My strengths are: * Marketing Strategy for Profit Growth * Marketing Implementation * Forecasting & Budgets * Business Strategy & Business Plans * Social Media Marketing * Market Research * Marketing Assessment & Review I have directed online and offline campaigns, including research-based pricing strategy.

Cathleen Lewis has over 20 years global marketing experience. She established her consulting company in 2009, following several high-profile positions with top agencies and Fortune 500 companies including Ogilvy & Mather, DDB Needham, and Hilton Hotels among others. 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. NOTE REGARDING JOB SUCCESS STAT: I have more than 20 jobs open with past clients. Leaving these jobs open allows them to hire me periodically at the original rate that they hired me at. Some dating back to 2009. This erroneously skews this statistic down since Odesk sees these jobs as “not complete” for the purpose of their statistic. I choose to leave those jobs open as a nod to their loyalty, so, that statistic reflects those jobs as "not completed" but in actuality they are just ongoing and open for the reasons I stated above. I have a lot of high profile experience, however, I also enjoy smaller clients too and always exceed my clients’ expectations. I have an approachable style and believe in candor in communicating with clients. I have successfully led teams as small as three and as large as twenty-five and enjoy a collaborative, productive work environment.

In other words, I play well with others. 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, 2014. I look forward to working with you.

I'm a world-class hooker. No, not the sleazy cheap type that requires a penicillin shot. My "hooker skills" are all about... manipulating conversions. I take your fragile sad-excuse of a business, and mold it into a kick ass empire you can show your grandkids. I know exactly what your users want, how they want it and what makes them happy. Through a series of conversion optimizations, and marketing strategies, paired with hypnotic copywriting, I'll drive customers away from your competition and to your door step. Still reading this? You're already "hooked." See how that works? Here's the shit I've done because you probably care about it: I've been a co-founder of three start-ups. Two of them were acquired and killed off because it rocked the status quo. You're looking at the third one. I've been grilled and have survived YCombinator, Angelpad, and 500 startup interviews. Piece of cake. I've backpacked across South America and South Asia with zero cash. I survived by talking my way into getting food, a hot shower, and a couple of bachelorettes. Takeaway: I've been there. Done that. If you want your business to grow, you're looking at possibly the one person that can do so. STOP wasting your time by reading something I wrote months ago (this profile) and start talking to me in real-time. The button is on the right. If you still can't find it, even I can't help you.
