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

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!

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.

I have found my niche

For anyone starting a Virtual Assistant business one of the more common questions is to discover your niche. Who will you market your  services to? Initially my focus was to market my services to small businesses and entrepreneurs. The interest has been steady. My main task has been to educate those interested on the role of a VA and what exactly can a virtual assistant do?

Several of the networking events and conversations I participated in consisted of those in the fashion industry as well as the entertainment industry. Then it happened…I found my niche! CMC Virtual Assistance will now cater it’s services to those in the fashion and entertainment industries. I have noticed an upcoming increase of online designers, stylist,etc who could greatly benefit from the use of a virtual assistant. I immediately became excited. I instantly went into a re-branding mode. New website layout, business cards, networking approach, new direction!

It’s true that you learn a lot along the way when starting business. The good, the bad, and the unsure.

Let the journey begin…again
