Canada - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 18

Step on the gas & let's go! I help small & new business owners save money and get things done. I save you money by helping you avoid common mistakes and reduce areas of risk as you plan to scale. > If you haven't bought InfusionSoft yet and are considering it. ~ WAIT! ~ I can save you up to $1300 on your set-up fees and possibly more on the monthly commitment! > Are you building a website worth $7500 or more? ~ STOP! ~ Consult with me for 6-10 hours. If I can't find a way to save you as much on your build cost or marketing & operational systems... as the cost of consultation - it's on me. (no charge) > But, wait there's MORE! (lol) In-depth SEO audit & reports of you and you competitors, Marketing + Operations Analysis, Coaching from concept through launch+, plus many other dreadfully boring things nobody but me seems to actually like doing. Frustrated and need intelligent help with the abundance of techie tasks holding you back and eating up time? Making sense of conversion rates, online behavioral marketing, funnels, landing pages, email campaigns, CRMs, social media, memberships, HTML this, CSS that... [What is a cPanel again?] the list goes on and it's mind numbing at best. You need to work on your business. Let me take a load off your shoulders. HAVE SOMETHING MORE ADVANCED IN MIND? Throw me a curve. Do 5 figure months bore you to death? Do you currently gross more than $1m/yr ? Let's cut the small talk and play ball. SERVICE OFFERINGS & RATE SCHEDULE - Analysis / Website Development / General IT / Marketing / InfusionSoft & similar software related tasks totaling up to 30 hours per week. $35/hr - Long-term consulting greater than 10 hours per week. $65/hr - "As Needed" or short-term consulting under 10 hours, $100-250/hr dependent on specific industry experience. TURN 'WORK' INTO PASSION & PLAY Do you want the freedom to spend more time with family and friends? Travel the world? Live spontaneously? Imagine walking the great Wall of China, Swimming in Bora Bora, Climbing a Mayan Temple, or Leaning Tower of Pisa. Perhaps go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef or simply watch the sun set from your favorite resort 1/2 the year? I have done all of this and much more, and I can help YOU realize these types of dreams too! It begins with a relaxed mind and a well oiled online business. My experiences which span 24 years in business and 30+ years online are concentrated on community building, business processes, marketing and general analysis. These skills have been exercised across several industries including: Retail, eCommerce, Hospitality, Fitness,Travel, Real Estate, Charities and Online Community Development. I will work closely with you to understand your exact needs, goals and ambitions. Together, we will discuss the situation and brainstorm potential scenarios until we narrow the field to a working solution. If you require ongoing support, I will be there for you when the time comes to review progress and suggest/implement tweaks as your path or details change. Helping people achieve business goals based on their desired lifestyle has become a passion. I have personally earned a lifestyle which has taken me around the world and have experienced things most will only see in a magazine or on television. It is my purpose and goal to help others create a situation for themselves, where they too have this opportunity to live out loud. During the interview process, I will listen carefully to your concerns and weigh all options before moving forward. I am not looking for a 'job' as much as long term partners. If you have a great idea, a solid team and sufficient finances to back it up, but are lacking a piece of the puzzle... I may be able to help you. As much as you will interview me, I will interview the situation and will only accept contracts where I believe the client will ultimately be successful. My schedule is purposefully left fluid as much as possible to accommodate client deadlines, the beach and sanity. We are most productive when we are energetic and full of life. I can help you create a similar situation for yourself. Due to confidentiality reasons, previous business relationships will not be displayed on a public profile. Please do not ask for samples of business, marketing or strategy plans as these files are critical to the survival of a company, could violate NDA's, unduly expose IP rights and open the doors for legal action. You should expect the same level of respect and confidentiality from me. If you are serious about taking the next step. If you honestly have a burning desire and are ready to do whatever it takes... we need to talk.

Germany - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 7

My objective is to provide business owners with high level of expertise that a part time Business Analyst and Consultant can deliver for a reasonable price and to help business owners make right and profitable business decisions. I deliver total quality output to customers using my education, my real business working experience, and the experience gained with past projects. Experience allows me to be creative and to apply the acquired skills on the spectrum of projects, ranging from data research to comprehensive business analytical and consulting projects. "Quality is not an act, it is a habit." Why it will be the right decision to award me your project? First, I have outstanding analytical skills. My analytical skills honed during gaining my degree in Physics and then while working as a scientific researcher for several years. Second, I love to work and I know how to work with data. I have strong knowledge in business mathematics and in mathematics in whole and I successfully apply this knowledge to business processes. Third, I have developed business intuition that allows me to see and predict the situation on the markets, in particular industry, or in given company. This ability is backed by a decade of working as a business leader in various fields, along with my degrees in Management and International Business. These abilities multiplied by my perfect skills in researching for information allow me to ensure the successful completion of any awarded job and then to present the output in a format that is easily and quickly understandable. My services include five main activities: 1. Business Research & Analysis. Here I suggest basic (in the form of short overview) or comprehensive (in the form of solid report) research and analysis of markets and industries, both young and mature; research and analysis of countries as a whole and their parts: states, territories, and regions; competitors research & analysis; business forecasting; research for potential distributors, wholesalers, dealers; research for manufacturers and producers. I use various research techniques (web research, databases research, networking, direct contacting, and others) and I am confident in PEST, SWOT, Porter’s, BCG’s and similar methods of business analysis. 2. Business Consulting. Today I am an independent Business Consultant focusing on Management Consulting, Corporate Strategy, and Corporate Development. 3. Analytics. The combination of my level of education, my analytical skills, and my intelligence allow me to quickly understand and analyze information and data from any field of activity. Here I offer writing analytical reports on any various topics in Technology, Politics, Sports, Media, and so on. For example, I made a valuable report on Plastic to Oil Conversion Technology (Pyrolysis Process). 4. Data Research & Analysis. In most cases this considers research and analysis of financial figures and indices. I produce basic financial analysis in order to show my Client the current financial situation. However I can research any figures to support your business decision such as a number of personnel, top management’s compensation, decline/increase figures, and many more. 5. Information Research & Analysis. This includes research and analysis of related news; relevant infographycs; staff information like their current positions, bios, contacts; and facts. Also I provide services on researching of hard-to-find information. The complete range of Business Consulting & Analysis activities: - Data Analysis & Data Interpretation - Country Research & Analysis - Market Research & Analysis - Industry Research & Analysis - Competitor Research & Analysis - Business Forecasting - Potential dealers, wholesalers, distributors research - Management Consulting - Business Strategy - Corporate Strategy - Corporate Development - Analytics (Technology, Politics, Sports, Media, Education, and more) - Financial Analysis - Data Research - Information Research (Facts, Statistics, News, Hard-to-Find Information) SAMPLES As part of my commitment to client confidentiality agreement and unique analytics and conclusions, you will not see any significant comprehensive reports as samples on my portfolio. However, I am capable to write solid reports of up to a hundred of pages and more depending on the project's targets. BE INFORMED THAT by no means you will be mentioned in connection with the research and analysis process. I do care about my Client's privacy: each project is done entirely on my behalf or on behalf of third-party company. “Max is a professional. You get what you asked for, on time and at a fair price. When he needed direction, which was seldom, he politely requested it. A pleasure to work with and a first-rate researcher.” — StaffingGandalf, Feb 2013
