Lauryn is a “jack of all trades” virtual assistant who thrives on supporting entrepreneurs. Read why she started her business, what she loves about it, and what she struggles with.
Sending little gifts to clients for Christmas, birthdays, or to say “thank you for working with me” or “congratulations” is a great way to stand out as a virtual assistant. Not only is it a wonderful gesture that shows how much you appreciate your client’s business, it also shows how much you care about them as a person.
I created a list of fun gift suggestions for clients, no matter the reason, and all under $25. You’ll be scoring good karma points with these babies!
A lot of aspiring VA’s are paralyzed by the idea of setting up a website, and I don’t blame them. It can be a lot of work, especially if you’ve never done it before.
Luckily, you don’t need a website to get your VA business off the ground! There are other ways you can have an online presence without building a website.
You may have heard that cold emailing is a great way to get clients, and this is absolutely true.
But cold emailing just sounds so…impersonal. Pushy. Terrifying.
I get where you’re coming from! You’re basically walking up to someone and asking them to hire you, which feels vulnerable and scary. Luckily, it does get easier with practice, and there’s a way to do it that doesn’t feel so salesy and icky. Let me show you how!
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.
