How To Respond To Initial Enquiries And Eliminate Half The Competition

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

I find initial enquiries from potential clients interesting, I think you can tell a lot from a person from the way that they make that first contact, and often times in the beginning we wonder what the best way to respond is - well, this is the formula which works best for me, and from the feedback I've gotton from it, it's also why most clients will respond back instead of going to the other VA's they've contacted.

How To Stop Micro-Managing Your Team, Confidently

Monday, March 04, 2013

Expanding into a Virtual Team can be both exciting and stressful. Hiring support gives us a feeling that we're breaking into another level, moving forward and progressing with things, and then we find that often times we end up working even harder as we expand further because we micro-manage everyone and everything.

5 Common Things Virtual Assistants Generally Do That I Can’t Be Bothered With

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

This is kind of a strange post for me, I have in the title that the things I am about to discuss in this post I “Can’t Be Bothered” with (this phrase is used a lot amongst us Brits), and really I mean it. You know when your heart sinks and you get an internal sigh and your eyes roll, well that’s me when I think about those 5 things below. They are simply not what I would consider a good use of my time in my business, and in some cases they are just simply not necessary if you run your business in a certain manner, line up your ducks and use your chess pieces wisely. I’m not knocking the fact at all that for some VA’s they work great, and so when I am asked about them by VA’s, I won’t dismiss them at all, I can’t deny in any way that they don’t work, because I know for a fact they work well for some people, but they really aren’t my cup of tea, and maybe you’ll find this interesting, they’re all from personal experience and I’ve included some true stories.

Many new clients wonder how they’ll ever delegate to their new virtual assistant because they are not sure what may be appropriate or even if it’s feasible – but most of all, where they begin getting started.

How You Can Receive Amazing, Jaw Dropping, Eye-Widening Testimonials And Feedback From Clients

Friday, June 29, 2012

If you read a recent post I did on business roles, you’ll know I took the decision recently to expand my business. Well so far it’s going really well and the new clients I have taken in since then I am currently counting on 2 hands with lots of amazing potential clients in the pipeline – it feels really good. On a side-note the reason I have been able to expand this way is a new style of marketing technique I have perfected after a lot of trial and error, which I’m going to be exclusively revealing in step-by-step, ‘paint by numbers’ type instructions on how you can do it too in my new programme, “The VA Shoestring”.

2 Things You Must Strive To Earn From Your Clients, Besides Money!

Friday, June 22, 2012

When we start a new business and think of a client, we tend to think of how that client will pay us in exchange for services – that’s how we do business right – in other words, we must ‘earn’ money from them by providing them with something in return. But money isn’t the only thing we need to earn from a client, in fact in terms of the things we need to earn to sustain a successful, profitable long term business relationship, money comes third on the list of my priorities when I first come into contact with a potential client. This is good in a way because when earning money isn’t your primary aim to get started, you can really relax a little…
