Hi from Virtual Office Link

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. My name is Kathie and I am a newbie to the virtual world since being laid off after 16 years working at a non-profit organization as Office Manager. I decided to start my own business, Virtual Office Link, offering administrative assistance. I have a website http://www.virtualofficelink.ca/ and have connected with over 150 associates via LinkedIn but am having problems getting business. I visit numerous websites every morning, apply for jobs, but don't get any bites. Can anyone give me some advice?

Good Morning!

 

Welcome to the forum! I look forward to getting to know you through your posts here.

 

Can you be more specific about the clientele you are looking for? Or the type of work you are offering? There is such a variety of talent and expertise on this forum......

 

As for my personal experience, I found it easier to start off with meeting clients face to face in my local community. I found local networking groups a great way to get face to face time with other entrepreneurs and have received a lot of referrals. As they started posting testimonials online, I started getting more traffic online, and eventually, started being contacted by clients who found me online.

 

Wishing you all the best in your new adventure!

Welcome. My best recommendation is network, network, network! I also had really good luck with postcard marketing, but every area is different. :) Be sure and have a target market defined before focusing on your marketing.
