I'm getting a lot busier these days and am looking for some good freelance help in the following areas:
(UPDATE: Please, if you do not specialize in the following areas, do not respond. This is not an open invitation for anyone related to marketing to send me their information!)
1. Qualitative researcher with a good strategic mind. Better yet, a brand strategy consultant who does his/her own research. (US-based) I am looking for someone trained in qualitative research, interviewing, moderation... a big plus would be ethnography.
2. Project manager (creative): This person should have an agency background as an AE or account supervisor, be excruciatingly organized, proactive, and have great writing skills and client-interaction skills. (US-based) This is a more junior level position; it doesn't pay a whole lot.
3. Web designer (can be anywhere in the world). You would not believe the pain and agony I've gone through to find a good web designer... someone who not only does great work, but is also not a flake, doesn't cancel in mid-project, and doesn't miss deadlines. There are a million web designers in this world; please don't respond unless you have personally designed some really crisp national-brand sites and you understand usability. Flash programming a plus. You should have less than 5 people in your company.
You can send resumes and portfolio samples (for #3) to me at [email protected] I will call you if I'm interested; please don't call or email me after you've sent in your qualifications. If you're a good enough marketer, your qualifications will sell you. Thanks!
UPDATE: Also, I really need an Excel guru... someone to download quantitative survey results and built a ton of charts.
