  • Finding the Right VA for Your Niche Business

Partnering with a Virtual Assistant, What’s in it for You?

Today, businesses that take advantage of technology and welcome change are able to achieve success faster, and on a much wider scale then ever before. By remaining competitive and implementing strategies to automate your office and deliver your products and/or services to a more targeted audience, sooner then your competition, is key. Regardless of the type of products and/or services you offer, the volume of sales you wish to achieve or the complexity of your processes and/or procedures, the right tools and resources to get optimized, do exist.

As a business owner, you do not need to have a desire or the technical know how to implement these strategies. Even if you are working alone and with a tight budget, there is good news. Technology has never been as user friendly and cost effective then it is today. With that said, the number of companies producing this technology is certainly on the rise; therefore the choice of application is ever expanding. Just as a user becomes proficient with a product and/or service, it is inevitable that a more optimized version will come to market. Smart businesses, will make every effort to keep up to date and evolve, otherwise risk falling behind or becoming obsolete.

The most cost effective alternative to taking on this challenge yourself or bringing in another employee is by outsourcing the workflow to a VA. A VA’s sole existence relies on technology, which makes them one, if not the most technical savvy, innovative, flexible and highly skilled business service professional around today.

Whether it’s the diversity of clients, the various industries, the obstacles they overcome or the successes they share in VA’s are constantly coming up with new ways to meet their clients needs and move them forward.

Testimonial Raves ...

VAnetworking has been a godsend for me and my future VA practice. When I first found this forum, I thought it was almost too good to be true! It's a place where VAs at all stages can share their knowledge, experience, expertise, concerns, and support. I don't know of many other industries that are so supportive of their competition!

I've been amazed at how quickly one can go from the "helpee" to the "helper" at VAN. You have all been so helpful to me...the least I can do is pass the torch to other emerging VAs! As I build my practice, I can't wait to share my real-life VA experiences with all of you! Get ready – I'm sure I'll have many more questions to ask when the clients start calling!

Thanks to Tawnya for providing such a wonderful place for us to network with each other, and thanks to all the moderators and volunteers who keep this forum running like a well-oiled machine! Last, but not least, thanks to all the amazing members here who make this forum so great! VAN is truly a virtual gold mine of information and support, and I'm so proud to be a miner!
