But Anna, what exactly do you mean when you say you are a Virtual Assistant!?

what is virtual assistent

– Name @daretodreamva

A Virtual Assistant – or VA – is like a behind-the-scenes super hero. This is someone you can depend on when your business is booming and you have too much going on. You may also want a VA when you’re not sure what’s going wrong and you just need someone who knows what to do next. There are plenty of scenarios where virtual assistants can come in handy. First things first though, you can take a deep breath and relax- you are in the right place!

VA’s typically work remotely. Sometimes, you may find a virtual assistant locally and then they can help out with some additional tasks as well. Working remotely is the best case scenario for a business owner, because it saves the company lots of money. With an Independent Contractor, there is no need to worry about the overhead of providing a place to work, materials, or the most expensive- insurance! A successful virtual assistant is someone who has great time management skills since they are usually working for more than one client at a time. They typically make their own office hours which also requires discipline. Sometimes, specific office hours can be arranged by contract when the client finds it necessary.

Business Owners Love the Perks

Virtual Assistant Tasks:

Administration

This will depend on your needs, but generally, these are the typical tasks: calendar schedule, e-mail sorting (deleting those annoying spam e-mails), scheduling appointments, and more.

Bookkeeping

Some VA’s will offer bookkeeping services, which means the numbers will be double checked and made sure everything is correctly entered. Forgot those meeting expenses? No worries, those can be simply added. Send all receipts to your VA and it’ll be handled.

Social media management

This means your VA will take over your account and act as you. Ensuring consistency and brand identity, so posts will be scheduled, audience engagement, hashtag, and competitor research.

Content creation

in mind you’d like to talk about, but just don’t have the time to invest the money into research? No worries. That’s what a VA is here for. Let’s say you want to write a blog article or some social media posts about mindset, but you don’t have the time to read up on it. That’s where I come into play! I complete the research, create the content in your voice, and make sure it gets published. It doesn’t have to be content writing only, this can also go for creating sharp graphics or templates with quotes.

Content repurposing

My personal favorite! A lot of entrepreneurs don’t consider the goldmine of content they have already created! Old content can be freshened up and reused. An example could be turning a YouTube video into social media posts or a blog article. Now, we have taken one piece of content and used it across every social media platform. This could also include quote graphics for either Instagram or Pinterest, which would increase the website traffic, and therefore, audience.

Content strategy development

Are you completely lost when it comes to social media? Are the “Do’s and Don’ts” just too much to keep up with? Does the idea of consistent branding make your head spin? Are you unsure of what days you should be posting? I have the ability to develop your content strategy with examples, competitor analysis, hashtag research, topics, and more!

Podcast or video editing

Maybe recording video or audio of yourself isn’t the issue. Maybe your issue is trying to figure out how to put together the right pieces while clipping out the bad. Let me help you convert the raw items into a finished piece that can be published.
