My focus is your success

Getting ready to gear up for a networking event in two weeks and I am in the mood for some new advertising material. Of course I could make flyers on my own which would be much more cost effective, but I am looking for more so I did some research and discovered moo.com, a luxury business provider that specializes in very trendy business cards, postcards, notecards that can be designed and used for your business. I am sure there are others out there in the same boat. Even I as a virtual assistant need to continuously find ways to get the client’s attention. How can I best attract my audience and educate them on the virtual assistant industry all at the same time. I think I found my answer with Moo!

With any business it is important to network. The network almost goes hand in hand with business. Since starting my Virtual Assistant business on the side I have tried to find ways outside of the customary options to networking. Social media has been a go to option as well as posing daily thoughts and questions on my various pages.

In the next few weeks I will be gearing up for the Minority Business Expo. I look forward to getting the opportunity to have some one on one conversations with various business owners (and distribute my new business cards of course!). These last few months have been about educating those who I come in contact with about the use of a virtual assistant as well as the actually role of this position and the overall industry. I have received nothing but positive responses.

Now it is time to get the marketing materials in order……

Today I decided to change the along behind this blog and give a more “day in the life” approach to working as a Virtual Assistant as my “side hustle.”

Today I joined Ty-Juana Flores of Style Your Curves for a Sip and Swap event in conjunction with Dress for Success. I of course was honored to have Ms. Flores ask me to volunteer and be apart of a great cause.

Today’s Sip and Swap consisted of great people, great location( Scholars Boston) great conversation and plenty of clothes!

In the midst of the event I engaged in great networking conversations. This of course can lead to great business opportunities!!! The social media aspect was very present with the use of hashtags and tagging of photos to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Todays hashtag was #sycswap. This became the movement for the entire evening. Attendees immediately began taking photos, tagging people and of course including the hashtags. As someone very in tune with the social media world I immediately began doing my part. The Instagram and Facebook likes came through and let’s not forget those tweets!

From a business point of view I engaged in great conversation with some amazing people. It is always important to remember there is power in words. You never know what will come next.

#vatipoftheday: consider creating a hashtag for your next business event or create a following for your social media presence
