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

Included are:


1) The holiday season is fast approaching us. Are all your greeting cards stamped and ready to send off to your clients, business colleagues, friends and family?  For most of us, this seems like such a daunting project organizing your greeting card list and sending out personalized cards yet it is crucial to connecting with your market.

A simple card referral system I use is SendOutCards. I can upload a spreadsheet of all my contacts, personalize one card with my picture/logo on it, add my handwritten note with my signature on it and then click SEND TO ALL!  Within an hour I can easily send 1,500 customized greeting cards to my people. I can even add gifts!

Try it out yourself. I’ve set up a F.R.E.E. trial at the link below where you can send out a card to someone you love right now.

2) We are NOW accepting prize donations for our upcoming Vanetworking Holiday Bash held every year in December. Contact me directly to learn more about how you can give to the Virtual Assistant audience and market your business through your contribution to our network.


3) Please take the VA Challenge For Cancer Research…

Kelly McCausey, host of Solo Smarts & owner of Mom’s Talk Network, is in the midst of a fundraiser for St. Baldricks Foundation and I’m partnering with her to help spread the word.  St. Baldricks raises money to fund childhood cancer research.  Kelly chose St. Baldricks because they choose to work with individual doctors and scientists who are focused on a specific problem.  That appealed to her since she knows how much one dedicated person can accomplish when they have the support they need.  (And we know all about that don’t we?)

To draw attention to the fundraiser, Kelly has died her hair pink this week (you gotta see it!) and on Black Friday (the day after the US Thanksgiving) she’ll be getting her head shaved bald. (That’s sort of the St. Baldricks thing… it makes a bold statement about the fight against childhood cancer.)

I am honored to partner with her in this!

With a big goal of raising $5000 by November 25th, 2011, you know she needs all the help she can get so I’m asking all of you to answer her challenge to Virtual Assistants!  Blog about the fundraiser or lend some of your social media muscle to get the word out.  If you do, you can enter a fun sweepstakes with some great business resources up for grabs.

4) Holidays are closing in and I know for me my appearance is important. Makeup is a quick and easy way to look and feel fresh and attractive. And guess what? My daughter is putting on a contest to WIN a prize pack of cosmetics valued at $60.

Now, I wanted to show this contest to you for TWO reasons.

First, you can win cosmetics! YAY!

But second and most important, it is an excellent example of using online marketing to increase your following on Twitter and Facebook plus build your email list.  It’s genius marketing! I’m always telling you to get online and raise the awarenes of your business through the social media venues. Now you can see what I’m talking about in full action at:
