    Canva Question

    You can't add links to images using any program. It would be awesome if we could embed some code into an image that has a link automatically hooked up to it but so far we can't. The only way you can add a link to it is if you added the image to your website and then linked to it that way. Hope that makes sense.

    Getting started after several times of getting started

    Hey Regina, don't fret, you've just taken the hardest step. Asking for help You are not the first to sit back and lurk so don't be too hard on yourself. Fact is though, the only way you can move forward in VAinsiders is by opening up and becoming accountable like you just did today Don't worry about getting the VAC as we can still help you in your steps to having a profitable VA business. There was no VAC when I started (nor #VAforum) or any startup programs and I did it. You can do this too, especially with all the support in this group. There is a checklist inside your VAinsiders area in the VAult to give you a blueprint to getting your business started up. Start checking things off and anything you have questions about, just ask us. That is what we are here for

    VAVirtuosos.com Attendee Networking Area

    Hi Elsie and welcome to #VAVS! You have an awesome WHY to attend this conference, to build a business that allows you to stay home with your 6 kids and watch them grow. When you know you why (the push behind what you want to do) it helps everything else fall into place like finding clients, starting your business, etc. Take it all one step at a time. Enjoy the conference and use that followup sheet for your takeaways and action plan that you can implement after the event is over.

    Canva Question

    Where will you be putting this graphic to have it link to a URL? And no I don't think that is possible to embed a link into an image is it @markofapproval ? Wouldn't that be cool if you could? Maybe there's an idea in there for someone to invent LOL

    Canva Question

    This might be a good question for our Canva Expert @Veronica as I don't know Canva. @Danielle uses Adobe Spark and I use Photoshop still.

    Prices to Charge for Blogging?

    Great idea @markofapproval We've often been asked by attendees to get this done with our #VAVS seminars . Unfortunately at the low price of $37/ticket it is not in our budget to add this option but a good service offering.
  15. I totally understand now the reasoning behind this blog post and making it appropriate for any business online. It will attract your prospective clients right? I don't have any statistics with regards to checklists having better signups than other things like tip sheets, ebooks, etc. but here are my thoughts on it ... The idea behind the perfect lead magnet may take some strategic testing on your part as you know your target audience better than anyone else. What would they like the most? Sometimes you can ask them if you are in networking groups or even survey them through the people already on your list. Mark mentioned in a group coaching call that a checklist on steps to do a webinar might be a good lead magnet if someone was catering to entrepreneurs who required webinar setup services and I agree! It's short and sweet and most likely something people will give their email up for plus highly targeted. Fact is though, you still need to test your market as everyone's market is different. What your market may want compared to mine could be totally different. Like, let's say you work with business CEOS who usually are "logical, quick to act" men and I work for more "laid back" work at home moms. A checklist that is quick to read might be great for your list but for mine who have time to relax when their kids take a nap, a detailed ebook might be a better lead magnet for me. That's why it's so important to know what your peeps want and what they would even buy if it had a price tag on it. Then give that away to them and they will sign up! There's no successful technique to knowing which lead magnet will work best except to know your market inside and out and give them what they want. Sharing on your blog (new content is king for google) is awesome but make sure there is something in it for you too (building your list). Giving is fine but you also need to make money and stay in business too. You'll find over time that your list will become a crucial part of your marketing plan to get a new client whenever you need to fill another slot
