    Ranked as a Top 5% Contractor by Odesk ( http://bit.ly/SonalPort ) I am a woman of many talents, and one of my strongest is my ability is to juggle many different tasks at the same time and deal with any emergencies that come up. Armed with a Double Masters in Computer Applications (MCA) and Business Administration (MBA) , I can make short work of the most challenging tasks at hand. I have over 10 years of experience at the executive level having worked with a large number of corporate & individual clients . I also have a professional and a quiet home office which allows me to cater to any assignments that I take up. Having worked as Director Marketing of a large marketing firm in New Delhi , India , I have executive level experience and can also take directions as an employee. I have implemented new Business Development Teams as I continued to work at Director level and a hands on Sales manager position which required excellent organizational skills on my part. Having indirectly managed a workforce of 125+ employees and directly managing a team of 35 I can effectively manage both large and small teams depending on what the project entails. I have setup businesses from the ground up and built up customer bases that were traditionally considered to be very hard to reach. Clients who were on the verge on bankruptcy have had their businesses turned around into profitable ventures with my intervention. No matter how big or small your project is, regardless if your company is an industry giant, a mom and pop shop or anything in between; I will help you increase your sales, capture more market share, and slash the sales cycle. I am very serious about any project that I take up whether large or small and the services I provide are tailor made to my clients specific needs. I believe that I am efficient, cost effective and can guarantee a quick turn-around. I have a very clear vision of my mission: To help you make money over and over by combining some very important elements of successful selling: a. years of successful marketing expertise, b. techno-commercial background and c. writing skills that grab readers’ attention, connect with their needs, build a vision and motivate them to take action. For me, it is also extremely important to gain the trust of the people for whom I work for and with. I think out of the box and will perpetually be bouncing of lots of ideas as I believe that constant brainstorming is one the keys to success. I will be asking a lot of questions so that I can completely understand your goals and requirements. I am perfectly capable of either following or giving instructions as per the demands of the job at hand. I work very quickly and believe that delivering quality work is my forte . Once I have your project in my hands – I will give my very best. I believe that truth and constant communication are the integrals of a successful collaboration especially so in the virtual environment . Helping clients to successfully champion social media campaigns through engagement using new tools and technologies, with a track record of creating and implementing profitable social media marketing projects. Currently reaching out to over 1 million facebook users on a daily basis, I keep up-to-date with constantly evolving technologies in online social networking, the blogosphere, search tools ,Web 2.0 and work closely with clients to create innovative, effective campaigns. My experience includes: PPC campaigns - Adwords, Yahoo, MSN, website optimization & support, website migration support, web content writing, web research Facebook and Social media marketing. Experienced in rolling out online start-ups including branding, I can really give your business that lift it needs to reach above the competition and be both highly visible to search engines and useful to your readers and visitors. Computer Skills : I have yet to find a program that I cannot navigate and eventually master in a short amount of time. I have experience in just about every office application/software that's on the market including nearly all web-based applications. Having being presented with my first computer the ZX Spectrum+ at the age of 7 (for those of you who remember), there has been no looking back and I currently have access to the most sophisticated computer hardware and software around. I have also taken a variety of the tests conducted by Odesk as can be seen in my profile below to demonstrate my extensive all round capabilities. I believe that freelancing my skills in the global world would give me more experience and expertise than any other job. With the internet having shrunk boundaries to a few milliseconds, here I am – A Professional Marketing, Project Management , PR & Advertising Freelance Consultant. I look forward to hearing from you!  less

    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

    Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. The key element to success is simple; everyone involved must execute precisely and in a common collaborative framework to advance the charter. There must be a commitment to a full-on, often exhaustive effort and focus. This is a space I've lived in for over 20 years, successfully and repeatedly. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute on plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans (Marketing, Sales, and/or Technical), create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver results to their bottom line, become "viable", and position for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform, both internally and to external stakeholders, whether they be vendors, clients or investors. I provide Business Advisory services, across multiple disciplines and verticals, for companies that can benefit from my experience, expertise & help. I find many with great business "concepts" but not yet matured to a level where they can effectively advance their goals or secure capital. My time and focus is now spent helping start up and early stage companies achieve success while enjoying some of the fruits of my career to date. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure at a granular level. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, the market dynamics, the team, and strategy. I request information on financials and ongoing capital requirements. I need to see the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Vision cannot stand on its own..., it begins with what I like to call "the big idea" but it must then evolve into a collective strategy with all members focused and on board. Then, with the right team, and even a little luck, success can manifest itself in a successful outcome. This path can sometimes get mired in the order of things yet it all comes down to one simple equation; "structured execution". Building a great team.., making sure capital is available and properly spent.., knowing where to position against competition..., these things and more become essential to the ultimate goal of business success. A great business concept can not exist in a vacuum. It requires a sound, executable strategy and lots of serious hard work. Allow me to hear about your business goals and strategy at a high level. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship that helps you advance your goals. To your success and to making your 'big idea' a reality.  less
