The Techie Mentor
Starting a VA business is a daunting task, especially if you don't know what you are doing. Many people believe it's easy... anybody can do it! All I have to do is say "I'm a VA" and then I can work in my PJ's & only when I want to.
Others are under the impression that all you have to do is decide you want to be a VA, tell the world you are open for business and then poof - clients magically appear.
Or...you expect others to give you clients!
And, the biggest misconception is.... being a VA is just a job!
Sorry... but these could not be farther from the truth.
These are some of the reasons why 50% of ALL Virtual Assistants throw in the towel within the first year of starting their business. They aren't making any money!
Are You Using Linked In Effectively?
Maybe you have a Linked In profile but are not sure what content to add or where/how to connect with your target.
Have you heard other people are getting new clients via Linked In & would love to know how they do it!
Linked In is an untapped Gold Mine for making connections, generating leads & landing clients.
VA Business Policies
Every VA business should document their business policies to share with their clients.
The template provides sections along with examples to help you complete your business policies.
Document your policies so client's understand how you operate your business.
This template will help you document:
- Average turnaround times
- Rush fees
- And more...
Learn The Technical Skills You Need To Get More Clients!
Technology is the key to having an online business!
Client's need Virtual Assistants who understand and use the technology that runs their online business.
Here's the issue....
Where do you go to learn these skills?
Yes, some of the technology you can learn on your own, others... especially the ones high-end clients are looking for are not easily self taught.
Plus these are not necessarily the tools you would use in your VA business, which means how do you get access to them so you can learn?
If you're ready to learn the techie skills high-end clients are looking for then I encourage you to enroll in The Techie VA School™ today!
VA Operations Manual
Are your systems & processes documented?
Every business should have an Operations Manual that details how their business is run.
This template will help you document your process for:
- Bringing on new clients
- Conducting Kick Off Meetings
- Tracking Time
- Using Tools
- And more...
It provides sections along with examples to help you complete your operations manual.
VA Services Agreement
Before working with a client, be sure you have a signed contract. This is to protect you and your clients.
This is the VA Services Agreement (Contract) that I used in my VA business. Please be sure to have this document reviewed by an attorney to be sure it covers your specific business needs and your home country regulations.
VA Sub-Contractor Agreement
If you are building a team or just outsourcing extra tasks you should have a contract in place with anyone doing work for you & your business.
This is to protect both parties, just in case.
This is the Sub-Contractor Agreement that I used in my VA business. Please be sure to have this document reviewed by an attorney to be sure it covers your specific business needs and your home country regulations.
