy (gal), because I know I am not. I build teams and connect people to tools and tools to people. I will walk through fire to get the job done. I’m crafty and relentless in my process. I navigate and figure things out. I create relationships based on trust and authenticity. Boredom is my enemy. I’m driven to win and that passion comes across in everything I do – from developing digital strategies – to managing my teams – to growing business with fresh, new ideas – and everything in between, big and small.
HOURLY PROJECTS ONLY, Please! And no time wasters too, please! I work ONLY with clients that have both a professional attitude as well as a prompt payment ability. Hi: Thank you for taking a few moments to glance over my oDesk profile. I possess an excellent command of English (it happens to be my native language!), verifiable accredited U.S. qualifications, authentic Fortune 10/100 work experience, as well as a powerful portfolio of specializations, skills, experience, and capabilities. Although I've passed over 90 oDesk tests and more than 27 Brainbench tests, I regularly add new skills to my portfolio. AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management (SCPM - Stanford) Business Consulting - Leadership, Management, and Technnological Management of technology Organizational Behavior Organization Design General Management Business Analysis Systems Analysis Marketing: Penetration of new market segments Design of Tests and Examinations - including Psychometric Evaluation Quality Management (CMQ/OE: ASQ Certified Manager of Quality / Organizational Excellence) Quality Engineering (CQE: ASQ Certified Quality Engineer) Software Quality Assurance (CSQE: ASQ Certified software Quality Engineer) CMMI ISO 9001, SPICE, TickIT and other Quality Standards SDLC / Agile Software Development Methodologies Software Technologies and Development Environments Multidisciplinary Training - Individual and Groups GRE and GMAT Examinations Coaching I have a working knowledge of a broad range of software across a wide range of industry segments (general management, international quality systems standards formulation, market penetration, manufacturing, financial services, customer service, training, software development, systems implementation, systems analysis, systems certification and accreditation), together with primary and secondary research capabilities. As far back as 1994, I designed, developed and successfully implemented across several sites, a Refinanced Loan Management System (RLMS) while serving as the joint Management Information Systems Expert and Computer systems Specialist for the SFLCP project funded by the International Fund for Agriculture of the United Nations (UN / IFAD) and the Canadian International Development Agency. During the relatively short period of July 1996 to September 1997, I designed, developed, and successfully implemented what was probably the world's first ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System that allowed new technology platforms to be added without the need for immediate re-certification. What all this means to you is that you finally have the ability to economically hire someone who is quite comfortable delving into even the smallest details while simultaneously monitoring the "big picture," ensuring you get the most from whatever your assignment requires. Of course, I prefer to work with clients who look forward to taking their companies to the next level in terms of performance, profitability, as well as corporate responsibility. Stay tuned for new skills, technologies and achievements that I will be adding to my portfolio in the very near future. Sincerely, Prasanna L.L.
