Service Description

Proofreader | Copy Editor | Internet Research | Report Writing | Social Media Profile Management Services | Virtual Assistant Services

Bachelor Of Arts, Law and Political Science, Stellenbosch University, Stellenbosch, South Africa

Diploma in Buddhist Studies, International Theravada Buddhist Missionary University, Yangon, Myanmar



I provide Virtual Assistant services to clients online by performing time-consuming, yet important tasks.

These range from proofreading and copy-editing in English and Afrikaans, typesetting in Adobe InDesign, picture and permissions research, picture resizing and optimization in Adobe Photoshop CS2.

I also do online research in the relevantly identified client niche/industry and write reports and proposals based on that research.

I help establish, setup, configure and maintain profiles for clients on relevant social networking sites (Facebook Pages, Twitter, StumbleUpon, YouTube, delicious, Flickr etc.)

Updating content and profile statuses with relevant and targeted researched content (links to articles, blog posts, picture streams, videos etc.) within the client's industry.

Designing custom Twitter backgrounds, business cards, brochures, pamphlets and eBooks in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop.
