As a transcriptionist I've been working with transcripts in technical field, economy classes/lectures, teacher/student interviews and I've done several legal transcriptions, as well as medical classes/lectures. My strongest fields are technology, internet marketing, real estate and general discussions. I'm a skilful, pretty fast and accurate typist (85+ wpm) I deliver very good TAT (7 hours for 1 hour of audio, with included proofreading). I pay a lot of attention to research, when it comes to working on some things I'm not that familiar with, unknown subjects so I always strive to get the names and all the spellings correct. I also proof my work before handing it back to my clients. My usual work involves using my default/general template, placing 5-minute timestamps and excluding the usual stuttering, mumbling, repeated words and such. Everything I'm unable to hear for the first time is labeled as inaudible, most of which I can deal with in my second run through the file, proofreading. I also do occasional work involving graphic, logo and print design. Feel free to browse through my portfolio to see my past work.

Local SEO Ninja

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

Over the last 6 years, I have learned and implemented many SEO campaigns and a wide range of websites and have found what works and what doesn't, including sites for start-up companies and small businesses. (I have screenshots of ranking increases to prove it see my portfolio below) I have also got websites out of Penguin and Panda penalties handed down by Google (Don't know what that is? Ask!). As well as wrote many passionate articles and news releases which saw a real impact. My objective now is to work with companies to get all of their Search Engine Optimization needs met, in a fast and orderly manner. To this aim I just now started my own SEO firm here on Odesk just to help small businesses get seen on the internet. Not only that... I have been actively involved in various computer services/jobs for the last 10 years. Doing everything from being the Human Resource manager for a multi-million dollar company, to keeping records on Quickbooks, and using Photoshop to edit photos, design websites, and other promotional material like banner ads. So I am a well rounded individual that can draw upon a long history of working with businesses and can see many different options for you and your business internet needs.
