  1. Hi One other way that I've found to find good sites to submit to is to check out those that you see in Google Alerts. Set up a google alert for VAs and also other hot topics and then see where a lot of the releases are coming from. The ones that come up frequently are good to submit to. Thanks!
  2. Hi I'm thrilled to be a part of it. When you look at that line-up of speakers, it's like "woah" years and years of experience and so many different niches and ideas represented. So much knowledge, experience & fun to be had. Can't wait.
  3. Hi Bonnie Another excellent release! You absolutely have the best sources for where to submit out there. I love that it's not only article submission directories, but specialized listings as well. Whenever I get a new client in a different specialty I come there and find new places to submit. Totally helps me so much. Thanks!
  4. Hi Excellent release. I wish you the very best of luck with the course. I know it's going to rock. Thanks!
  5. CALLING ALL FLORIDA VAs Saturday, February 21st, we are having an informal GET Together of Virtual Assistants. We will meet at 2:00 p.m. at TGI Friday's in Coral Springs by the Coral Square Mall. From 2:00 to 4:00 we will share coffee, french fries & lots of ideas. We hope to make this an every month event on the 3rd Saturday of the month. Email me for details. diana@virtualwordpublishing.com Thanks! Hope to see you there!
  6. Hi I do recommend sending to all of them. They do get your keywords in and also recently one of the free ones I submitted got picked up by USAToday, so it really does work. What I normally do is use the client's information, but my email address. That way all the emails come to me and I can take action on them. You might want to confirm with your client how they want it. I do have a listing of the free ones, with the ones that are paid now if you'd like. Sure saves me some time. Thanks!
  7. Hi One of my goals of the new year was to get out of the office and do more face to face networking. I was hoping to set up a coffee on the 3rd Saturday of the month here. I'm in Margate, so Ft. Lauderale, Miami, West Palm, etc are pretty close. I'd love to meet some VAs. I was thinking at TGI Fridays. If you're interested, please email me. Or if you have other ideas of where to meet. Thanks!
  8. Hi Congratulations! That's really awesome. I bet you saw a big increase in hits from that one. Hope so at least. Way to go!
  9. Excellent release! I know we'll start seeing Google Alerts pop up everywhere too. You guys are so good at getting your releases out. I just heard from someone that in California some administrative assistants who were lucky enough to still have a job got their pay cut in half. From $18 to $9/hr. Wow! I know this might not represent all of CA, but it's still shocking. I don't think there's ever been a better time to become a VA. Thanks!
  10. Hi Thanks!! I love our industry. Yes, my girls are absolutely into PR as much as me. (Makes a mom proud!) Yesterday we were quoted in an associated press article on getting kids active and we talked about going to the gym. Wasn't business related, but fun. Amber, my 10 year old had to take a newspaper article into school for homework and she got to take one in that she was featured in. She was so excited. http://www.foxnews.com/wires/2008Sep15/0,4...admills,00.html If you ever get the opportunity to pitch an article for the Associated Press, it's so worth it. Their articles show up everywhere. You can submit your press releases there too. Thanks!
  11. Hi Congratulations! What a good release too. You so captured attention with those stats. Good job! Hope it brought lots of exposure.
  12. Hi Here's my latest press release (below). Also, me and my girls got interviewed for a story in the local papers. It's not VA related, but it did get my business listed, so I'll take it. We had a blast when they came out and shot it. My daughter came up with the idea to throw the supplies in the air. (She's my PR in training!) Thanks! http://momsmiami.com/?a=profile&u=2&am...amp;blog_id=686 Book Marketing & Publicity Success Is Achieved with the Right Publicity Virtual Assistant Margate, FL – (July 2008) Self-publishers and published authors alike often need assistance with the most vital aspect of their book journey, marketing and publicity.
