New in the VA Business!!

Recommended Posts

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!

Hi Dal,

 

It's a pleasure to meet you. Investing in oneself is a really important step to making it in this industry. I admit, I also did some work on Elance but as a WordPress specialist/Web Developer. I found I would often be taken advantage of because the mindset of those on Elance is such.

 

That's why having your own website is a great step forward. I totally encourage you to learn WordPress and I'm here if you need to call out for advice.

Along with Social Media, look out for all possible ways of marketing. SEO, PPC are the demanding sort of marketing techniques that eventually helps generate a handsome no of traffic.

Thank you for your suggestions! I am now taking a WordPress course online and also some video tutorials. How do I go about working toward becoming a WP Specialist? Is there a certification and what do I need to do next? I would appreciate your help.

Dal we have some learning tools for Wordpress here. Becoming a WP Specialist is really just having the knowledge, skills, confidence and credibility to say that you are this. There really is no certifications for it.

Thanks so much for that information Tawnya.
