    STOP. If you're reading this, you've probably already gone through dozens of oDesk profiles looking for the right person who can turn your product around. It might be cliche to say this, but yes, I'm the person you're looking for. ** I'm currently not accepting any new projects under 10 hours. Thanks for the interest. ** As one of the best UI & UX designers on oDesk, I constantly strive to understand how users react to certain elements and improve conversions. I consider good UX to be more than just pretty pixels. It's about user flow - being able to lead your customers step by step through each section of your site with minimal distraction. It's about making your users do what YOU want them to do, rather than helplessly hoping that they'll use the site the way you envision it. UI is like the makeup that goes on after - it's sole purpose is to attract and seduce customers to your site. This is exactly the reason why you would never see a model without makeup (Trust me, it's not a pretty sight). Without UI, you don't have a completed product. If you're looking for logo design, graphics design, photo editing, you're definitely looking at the wrong person. I focus on interface design and the user experience behind it because that's what I'm GREAT at. Hiring me for something else would just be a waste of time for both you and I. If you take a look at my profile, I don't negotiate rates. I charge what I charge because I'm better than all the profiles you've seen so far and it saves you hours of time in the long run because you'll end up with the finished product exactly the way you want it. I also specialize in Startup Consultation, having founded 6 startups myself ( 3 of them being marketplaces) and have worked for 5 companies including a Fortune 500. I've helped dozens of startups scale as a growth hacker and always come up with new innovative ways to beat the competition. You might have the world's greatest idea, but what's the use if it doesn't take off? I'm the guy you talk to for brutally honest, constructive feedback. I ask the hard questions and help you validate your idea because chances are - it's usually not as perfect an idea that you'd like to believe. I'll save you months (possibly years) of your time by teaching you what to focus on so you don't fail the first time. PLEASE NOTE: I am no longer doing UI without first doing a UX analysis. If users can't understand how to navigate through your site, it doesn't matter how pretty it looks because they're still going to be frustrated enough to never come back. I am open to signing NDAs if it makes you feel better, but I will no longer consult with startups until a contract has been made. Show me that you're serious and not wasting time by creating a contract upfront. For those looking for me to code the HTML/CSS/JS front end of your design to make it fully responsive and cross-browser compatible, I can do so at $100/hr. Still interested? Let's chat.  less

    I am a business and innovation counsel with in-house expertise in assessing business needs to provide legal advice that achieves the desired business outcome. I have a full service law firm, No Other IP, that provides Patent (Utility and Design), Trademark, Copyright, IP Agreement, Contract Negotiations and IP Protection Strategy with a Global Business Outlook. I am a registered patent attorney licensed to practice law in DC, MD, VA and before the United States Supreme Court. No Other IP provides to level the negotiations playing field. Many smaller companies do not have the budget or volume of work to justify hiring in-house patent counsel. We provide “outside” in-house counsel for small to mid-sized companies giving them the same legal advantage and expertise that larger companies can afford, but at a fraction of the cost. Highlights of my experience include: o Innovation Counsel for The Coca-Cola Company o Intellectual Property & Business Transactions Counsel for Rhodia Inc. o CEO of No Other Council, providing strategic business development consulting  less

    I am part of a two-person team that lives for designing logos, branding materials, websites, infographics, presentations, and all sorts of graphics for a diversity of clients. What makes me unique is the insight I've gained from being an entrepreneur myself. I think I approach branding and the visual side of business with a different perspective than most designers. I am very detail and deadline-oriented, and I make sure to my clients can rely on me. I have a particular affinity for startup clients. I know what it takes to start a business (as I said, the fire of entrepreneurship burns bright in my heart) and I can definitely help you figure things out. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to see my full resume and online portfolio.  less

    *** One of oDesk’s Top Contractors of 2012*** I seek to fulfill assignments for all my clients in a quick and professional manner. My three watchwords are Reliability, Consistency, and Honesty. You, my potential client, are likely looking to use the internet to market your product or service. You may lack a particular skill or piece of marketing expertise, and you’re looking for a contractor to help you solve your problems. Hopefully, I can help you end your search; I’ve been helping clients solve their internet marketing problems, both large and small, for nearly 15 years now. In just the past 12 months right here on oDesk, I have received near-perfect feedback from over 75 separate clients. So, how can I help you, specifically? Most people who find their way here will be in need of a writer. The written (or increasingly, typed) word still remains the basis of all communication, and therefore, all marketing efforts as well. That’s why I’ve gone out of my way to master the English language. I’m actually one of the 50 highest-rated contractors in the entire U.S.A. in terms of Written English proficiency according to Brainbench, the worlds’ largest third-party skills certification site. I can imbue even the most pedestrian of prose with a verve and vitality anyone would be hard-pressed to match. If you need simple content, such as static web pages, blog posts, product reviews and the like, I can discover the unique selling points of your product or service and create crisp, clear, top-quality content that will convert to sales for you at higher rates than you thought possible. Or perhaps you are in the market for something a bit more complex? Have no fear – the more challenging the project the more I enjoy working on it. Thusly, I also write Press Releases (fully AP formatted and styled), do resume touch-ups, personal Bios, eBooks, video scripts, storyboarding, and more. If it can be written, I can write it, and at the very highest level of quality. I even work on Academic and authority-level writing. I can assist with editing your dissertation, proofreading your thesis, or researching and drafting industry white papers or grants. I’m also sensitive to the needs of ESL students who understand their content but have difficulty demonstrating that fact in English. Maybe you don’t need any content at the moment though. What can I do for clients who need other services? Quite a bit. My expertise extends into technical areas as well. I’m able to offer cutting-edge web design services, and also offer fully administered SEM campaigns. Whether you are looking to get organic results in SEO, go viral with Social Media Marketing (SMM), or acquire targeted traffic through a PPC campaign, I can assist you every step of the way, from campaign design, to execution, to the ongoing monitoring and maintenance required to successfully execute a modern inbound marketing campaign. I’m AdWords certified and have agency-level subscriptions to all major industry software. I even have a fully equipped recording studio available at my home office and am an accomplished Audio-Visual engineer; I can produce anything from simple YouTube style explainer videos or personal testimonials to full on custom animation designed from the ground up to suit your project. Finally, you might be here because you’re in need of a business consultant, someone who can help you make sense of the big picture. You may need help tweaking a business or marketing plan, or assistance developing a process document. You may even just want some old fashioned niche research done. I can assist you with these projects, and more. All of my strategic advice is predicated on in-depth research, and focuses on demonstrating clear ROI to clients as soon as possible. So if you find yourself in need of top-quality content of any sort, assistance developing or implementing a modern marketing campaign, or a business consultant to help you navigate a particularly thorny development, please reach out to me. You and your bottom line will both be glad you did. I look forward to hearing from you!  less

    Co-Founder, CEO and Product Lead of SkillGravity, Startup Advisor, I have been bootstrapping the company of 7 people for 2 years.

    To assist small business owners realize their full potential by offering consultation, analytical, management and technical services which will increase margins and bolster the company brand. In a nut-shell, I help make things happen and dreams come true. 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. I have done all of this and much more, and I can help YOU realize these types of dreams too! It begins with a stable and efficient business. My experiences which span 24 years in business and 32 years with computers are concentrated on development, sales, marketing and analysis. These skills have been exercised across several industries including: Retail, eCommerce, Hospitality, Fitness and Travel. 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 life and business goals is a passion. I have personally earned a lifestyle which has taken me around the world and experience things most will only see in a magazine or 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 and action plans 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. Rate schedule as of November 2013: Project/Team management, business development, or InfusionSoft related tasks totaling up to 30 hours per week. $40/hr Long-term consulting and/or management of less than 5 hours per week. $100/hr + oDesk fees Sporadic consulting on a 'as needed' basis. $100-250/hr + oDesk fees, dependent on specific industry experience. I have been fortunate enough to work with serious clients on oDesk who appreciate value and have grown multimillion dollar companies. I hope to continue this trend and look forward to contributing to like minded and successful business owners who understand what it takes to live the dream.  less
