United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 12

I'm your personal WordPress Guru, with database, photo editing, and writing skills thrown in. I can set up your site from scratch or jump in to an existing site needing changes. I can implement to your preferred specifications, or provide input and advice on how best to proceed. I'm a native English speaker with an extremely high technical skill level and over 13+ years of website development experience. I am proficient in a variety of coding languages and protocols, with particular expertise in Wordpress, HTML, CSS, PHP, both MySQL/MSSQL databases, and some SEO. I can provide graphic and photo services as well as design feedback. I also have a great deal of experience in writing and editing, both technical and non-technical materials. I am very good at communicating both with technicians/engineers and non-technical clients to translate needs and desires into workable engineering and web-based solutions. I hold both a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science and a Master's Degree in Business Administration. I am organized, articulate, and responsible. Your projects will be completed professionally and to your complete satisfaction. Thank you for your consideration! **NOTE** Please disregard the number of "Projects in Progress" that ODesk displays; I have a number of clients who use my services heavily for awhile, but then need nothing for weeks. Rather than starting a new contract each time, we pause the contract, but this still displays as an active contract. Please contact me to determine my actual availability.

Writer, Editor, Translator

Netherlands - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 4

I am a writer who's got a proven track record for delivering. I am knowledgeable, thorough, and precise. I do meticulous research of the topics I am given, and even for the fiction that I write. I am, by nature, a detail-oriented person. My past history includes medical school and graduate-level research, as well as laboratory work and editing scientific papers. As for translating, I have lived in the Netherlands for seven years, and have taken and passed the NT2. My approach to translating is less than literal, but I've always felt that if you can discern that the document is a translation, then the translator has failed. I endeavor not to leave any awkward traces of Dutch.

Copywriter at plantadvertising.com

Australia - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

An Australian copywriter with over 14 years’ experience, I got my first full-time agency position when renowned advertising profile Steve Trygg saw the work I was doing whilst studying at Berghs School of Communication, one of Europe’s foremost marketing academies. Steve immediately offered me employment at his B2B agency SandbergTrygg, at whose European headquarters I then worked in parallel with my copywriting studies. This was way back in 2001. Covering quite technical accounts in the telecommunications, trucking and stock-trading industries, I stayed with SandbergTrygg until relocating to Cairns in 2003. Adpower Plus, at the time North Queensland’s largest advertising agency, then employed me to service their clients – a mix of B2B and B2C companies and organisations, including Stockland Shopping Centres, Pacific Toyota, Medtel, Tourism Tropical North Queensland and Cairns Convention Centre, to name a few. Having made my mark on the Queensland market, I proceeded to go international with my own business in 2006 and have since worked for clients ranging from large corporations and organisations such as Rio Tinto, City West Water and the Maavarim Group to smaller outfits such as Zimperium Technologies, Enteract and Joolca. This has involved research, analysis, conceptualisation, copywriting and creative direction for numerous very different products. In other words: I’m equally at home advertising fast-moving products in the Western retail market as I am selling hospital equipment to African governments. Every last bit of my creative is built on solid research. Simply put, I not only come up with HOW to convey your message; I also provide the strategy required to decide WHAT to say. Since 2011, I am based out of Melbourne, where I run the strategic marketing agency Plant Advertising. And it’s only now that this piece of text is going to get truly valuable to you, because, for all that I’ve told you above, what really matters is how good my actual copy is, right? So, check out the work samples at www.plantadvertising.com or have a look in the special Dropbox folder that I’ve prepared for oDesk clients at http://bit.ly/1t95lkB Remember, whatever copywriter you end up selecting for your project, the whole point of creative is to increase sales or otherwise convince your target group of this, that or the other – and far from all copy does that. Bottom line: if you’re going to compromise on your marketing, you might as well not do it at all. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Paul Walden
