There are many things that are important when trying to become a successful virtual assistant. Today we will talk about all of those.
Experience is very important when being successful virtual assistant. However, not everyone an have experience, as you of course need to start somewhere.
In the beginning, you may need to offer some virtual assistant work at very low pay, or even for free. Experience is important, as to get the higher paying virtual assistant jobs, these website owners will want you to know what you are doing.
Let your experience be known, and when telling potential clients of yours about your services, let them know what you have done, and make a clear list of your achievements.
When you start to gain experience, make sure to ask your clients if they can give you a testimonial. Testimonials and references can help you secure future clients. Potential clients want to know if your past clients were happy with your services, and if they can read an honest testimonial then this can really help them make their decision. Positives testimonials are best of course.
As a virtual assistant, it would be hard to get your name out there if you never networked. Networking can help clients find you more easily. There are many ways that you can network, such as engaging with clients and others on social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, etc.). You can also create a blog, post on relevant forums, and so on.
A Professional Website
If you are an online freelancer (or any freelancer), then a professional website is important. The first thing that most clients do is look you up, and if they have nothing to look up about you then they might not choose you. It’s really just that simple.
You can create a website yourself, or hire someone else to create it. List your services, contact information, testimonials, past clients (if you are allowed to do so), your portfolio, and information about yourself. You can include pricing as well, or you can ask that they e-mail you for further pricing for your services.
