Social Networking – How’s Your Business Looking Online? 1

Posted on March 21, 2014 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Most of us are aware of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and the rest, but did you know that there are sites for online networking for businesses too? Are you active on sites such as LinkedIn?

When a potential client ‘Googles’ your name, often the results at the top of the page will return profiles from business and social networking web sites as the search engines love their continually updated ‘fresh’ content. So how is your online profile looking?

If you haven’t got around to setting up your profiles, or have done that but have not used the sites for networking or really showcasing your area of expertise, help is at hand.

At My Virtual Assistant, we provide a Business Social Networking service that includes the full set up of your profiles showcasing you and your area of expertise on all the major business networking platforms. We will also research which ‘groups’ on these platforms you should belong to and join them on your behalf. Once set up we can manage the accounts for you, set up your own groups, respond to links requests – and make them for you, answer email, etc.

Making Effective Use of Your Daily Commute 0

Posted on March 19, 2014 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Do you find that when you have a little ‘head space’ whilst driving or traveling on trains or planes you suddenly feel inspired? The idea for that article suddenly pops into your head or you feel stimulated enough to put together that email newsletter you’ve been meaning to send out?

Well there’s not much you can do to put pen to paper while you are driving or crammed into the 07:45 to Waterloo, so what can you do?

Most mobile phones these days have a recording facility so why not record what you want to say, just as you would have done years ago into a Dictaphone. You won’t even feel like an idiot chatting away to yourself as people will just assume you are on a call on your mobile telephone.

You can then send the recorded file to your virtual assistant who can transcribe it into your article, newsletter or even your next training course or ebook. Imagine how much you could achieve on your next journey.

Thinking Big – Plan To Expand When Starting Your Small Business 0

Posted on March 14, 2014 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

When you are in the setting up stages of your business, don’t forget to set everything up as though you were a large company. For example, set up various email address for different uses and don’t have all email coming to one address. You can have ‘yourname’, ‘enquiries’, ‘customer service’, ‘quotations’, etc. In the short term you can collect them all by diverting the emails to one central address, but later on when you want to set up an auto responder for a particular query, or send the handling of certain enquiries to your VA or employee, you will have already segregated the emails.

Effective Diary Management for A Less Stressful Life! 0

Posted on March 07, 2014 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Do you ever forget birthdays or anniversaries or leave it far too late to purchase an appropriate gift? Ever miss the school play or sports day because you’ve double booked it with a work event you can’t extricate yourself from so late in the day. Do you find yourself dashing from one end of town to the other to get to your next appointment, only to charge back to where you started from to get to the next one?

Do you think you might need to review how you handle your diary?

Do away with multiple calendars and dairies and use one diary for everything including business and personal appointments, birthdays, etc. An electronic diary works best because your virtual assistant can also update it so it is always current. You can access an electronic diary with any computer or if you are out and about using your mobile phone.

Why not give your virtual assistant instructions to alert you of any upcoming birthdays or anniversaries so you have plenty of time to find an appropriate gift, or better still, let your virtual assistant research and purchase the perfect gift on your behalf and have it wrapped and delivered for you. Why not ask them to schedule your appointments for you so they can be effectively managed to save you time, stress and travel costs. While they are managing your diary, why not also ask you VA to arrange all the associated travel arrangements and hotel and restaurant bookings?

Now wouldn’t that make you feel a little less stressed and a lot more organised?

Blogging – Are Your Talking to Your Audience? 0

Posted on March 29, 2013 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Blogging is a great way to position yourself as an expert in your field and regularly keep in touch with your readers, whilst building an interactive relationship with them?

Have you considered blogging?

Blogs are less formal than web sites allowing you to inject your own personality into the content. The snippets of information that you post are generally shorter than articles allowing you to post regular short pieces and links to other information your readers may find useful.

And the best news? As the content is regularly updated and ‘fresh’, search engines LOVE blogs. If you want to be found in the top of the search engines, it’s the quickest, easiest and most cost effective way to get there.

At My Virtual Assistant, we provide a Blog Set Up and Management service that includes the full technical set up of your blog. We also design and brand the layout of your blog so that it is in line with your current company logo, colours and image. Once set up you can add your own content or pass that task over to us along with the management of reader comments and subscribers.
