    To Whom It May Concern, Hi. My name is Robin. I am not normally the type of person who likes to toot her own horn. However, since this is the area of the oDesk profile in which horn tooting is encouraged, here I go . . . I left a promising career after 15 years in the corporate world to be a stay-at-home mom and began working as an oDesk contractor three and a half years ago when my daughter started to drive and no longer needed me to be her chauffeur. I have since worked over 3,800 hours for oDesk while managing to maintain a 4.99 rating, which any contractor will tell you is no small feat. I love working from home, and I love oDesk too. I love the variety of jobs and the wonderful clients for whom I have had the pleasure to work. Not having to commute to an office five days a week is not a bad perk either. While my corporate background is in project management and executive-level assisting, my true passion lies in the development of fantastic, responsive-design HTML email campaigns and lucrative email marketing. Designing the perfect email, maintaining great lists, building profitable autoresponders, and creating beautiful, informative reports are things that I greatly enjoy and on which I pride myself. In short, I want to custom design and build your next email marketing campaign! Examples of my work can be found in my Portfolio, and any email marketing solution (i.e. Mailchimp, Constant Contact, Campaigner, Vertical Response, etc.) is welcome. Plus, I will provide a free design mockup to any serious, potential client prior to beginning work. Feel free to contact me to learn how I can help your business grow with a professionally designed and executed custom email campaign. I look forward to hearing from and hopefully working with you! Sincerely, Robin M. PLEASE NOTE: My apologies for any inconvenience, but I will only do fixed-price campaigns for individuals/companies with established oDesk history, as I have been burned in the past by others new to oDesk. I will, however, keep my hourly rate and time logged within budget for individuals/companies new to oDesk until a working relationship has been established. Thank you.  less

    Whether you need formal documentation of your company's processes and procedures, or business content for your website or blog, or a simple quick-start guide for using a new system, perhaps I am the writer you have been looking for. U.S. English is my native language and I have been using my skill and gift as a "wordsmith" for 30+ years in technical, business and creative areas where the written word is needed to communicate information to others. My core talent is the ability to create clear and concise content for external clients and internal staff and co-workers. For the past 3+ years, I wrote reference and operations manuals for new franchisors. I am also a skilled proofreader and editor. I am a very detail-oriented writer regarding proper grammar, usage, punctuation and clarity. Further, I am well aware of factors that influence the readability (formatting, spacing, use of attributes, document layout, etc.) of a document/manual. Tools I have used include: MS Word (Advanced), Sharepoint (Intermediate), Adobe Acrobat (Intermediate), and WordPress (Basic). Samples of my work are readily available in the Portfolio section of my oDesk profile. Others can be provided on request.  less

    My objective is to help clients create marketing/sales leverage. Archimedes discovered the principle of leverage, how a small weight can move a large object. And marketing leverage is how businesses grow. Identify the fulcrum (aka "The Big Idea"), apply marketing weight, and lift sales dramatically. With 20 years of marketing and sales management experience at big (Pepsi, Holiday Inn, AAA) and small companies, I've managed virtually every aspect of strategic planning, marketing and sales program development, collateral and communications production, internet presence, and research and analysis. Two of my programs won national "Best of the Year" honors in separate industries. I have a degree from the Wharton School. I appreciate working with clients who understand the value of talent and experience, and who expect great results.  less

    As a designer and creative, my goals are to communicate with my (your) audience. I design around your story; what you are as a business and a person. When we use an element from our own story or our own experiences and use that to connect with the audience, it brings our work to a completely new level of communication. I have worked with multiple clients using this process and always succeeded in achieving their design and marketing goals. I am very friendly and most people seem to really like me. I am eager to work on most anything dealing with design. I love to read about design, collage, illustrate, work with typography, shoot and edit video, and explore photography. I find that almost all things dealing with art are related in some way and that I can apply my design skills to almost any field of creative exploration. My goal as of now is to be a digital designer in Chicago, IL and eventually start teaching young designers at a University level. I love to teach!  less
