    Hello! As a Belgian citizen, I am a NATIVE DUTCH SPEAKER. I am a 27 year old student with a Bachelor's Degree in JOURNALISM and a Master's Degree in CULTURAL STUDIES Currently I'm working for the Brussels correspondence office of the JAPANESE NEWSPAPER 'MAINICHI SHIMBUN'. It is the third largest newspaper in Japan with more than 4 million readers. I follow up press conferences, write reports and translate documents from English to Dutch and vice versa. During my studies as a journalist, I did multiple internships. I worked for the national media station of the Basque Country (Spain) EiTB, where I wrote articles in English and French. Besides that I did an internship at a Belgian film magazine. My job was to write reviews and news articles, and to do proofreading and copywriting. Over the last year, I have done MULTIPLE TRANSLATION JOBS for Lingotek, Language Insight and Appen Butler Hill, as well as some smaller freelance projects (apps, websites, ...). I have written many articles, essays, papers, emails and more in English. I can honestly say I master the language quite well. I've taken the oDesk English to Dutch translation test and scored a 100%. Keywords to highlight my skills are SPEED, FLEXIBILITY and ACCURACY.

    I am an experienced journalist and SEO content writer and over the past 15 years have developed a special knack for saying things the right way. No matter if I'm writing a newspaper article, a software manual or content for a travel website, I pride myself in being able to connect to my audience. I have extensive experience in travel and legal writing as well as social media and activism. I have a Bachelor in criminal justice and many years as an inmate mentor and prison rights activist. I have written travel pieces for major travel guides and USA Today Travel Tips. I specialize in family and group destinations as well as couples vacations. I am an adept social media director with proven results. I can succesfully create and maintain social media platforms that consistantly develop powerful customre bases. From Inbound Marketing (Don't ask me to write for pennies on the dollar. Respect me and I will respect you): Writers are just so incredibly valuable! Let's walk through some basic math here: Let's say you get 200 readers for each of your blog articles because you've been writing consistently and doing a decent-but-not-awesome job. Let's say you have a 5% visit-to-lead conversion rate which is - again - decent but not astounding, so you're getting 10 leads per blog article. Then let's say you have a 5% close rate so you get one customer from every two articles. Let's continue pulling random numbers out of the air to illustrate my train of thought and say you have an average customer life-time-value (A.K.A. LTV) of, oh, $500. My fuzzy math says you make roughly $250 revenue per article! (don't bother trolling the comments arguing about the math - I just wanted to illustrate how we calculate the ROI of blogging). Nowadays you can expect to pay about $30-$40 for a pretty good blog article. That's a pretty amazing ROI! Way higher than most people see with PPC and unfathomably higher than most people see with outbound marketing such as direct mail. You can see why I think that that price will self-regulate itself upwards as more sophisticated companies invest in blogging and a higher quality of blogger emerges. Right now, though, there's a shortage of really great writers who can take often ambiguous customer specifications and create a high velocity of educational, valuable, persona-oriented content that generates leads for customers.  less

    As an experienced Electronics & Communications Engineer and a current Real Estate Developer, I am looking forward to offering my expertise and service globally. I have worked as a technical support engineer for Alcatel-Lucent Philippines, wherein we would service telecommunication companies like Smart, Globe and PLDT. After that, I ventured into my family's real estate business, GNA Realty, wherein I buy lots, construct houses on those lots and then sell them. Being an engineer, learning about real estate and construction was easy and fun. On my spare time though, I occupy myself with writing. It has always been my most beloved hobby. In my college days, I have worked as an online part-time copywriter. In my high school days, I have been am assistant editor/writer in our school paper. Currently, I am writing a novel. That said, I believe these experiences on these different fields coupled with my determination to improve myself and eagerness to learn new things would be of good service to those in need.  less
