Virtual Assistant Weekender Report - November 13th

Recommended Posts

Hi Forum Members,


Here's your Weekender Report to keep you "IN THE KNOW" with informative and entertaining resources for your virtual business success this week! Included are:


*** Virtual News You Can Use NOW

*** VAinsiders Club MotiVAtor

*** eSEMINAR SCHEDULE - Mark your calendars!

*** HOT Topics at the forum this past week

*** Virtual Weekender FREEBIE






1) In October of 2008, VAClassroom launched the web's very first Social Marketing Specialist Training Program in response to a fast growing demand for virtual professionals with top-notch Social Media Skills. In their inaugural training program, they had about 50 students participate in the four week certification course!


Two years have past and many of these initial students have become Social Media thought leaders and have taken their businesses in exciting and profitable new directions! Craig at VAClassroom received testimonials from students who were still working the corporate world and were able to quit their "day job" to work full-time as a Social Media Specialist. How cool this that?


Well, on November 15th, there are currently about 65 students who are gearing up to chart a profitable new path in their business as a Product Launch Support Specialist. Craig believes that the opportunities for those with Product Launch skills could be even bigger then any of the preview niche training programs they have created. The reality is that those who know how to launch products well on the web are few and far between and I can't imagine the wave of small business owners who would LOVE to have a professional on their team with some Product Launch Savvy!


If you have already signed-up for the Product Launch Program, then way to go - Exciting things are ahead for you! If you are still considering taking this program, I would not hesitate any longer. The timing of the course could not be better as the opportunities these new found skills will create for your business will be amazing

2) It's that time of the year again to get in touch with your client and business colleagues by sending them holiday greeting cards and unique gifts to show your appreciation for them. An economical way to do this is by using Send Out Cards which is what I use and highly recommend.


AND you don't have to pay a ton of dollars to sign up to it either as now they have retail packages starting at only $49. Get a jump start on your holiday card giving today. Test this fantastic online greeting card system on my dollar now at:






3) It's True: Copywriting Skills Help VAs Land More Clients ...Sign up for the SEO Copywriting Course and Grow Your Biz!


Web copywriting services are in high demand, but the skills are in LOW supply. If you can create compelling, optimized copy for the web, you automatically gain a competitive edge.


And now my friend (and my own copywriter here at VAnetworking) is going to share her copywriting secrets starting next week. In 4 live webinars you'll learn how to write and edit copy that SELLS. (And take it from me, Karri makes it super easy!)


If you haven’t already registered, snag your seat now: http://www.VAnetworking.com/karriseo


Use coupon code COPYROCKS at the checkout and SAVE $50!


PS: I've known Karri Flatla since her “VA days.” She is one of the BEST copywriters working online today. You will ENJOY this training and walk away with a ton of copywriting confidence.
