  1. Hi everyone, I have been checking the views of my posts on LinkedIn. I got some likes on a couple of adds. That is encouraging. Here is my question: When my LinkedIn poster got a few views on one of the services I posted last week. Should I reach out to them and see if they are interested in that offer. What should I tell them? Suggestions, please? Warm Wishes, Marie Mason www.cmvirtualassistantagency.org
  2. Hello all, It's been quite some time since I've posted here. I'm hoping that someone may be able to point me in the right direction. I have a client who's looking for someone to take over her Facebook ads for her. I'm not a social media specialist and am hoping to give her some referrals to some great resources. Anyone doing this kind of work, or can refer me to people that they've worked with who are great at this? Thanks in advance! Kelly
  3. This article talks about social media marketing and lists six things to avoid doing if you want your message to attract clients. Read it here http://bit.ly/P9QesI and maybe share your thoughts on this list, do you have suggestions for adding to it?
  4. Hi everyone! I finally created a Facebook fan page. I would love it if you all could "like" my page. https://www.facebook.com/ultimatevirtualassistantsllc Thanks!! Jeanette
  5. Hello, everybody! Thanks for welcoming me to the forum. Just thought I'd quickly introduce myself and give a bit of background. I'm a young, recent college graduate from Florida State University where I received my degree in Hospitality Management. I've worked from the lowest line-level employee at a staff restaurant to management in a 4-star hotel but have decided that the work-life balance of physically working in Hospitality is not healthy for me. So instead of working as an employee of a resort or the like I've decided to offer them services virtually. I'm focusing on small-business hospitality, specifically social media and marketing, but will do whatever tasks required. I also have experience in travel blogging and am offering the same services to travel bloggers as well. If you all have any suggestions or ideas, or know anyone looking for the services I'm providing, anything is appreciated! Feel free to add me on linkedin, I'd love to get to know you all better! https://www.linkedin.com/in/jack-hamm-9574a044 You all have a fantastic day. Hope to talk to some of you soon. Jack Hamm
  6. Hey everyone! I hope you're doing great! So I've taken a lot of advice on how to find clients (I'm completely new with no existing clients) and one I find intriguing is joining facebook and linkedin groups of your target market so you can easily directly talk to them. So I've done that (one of my main targets is travel bloggers) but I'm not quite sure how to say to them that I'm offering my services without being spammy and risk getting kicked out of the group. Most of the groups are just about bloggers helping each other out with post likes and sharing articles. Are there any techniques you all have used that tend to work well? Thanks in advance! Jack Hamm
  7. Hello Everyone. I'm here today to seek your assistance. I am hoping you will share your favorite creators for logo designs. Who did you use when you created your VA business? I used Fiverr when I first began, but I feel that I need to upgrade. I have a website and many social pages so I don't need a lot of work done, just a "fresh look." Thanks.

  11. Hi Everyone! My name is Robyn and I want to start by thanking Tawnya for the wonderful opportunity in allowing me to be a moderator in this forum! I've been very busy these last few weeks but wanted to stop, take a breath, grab a cup of coffee and say HI! to everyone and introduce myself. I'll start off by saying I'm a Technology Queen... actually I am The Technology Queen, originally I was going to use the word geek but I liked the word Queen much better. I have been running an awesome online VA business for a few years now and have been doing really well as a result. A few of the things I'm known for online are telesummits, web design, project management, social media and just plain old troubleshooting online tech issues... I chose to moderate this group because I love all things computer/tech related, from online to offline I absolutely love the tech world. I am happy to answer any questions you may have and my goal is to create more engagement and have a really active forum. I have some ideas running around in my head and will share soon... Thanks for taking the time to read this! Much love, Robyn
  12. Hello, I am Dal. I am fairly new to the VA Business. Over the last year and a half, I have completed some projects on Elance and a couple on my own. I am really excited about building my own business (YourProjectSolutions.net). I do not have a speciality at this time, but my background includes 12+ years in Administrative Support and 9 years in HR Management. My freelance work has been administrative. I have a real interest in Social Media and Web Design (planning on learning WordPress). I am webmaster of a website that I developed and maintain for a local group and also have built 2 or 3 Facebook pages for myself. Currently I am enrolled in a Social Media Marketing course online. I hope that these activities will develop into my specialty. It's great to become a part of your group and I am looking forward to building new relationships and learning from everyone! I welcome your advice and help!
  13. Hi there! I have a client who would like for me to handle their Instagram account as part of the social media I do for them. I am having a hard time figuring out how to make this work from my PC as I do not have a phone that has the Instagram app. I have two questions: 1) If I were to have a phone, I would have my own account. Is it possible to switch back and forth from my account and my clients account? 2) What is your favorite app for the PC to use Instagram? From what I have found, there are a few and some of them are limited. Thank you in advance for your help! I have known about VA forums for a while now but am new to this site as of today. Happy to be here! May your day be filled with greatness, Sarah
  14. Hi! I'm Jamie and I am working towards becoming a virtual marketing assistant! I am located in Dallas, Texas. Happy to be here! - Jamie Leigh
  15. So far, I’ve been a social media dud. I can attribute this in part to the fact that I’m an introvert. I used to run a blog about healthy cooking and eating habits. I did my own posts and videos, but got cold feet when it came to promoting my site. My networking consisted of opening an account, posting a link to my site, following a few popular people, and retweeting the catchy stuff on Twitter. Keep in mind that what I retweeted had absolutely nothing to do with my niche. You can guess what happened. All of the content that I worked so hard to create went unnoticed, and my site did not do as well as I hoped. Epic Fail. Now, I’m looking to change all of that. Instead of using my introverted personality as an excuse to fail; I’ve vowed to work towards improvement. First up: Twitter I decided to make good use of the webinars on VAnetworking. I wasn’t sure which social media account to tackle first, so I just chose Twitter. I found a webinar called “Twitter tips for VAs” by Kathy Colaiacovo. There is a lot more to Twitter than meets the eye! For instance, its sister sites: Twellow and TweetLater. These are great tools for creating connections and keeping up with current ones. It’s more than tweeting and following. There should be an organized method involved. Kathy gave a lot of other helpful hints, and I gladly soaked it all up. There are a few more Twitter webinars on VAnetworking, which I plan on checking out. Also, Kathy has a YouTube channel that I plan on using as a resource as well. It’s the end of my workday, and this post is the last task that I will complete tonight. But, tomorrow’s to-do list includes setting up accounts on Twellow, TweetLater, and Friend or Follow. I am excited about using these tools to grow my network! What’s Next? I don’t expect to become an expert in social media overnight. But at least I now know that I can get better. I believe that following Kathy’s tips will really help me to improve. Of course, there is more to social media and networking than just Twitter. Twitter is only a piece of the puzzle. My next stop is LinkedIn. I have a profile and have joined a few groups. However, I have a feeling that I am not using LinkedIn to its full potential. I’m saying a quick prayer of thanks for the webinars that will guide me. Happy networking, Meghan www.mgrayva.com
  16. Hello Everyone! I am beginning my VA journey and so excited to be part of this! I look forward to being here with everyone and will update as I reach each milestone! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and New Years, and New Beginnings! Teri
  17. Hi all, I am providing Virtual Assistant services. I created Facebook fanpage, Twitter and Linkedin. I have questions that what kinds of content that I will post on Social Media? And how to distribute the content: how many percents for Virtual Assistant services, how many percents for other information? Thank you,
  18. Hi my name is Jill Hurley and I am the owner of Essentially Jill. We opened our doors in July of 2014, but I have been working as a professional Executive and Administrative Assistant for the last 20 years. My expertise is in website and social media management, but I also work for several clients doing online research, bookkeeping, and so much more. I specialize in assisting businesses that are just starting out. If you or your friend is taking the plunge to step out and become an entrepreneur, then I can come along side and champion you along in the process. I can help take care of things that will help create an immediate legitimacy for your brand. It is incredibly easy in today's world to have business cards, websites, stationary, embroidered shirts, car magnets, and so much more. I love to strategize and consult in the process as you dream starting a new business. I work out of Lubbock's Premier Co-Working space, Tumbleco, located at 2407 20th St. This gives me turn-key access to board rooms and meeting spaces where I can bring clients as they plan their building. If you are brand new and just starting out or if you have been established for many years, I would love to join your team. I look forward to hearing from you soon. You can reach me at 806-831-2919.

  21. Hi all, first I wanted to take a minute and introduce myself. I'm Sarah Santacroce and I'll be your new moderator for this forum. At a recent networking event we had to say 3 things that were special about ourselves and that people would hopefully remember about us. So here are my three things: I currently live in Switzerland, the country of mountains and chocolate I also lived in California for a while, that's why a client called my style a mix of “no nonsense Swiss efficiency and Californian ‘yes we can’ enthusiasm” I speak 5 languages (English, German, French, Italian & Spanish) So that's me in a nutshell. To find out more about me, feel free to visit my website. But enough about me, I just wanted you to know who I am and why you will be seeing my messages a lot on this thread. Here are my plans for this Networking & Social Media Thread: I'd like to plan weekly tips, resources or questions I'd like YOU to share your opinions, your advice and really use this as a NETWORKING forum So now it's your turn. If they ask you at the next networking event which 3 things about you make you special (or just make people remember you), what will you say ? Just think about it or feel free to share here with all of us !
  22. Did you know about this cool little trick to get more traffic to your blog posts or newsletters ? It's called clicktotweet.com. Basically whenever you say something smart, something of value, something share-able either in your blog post or your newsletters, you can make it a "tweetable". You do this with this nifty little online tool called clicktotweet.com. This increases traffic to your website and makes you look like an authority, because people will quote you or your site. Someone who uses this really well is Marie Forleo. If you're not familiar with "Marie Forleo TV" have a look at http://www.marieforleo.com. Have you used this tool before? If not, will you give it a try?
  23. Hi Everyone, Here at VAnetworking we use Hootsuite to manage all our social media accounts. I also use it for my VA business and for all my blogs. I received a coupon code today for 50% off Hootsuite Pro for 90 days that I wanted to share with you. It is valid until September 30th, 2013. The coupon code is HOOTXA90 Hootsuite also has a free account so if you don't already have an account you should at least start using their free account. If your clients use Hootsuite you could even share this coupon code with them. Sign up to Hootsuite TODAY!
  24. My name is Jesse Abercrombie. I started doing virtual assistance last fall, specializing in social media, e-mail marketing, editing and proofreading and e-mail customer service. I'm currently living in Asheville, North Carolina, and I love it here because of the emphasis on personal growth, civic responsibility and holistic health. I am currently single for the first time in quite some time, and it's a welcome change for me to take some time away from having a relationship to get to know myself better and focus on my work. I enjoy meditation, yoga, kirtan, soccer, and live music. I found the site after many Google searches of various kinds in an effort to locate a virtual assitant forum with a focus on networking. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better, and I welcome referrals at this time, as I currently have availability to take on new clients. All the best, Jesse
  25. How much time do you find yourself spending on your social media marketing efforts each day? Or week? I want to start dedicating more time on social media for my VA business. I spend a lot of time on social media for one of my niche blogs but want to dedicate time for my VA business. I am always putting those networks to the side. After managing all my clients social media accounts the last thing I want to do it update mine. But seeing the success my clients are having from my efforts makes me want to focus on mine as well. I find posting just one update, like I just did today with a photo and text to, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ takes me quite some time. Each social network has a different format, size etc. It doesn't take much time to schedule a few posts into all my social media accounts to go out daily. But when I want to make a post more personal I find it can take me up to 30 minutes to do it all my networks, this includes editing the photo as well. That is a lot of time. So I was wondering, how much time a day do you spend on social media marketing for your VA business? Do you just schedule posts for the week or do you manually update your networks? How much time do you spend networking with others on other peoples posts/updates?
