Service Description

What can I do for you?

I've had an entrepreneurial career and for the last 10 years I've been starting companies for myself and other people. So I understand what startups and SME's need - how difficult it is often to specify exactly what it is you want and how important it is that you out perform.

I'm really good helping people build authentic communities. With a varied interests in science, engineering, history, culture and sports I can get up to speed very quickly with your brand, your products and most importantly with what is going to make your target audience click and connect with you (or the other way round!)

Key strengths are:

-Twitter
-Facebook
-Linkedin

I've developed approaches for my own businesses that produce high quality audiences - no 'spam' - that are really engaged and respond well to the brand. I'll use the same for you.

What I can do

- play with a WordPress site and optimize using plugins and make it more SMM friendly
- Ride Twitter, Facebook etc using a variety of 3rd party apps to give great results
- have great social engagement with US, UK and Australians (+more)
- Write pretty good content on most things
- Crunch and analyse data
- Play with Google Analytics
- Do some mean Adwords campaigns
- do email marketing with vertical response and mailchimp


What I can't do

- code
- sell products that don't have a connection to the audience
- make things look beautiful. i can do that with words - but aesthetics aren't my strong point
