Hire Elisha Tan

Hello there!

I’m Elisha and I believe that entrepreneurs have the ability, and hence responsibility, to make the world a better place. I’ve started a startup called Learnemy and my journey has been featured on a bunch of places. After 3 years, I failed (which has also been featured on a bunch of places).

I’m now looking to grow and contribute in an ambitious, high growth environment within the tech ecosystem.

I can help you with writing kick-ass content, building community and partnerships, and building simple web app prototypes with Ruby on Rails.

I’ve been told that I’m honest, have a can-do attitude and am a hustler, although I may come across as aggressive. You can see more about my experiences and skills below, or read my reviews on Linkedin.

You can reach me by clicking this link, or email elisha.tan@gmail.com. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Psst! I’ll write more articles on how I can help you. To receive them, please leave your email address below.

Content Marketing
I have a systematic approach to creating content. Using this format, I have created:

  • Articles with 27,000 organic views over a 4-year period
  • Ebook with 40,000 organic views over a 5-year period
  • Udemy course with 4500 enrollments over a 9-month period

Community Building 
My passion projects have put me in touch with talented startup and developer communities in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore. 
I’ve also grown a Linkedin community from 400 members to 2000 members within 4 months.

Developing Partnerships
Other than increasing the number of marketing partners all across Asia by 40% for Tech in Asia Tour, I’ve also started collaborations for Bootstrap Alley for Tech in Asia’s conferences.

Startup Analyst & Pitch Coach
During my term in Tech in Asia, I’ve seen close to 1000 startups in Asia, selected close to 400 startups for TiA’s activities and trained 35 startups in pitching in front of an audience.

Data Driven Marketing
I like numbers. I use basic SQL queries, Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Excel, and run t-tests to select the best marketing channel, content and UI for a product.

Search Engine Optimization
I select valuable keywords, create content around the keywords, and do both on and off site SEO.

Ruby on Rails (Basic) and CSS/HTML
I learned programming when I couldn’t find a tech co-founder. I’m able to create simple prototypes, conduct A/B testing and structure the site for SEO. I designed and coded for Learnemy.
