I just took my Odesk SEO test and scored in the 94th percentile, without studying! After endless streams of temp jobs offering permanent work only to fall through or internships offering paid work at the end of a certain amount of time I'm frustrated and giving up on the Southern California job market for internet marketing professionals.
As a former Odesk employer and business owner I understand how difficult it is to find quality people to perform work that does not require a full time paid position. I also understand the need for quality work at an affordable price.
I was born in, live in and work in the United States. I'll only apply to jobs where I know I can complete all of the work in a quality fashion, in a timely manner. Once hired I will give you my personal cell phone number and will make my best effort to answer all calls live, if not, all calls will be returned within one hour.
One may ask why I am willing to work for so little. Well, after the endless temp and intern jobs it's really not a pay cut. Not to mention that Odesk allows me to coordinate multiple jobs and manage my time to be effective as possible.
Below is a sample SEO/SEM/SMM marketing plan I recently developed for one of my clients. I completed all tasks on-time, as assigned resulting in: consistent top three Adwords placement while cutting budget, Google organic and Google places search results within 30 days and a committed RELEVANT Facebook following.
