Krystel Leal, Digital Marketing Freelancer
In 2015, I was 24 years old, and I was living, studying, and working in Paris. Alone, I was already independent, and I already had everything that seemed to indicate that I had total control of my life. But no. I was coming home tired every day and wondering if adult life was really "just" that. I found some people having the best of their lives and doing what the work that they seem to like it, from places where they really wanted to be. I wanted to understand if it was possible for me too. And it was. It is.
In less than 15 months, I create my activity from scratch in the field of Communication, the area that I was studying at that time. I took advantage of my academic knowledge, added passion and interest in digital, and fed this combination with training and certifications. Five years after I started working like this, as a freelancer in digital marketing, I still love what I do: helping entrepreneurs and online projects to position themselves with clarity, intelligence, and relevance in digital.
In 2016, the year that I became a full-time freelancer in digital marketing, I also created the Nomadismo Digital Portugal project. This project allows me to help people that want to create a professional activity adapted to what they want to live.
Today I live in Palo Alto, California, in the center of Silicon Valley. I work entirely remotely for my clients around the world. Right now, I am taking several training courses in entrepreneurship and futurism.
I create websites, blogs, and online stores, adapted to the present and future of the project.
I create genuine content optimized to be found by the readers on Google at the right moment of their journey (SEO Optimization).
I manage and create strategic processes for entrepreneurs and content creators that are launching digital content such as courses, workshops, products, or online services.
I work on the SEO On-Page (sites and content) and Off-Page SEO strategies (link building and distribution of the content).
