    I create plans and models for entrepreneurs and startups. My documents help them pitch to investors, banks, and potential business partners. Many of my clients are founders, organizations and companies seeking to create business and marketing plans, business models, full pitch decks or online presentations. Among my past clients I have financial institutions, food distribution companies, entertainment start-ups, media websites and green energy companies, plus many nonprofit organizations. My best clients are the ones with new and disruptive ideas. In my process I ask many questions, do a lot of research, propose new ideas, explore diverse channel of distribution, provide a lot of graphics, create models using a canvas business model system, run numbers and create financial projections. At the end, I do everything I can to create useful and powerful documents for my clients. "OFF-LINE" I have my own business consulting firm working from New York City, (EST) but available around the clock. I have an MPA from Cornell University (USA) and I speak English and Spanish. ----- MY PHILOSOPHY on writing business plan is simple: every business plan is unique and every client deserves a professional and timely service. I do not over promise, I do what I said I will do. Simple. Some business and marketing plans are designed to get a loan from a bank, others to get potential investors excited about a project. Most of the time is a tool to raise money, but all the time should be an instrument to guide your future. In my work I get inspiration from big angel and venture capitalist firms, such as the giant investor Sequoia Capital; that has invested in companies like Apple, Google, YouTube, PayPal, Instagram, Yahoo!, Atari, Kayak, Zappos, and LinkedIn. I always suggest my potential clients to read what they are asking from people that want to get funds from them: www.sequoiacap.com/ideas They are not asking for a 100-page business plan. They believe that the best founders are clear thinkers. ----- MY PROCESS is also simple. I start with your ideas and your initial data and work until you are completely satisfied. I want to invite you to see my process of writing business plans here: http://goo.gl/ugB0l1 Before you hire me I give you a very clear plan of what I will do for you, step by step, with a feasible timetable. Again, I do not over-promise, I do what I said I will do. By hours, this is a breakdown of my typical development process: 1) Business Consulting (2-6 hours) 2) Market (Research and Plan) (4 to 8 hours) 3) Financials (4 to 10 hours) - 3 to 5 years of Sales, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet forecasts. 4) Writing (8 to 16 hours) - following the format of California VC firm Sequoia Capital and adding charts, maps, graphics, etc., to clarify your business pitch. 5) Online presentation (4 to 8 hours) - on prezi.com. My tools are 1)Internet for research, 2) Skype for communication, 3) ASANA -the project management tool created by one of the founders of Facebook- to organize my work, 4) Excel to plot all financial projections, 5) PowerPoint to design pitch decks, and 6) a few RedBulls to work overnight and on time. Everything will start with a Skype chat and we go from there. ----- TERMS I work around your budget. I know that startups are not cash cows. Because every plan is unique, I like to discuss final payment terms during the interview process. My original bid is a guide for the client, and is based, usually, on a week of work (about 40 hours). Depending on the nature, format and stage of your business project, my work could take about a week and in some cases several weeks. My hourly rate is $65, and usually will take me 20 to 40 hours of work to develop a comprehensive plan. If you hire me as a fixed rate contract, I operate on a 3-payment basis. The first 20% is due at project start, a second payment of 40% at an agreed upon middle milestone, and the final 40% upon completion of the project. ------- SAMPLES Looking for samples of my work? Here is a list of some of my past projects: IT service start-up in Germany, data center in Uganda, online food service platform in Brazil, crowdfunding site in California, niche social network in the UK, nonprofit in Mozambique, real estate fund in Taiwan, TV production company in Los Angeles, agro-business in Nigeria, entertainment company in Holland, publishing service in Spain, beverage company in the UK, entrepreneurial education center in Dubai, pharmaceutical start up in Lebanon, electric company in Saudi Arabia, and several iOS native app start-up in Australia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico and USA. If you request a connection via Linkedin you can see past clients’ recommendations here: www.linkedin.com/in/josebello ----- FINAL NOTE: If you do not hire me, let me wish you good luck in your future business. Keep it up and dream big. Jose  less

    My name is John Reisinger and I specialize in compelling, hype-free website, sales page, email marketing and direct response copy. My heart-based approach positions you as a go-to authority in your niche, while dramatically increasing sales -- without ever having to compromise your values. My track record includes: ... Sales page for real estate investment guru. $120,300 net profit in 4 days. ... Landing Page and Membership Sign Up. 25% sign ups and 33% conversion. ... Direct response sales letter. $957,600 for new product in 10 months. ... Sales page and emails. 6.03% conversion for author’s first paid coaching offering. ... Website rewrite. 50% more calls for pet coaching without changing PPC ads. ... Website, branding, sales emails. 27% more sign ups for free MBA assessment. ... Landing Page and PPC ads. 5.39% of people convert into clients for Doctor. .... Sales rollout emails. 6% response— in new orders for ebook conversion service. ... PPC ad campaign. 164% increase in CTR versus old ads for ADA signage company. I am a rare copywriter in that I have consistently earned 6-figures in commission only sales prior to unearthing my love for copywriting. While my sales experience and 6 years of studying and teaching Conscious Communication is the foundation for me compassionately connecting with people with originality, consistency and clear calls to action, I don't rely on this alone. I am also a graduate of AWAIs Copywriting and Email Marketing programs, and a top PPC writer for BoostCTR.com. This alchemy of experience allows the words on your website, sales pages and email marketing campaigns to be as effective as you personally having a heart to heart talk with every reader about what is really troubling them. Thus leaving them feeling deeply understood, and naturally ready to solve their problems with the help of your product or service. Typically, 2 or more of these things are important to my clients: 1) They are passionate, innovative Entrepreneurs with established websites and email lists (often with several thousand subscribers). Now they want help growing and profiting from that list through more high-trust emails and offers. 2) They often have tried, through costly trial and error, to write their own copy. Now they’re looking for a go-to copywriter they can rely on to revive and launch new offerings. 3) They want and need results, without using methods that bully people to buy or border on sleazy behavior. If you're serious about building high-trust relationships with your new and potential customers that DRAMATICALLY increases sales and conversions then let's talk about your unique needs. I provide a holistic marketing and sales approach in all aspects of internet and direct response marketing related to: - Finding and communicating your uniqueness (branding) - Long and short sales copy for internet / print - Newsletter/ Autoresponder email series - Sales follow up / Lead generation strategies - Information product creation / product funnels - Video sales letters/ scripts - PPC ads for Google and Facebook - Selling of self improvement / personal development products - Information product creation (books, courses, seminars, workshops) - Marketing strategy & implementation - Website and PPC Conversion Performance Improvement - Online and Direct Response sales letter layout design ** I'm also a whiz with designing, writing and executing email marketing campaigns using software like Awebber, OfficeAutoPilot and Infusionsoft.  less
