    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. I enjoy strategic marketing, creating and implementing marketing and PR plans as well as utilizing social media and other strategies and tactics that are new to online marketing. I also have also designed and implemented Facebook promotions, Kickstarter campaigns and I have directed online and offline campaigns of all sizes and scope including utilization of Google Shopping and Adwords. I don't do a lot of SEO unless it is specific to YouTube as this is typically a task companies can outsource more cost effectively. I have also written high impact marketing plans, press releases, media alerts and worked with celebrities to scope out celebrity endorsements and their utilization on global launches.. Lastly, I have also done a lot of work recently in overall website content strategy and marketing and website communications and copywriting. This is often the place to start before we build a campaign together. I would say I specialize in High Tech, Fashion, Entertainment, but have worked on retail, SAAS, new product launches and many other categories too. 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, 2013. I look forward to working with you.  less

    Green Sheep is a kick-ass graphic design, marketing, and startup consulting group. Our two-person team lives for designing logos, branding materials, presentations, websites, and all sorts of graphics for a diversity of clients. What makes us unique is the insight we've gained from being entrepreneurs ourselves. I think we approach branding and the visual side of business with a different perspective than most designers. We are very detail and deadline-oriented, and we make sure to our clients can rely on us. Also, you'll also have both of us at your disposal, and two brains are better than one, right? We have a particular affinity for startup clients. We know what it takes to start a business (as I said, the fire of entrepreneurship burns bright in our hearts) and we can definitely help you figure things out. You can check out our resumes as well as some of the other work we've done here: http://greensheep.prosite.com  less

    While I do have a preferred tool-set, I can adapt to new environments fast, onsite or off. Team or Solo, SMB or Enterprise. I can accept surprises, enjoy exploring alternative solutions where required, accept new roles while retaining a calm - confident composure even under increasing pressure and I take pride in demonstrating this flexibility real-time! Primarily (by popular demand) a LAMP/Linux, Apache, PHP, MySql & HTML5 Developer and IT Business Consultant. I have also worked with, studied (still do) other programming languages, programming constructs and technologies. Well versed in many c-style languages including Perl, Python, Java and Ruby. Linux System Administrator. Senior Drupal Developer & Enthusiast, Acquia Drupal Business Partner, Drupal.org Contributor and Drupalcon Attendee. Expert Level Wordpress and Joomla Developer. Databases: DB2, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MSSQL. I love Git but I can also work with SVN for code management. IDEs: Dreamweaver, PhpStorm, Netbeans, Eclipse and Aptana Studio. Frameworks: CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Zend, Symfony, Aranea, .NET, Monorail and Django. OS Environment: Linux/Unix-like BSD Environment (Ubuntu for development server, some programming & BackTrack Linux to aid with security audits/pentesting). Windows 7 (for everyday office use, Graphics Design and applications like Adobe Creative Suite, general Word Processing, Sketching, Wire-framing, Quality Assurance Processes etc). I'm an avid Information Technology & Social Media Enthusiast, Web Developer and Consultant. By no means am I a jack of all trades, the reason for this skill-set is simple: I enjoy developing successful business models for applications/websites, coding them, writing the content for them and promoting them with SEO and Social Media Marketing (both of which require my strong analytical and writing skills and staying up-to-date with the latest trends). And as a Consultant and Developer there are plenty of times that I stray from this skill set, when opportunity comes knocking, to that of a Full Stack Engineer. Follow and study Google algorithm changes (ex. Hummingbird, Panda, Penguin) and other Search Engine Trends. As a consultant I base my evaluation of a site on a number of major factors (in no specific order): Code, Domain, Page level, Site level, Back-links, User Interaction, Google's own Algorithm Rules, Social, Brand, Onsite Content, Off-site Spam. I have evaluated and optimized sites that were "optimized perfectly" before an update was pushed and suddenly dropped by a couple of pages! Or were penalized for malpractices. There are other search engines out there and I'm an expert on the topic, but if it's good enough for the big G, its good enough for the rest of them. I've been working freelance for 6 years, started of part-time and then realized that I had a loyal client base that appreciated my work, the potential & drive to succeed in an ever-adapting, highly competitive industry and was earning enough to make the transition to a full-time freelancer. I started my career in the customer service field and still enjoy helping customers, building rapport with them and even selling meaningful, truly innovative products. This particular skill instills a sense of security in the minds of the people I work with. For me (and this may sound generic) real-time, concise communication and reporting is key and never goes unnoticed no matter what the task may be. I am also the co-founder of a small business, where we help business of all sizes embrace the latest technology trends, increase revenue, market their products/services to a wider audience (to put it simply) and manage their infrastructure. This allows me to have my own office, all the latest hardware and software and the peace of mind required to meet expectations, adhere to deadlines and generally be more productive. I would like to add (as a matter of fact) that I am an overseas Anglo/Brit living in Pakistan (For obvious reasons, lower cost of living, the same technology we have in developed Countries, High Percentage of IT Professionals etc). My native Language is English. *Note: I'm a professional who has been in the business for years, can provide solid references, timely - accurate reports, deliver solid results, honor commitments and will never fall for exploitation which is becoming all to common in the freelancing business. There are plenty of entry-level individuals out there that still need to prove themselves and will take care of underpaid-poorly planned jobs for you. Not Me, I know what my work is worth. I think I've made my point.  less

    After years of intense, satisfying and fulfilling "heads down" activity building businesses, I made a quantum shift leap into capital markets and began evaluating technology companies for potential investment as a Business Analyst. While I continue to work in the capital markets community, my time and focus is now on maintaining inertia and bringing home 2 exits. The result, now with more time on my hands than should be the case..., and with a ton of pent up energy to spare..., I'm embarking on a unique path, doing what I truly love to do..., Business advisory and assistance across multiple disciplines, for companies that can use my interim expertise & help. Over a span of 30 years I've built businesses from the ground up. I've developed Business Plans, Strategic Plans and top management teams. I've taken lead and/or collaborated in building strong businesses that succeed in their goals. I've been instrumental in spinning up new divisions to deliver new products or services within existing organizations. I've helped companies position & re-position to hit the street and raise capital as well as advance their business charter. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take concepts and get them documented for dissemination and sharing. Then i can act as an instrumental member to execute on those plans and strategies. I'm skilled in business language and messaging. Whether Business Operations, Sales, Marketing or Finance. I can prepare descriptive and compelling written narratives. From Executive Summaries to Investment Briefs, or detailed business proposals, I can deliver documents that inform, persuade, and deliver salient messaging. A serious entrepreneur all my professional life, I take new challenges and turn them into demonstrable successes. The passion I bring to these efforts never wanes until success is achieved. It's my DNA..., it's my passion.  less

    Want someone with a college education and the experience to back it up? I am not a cheap worker, because I provide quality services. However, I do provide quality services at reasonable rates. If you want your product to reflect quality, you hire me. Believe me, people will notice the difference between substandard results and the results that I provide for you. In today's age and economy, your business cannot afford the consequences of substandard work. I am a professional writer, and I have a wide variety of experience in many different writing styles and topics. With 2000+ articles completed to clients' satisfaction, I will ensure that your project gets the attention, quality, and efficiency that it deserves. If I can't write it, then you don't need it. If you are not satisfied, I am not satisfied, and I will continue to work until your expectations are met. Article rates are generally as follows: * Project Management for Article Distribution, Repacking, Repurposing, and Editorial Duties (Contact me here to make arrangements of hiring under my agency platform) * General Articles - $10-50 hourly rates, $10-50 fixed rate per article of typically 500 words. (For Ezines and other article publishing platforms) * Technical Works - $15-100 hourly rates, $10-100 fixed rate per article of typically 500 words. (For eBooks, white-papers, specifications, consumer electronics, technology, documentation, APA, health, fitness, transportation, web technologies, proposals, resume enhancement) * Copy Writing - $15-100 hourly, $10-100 fixed rate per article of typically 500 words. (Web content, eBooks, consumer electronics, how-to's, guides, web technologies, promotion) Kindly do not ask me to invest my time into your product if you are not willing to invest in your product in a timely fashion at reasonable rates. If you want my opinions, advice, or consultation, that is okay too. I provide consultations at reasonable rates as well. If you need a consultation, you can be sure that I will thoroughly inspect every relative aspect of your business and advise the best practices to preserve its current structure with enhanced results in most search engines. If you need a new system, I can aid with that as well. Consultation and SEO rates are as follows: * Reports and Analysis - $15-70 hourly rates, $10-50 per 500 words (Website Analysis, SEO Analysis, Keyword Research, , * Skype Chat Consultation - $15-70 hourly rates, $30 initiation fee, for at least one-hour; rates vary. If I applied to your job, it is because I know I can do it. I will not apply to your job if I hold any reservations about my ability to complete your work. If I feel that I may lack particular experience or a skill, I will be upfront with this information. My time is valuable, and so is yours. I will not waste my applications and time or your time applying to jobs that I do not have time for or the ability to complete. If you have a job offer for me, and my profile does not reflect the complete set of skills you need for the project, I am willing to learn or strengthen my current knowledge, and I have a steep learning curve capacity. Understandably, some clients hold reservations about people's ability to complete the job with quality results, but please, do not ask me to jump through hoops taking away a whole work day trying to prove to you that I can do the job. Especially if you do not have a strong intention of hiring me. It takes away time and time equals money. It also takes away time and work from any other possible clients I may be assisting. I work for a living with passion, determination, and discipline, but I will not kill myself working. I do not appreciate investing a lot of my time for what is essentially a goose egg. If I have never worked with you before, and you offer me a fixed price job, at least 50 percent upfront is required until we have established history together; . If it is a small project with a small budget, 100 percent upfront is required. Clients who provide an upfront payment for fixed price projects will receive priority. Thank you for viewing my oDesk profile.  less
