First step…Hire a virtual assistant

I recently tailored my market to focus primarily on those in fashion and entertainment. I can say that really determining a solid niche has allowed for my business to gain more recognition.

Google has a service where alerts can be sent to your email tailored to specific topics. Currently I have an alert set up to send me new articles that discuss anything to do with “virtual assistant”. I recently came across an article focusing on Jellaine Ross, designer of Cherry Blossom, a fashion and beauty brand based in Australia. Her business has gained a lot of attention. Her products have been featured in the Oscars and Golden Globe swag bags as well as sold online. Jellaine’s business is currently making upwards of $3 million a year!

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……

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!
