VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS: Here’s your Weekender Report to keep you “IN THE KNOW” with informative and entertaining resources week-newsfor your virtual business success this coming week! Included are:


1. As many of you know, I attended the Affiliate Summit last week in Vegas. I roomed with Super Affiliate Lynn Terry and you can read all about our Affiliate Summit West experience here on Lynn’s Blog.

With over 4,600 attendees it was quite the networking experience and all the noise, crowded hallways and thousands of faces I didn’t know was a bit overwhelming to me, a closet introvert! To say the least, I met some very experienced entrepreneurs there who ARE making some big bucks with their websites by selling other people’s products using affiliate marketing strategies.

If you want to learn more about how to do affiliate marketing, I suggesting starting right here with Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook.

Rosalind Gardner is the “Affiliate Marketing Queen” who makes $500,000+ yearly selling other people’s stuff online. This is the best book on the market if you want to dive into affiliate marketing as a second revenue stream for your VA business.

And lucky for us, Rosalind lives just 4 hours west of me here in Canada which means I can pick her brain and spread her knowledge onto you so easily. So you’ll be hearing much more about her from me in the next few weeks. If I can find a way to help you make extra lipstick money with your VA website, you can be guaranteed I will help you in any way I can.

Check out Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook here and let me know what you think it in your comments below.

2. OH! If you’ve been wondering why I’ve been so quiet lately at the forum, it’s because I’m up to my ears in WordPress working on copy for our new website. If you have time to pop by, you’ll see it is fresher, cleaner and just simpler to use now. Please, don’t send any feedback of errors, links not working or spellchecks JUST YET 😉 In another week or so when it’s closer to launch time, I’ll ask for all your feedback VA proofing eyes. Thanks for your patience.

Catch a peek of our new Social Networking site for Virtual Assistants

The website will have three sections for you to choose from depending on your needs, each with its own blog area. This weekender report will not only be emailed to you but will also be posted at the VA Resources area so feel free to comment each week when it airs as I’d love to engage with you there.

I still have tons of content to add to our new website and I want to personally do this myself so everything on the site is perfect for your use. So once again, please bear with me for being quiet at our VAnetworking Forum as of late. Soon I’ll be back, talking non-stop, sharing and engaging with you all on the topic of virtual assistance.

3. I was just talking to Craig Cannings, Founder of VAClassroom, about all the new clinics they have in store for you for 2011. I’m excited to announce that the first live clinic will take place this Wednesday, January 26, titled “Google Places Mastery Clinic.”

In fact, I think this new niche will be a perfect complement to those of you offering social media type or SEO services to your clients. You will be well aware of the amazing opportunities for virtually any local business owner to significantly build their visibility, offline traffic and results through Google Places and other key location-based social networks and review sites.
