Hello Fellow VA's So the other day I posted a question on Facebook about clients who were posting a whole lot of list services for Virtual Assistants, and if as VA's we can offer all those services, and trust me, by asking this question, I have found numerous responses that I must agree with and will be sharing with you now. I have learnt that it's imperative to do what you like doing and being specific to the services that you like doing. So let's say I love doing the scheduling part of Social Media but because I am not a marketer I do not like doing Ads as a service from scratch. So instead of saying I offer Social Media as a service it will be too broad because there are numerous services that you can offer under Social Media, so being specific can be Social Media Scheduling or Social Media Marketing etc. Know from day one who you want to work with. I did my client avatar over and over again, at first, I wanted to work with Motivational speakers, Authors, and coaches because I saw everyone doing this. I was marketing to these persons which was burning me out and making me feel overwhelmed until I said, you know what, from day one I wanted to work with women in the Fashion Industry. So my target are women who are Image Consultants. Always continue to learn on the services that you like doing. Also, you can add on services that you do like doing. I also like doing auto-responding maintenance and so I offer this as an add-on service separate from my packages services. Basically even though I have been in the industry a year now, I am still learning as I grow and I do appreciate that other VA's here have made it clear on how to go about offering your services and having it down to a target, and because of this I am sharing here as well what I have learned. Best wishes.
Hi Everyone: I am a new Virtual Assistant. My name is Tamara Williams and I am from Kingston, Jamaica. I came across this forum on one of my many Google searches. I came across persons in the industry last year so I setup my WordPress website from July 2014. You can see it here, http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.com. However, it is very challenging because I am new to the VA industry as well as to being an entrepreneur. I am standing at the bottom of a steep hill for this learning curve so I am hoping to get as much help as possible from my peers. You can learn more about me here, http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.com/about-virtual-assistant. However, I really want to be my own boss. So I decided to take it step by step. I decided not to start a LLC but to plan to do it part-time as an independent contractor. That way I can get practical experience before setting up a business. My background is in I.T. but I am not interested in offering any of those services. So far based on the blogs I follow, webinars I watched and some help from peers I set up my list of services. The ones I have so far are: WordPress Blog Posting Email Newsletter Setup and Creation eBook (PDF) Creation and Formatting Content Submission for e.g. videos, slideshows PowerPoint Presentation Creation and Formatting Internet Research Content Writing Social Media Marketing (Pipeline) You can see them here: http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.com/virtual-assistant-services/. I even joined the IVAA too. I have been reading so much online that I haven't gotten around to reading their materials but plan to do that soon. You can see my profile here: https://ivaa.org/profile-display/?id=3859 Other VAs suggested that I could focus on Coaches, Speakers and Authors as my target audience. So they are my target right now. I haven't gotten any clients as yet because I don't have the marketing and sales skills but I am hoping to soon. It's like being in a catch-22 because I need clients so that I can have money to spend on training myself. However, I plan to search the forums for some tips about finding free job boards or internships or joining a VA team or so on.

I am looking forward to meeting more of my peers! Have a great week! Best Regards, Tamara Williams
Hello Everyone! This looks like a great community. My name is Patricia Marcero and I was given about 18 months notice that the corporate office I worked at was going to close. Since the main office is in NH, not practical to make that move from SoCal. Although I have 25+ years administrative and other support in the corporate world, decided I didn't want to go that route anymore. After much research, found the VA world and my daughter and I decided this would be a great career for us moving forward. So we just went 'live' 2 weeks ago with our business, Borderless Administrative Services LLC, and am excited to see what the future holds! We will be starting with general administrative support and adding other services as we go. My daughter already works from home and will be continuing with that job until we get so crazy busy that she can quit that job (Thinking positive here ) I'm looking forward to discovering all the great information on this site and getting to know more of you! https://www.borderlessadministrativeservices.com/ @@borderlessas
