I am a new member here after watching a YouTube video that was amazing. The video was for this site.
I am not new to being a Virtual Assistant, I have done this for over 5 years I just never knew it was an "official job" and I have always worked for Realtors, an as a Business consultant for start ups. This year I got lured into the "freelancer & odesk hype" which was a disappointment. One thing I HATE, is waiting for money I already earned. If I knew upfront that I wouldn't get paid until AFTER the projects was complete plus an additional two weeks for the FIRST payment to clear, and that I couldn't withdraw multiple payments at a time. Well ladies and gents you get the point.
One thing I am unsure of, and am excited to try... I have been a "gamer" for quite sometime and love playing online games. My absolute favorites are World of Warcraft (WoW) and Everquest, EverQuest 2, so I was thinking about all of the services if I wanted to be a VA for the gaming community and open up a new niche for VA services.
Please give input, if you would like. I have NOT seen anyone marketing to online gamers or online game developers.
Some of the services I was thinking about include:
NEVER miss a Raid again (1-2 hrs) if raiding while your at work of family function
Level grinding ( 1-3 hours)
Epic item quest lines ( Get your epic items with out the dread of long quest lines)
Guild Master management : Build a functional website for your guild including membership request and once approved
provide Ventrilo access code for guild chat)
Guild message update
guild raid time schedule
Min for this 2-4 hours per week
For Game developers / designers: About to release a new game Our VA service will test your game, look over your marketing plan, and your website and provide feedback and have the ability to correct any issues that we see in your marketing plan and website. (10 hours per month)
This is a thought and I would LOVE to see if anyone else thinks this could be a success- as far as my current virtual assistant business here is my website http://www.evirtualaid.com
