Running and maintaining a FREE resourceful Virtual Assistant #VAforum such as ours cannot be run by one or two people and we appreciate when people, such as you, step forward to assist us.
VAnetworking is always looking for volunteers, could that be you?
OPEN: Virtual Assistants: You’ll be responsible specifically for proofreading and other general administrative services from time to time. Duties will also include helping us moderate our #VAforum and/or our other social networks (Facebook Groups, Linkedin Groups) for Virtual Assistants. You will be responsible for welcoming all new members with a friendly hello as well as assisting them with any questions they may have about the VA industry. As well Moderators must report spam and keep the forum topics organized. You will be required to consistently inspire engagement and collaboration at the forum by asking and answering questions. You must be a team player dedicated to seeing the VA industry grow. Being our Wordsmith VA Volunteer also means moderating our New Member Introduction #VAforum,
CLOSED: Wordsmith VA: You’d be responsible for copywriting projects we may need to be done from time to time like website sales copy, landing pages, blog posts, press releases, articles, social networking posts, ads, etc. Our ideal candidate is a writer who knows the Virtual Assistant industry inside and out (if you are a VA or have been in the past this is a PLUS!). Looking for a writer with a good command of English and a strong sense of grammatical structure. We are hoping you’ll have a desire to learn online marketing techniques to compliment your writing projects from working with sales funnels to optimizing (SEO) your blog posts to rank high in the search engines as you’ll be working alongside our Founder, Tawnya Sutherland, Certified Internet Marketing Business Strategist. Being our Wordsmith VA Volunteer also means moderating our Copywriting #VAforum,
OPEN: VA Graphic Designers – We are always looking Virtual Assistants with a creative flair to volunteer at our network helping us in the graphic design department. Someone who has a good eye for typography, color and design for online marketing materials. Willing to work with Canva and if you have Photoshop knowledge that’s a bonus but not always necessary. You will start working on small projects like images for our social networks and hopefully, grow into our full-time graphic designer for our network so an interest in learning branding/marketing a bonus. Excellent communication skills are a must as is an ability to absorb and apply constructive criticism from your project manager and work well with a team. An idea person is always appreciated as we are always looking for ways to improve our brand online through design. Being our Graphic Design Volunteer also means moderating our Graphic Design #VAforum,
- Canva Graphic Designer – We currently have an opening for a Canva Graphic Designer to help with our image marketing creating images for Pinterest and possibly other social networks. You’ll need to know Canva inside and out. You’ll have an eye for colour, layout and design and be able to use our Canva templates to create stunning images working directly with our team.
As a volunteer, you’ll gain RECOGNITION as a Moderator at our forum which further promotes you as an expert in your field. We’ve had many moderators come through our network and become experts in Social Media, Podcasting, Bookkeeping, Web Design, etc. We love to give back to others who give to us and we will always do our best to give Moderators at our network back tenfold. Be it extra promotion of their products, word of mouth client referrals, marketing advice or working together with them on joint ventures.
