Revelling in the best conversion rate I've had so far: 71.24% in a lead generation campaign that I launched on Facebook for my client 2 days ago (14Oct2014)!. I've increased the budget and I'm excited to see where this is going to take us :-) Update 31Oct2014: It's still holding between 69-70% conversion rate, tweaked the targeting, hiked the budget and keeping fingers crossed! Update 27Jan2015: Crossed a whopping 20,000 conversions in 3 months! Conversion Rate steady at around 50%. Update 3March2015: 25,000 leads in 18 weeks & counting! Conversion Rate holding around 50% with constant tweaks to audience, budget, ad copy, etc. 30March2015: I seem to have also hit the perfect balance for another client's lead generation campaign that gave us a CTR of 24.67% for just $27.63 (Cost per click: $0.02 - 1724 clicks in just 3 days). Although I have to admit that I haven't seen anything remotely close to this conversion rate, I strongly believe that of all internet marketing efforts, Facebook Advertising truly offers value for your money but only if your advertising campaigns are managed well. That's where I come in. So, if you are sitting on the fence about FB advertising as you just don't have the time or the right people to take the learning curve, you should seriously consider hiring me to get your targeted advertising off the ground. If you've already tasted how good FB advertising can be for your business, you should hire me to keep it flying high. Or if you are on the verge of giving up as you are just not able to figure out FB's idiosyncrasies, you could let me have a look at your ad campaigns and your landing pages to see if there's something you haven't tried yet. I have been managing Facebook advertising for clients since December 2013 and find it very rewarding both for my clients and for me! I have tried and tested several ads and campaigns and have created reporting systems that make some sense of Facebook's confusing reports. I've attended several webinars by experts and brainstormed a few. I maintain a close eye on ad/campaign performance and create new ads or edit existing ads according to audience reactions. I'm really good at creating landing pages that convert. I use Unbounce and LeadPages. I work well with design and development teams. I keep my finger on the pulse of what's happening so I'm usually full of new ideas on how to make campaigns better and laser focused on conversions. I have more than 20 years experience in managing projects, organising and simplifying complicated processes, creating appropriate documentation to capture important data, hiring staff, writing and editing content, transcribing audio clips, creating presentations, web research, etc. I worked as a personal assistant to top management in 4 different organisations (Calcutta Jute Industries, Growmore Business Associates, Maranatha Charitable Organisation, Willingdon Hospital) over a period of ten years (1988 to 1998) which included extensive administrative work involving independent decision-making and business correspondence. I also ran a small business for 12 years (1996 to 2008). I simultaneously worked in the field of clinical research as a freelance clinical trials coordinator in several hospitals in Chennai, India, which involved considerable documentation, data entry and compilation, independent correspondence, etc. Both these fields involved extensive data entry and database management. I have since headed a clinical research site management organisation, Merit Medical and Allied Sciences Pvt. Ltd. in Chennai as the CEO from 2007 to 2009. As it was a start up, I did everything that is required to set up the organisation from finding the right location, hiring the right staff, interacting with clients, putting together business proposals to setting up processes and documentation. In January 2010, I broke a leg in a road accident and this kept me confined to bed for a few months when I discovered working online through oDesk. There has been no turning back since then. It has been an awesome experience the last five years, working with clients from all over the world and I wouldn't exchange this for anything else!
I write neat, clean and to-the-point busniess plans. If you are looking for a person with a thinking head on, with creativity and deep understanding of entrepreneurship (being an entrepreneur himself), then I am your guy. I am an entrepreneur and business strategy / business development consultant, specialising in eCommerce, Software and IT (especially for start-ups and SMEs- but have worked with large corporations also). Ranked in top 10% on oDesk for Business Plans and Business Strategy, and with my extensive background in Engineering, Computer Sciences and Business (2 Bachelors and 1 Master’s degree), an MBA with Specialization in Leadership Studies, Fellowship of Saltire Foundation with advanced courses in Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Sales and Marketing from Babson College (rated #1 for Entrepreneurship studies), I have the necessary background to understand your business and help you in coming up with marketing and technology solutions for your business needs. Being an entrepreneur myself who has started multiple start-ups and brought innovations to the market, I can understand and help you with the business plan and business processes to raise funding, convince key stake holders or partners, and make your business a success story. I am very good in telling a compelling story (afterall that is what a business plan must do!) and substantiating and backing up the story with financial modelling / projections and creating great to-the-point presentations (I have a lot of experience in MS Excel and MS PowerPoint/Prezi). With Strategic insight and keen business acumen, Winner of the National Business Plan Competition (Scotland), I have developed my own templates and models for financial projections that allows you to try out different scenarios (different rates of growth, change costs and sales assumptions to test the viability and robustness of your business model). It empowers you to continue making changes on your own. Over the last 10 years, I have been involved with and developed a wide range of technology based businesses, especially in the Information Technology area, developing web and mobile based solutions and applications. These solutions have involved ASP.Net, HTML, SQL Server, PHP and MySQL, as well as iPhone apps on the App Store. I have developed expertise in business development for start up companies and small businesses bringing new ideas to market as well as entrepreneurial departments / divisions of corporations looking for changing their business processes to become more efficient and productive. My core competency is in complete end-end management of a new business idea's design, development, implementation and bringing it to fruition. I am seeking opportunities to build business from the ground up for you. I am (re-assuringly) expensive, because quality comes at a price (however, since I work fast, the overall cost may be quite economical). When you are making a decision on engagement of a business plan writer and strategic advisor, think about this: 'Can you afford your business plan not to be absolutely top notch, the best it could be? If the funding you are seeking is quite important, hiring the best person and getting the best professionally written business plan might make the difference between getting it or not getting it, or getting the deal at much better terms!!! Let's talk! .
Sourcing and organizing quality information/data is what I love to do most. For me the beauty lies in not only sourcing the right information but also presenting in such a way as to give it meaning and help my client to change mere information into usable knowledge. I specialize in desktop research, data collection and analysis, while applying my writing skills to write outstanding, well researched reports. Preparing presentations or presentation notes for my clients has become one of the skills many rely on, especially when deadlines are looming. As web designer I focus on content rich sites using HTML or CMS design to build effective websites. As consultant my focus is on e-waste and hazardous waste management in Africa and I have been involved in research and report writing on several energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
I have the passion to work and the passion to learn. I work not just to earn money, but to earn experience and be of help to clients who are in search for a reliable worker. I work with minimal supervision. Just give me a clear instruction and I will deliver the task well done and on time.I finished a degree in Information Technology (IT) and within 5 years I personally worked as: * Customer Service Representative (US-based telephone companies) * Database Encoder (Department of Education) * Computer Lecturer (Tarlac State University) With these experiences I developed skills in: * data entry(Word,Excel,Calc,Writer) * web research/data mining/emailing * typing (average of 40wpm) * editing (photoshop,paint) AND LOOKING FORWARD TO ACQUIRE MORE SKILLS FROM YOU!
