You might be already actively looking for clients or just about to, but do you know exactly what to do when a potential client wants to work with you?
What steps will you take to decide whether they’re a good fit or not? What will you do when you decide to work together? What about your service? What are the steps you’ll take to complete it? Do you know what you’ll do when your project is complete or how you’ll get feedback on your service?
Your head might be spinning right now, but don’t panic! We’re going to work on figuring out these steps so you know exactly what you’ll be doing.
One of the biggest (if not THE biggest) challenges of being a VA is staying organized! When you’re juggling a bunch of clients and your own business, it’s easy to start losing track of things.
Luckily, I’ve learned plenty of tips and tricks over the years to keep things organized, and the internet is full of systems and programs to help keep your business running smoothly.
I wanted to share a few of my favorite tips and programs for organizing client tasks and making sure work gets done!
It’s easy to get overwhelmed as a virtual assistant when you’re juggling a bunch of clients and projects at once. Sometimes you have a to-do list a mile long and you don’t know how you’ll get to it all.
Not only that, you might have other responsibilities, like kids, which reduces your work hours. That means if you want to be productive and get things done you HAVE to be efficient.
You may have heard that every business needs an SOP. And yes, it’s true. But what exactly is an SOP and why do you need one?
SOP stands for Standard Operating Procedure and it’s an outline of the steps you take to execute re-occuring tasks in your business. To sum it up, it’s a checklist of tasks you do for your business.
I know, sounds pretty boring, huh? But don’t run off…trust me! You’re going to want to learn this. Why? Because an SOP will save you time, energy and money. Plus, as an added bonus, you’ll have a checklist of tasks you can delegate to a virtual assistant as your business grows.
Becoming a virtual assistant helped me to fulfill my work from home dreams. That's why I'm passionate about helping others do the same. In my free time you'll find me cuddling with my fur babies, watching funny movies, and scoping out new restaurants with my hubby.
