Time to listen….

When I initially started my VA business I thought providing a variety of services would be the key to attracting new clients and gaining experience. In the beginning I offered administrative, human resources, legal research and social media maintenance. I noticed that when I mentioned the services I provided social media maintenance most potential clients wanted to know more about that particular service. The more conversations I had about my business and the services I provided the more I noticed the interest in the social media maintenance with legal research as a close second. Then I started thinking…”Maybe I need to rethink my services” It is important to really have honest conversations with your clients to see what works and what may not be best for your business. Next time consider having a conversation with your clients. Consider creating a survey. You may be surprised by the results

It’s the weekend

Cheers to the weekend! What is it about a Friday that gets everyone to a point of relaxation and release. Why is it on a Friday that everyone now becomes laid back and full of cheer…It’s the weekend. This week has been a LOOOOONNNGGGG week. Work demands, upon more demands, upon more demands encompassed my entire week. Then came Friday…YES! It just seems like the entire airspace changes. Cheers to the freakin’ weekend.

Google calendar is a great tool that not only allows you to organize and color coat all your networking events, appointments and meetings, but for your potential clients and present clients you can share your events as well as turn your calendar into sub calendars and share those calendars with only those who are required to know.

There are several google applications on iPhone and Google calendar is also an app for Android users only.

Consider Google calendar and several of these other software tools for your business.

A small change goes a long way

Tonight I decided to check-in with my website. As we all know this is a world attached to social media and the online community. As any business owner knows it is important to have a user friendly site where one can maneuver through your site without major complications.

My focus was not so much emphasizing on the user content as it was the actually “look”. A small change to the font choice turned my overall presence into a site that now appears to be more professional and less child like. We all want to be taken seriously.

How often do you check in with your site?

Below is the before and after in the font change to my own site (CMC Virtual Assistance) Take note of the first impression you have once you see each font choice. Thoughts?

Time to brush up on those skills

In an age where the internet has been a way of life for business have you considered brushing up on those computer skills. It is not always about finding those most expensive top of the line service. Sometimes a simple online FREE course can do the trick. I recently came across Free Online Learning at GCF which provides online courses in Technology, reading and math.

The Technology section has several different computer courses available from Google Docs to Access to Microsoft Office. You have the ability to learn addition skills from the comfort of your own home. Why not take advantage. I’m currently reviewing Access right now!
