  2. Thank you Jason! I didn't consider the business cards, but that is a great idea. I have yet to make a Facebook page but plan to do so. My website is up and running. www.redoakva.site Which is exciting. I have joined a few Facebook groups as well. I hoping to gain some work soon. Again thank you for the encouragement and advice, it is much appreciated! Rachal

  4. Your mother-in-law is a wise woman You are equally as wise to start a website. you'll see that this venture can attract a lot of attention. Start on some free advertising sites to get attention of people. Meanwhile start a Facebook page as well. Make sure your competitive with the market, Maybe 10% cheaper, that's what I'm doing. JoinIng groups will help as well. This group is a perfect start. Distribute business cards at places that have bowls that collect them, or have boards where you can post your business. Its a lot of work but I suspect you know this already myself as well as others here I'm sure will be happy to help you as much as we all can. Good luck,and post your success. Jason.

  8. I charge my full rate for everything I do. Tell them it would be more practical from a money point of view to have you log in and do their emails in lumps like 9am, noon and then end of day or something like that. Monitoring it 24/7 isn't practical unless they are selling $10,000s per day then I could see them having a fulltime VA doing this 9-5.
  9. It's really going to depend on who your target market is. What colors are they attracted to? So first off, who is your target market? If educators than yellows, if financial people then green. As far as complimentary colors, same goes. It's all dependent on who your target market is and what colors speak to them.
  10. Hello, When it comes to choosing the colors for my brand and website design; is it better to use an analogous, monochromatic, complementary, triad, or tetrad color scheme?

  12. Hi Sarah, welcome to VAnetworking! Let us know if you have any questions about getting your business off the ground.
  13. Hi Lyra, welcome to VAnetworking! Congratulations on getting your website up and running!
  14. Welcome to VAnetworking! I agree with Tawnya as to creating graphics to see how long they take you to create so you can build your pricing structure.
  15. Hi Nancy, welcome to VAnetworking! Let us know if you have any questions.
  16. Hi all, My name is Nancy and I am a newbie to VA. I recently resigned as an elementary teacher and returning to school for a career change. I had been researching online for ways to earn money while being a stay- at -home mom and a student when I ran into a blog talking about VA work. I am currently getting myself familiar with the career and the skills needed to be able to start on my own. I'm excited to get started!
  17. I am wondering if I still charge my full rate for just monitoring email. I have been in the business for a while but a new client has asked me to monitor 2 business emails 8/hrs a day 5 days a week. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you .
  18. Hi Crystal, glad to see you join us! Great webiste and love the color you choose. Looking forward to networking with you here and learning more about you.
  19. Hiya and welcome! So looking to get to know you through your participation here. Great website, good work!
  20. I would use whatever you are comfortable with. My Accountant tells me what I have to use and no reason you can't tell your clients that Sage is what you will be using for them. It's your business, make it work how you want it to.

  25. Hi all, Im Crystal. I just launched CrYstAbli.com in response to my first client & friend, bugging me to get off my butt and make this side gig a real thing so he could pay me more (what!?) and recommend me to his network. Thanks a million friend! (Yes, he gets a discounted rate for this!) I have been in the business of executive services and accounting for more than 20 years. I hate to be bored so Ive worn as many hats as I could and always kept learning new stuff to add to my skills arsenal. Im focusing my biz on bookkeeping via QuickBooks and am currently working on my QB Pro certification. I also love proofreading and editing, even legal docs and I have some design in my background too so I love creating slide shows, flyers, newsletters, resumes, etc. My site lists all the things I plan to start with for now. Im on the Central California Coast, single mom of 4, granny of 2. I love being involved with my kids, church & friends. Oh, and I read a lot. Thanks for listening, Im really looking forward to building this into my FT gig with the help of VANetworking.com!
