Internship and Job vacancies

    Being a freelancer without employees can be quite busy and that is why I am looking for help from interns, other freelancers or part-time employees for the following 3 activities:

    Interns or freelancers for Online (Yacht) Marketing

    Of course, my clients come first and it will always remain that way. I manage WordPress websites and online marketing for a number of small and medium-sized businesses and increasingly for sailing and motor yachts with the aim of selling or renting them out. My clients come from different countries in Europe. This is the core of my business, so that is my focus. I want to remain responsible for this complex part, because it is the “core” of my company. However, there are many routine website management and online marketing tasks that I could use help with. That’s why I’m looking for someone who would enjoy learning the ins and outs of online marketing and yacht marketing. I genuinely enjoy coaching young, ambitious people and seeing them develop, learn new skills and push their boundaries.

    I have also enjoyed working with a Dutch graphic designer (Marcia) for a long time and if it were up to me, it will always remain that way, but she mainly speaks Dutch and not Italian, for example, and therefore cannot work for Italian clients. That is why I am looking for collaboration with native speakers in various European countries who work as a graphic designer, PPC expert, social media manager, copywriter or photographer. There is especially synergy if we can pass on customers to each other, so that is why I look for people who are super strong in their own field, but are slightly less interested in the technical side, such as WordPress development, e-commerce or search engine optimization or yacht marketing because that’s what I’m good at.

    Interns or freelancers or part-time employee for bookkeeping and back-office

    Personally this is not my favorite part, but unfortunately it is mandatory:-) Administration. Of course, I have an Italian accountant for this and I use good accounting software (flexsuit.it), but I still have to submit and arrange a lot of things and that really costs me a lot of time, because my Italian is not perfect and the Italian tax authorities do not translate anything into English. Outsourcing everything to an accountant is not possible or unaffordable. So what I am looking for is an Italian student or someone who has just graduated from training as an accountant or in economics, who can help me, for example, 2 or 4 times a month at the office in Castano Primo (MI) or via video calling. Besides taxes, I also have a long checklist of routine back-office tasks that need to be taken care of every week.

    Moreover, I could use help to translate and maintain my extensive websites www.elmarteeuwen.it and www.elmarteeuwen.com in different languages in addition to Dutch or English, because I can write in those languages myself. So I would like to get in touch with someone who, in addition, is also fluent and can write flawlessly in Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, etc. to also help me with translations.

    Sales

    I’m actually happy if I can keep up with the above, in addition to my private life, but you can imagine that I just lack the time for my own sales activities. That is why, I am looking for a young, ambitious sales-tiger who is not afraid to plan a free and non-binding appointment with potential clients via LinkedIn, e-mail, telephone, flyers, visits to events, etc. Especially in the beginning, I will go along to give the actual sales presentation to the prospect, but I will pay a good commission if it results in a paid assignment. The target group consists of both companies and boat owners (for sale or charter) throughout Europe. After a training period, the work can take place remotely. For me it is only about the result.
