It’s hard to believe we’re already saying goodbye to 2023! Our year has flown by inside the Introvert VA Club membership. We’ve released new trainings and community features, celebrated our 4 year anniversary 🎉, and supported our amazing unicorns in any way we could.
My team and I enjoy providing our members with the highest quality resources based on our experiences, changes in the online world, and frequently asked questions from our VAs. And when a member shares a win inside our community, we rejoice like it’s our own win.
So, let’s get to it! Here’s what’s new inside the Introvert VA Club in 2023.
NEW VIRTUAL ASSISTANT TRAININGS AND COURSES IN 2023
We released 6 new trainings in 2023:
THE INTROVERT’S GUIDE TO IMPOSTER SYNDROME – I was really excited to release this training. Imposter syndrome is really common and the crippling feeling can hold you back from achieving your dreams and goals. In this training, we look at imposter syndrome, how it affects introverts, and how to overcome it.
BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS FOR CANADIAN VAS – One of our Canadian VAs helped put this training together. I’m happy to have a training for our Canadian VAs now! This training covers the legal details so you can confidently register your business.
HOW TO REDIRECT A DOMAIN NAME – Redirecting a domain name can come in handy for a few different reasons. In this Quick Win, we share exactly what to do.
AUTOMATE YOUR BUSINESS TASKS WITH ZAPIER – I’m all about automation! If you can automate any part of your business, do it! It will save you time and energy! In this training, we show you how to use an online tool called Zapier to automate your business tasks.
For example: “When my client emails me in Gmail, add a task in Asana.” ✨
CHATGPT FOR VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS – I’m also really excited about this course! AI was a big topic in 2023, and we wanted to show VAs how to utilize it for their business. AI doesn’t have to be the enemy! It can be a tool to help you run your business more smoothly. In this training, we share prompts you can use to save time and energy in your business.
CREATE + TRACK AFFILIATE LINKS WITH PRETTY LINKS – Pretty Links is a must-have for anyone doing affiliate marketing. It’s a WordPress plugin that shortens links to make them easier to remember and share. It also makes updating affiliate links easier. (In January 2024, I’ll also be sharing the affiliate spreadsheet I use to keep track of affiliate links and info.🙌)
Tech is constantly changing, and we do our best to keep our courses up-to-date and accurate.
DROPBOXSIGN – HelloSign, the software I recommend for sending contracts, was recently purchased by Dropbox. Along with the name change was an interface change, so the training was updated to reflect those changes.
MAKING THE CLUBHOUSE MORE INCLUSIVE
VIDEO PLAYBACK SPEED – We updated our video players so videos can be played at a faster or slower speed. That way, members can choose according to their preferences or needs.
PRONOUNS – We added a new feature that allows members to add their pronouns to their community profile. (Our forum is inside the membership platform, not Facebook, so we can personalize our member experience more.) The pronouns appear under a member’s profile like this:
CELEBRATING OUR 4 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
On April 24th, we celebrated our 4 year anniversary with our members. We had an introvert-friendly party on Voxer, where we had a scavenger hunt for prizes, raffled off some more prizes (some donated by our amazing VAs), and gave the annual Sparkly Unicorn Award to one of our lovely unicorns.🥳 We always have so much fun at these parties!
We shared 38 job opps from business owners looking to hire VAs. These job announcements come from our Hire a VA Service and are only available to IVC members. This is where a lot of our members find their first clients! We 💗 helping our members find clients!
