eCommerce Marketing Manager & Analyst

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 6

I'm an experienced eComm marketing strategist, with a focus on data analysis. If you sell products or services online, you (hopefully!) already have the data necessary to make smart, strategic marketing decisions. My focus is on synthesizing what your customers and potential customers are already telling you through their user behavior, and turning that into actionable tactics. I've worked with both small ($1M/yr revenue) and large ($4B+/yr) companies. My experience is broad, across various marketing channels like PPC, email, social, mobile, SEO, affiliate, content, retargeting, PLA. I enjoy it all, but my passion is the combination of data and creativity. Ask yourself this: what effect does my visitors' screen resolution have on my conversion rate? Or: What was the result of the most recent A/B landing page test for my Widget Adwords campaign? Or even: Traffic from social media channels has spiked over the past two months thanks to our content efforts. What sort of revenue or ROI are we seeing across each channel? I'm well-equipped and experienced to handle all of these and more! I think most businesses don't need marketers...they need someone who can turn the available data into a legitimate test and who understand the driving mechanisms of purchase mentality. Send me an invite today, and let's talk!

Top 10 Percent on oDesk for Online Marketing

United States - Last active: 12/02/2014 - Tests: 6

►Top 10% on oDesk for Google Analytics ►Top 20% on oDesk for Google Adwords --I use both of those tools together simultaneously to create positive ROI for my clients. Examples of work provided on request. ________________________________________________________ ►Top 20% on oDesk for SEO - I current consult and provide strategy and ideas for SEO projects but do *not* do linkbuilding because of the risks associated with current and future Google algorithm updates. Anyone that says their SEO plan for you involves 'tailored' or 'many linkes from PR5+ sites' is going to hurt your website. Pick someone like me that does this stuff for a salaried living. ►1st place on oDesk for English spelling test and Top 20% for English skills - Many people on oDesk can speak relatively good fluent English. Few can write compelling ad text and website copy that connects with native English speakers. ________________________________________________________ Who I am: Online marketing expert with 7 years of experience currently based in Denver, CO, USA. My specialties are in Google Adwords, Analytics, Bing Ads, and on-site SEO. I am certified by Google in all available Adwords exams and also in Bing's Adcenter. I'm currently looking for a few select clients to work on a contract basis for any of the above services. I'm not interested in working with people that cannot afford my reasonable hourly rate (given my experience and certifications) or those that do not have a large enough retainer for me to improve campaigns and see drastic ROI increases. Who I am looking to work for: An established small business or agency that is interested in contracting out freelance Adwords, Analytics, or Bings Ads work. This is someone that is has clearly identified goals (sales, leads, etc) and is interested in more of a long-term partnership instead of short one-offs. -I believe that character matters. I'm not here to make a quick buck, I want to provide real value and create a trusting and long-lasting business relationship for a fair price. Nothing more, nothing less. -Relationships do matter. When people say things like, "It's just business" that means they are in the business of ripping people off. I give honest and direct answers and will not steer you in the wrong direction, even if it means less money for me. Honesty and transparency = greater long term rewards.

They say if you want something done fast, well and cheap, the best you’ll ever get is two out of three. However, you can get your marketing content creation, copywriting and ghostwriting needs met fast, well and affordably – if you hire me. As a copywriter/editor, Fortune-500-executive speechwriter and marketing communications manager with 18+ years of experience, I’m at my best when delivering compelling, crystal-clear content that keeps audiences hooked. As a creative writer with produced stage and television credits, I’m called to breathe new life into subject matter previously considered dry, boring or terminally unexciting. I’ve spent most of my career supporting the efforts of large corporations (Sony, Disney, News Corporation, BNY/Mellon and Wells Fargo). Now I’m focused on writing and publishing e-books and other content focused on making people’s lives better, as well as ghostwriting for fellow author-publisher-entrepreneurs and supporting small-to-medium-sized businesses in effectively communicating to their audiences. (I’m also available for C-Level speechwriting, corporate communications strategy and marcom planning at different rates.) In short, please call on me to deliver the quality content or copy you need at any stage of your project, from initial concept to content creation to marketing and PR materials. Thank you for considering me and best of luck to you in your endeavors.

With over 10 years of SEO and web development experience I can do a lot for your business. From creating a website until reaching top positions in the major search engines. I can manage multiple small or large projects at once and I can advise on website migrations.I use only quality white hat SEO methods for guaranteed results and I am up to date with all the changes in this industry. On my last workplace I was the manager of the SEO department at an international media company covering Romania, Hungary, Austria and Ukraine that had a total of over 100 web portals and over 500 employees. I have created and designed until now over 200 websites mostly by using third party CMS web software like Wordpress/Joomla and I helped out over 100 different websites in different niches and from different countries to improve their rankings. I am punctual, I like to deliver the projects on time, I am integrating quick into the work environment, I have the ability to organize and manage multiple projects and the capability of adapting and learning new SEO rules and apply them. I am also interested on everything that is new in this field and I am up to date with all the news. Here is a short list of what I can do for your business: Keyword Research Reports Mobile Friendly Website Optimization Onpage/Offpage optimization Image/Video Optimization Local Search Optimization Content Writing/Publishing Social media management I am not a programmer so I do not touch complex changes in the website. I'm not your guy if you want a custom plugin or a function to be created. My work as a consultant contains detailed information on how to improve elements of your website. The actual implementation will be done by your programmers or on some cases by me. My offpage work consists in implementing and suggesting the best ways to achieve quality links from link analysis to implementation based on the client's budget. I do not make AdWords campagins or ads optimization (for that I have a colleague).
