Hosea Baker - Creative Problem Solver
Assess, Design, Build & Repeat. Data rules everything around me. UX research and design, analytics, SEO, and frontend development are my strong suits. Based out of Dallas, TX
For every 15 minutes
Two decades worth of experience designing, building, and marketing online. I've helped individual artists, professional models, small to medium-sized businesses, startups, and non-profits improve their visibility, raise their conversion rates, and grow their online business. Shifting from design to development, my creative thinking leads to efficient solutions. I can speak programmer and creative, but my years of experience allow me to effectively communicate and translate to the proper audience.

After looking for an alternative to Joomla, I discovered WordPress over a decade ago and never turned back. WordPress offered my clients the best admin UI on the market, and the development community is one of the largest and most active online. I can help you install WordPress, a theme or plugin, create a custom theme, add or modify functionality, move your WordPress site, or troubleshoot problems with your existing installation.

I have been using Google Analytics since Google acquired Urchin and rebranded it as GA, and more recently have completed Google's Analytics Academy training. Whether you are looking for someone to help you learn how to perform a basic installation, configure Google Analytics to work with Google Tag Manager, point you to where you can find the stats that you are looking for, or configure a more advanced installation with goal/event/conversion tracking, I can assist you.
Google tag manager
- 4 years experience
Google Tag Manager is one of my favorite free tools that Google provides to webmasters, marketers, and data scientists. Using it since it was first introduced, I now implement it on every site I create, whether for my clients or for myself. If you need someone to assist you with installing Tag Manager, configuring Google Analytics to work with Tag Manager, send goal/event tracking and conversions from Tag Manager to Google Analytics or any other third party, install Facebook Pixel using Tag Manager, or even use Tag Manager to inject JS to modify your web pages, I can help! Message me with what you're looking to do and I'll promptly reply.

A scientist at heart, my love for data drives my passion for analytics, SEO, and growth hacking. I start with a hypothesis, then by establishing a goal, designing testable alternatives and implementing multivariate testing, I identify the most effective, efficient ways to grow a business.

Developing websites since the late 90's, I have had the pleasure (and pain) of following the evolution of web languages. I've gone from table-based layouts using marquee and blink tags, to responsive layouts utilizing media queries and rapid-development frameworks like Foundation or Bootstrap - from HotDog HTML editor to Sublime Text. HTML and CSS represent my oldest and most advanced strengths, and yet I continue to research, experiment, and learn.

Psychology has long been a favorite subject of mine. Why we like what we like, why we do what we do, we have less control over this than we're comfortable believing. But knowing this has helped me tremendously, as I attempt to design and build things for others. While I like to think that I am a talented designer with only great ideas, the truth is it is impossible to predict exactly how the majority of a product's users will use it, and what they think about it. This is where testing and data come to the rescue and provide invaluable insight.

Over 20 years ago, Photoshop was one of the first programs I picked up. I had fun with it first, photoshopping my friends faces into awkward scenarios. But soon I was learning how to mask, use blend modes, touch up photos, and overuse grunge effects. I use Photoshop on a daily basis, creating and modifying both web and print designs. My experience is in creating social media graphics, print advertisements, brochures, web designs, and touching up, manipulating, and modifying digital photos. If I could only have a single application on my computer, it would be Photoshop.

With more than a decade of experience configuring and managing Unix servers, I have recently (last couple years) turned to DigitalOcean for my hosting needs. They offer a great product, service, and hardware, and I've found they are currently the best suited for the majority of my clients' needs. I'd love to apply my knowledge to your DigitalOcean server setup and management needs!

I have designed and developed HTML emails for newsletters, marketing campaigns, transactional emails, as well as email signatures. Some of the newsletter/email platforms I have developed for are MailChimp, Constant Contact, and Emma. Depending on the situational needs, my email designs range from fixed-width to fluid, and feature responsive images to improve the mobile UX. If you already know what you want and simply need the layout developed for the most cross-platform performance possible, send me a message and I'll get started developing it!

My experience ranges from installing, configuring, and troubleshooting SSL certificates from free to wildcard, multi-domain, and extended validation. I have worked with digital certificate providers Comodo, DigiCert, Let's Encrypt, GeoTrust, RapidSSL, and Verisign. Google has already announced they give search ranking preferences to secured sites, and shortly Chrome will be identifying HTTP sites as "non-secure". Getting your site moved over to HTTPS should be a priority for everyone, at this point.

Hosea helped me out by walking me through the process of setting up Google Tag Manager to track file downloads and video views on a site. He made a complicated process very clear and I was able to complete the bulk of it on my own after he explained the process and walked me through one. I would definitely contact Hosea again in the future!
