I started working on the internet after I worked for different international call centres around 2010. Before I worked from the comforts of my own home, I used to work for Ebay Buyer Protection Department as a Claims Escalations consultant and I was the one who makes the decision whether the buyer gets awarded a refund if proven the item they purchased from their seller was not as described or not received by doing thorough investigation of the evidence provided by both parties. I was assigned to do emails and outbound/inbound calls to resolve cases and I became the number one agent for months because I had the highest Satisfactory Scores. Although, I was one of the best in doing my job I wasn't happy and I found happiness in working at the comforts of my own home and I never stopped learning new things when I started working from home, especially when I got lucky and started working for Daniel Butler as his virtual assistant. He taught me a lot of new skills needed to do build his websites. Basically, over the past two years I was his SEO and Article writing apprentice. He started building different WORDPRESS websites with a little HTML and builds their page rank by using Link Building methods such as Keyword Research, SEO Article writing, Article Submission to different Article Directories (Paid Article Directories(eg. BuildMyRank), and helped him manage his BuildMyRank Service website before BuildMyRank closed it doors to their customers. He also owned other WordPress websites that I managed by writing website content, adding images, designed banners using Adobe Photoshop. Aside from that, I did research for him for his new Reputation Management website by using Google Places to help him find local business establishments in Sydney with bad reviews.
