Hi Jackie,

Welcome to VANetworking!

I would suggest you take a piece of paper or create an Excel sheet and brainstorm all of the services
you plan to offer your audience.

Look at your background and who you may have worked with in the past and decide if this audience
can utilize the services you have listed.

For example, you may have worked in real estate and can offer listing, advertising, promotional, social
media, website update services. Perhaps then you wish to work with brokers or real estate agents.

Perhaps you wish to offer writing services and would like to work with authors, speakers or coaches
who can utilize those services.

Also, check out other VA websites from the directory and research what others are offering to audiences
you may wish to reach.

Another option and one that I highly recommend is to volunteer your services. Try volunteermatch.org
and see if you can offer services to any one of the virtual opportunities available. Several requests
come in for social media services. So if you want to work on a particular skill without a good deal
of risk volunteer an hour a week. Then you can also ask for a testimonial which is crucial to creating
additional credibility in our business.

Please feel free to post back with additional questions.

Best,

Janine
