Setting yourself up as a Virtual Assistant

It will require time, dedication, passion, and patients. You will receive lots of advise from multiple sources and sometimes you will find this advise will contradict. It's important to focus on what works for you.

The key to starting as a Virtual Assistant is to start. This may sounds basic but it's all too easy to get lost amongst questions like "What platform should I use for managing social media?", "How do I build a WordPress website?", "Should I have business cards?" etc. None of these questions are important if you don't have a client.

Initially focus on your 'warm' network; friends, colleagues, acquaintances that you are already connected with via social media. Once you have paying clients this is when you can turn your attention to marketing efforts for clients outside your network.

Without paying clients you just have a hobby and an expensive one at that. For more advise please sign up to our newsletter.
