Selling to consumers through the online stores I have become a skilled networker and an avid Social Media Marketer and enthusiast.

MerChans is basically on hiatus since 2010, now I am doing freelance work within web development, graphics, marketing, administration and various other things people ask me for.
I also run one blog about blogging, check out www.weblogbetter.com.

MARKETING & SALES
MY FREELANCING BACKGROUND
Since June 2015 I have been doing various freelance gigs as a side business to my regular jobs, I am doing various web development jobs, graphics, translations and gigs related to social media. I am happy to say after finishing my day job and the kids are asleep I am very busy in the late evening and night working for my clients.
It took a lot of time and hard work to achieve the stable flow of new incoming work from old and new clients, but finally I am there!
MY MISSION STATEMENT
To become the client’s go-to-freelancer for all things online.
To build long-term and mutually beneficial relationships.
TOP SIX FIELDS OF EXPERTISE
01 Content Management Systems
I am very familiar with all the major content management systems, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal etc. To reach my current level of knowledge has taken me a lot of time, energy and determination. I love creating themes and plugins from scratch or customizing already existing ones.
02 Front-end Design
As a front-end developer my job is to turn designs into reality via code. To really understand front-end design is easier said than done as coding and aesthetic design require some quite different skill sets, however through the years I am proud to say I have developed a good sense of both skills.
After years of experience running my own online stores I am truly your go-to-guy for anything e-commerce. I am super familiar with all the major platforms for creating online stores as well as most online payment solutions. Thanks to my knowledge in (online) marketing I also know how to get people to buy your stuff.
04 Graphic Design
The best way to communicate your message is through graphics. I truly enjoy when my clients give me creative freedom to make their new graphic profiles. Combining colours, images, words and fonts to create a package of eye-candy that will help a business sell more is one of the things I enjoy the most as a freelancing designer.
05 Html & Css
Content management systems like WordPress are good and suitable for most types of websites. But to really be able to make the site look the way you (and the client) want you still need to know HTML and CSS. I made my first HTML based site 19 years ago and haven’t stopped developing since then.
06 MySql & Php
The backbone of every content management system, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or some e-commerce platform like OpenCart, is the SQL database. I am very familiar with the database structure and able to edit the database directly if needed to for example fix some errors that occured on the website.
