    Hire me. Just do it. You'll thank me later. Need that marketing nudge to get you over the top? How about a top notch business plan to get the wheels rolling on your startup? Or, just some general consulting help? I'm your man. I will treat your business as my own and refuse to submit anything but A+ work. I'm a small business owner and am looking for about 20-25 hours a week of part time work just to supplement my income. I hold two degrees...a Bachelor's in Marketing from the University of South Florida (Go Bulls!) and a Master's in Entrepreneurship from the University of Florida. I've designed and implemented marketing plans and strategies (and written business plans) for both of my startups and for many freelance jobs. Most of my freelance experience, however, has been with local businesses and not online; I'm just now getting serious about oDesk. As you've probably gathered already, I have all the confidence in the world in my abilities. Please let me share them with you and let's both make some cash!!! -Rich  less

    I have been recommended by my clients as one of the top freelancers on Odesk and I even have been contacted to interview as a contractor representative by Odesk on the side. I enjoy strategic marketing, creating and implementing marketing and PR plans as well as utilizing social media and other strategies and tactics that are new to online marketing. I also have also designed and implemented Facebook promotions, Kickstarter campaigns and I have directed online and offline campaigns of all sizes and scope including utilization of Google Shopping and Adwords. I don't do a lot of SEO unless it is specific to YouTube as this is typically a task companies can outsource more cost effectively. I have also written high impact marketing plans, press releases, media alerts and worked with celebrities to scope out celebrity endorsements and their utilization on global launches.. Lastly, I have also done a lot of work recently in overall website content strategy and marketing and website communications and copywriting. This is often the place to start before we build a campaign together. I would say I specialize in High Tech, Fashion, Entertainment, but have worked on retail, SAAS, new product launches and many other categories too. Also, please keep in mind, I do not do any spec work, commission only or performance only based projects, so please don't ask. I am extremely creative and have extensive experience on big as well as small budgets... There just needs to be a budget. Also, I will be raising my rates at year end, but will honor my current rate with clients who contract with me before the end of December, 2013. I look forward to working with you.  less

    Green Sheep is a kick-ass graphic design, marketing, and startup consulting group. Our two-person team lives for designing logos, branding materials, presentations, websites, and all sorts of graphics for a diversity of clients. What makes us unique is the insight we've gained from being entrepreneurs ourselves. I think we approach branding and the visual side of business with a different perspective than most designers. We are very detail and deadline-oriented, and we make sure to our clients can rely on us. Also, you'll also have both of us at your disposal, and two brains are better than one, right? We have a particular affinity for startup clients. We know what it takes to start a business (as I said, the fire of entrepreneurship burns bright in our hearts) and we can definitely help you figure things out. You can check out our resumes as well as some of the other work we've done here: http://greensheep.prosite.com  less

    In December of 2009, I started my own User Experience Consulting firm working with educational, insurance, small business eCommerce, and start-up industries. I am an User Experience Designer in which I combine research and design skills together to understand the user needs and produce concepts/solutions/designs that people want to use. This requires a focus on human behaviours, psychology and understanding why people do what they do. It’s all the soft squishy, creative stuff on the right-side of the brain. Most UXers can tell you what it should do and why it should do it, but can’t actually build something that works.(from Ben Melbourne blog) It really does not matter how extensive my portfolio is or what technologies i use, if we do not target the root motivations behind your project, and place them in an open format in which we can both collaborate and establish a shared understanding, then your project may succeed in the beginning BUT fail in the end. Some questions to think about before we start our conversation. What are my initial assumption about how i think this company can help me? Which of these are most and least important for them to clarify? Do i have a structured plan? OR Non-specifics around an idea? http://www.linkedin.com/in/jamesnutter  less

    To assist small business owners realize their full potential by offering consultation, analytical, management and technical services which will increase margins and bolster the company brand. In a nut-shell, I help make things happen and dreams come true. Do you want the freedom to spend more time with family and friends? Travel the world? Live spontaneously? Imagine walking the great Wall of China, Swimming in Bora Bora, Climbing a Mayan Temple, or Leaning Tower of Pisa. Perhaps go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef or simply watch the sun set from your favorite resort. I have done all of this and much more, and I can help YOU realize these types of dreams too! It begins with a stable and efficient business. My experiences which span 24 years in business and 32 years with computers are concentrated on development, sales, marketing and analysis. These skills have been exercised across several industries including: Retail, eCommerce, Hospitality, Fitness and Travel. I will work closely with you to understand your exact needs, goals and ambitions. Together, we will discuss the situation and brainstorm potential scenarios until we narrow the field to a working solution. If you require ongoing support, I will be there for you when the time comes to review progress and suggest/implement tweaks as your path or details change. Helping people achieve life and business goals is a passion. I have personally earned a lifestyle which has taken me around the world and experience things most will only see in a magazine or television. It is my purpose and goal to help others create a situation for themselves, where they too have this opportunity to live out loud. During the interview process, I will listen carefully to your concerns and weigh all options and action plans before moving forward. I am not looking for a 'job' as much as long term partners. If you have a great idea, a solid team and sufficient finances to back it up, but are lacking a piece of the puzzle... I may be able to help you. As much as you will interview me, I will interview the situation and will only accept contracts where I believe the client will ultimately be successful. My schedule is purposefully left fluid as much as possible to accommodate client deadlines, the beach and sanity. We are most productive when we are energetic and full of life. I can help you create a similar situation for yourself. Due to confidentiality reasons, previous business relationships will not be displayed on a public profile. Please do not ask for samples of business, marketing or strategy plans as these files are critical to the survival of a company, could violate NDA's, unduly expose IP rights and open the doors for legal action. You should expect the same level of respect and confidentiality from me. If you are serious about taking the next step. If you honestly have a burning desire and are ready to do whatever it takes... we need to talk. Rate schedule as of November 2013: Project/Team management, business development, or InfusionSoft related tasks totaling up to 30 hours per week. $40/hr Long-term consulting and/or management of less than 5 hours per week. $100/hr + oDesk fees Sporadic consulting on a 'as needed' basis. $100-250/hr + oDesk fees, dependent on specific industry experience. I have been fortunate enough to work with serious clients on oDesk who appreciate value and have grown multimillion dollar companies. I hope to continue this trend and look forward to contributing to like minded and successful business owners who understand what it takes to live the dream.  less

    Turning your web presence into profit means turning your advertising investments into qualified, valuable, willing traffic.

    While I do have a preferred tool-set, I can adapt to new environments fast, onsite or off. Team or Solo, SMB or Enterprise. I can accept surprises, enjoy exploring alternative solutions where required, accept new roles while retaining a calm - confident composure even under increasing pressure and I take pride in demonstrating this flexibility real-time! Primarily (by popular demand) a LAMP/Linux, Apache, PHP, MySql & HTML5 Developer and IT Business Consultant. I have also worked with, studied (still do) other programming languages, programming constructs and technologies. Well versed in many c-style languages including Perl, Python, Java and Ruby. Linux System Administrator. Senior Drupal Developer & Enthusiast, Acquia Drupal Business Partner, Drupal.org Contributor and Drupalcon Attendee. Expert Level Wordpress and Joomla Developer. Databases: DB2, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MSSQL. I love Git but I can also work with SVN for code management. IDEs: Dreamweaver, PhpStorm, Netbeans, Eclipse and Aptana Studio. Frameworks: CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Zend, Symfony, Aranea, .NET, Monorail and Django. OS Environment: Linux/Unix-like BSD Environment (Ubuntu for development server, some programming & BackTrack Linux to aid with security audits/pentesting). Windows 7 (for everyday office use, Graphics Design and applications like Adobe Creative Suite, general Word Processing, Sketching, Wire-framing, Quality Assurance Processes etc). I'm an avid Information Technology & Social Media Enthusiast, Web Developer and Consultant. By no means am I a jack of all trades, the reason for this skill-set is simple: I enjoy developing successful business models for applications/websites, coding them, writing the content for them and promoting them with SEO and Social Media Marketing (both of which require my strong analytical and writing skills and staying up-to-date with the latest trends). And as a Consultant and Developer there are plenty of times that I stray from this skill set, when opportunity comes knocking, to that of a Full Stack Engineer. Follow and study Google algorithm changes (ex. Hummingbird, Panda, Penguin) and other Search Engine Trends. As a consultant I base my evaluation of a site on a number of major factors (in no specific order): Code, Domain, Page level, Site level, Back-links, User Interaction, Google's own Algorithm Rules, Social, Brand, Onsite Content, Off-site Spam. I have evaluated and optimized sites that were "optimized perfectly" before an update was pushed and suddenly dropped by a couple of pages! Or were penalized for malpractices. There are other search engines out there and I'm an expert on the topic, but if it's good enough for the big G, its good enough for the rest of them. I've been working freelance for 6 years, started of part-time and then realized that I had a loyal client base that appreciated my work, the potential & drive to succeed in an ever-adapting, highly competitive industry and was earning enough to make the transition to a full-time freelancer. I started my career in the customer service field and still enjoy helping customers, building rapport with them and even selling meaningful, truly innovative products. This particular skill instills a sense of security in the minds of the people I work with. For me (and this may sound generic) real-time, concise communication and reporting is key and never goes unnoticed no matter what the task may be. I am also the co-founder of a small business, where we help business of all sizes embrace the latest technology trends, increase revenue, market their products/services to a wider audience (to put it simply) and manage their infrastructure. This allows me to have my own office, all the latest hardware and software and the peace of mind required to meet expectations, adhere to deadlines and generally be more productive. I would like to add (as a matter of fact) that I am an overseas Anglo/Brit living in Pakistan (For obvious reasons, lower cost of living, the same technology we have in developed Countries, High Percentage of IT Professionals etc). My native Language is English. *Note: I'm a professional who has been in the business for years, can provide solid references, timely - accurate reports, deliver solid results, honor commitments and will never fall for exploitation which is becoming all to common in the freelancing business. There are plenty of entry-level individuals out there that still need to prove themselves and will take care of underpaid-poorly planned jobs for you. Not Me, I know what my work is worth. I think I've made my point.  less
