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.

With over 10 years of SEO and web development experience I can do a lot for your business. From creating a website until reaching top positions in the major search engines. I can manage multiple small or large projects at once and I can advise on website migrations.I use only quality white hat SEO methods for guaranteed results and I am up to date with all the changes in this industry. On my last workplace I was the manager of the SEO department at an international media company covering Romania, Hungary, Austria and Ukraine that had a total of over 100 web portals and over 500 employees. I have created and designed until now over 200 websites mostly by using third party CMS web software like Wordpress/Joomla and I helped out over 100 different websites in different niches and from different countries to improve their rankings.

I'm not your guy if you want a custom plugin or a function to be created. My work as a consultant contains detailed information on how to improve elements of your website. The actual implementation will be done by your programmers or on some cases by me. My offpage work consists in implementing and suggesting the best ways to achieve quality links from link analysis to implementation based on the client's budget. I do not make AdWords campagins or ads optimization (for that I have a colleague).

Australia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2

I have over 8 years experience in managing over 500 Google Adwords campaigns for small and large companies in Australia. I'm extremely passionate about PPC and love keyword research, building accounts from scratch and optimising existing accounts. I have years of experience teaching businesses how to run Adwords campaigns themselves so they do not have to rely on me forever. I do this by doing a comprehensive audit of your Adwords account while my screen is shared with yours, then go through with you step by step on how to implement the changes so everything is 100% transparent. I have worked for large companies like Groupon as a PPC manager, and also Google Australia on the mobile advertising team(Admob) as an account manager. My first job was with a Sydney based digital marketing company over 8 years ago where I was responsible for managing over 500 Google Adwords accounts for small to medium businesses over a 4yr period. I don't get any work outsourced, everything is done by me, by hand, so an hour paid by you is an hour worked by me. Why choose me? Freelancing is my full time job. I don't have another job where I need to juggle hours, this is it. Money back guarantee! I only believe in getting results for my clients and I want to build long lasting relationships. More than 8 yrs experience in PPC and account management. Exceptional communication skills. Reliability. Great time management skills. Resilient. Excellent researcher. Extremely passionate about helping people grow their businesses.
