Senior Marketing and PR Strategy Executive - US Ba...

United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 14

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. I am also well versed in leading metrics, analytics and remarketing platforms Google Analytics, Improvely and Adrolll among others. Here are some additional areas I have a lot of experience in: Online Strategy and Implementation Oversight Graphic Design (Social Media Promotions, Brochures, Direct Mail) Overall Website Development and Design Public Relations Social Media Strategy + Facebook, LinkedIn Advertising PPC including Adwords (I am a Google Agency) Project and Team Management Brand Integration Event Planning/Management Celebrity Endorsement – A –list Entertainment Global Conference Planning and Oversight - 350+ attendees Crowdfunding Strategy and Implementation SEO – Oversight Affiliate Marketing Marketing and Communications Management Loyalty Program Administration I have proven my ability to lead strategy and development of any campaign, brand or initiative involving many stakeholders and am adept at gaining consensus across multiple constituents when necessary. 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.

Marketing Strategy | Social Media Strategy

United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 4

Add me on Linkedin: http://www.linkedin.com/in/jasonrockwood ABOUT ME: Hello! I am an experienced digital marketing executive specializing in social media and marketing tactics for small businesses. I've worked corporately on some of the world's largest brands, and independently helping agencies and small businesses meet their marketing goals. I am currently employed full-time at Lithium Technologies, where I am a senior level social media consultant, helping my clients build communities on their own web domain. This position requires me to be well versed in project management, team building, social strategy, and cross-channel digital strategy. I was previously Vice President, Strategy Director, at Havas Media in New York, where I led integrated marketing strategy across traditional, digital, mobile, social, experiential and emerging media. I worked for Dannon and Fidelity, LVMH, and the NFL. Before that, I was Tribal DDB, where I was Director of Social Strategy, servicing a variety of clients across health-care, retail, and B2B sectors. Clients included Pfizer Consumer Healthcare (Advil, Robitussin, ThermaCare and Centrum), Johnson & Johnson, and Hiscox Business Insurance. I've also worked at R/GA, a leading digital agency, where I helped create the social strategy for Walmart and Verizon. My team's work on the Walmart Moms, CrowdSaver, and Facebook helped Walmart win a prestigious Media Vanguard Award for Best Social Media Strategy for a National Retailer in 2010. Additionally, I spent several years as a digital strategist to Luxottica Retail, providing social and digital strategy for brands such as SunglassHut, LensCrafters, and Pearle. And I've worked for Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society and MIT's GAMBIT video game laboratory. I was educated at MIT, where I earned a Master of Science in Comparative Media Studies. I also have a B.A. in Communication Arts and Sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. -- WHAT I OFFER: My target clients are small and medium businesses that are skeptical of the large investments required to retain an agency. If you've called around to an agency and they've quoted you $5,000 a month or more to "promote your business" but they don't tell you exactly what they are going to do, then send me a note. I've worked on both the client-side and the agency-side so I know their pitches inside and out. You do NOT need to spend that much money to get a first-rate marketing program. I can work for you at a fraction of the cost and give you the inside track on how to get the most for your money. Don't overspend when you're first starting out; cut out the middle man and work directly with me. Additionally, I can help you build your team at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time marketing person. Hiring someone like me to work for you full-time may well be an unnecessary expense. I can be on call to help you hire, train, manage, and grow your own social media team, so that you can pay for a strategist only when required. It's a great partnership that saves you money and gives you access to Madison Avenue marketing strategy for a fraction of the cost. -- Specialties: ★ Facebook Marketing / Facebook Strategy / Facebook Paid Media Ad Campaigns ★ Digital Strategy ★ Guerilla Marketing for Startups ★ Copywriting ★ Forums and online community building ★ Twitter Strategy ★ Instagram Strategy ★ Moderation and Process development ★ Social Media Marketing Team development ★ Social Analytics Consulting ★ Brand planning ★ Marketing strategy ★ Content strategy ★ Advising on locating an agency or working with one

Hooker.

United States - Last active: 2 days ago

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.

Panda and Pigeon have changed the Google search results forever. Now, Your online presence needs to be sustainable, competitive and of high quality. As SEO & SEM professional i know all about the latest algorithms. I will help you achieve your goals online while keeping an eye on ROI. 1. Better than 98% according to oDesk SEO test 2. ~Four years oDesk: 98.3% of all 56 clients gave 5-star feedback, just 1 gave 4.70 ...not bad, right :) 3. Top-11 Marketing from +250,000 freelancers (Featuring on their homepage in Jan. 2015, see screenshot below) 4. Over 3,100 hours working experience through oDesk and 56 clients served ***Fortune-500 businesses and local companies alike*** Through famous agencies, I did projects for American Express, Expedia, Marriott Hotels, Silvercar and a variety of start-ups and established (local) companies. I set up SEO-teams that vary in size from 2 - 12 people for clients and mostly act as an SEO-specialist myself. Digital marketing strategies, Link building, outreach and onSite optimisation have no secrets for me. NO GOALS SET YET? NO PLAN? ....No problem.... Let's develop those! I will help you setup a solid digital strategy and plan with KPI's, we can do a keyword and/or competitor analysis too, so you're never starting something without having a solid foundation. I have a University degree in Business (Major business, minor marketing) and broad experience with working in advertising agencies. Whether B2B or B2C, I believe passionately that good marketing essentials are the same. We all are emotional beings looking for relevance, context and connection. About content marketing: good content builds relationships. Relationships are built on trust. Trust drives revenue. I'm from Amsterdam (The Netherlands, EU) and my nationality is Dutch, i have lived in Berlin and Spain and currently live in Panama City. Please be realistic about budget vs. goals though, if your main competitors are spending +$5,000/month on expertise you won't get much with let's say $500/ month http://www.bouwcenterhci.nl/ (construction) +71,000 visitors/yr. http://www.profilerscommunicatie.nl/ (advertising) +24,000 visitors/yr. http://www.lighthouseip.com/ (Optimising their website) https://www.americanexpress.com/ (built over 50 high quality links) http://www.oxenerschoenen.nl/ (UGG luxury footwear) +57,000 visitors/yr. oDesk SEO test: the test says "Top 10%" but if you click the test results you can see that i'm actually in the top 1.4% of everyone that ever made this test. Please research and click "details". *** THINKING OF EXPANDING INTERNATIONALLY? IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY! My *secret* passions are Medical and Technical writing. I LOVE to get to the bottom of things and research / write about a variety of topics. Actually, I have been writing articles and scripts since i was 15, in a variety of languages. And I love languages! Language pairs i control (if you need translations done): Dutch -> English English -> Dutch Spanish -> Dutch Spanish -> English German -> Dutch German -> English *** One of my best experiences was working closely together with "James Agate" at SkyRocket SEO in Brighton - UK. For over a year i worked for him on a variety of projects and managed an international SEO-team. James is well known within the industry and an established author on moz.com. I'm the kind of person that always tries to think with you, therefore i think i can be of great value to your business....
