Building A small Business Using a Virtual Assistant:
There are only 24 hours in the day . Many of us on line sellers feel so overwhelmed by all the tasks we need to accomplish in order to sell in this virtual world. We certainly can accomplish more if we rely on others to help us with our business tasks. For someone like me..type “A” control freak…personality, this is easier said than done.
A virtual Assistant can help me with such tasks as:
Listing items, photography, adverstising, blog writing, pintinterst, facebook posts for your website etc. How much I would like to budget for this, what work needs to be done, etc. all things to think about when hiring a VA.
I live in a “tech town” I believe I could easily get an intern to do some of these tasks for me, but: they probably could teach me more that I could teach them.
So other places to find a Virtual Assistant are (according to Ecomerce Bytes):
Word of mouth, as well as Twitter taps your network of followers for VA leads.
AssistU allows you to post your needs if you're looking to create a long-term relationship.
Elance connects you with a VA when you have freelance projects you need help with. Candidates bid on the work you post.
International Virtual Assistants Association lets you post a request for a proposal from a VA.”
