Announcement of New Services

January 24, 2008

I am pleased to announce an addition to our virtual assistant team. Our newest member will handle our ACT! Database projects. Our team now consists of four virtual assistants with skills in various areas. They specialize in bookkeeping, transcription services, Real Estate Virtual Assistant services, website and graphic design, and now ACT! Database. Because of their skills, I am able to offer small business owners most of the services they need to operate and develop their businesses. In addition, these owners do not have to shop around for the above-mentioned services, because we are a “one-stop shop.”

My mission is to provide our clients with the type of value-added service they can trust to be exactly what they desired plus more.

Every Small Advertising Agency Needs One

January 10, 2008

Chances are if you are a small advertising agency (1-4 employees) you do not have enough time to create your ads. Generally, small business owners are faced with daily mundane, administrative tasks, which are very time consuming. With the time you have left, you barely have enough time to create your ads. This is where a Virtual Assistant comes in. If you use the services of a Virtual Assistant, you will gain valuable time. With this extra time, you can concentrate on creating your ads.

A Virtual Assistant can take care of your bookkeeping, schedule appointments, return phone calls, answer your phone calls, manage your e-mails, make reservations, type and mail your correspondences, create and manage your database, update your website, etc. These are just a few examples of what a Virtual Assistant can do for you.

As a small business owner myself, I am aware of how much energy and time are spent on daily administrative tasks. If you use my services, I can assist you with creating your ads, since I have a background in acting and an education in marketing, in addition to providing you with administrative assistance.

Every small advertising agency needs a Virtual Assistant. Outsource your administrative tasks to a Virtual Assistant so you can focus on creating your ads, as well as gain new accounts.

Virtual Assistant Services

December 11, 2007

Due to the economy, I have decided to reduce my fees by $5.00 per hour on all of my virtual assistant services. In order to continue to provide my clients with value-added services, I feel reducing my rates at this time is necessary.

If you are a small business owner, this is the perfect time to take advantage of my services. Don’t handle all of those administrative tasks by yourself. As a small business owner myself, I am aware of how time-consuming those tasks can be. Call me today toll free at 866-651-3073 to discuss how I can best assist you.

Virtual Assistant Services for Small Advertising Agencies

October 5, 2007

If you are an owner of a small ad agency, you should consider establishing a business relationship with a Virtual Assistant (VA), especially if you have a small budget. Owners of advertising agencies and owners of virtual assistant businesses are similar; therefore, a Virtual Assistant understands and can anticipate your business needs. We both submit bids. An agency and a VA both respond to RFPs from potential clients. An agency’s and a Virtual Assistant’s services are billed hourly and generally are temporary. When a projected is completed, the job is over. We both work ourselves right out of a job. Ad agencies and VA businesses generally are small. According to U. S. Department of Labor, 68% of advertising agencies and public relations firms employ 1-4 employees. Majority of Virtual Assistant businesses are sole proprietorship.

We understand how time-consuming the daily mundane tasks can be. Generally these tasks are administrative in nature and can be delegated or outsourced to a Virtual Assistant. Examples of these tasks include bookkeeping, updating your website, setting appointments, placing phone calls, following up on e-mails, typing business documents, correspondences, etc. The time you save can be used to gain new clients and/or retain your current clients. A relationship between an agency and a Virtual Assistant has several advantages. When working with a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the actual time used. Why pay someone for down time. There would be no need to pay a full-time salary or benefits. If the agency is limited on space, there would be no need to expand to accommodate an administrative assistant. A Virtual Assistant works from his or her office.

Being that advertising and Virtual Assistant industries are similar in many ways, we could establish a viable business relationship.

Virtual Assistants Do More Than Just Type

July 3, 2007

Virtual Assistants (VAs) who are business owners do more than just type. We are also entrepreneurs, in addition to being small business owners. Virtual Assistant Networking Association (VANA) defines VAs as “A Virtual Assistant (substitute VA or Virtual Associate) works independently at an arm’s length, via the Internet, utilizing the latest technologies, to provide immediate professional support, services and skills to busy entrepreneurs and business managers.” International Virtual Assistant Association (IVAA) definition is “A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent entrepreneur providing administrative, creative and/or technical services. Utilizing advanced technological modes of communication and data delivery, a professional VA assists clients in his/her area of expertise from his/her own office on a contractual basis.”

As small business owners, we face the same issues and concerns as our clients. VAs are dedicated to helping their clients grow their businesses, while at the same time expanding his/her own company. It is a win-win situation. In addition to providing services, we are faced with the daily operations of a small business. These operations include everything from bookkeeping to marketing. In fact, VAs are hiring their own virtual assistants to help with the administrative tasks. We understand our clients’ business needs, because we are them. We do more than just type.

Another Way To Grow Your Virtual Assistant Business

June 30, 2007

We, as virtual assistants (VAs), generally attempt to grow our businesses by obtaining more clients. Now the new strategy is to grow our businesses by organizing a team of VAs to subcontract or outsource projects to. These VAs provide services, which will complement your services rather than compete with them.

In an attempt to grow my virtual assistant business and deepen my service list, I’m applying the same strategy. I recently organized a team of three VAs. My core service is word processing, and my team services include bookkeeping, real estate virtual assistant services (REVA), transcription, and website design. Their services complement my services rather than compete with them. Now I can offer these services in addition to my current offerings.

If you are Virtual Assistant wanting to grow your business, consider organizing a team of virtual assistants.
