ARE YOU A STARTING VA AND NEED A WEBSITE?

As a starting Virtual Assistant you would like to be visible for new clients, mind you your first client (so excitingggg)! The best way to showcase your skills and style of work is with a portfolio on a website. I understand not every starting VA has the tech skills to set up their own website. With that in mind I’m developing a Do It Yourself website package for a starting VA. The only thing you need to do is fill it with your own content like text, your logo and images. No fuss with al the technical settings, it’s already done for you and already mobile friendly.

 

Do i really need a website?

A website will be a bit of an investment so you’re probably wondering if you need to spend money on this. You could start with just setting up some social media sites, like a LinkedIn profile or Facebook business page. Definitely get those, they’re free to sign up for and will help you interact and target possible new clients. But if you want to step up your game and come across as a professional I would advise you on getting a website. A website can generate traffic from search engines like Google etc. You can add traffic to your website by setting up a blogpage, because search engines love blog pages. And this will help your rank in Google to go up and reach more people trying those search engines.

the launch!

After reading this you probably think you DO need a website. The easy DIY website will become available soon, and it will come with a handy instruction manual. Like I said I’m currently busy with developing the Do It Yourself website package and hoping to lauch it coming August. Please subsribe to the list in the sidebar to receive updates on the progress of the development.

 

 

WORKING AS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

WORKING AS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

WORKING AS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

Working as a virtual assistant can’t be any more actual and visible during the corona virus. When I told people before about my proffesion I usually got blank stares a lot, followed by… virtual assistant what’s that?! But since a couple of weeks no explanation needed, which is nice and will be a great boost for the virtual assistant community!

the virtual community

And a community we are, there are so many different people working in the industry these days. It can be very convenient in combining a family while working as a virtual assistant. Especially when the kids are young and aren’t into school yet. Remote working has a lot of benefits, it also gives a lot of freedom and location indepency if you like that lifesyle.

DIGITAL NOMAD LIFESTYLE

Speaking for myself I like to travel a lot and being stuck in an office job gives you limited oppertunities. For instance, I will be moving to Panama to get even more tax benefits out of my virtual assistant lifestyle. Which now is postponed to next year due to the current situation, but the plan is still on! If you’re interested in my adventures please take a look at my other website Nomad in Panama here.

LIVE LIFE ON YOUR OWN TERMS!

In short being a virtual assistant gives you the oppertunity to live your life on your own terms. Not depending on a location, a boss or stuck in a career you don’t like for the rest of your working life.

On this blog I will be writing articles about working as a virtual assistants. As well as hoping to answer questions like what it is virtual assistants do, and can do for clients, who I like to work with etc. Like I said the concept of working remote has gotten much more famous over the past couple of weeks, that will make my job writing about it so much easier!
