  1. I posted this in response to another thread but thought it may be worth repeating: When I started as a VA, I started by bookmarking every thread/webpage that looked useful to me, then got a 3-ring binder and made sections for 'company setup', 'marketing', 'bookkeeping', etc. then went back through my bookmarks, copied/pasted the useful parts into MS Word, printed these, and filed them in my binder. I STILL add new stuff to my binder on a regular basis and it's been 7 years! (I print them on the fly, now, though, 'cuz my binder has been organized for years.) So - what organizing methods/tips have worked for you?
  2. Hi Everybody! I am considering joining the VA world and have many questions before I decide how to best approach the idea. I have listed some of my questions below and would greatly appreciate any comments or suggestions. 1/ I envisage that the hardest part of this work is finding clients. As someone completely new to the industry I anticipate that it will take quite a while to build up a client-base and obtain regular income. What would be the best place to advertize my services to clients? 2/ A quick search of the web has identified the following professional organizations. With limited resources and no guarantee of making a reasonable income I would appreciate any comments on which of the organizations I should join and which I should avoid. Clayton's Secretary Canadian Virtual Assistant Network International Association of Virtual Office Assistants (IAVOA) International Virtual Assistants Association (IVAA) International Association of Virtual Assistants 3/ In terms of skills I think I have a varied but also highly specialized skill set. I don't know if I should focus on the specialized skills or try and offer a wide range of services. 4/ I have no problem with working for an established VA. Is there a list of VA's that sub-contract work so that I can send my resume to them? 5/ I am considering setting up a website to promote my services; are there any resources available for promoting a VA website? 6/ Realistically how much can I expect to earn per month as a VA? I realize that this will vary depending upon the skills offered but any ball-park estimate would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any responses Regards Alan
