    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Wow! So glad you love horses!! I have owned horses for 19 yrs and counting. Part of my efforts as a VA would go to support the purchase of a farm as my original farm at to be sold when I divorced.

    Good suggestion. I wanted to offer free designs to establish VA in exchange for testimonials and be able to build an interesting portfolio. On my 2 years reading... I saw many doing that. I would be glad to contribuate in this group too.

    Hi Jason, welcome to VAnetworking! Looks like your FB cover photo appeared blurry because you posted the mobile link. I've updated your post for you. As Tawnya said, you'll want to post engaging content consistency on your Facebook Page.

    Thanks Tawnya, that is a great idea! I am interested in several of the services as well and currently am doing some research on them to see how I can apply my skills. I will definitely keep this in mind.

    Thank you. I am really excited to be here! I am currently looking for sponsors within the pharmaceutical and healthcare-related industries. I have had some contacts and even communicated with some but we never seem to get anywhere! They appear interested and then they stop replying! I don't want to pester them, so I tend to stop contacting them after a while. I feel a bit stuck at the moment!!

    I found this post online. I was the author 11 years ago. I have since changed the name of my company but I still primarily support churches and nonprofit organizations. I was blessed to see this post...It brings me joy.

    Welcome to VAnetworking! I don't really have anything to add to what Tawnya said. You can definitely utilize your real estate and paralegal background. There are Real Estate VAs (REVA) and also paralegal VAs. @Tawnya Sutherland, is there a Real Estate VA resource site? I thought there was.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes Tanya and Danielle! Unfortunately, I won't make the call today as I have a prior appointment. I will be on the next one though. Have a wonderful day!

    Thank You Tawnya! That is exactly why I searched for this group again. I always had a warm welcome with a good feeling to participate when questions were asked to respond with confidants and feel like I was part of a Great Group of Friendly Professionals!!

    Hiya and welcome to our network. What a great niche to get started in. Block time in to work specifically on finding clients. Good job on getting your websites up and running. Nothing is more credible in eyes of your prosective clients than having a storefront. Here's a few of my blog posts on finding clients. Any questions just ask us!

    Hi Jennifer, welcome to VAnetworking! Let us know if you have any questions about starting up.

    Hello, I hate to admit this but I have been a VA insider since June and have yet to start my business. Part of the reason is that I stand in my own way and overthink things but the other part is feeling really lost on where to start. I cannot purchase the VAC program at this time which I know would help me. Where should I begin in VA insiders and VA networking to actually execute steps on starting my business?

    It's been awhile since there has been a new post in this section, so let's get it going again! Whether you are new to graphic design or a veteran, what are your favorite programs and tools? There are SO many programs out there and some are specialized, so go ahead and choose your favorites. I'll go first! 1. Adobe Illustrator - This is by far my favorite program. I use this strictly for logos, icons and creating 2D graphics from scratch. Illustrator is great for creating vector graphics, which will let you retain their size without losing quality. There is still sooo much more I need to learn about it as it's ever changing. 2. Adobe Photoshop - My second favorite program for editing images and enhancing photographs. Auto batch editing in Photoshop is also a dream. You can create all kinds of things in photoshop! 3. Canva - Canva is an awesome alternative and great for businesses. I use canva to make tons of social media graphics, infographics, e-books and more. It's very user friendly and a great starting point if you are new to graphic design. Those are pretty much the only 3 that I use, because I can do everything I need to do in them. There's also InDesign, which is great for posters, e-books and various layouts. I haven't gotten into it much, but it's highly recommended. Let's hear your favorites!
