When you’re looking for advice about your VA business, there is so much information you can refer to and not all of it may point you in the right direction. As someone who’s been in the trenches as a VA myself, I’ve learned a few things about how to make your blog more useful and I’m happy to share these tips with you. If you’re uncertain about what to share on your blog, just start by being yourself. If you want your VA business to grow, it’s not the time to hold back or play small.
Here I provide information related to the business of being a virtual assistant. You'll find tips, training, and get a behind the scenes look at my virtual service based business. Whether you consider yourself to be a VA, social media manager, virtual service provider, or freelancer, you're in the right place!

Once you gain more experience and learn all the ins and outs of the services that you provide, you can take your VA business a step further by offering suggestions and making recommendations to clients who are looking for that kind of assistance. Instead of waiting to be told what to do by the client, you can be more proactive and share your knowledge about how to proceed with a project. This includes knowing the best tools to use and what each one is capable of doing. I’ll share some examples of how you can be more than a VA who just does the work.
How much of a conversation can you remember days, weeks, or even months later? When you’re talking to prospective clients, it’s important to remember what you discussed so you can write a proposal and complete the project as agreed. Even if you’re taking notes, you might miss some of the details. That’s why I recommend recording both voice and video calls. Then you can refer back to the conversation and make sure you don’t forget anything important. In this episode, I’ll share some tools for recording these calls and additional benefits for doing so.
