Posted on December 31, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Data Entry – Classified Advert Posting 0

Posted on December 24, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

If you sell a product or service and want the maximum exposure possible, posting to online classifieds can be a great way to get the word out. But posting ads on a regular basis to a number of sites and cities can be exceptionally time-consuming. If you can give us an ad template, a list of cities, and the rest of your requirements, we can ensure that your ads will appear on schedule. You can spend more time fulfilling orders instead of endlessly prospecting for new clients.

Are You Answering Your Telephone? 0

Posted on December 17, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

I’m sure like most solo professionals, entrepreneurs and small businesses you spend a fair amount of time, money and effort marketing your product or service.

Your prospect hears or sees your marketing messages, decides that they like you, trust you and finally (drum roll please) they want to work with you. They pick up the telephone to speak to you and instead of you they get a recorded voicemail saying “sorry but your call cannot be taken at the moment…”

Disgruntled prospect? A lost sale? All that marketing activity a complete waste of time, money and effort? Quite possibly.

Now how differently would that prospect have felt if that call had been taken by a real live person who was polite and courteous. You were still personally unavailable but the prospect would have advised that you were in a meeting or away from your desk and that their call would be returned as soon as you were available.

Would that prospect feel that they had been acknowledged? Would they have the impression that you had an effiiceint receptionist or colleague passing on your messages? Would they have a far better impression of you and your company? The details of that call would then be instantly forwarded to you by email or text to deal with as appropriate.

What if I told you that all it would have cost you was less than 99p?

Online Articles – Why Give Away Your Expertise? 0

Posted on October 22, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

If you’re new to marketing your products or services online, one of the hurdles you will have to face is why you should give away your expertise for free? After all, isn’t your expertise what you are expecting clients to pay for? Now I’m not talking about giving away huge chunks of time for face to face consultations, or distributing products by the truck load. What I am talking about is giving away snippets of information that prove that YOU are the expert in your particular field. What we are talking about here are articles.

As you can probably imagine, there are thousands upon thousands of email newsletters or ezines, blogs, Twitter posts and web sites being produced every week, all of which need content. Most of these publishers don’t write all their own content as they couldn’t possible produce enough to keep their readers ‘fed’ on such a prolific basis. So why should you let them reproduce yours free of charge?

First of all you can demonstrate your expertise in your particular area, giving anyone who reads your article the impression that you are the expert in that particular field. This is because at the bottom of your article you can (and should) add your ‘Author Tag’ which is a short paragraph about you and your business. In this information you should include a call to action and a link to your web site, for example: “For more free Hints and Tips like these, sign up for our free monthly ezine at http://www.my-va.com/html/news.html

Now comes the clever part. Once you have written your article, you can of course just add it to your web site to increase the amount of content available to your readers and also hope that someone picks it up and reruns the article. However, if you then syndicate these articles to the online article directories, the benefits are two fold. Firstly, because these directories have new fresh content added to them all day every day (in the form of new articles), the search engines crawl them constantly and add the information to their search results. Ergo, your article will become indexed and will be out there for the world to see, along with your link to your web site, which in turn the search engine may follow and therefore crawl (or re-crawl) your web site.

The second benefit is that all those content hungry ezine, blog and Twitter posters also visit these sites looking for articles to reproduce. A condition of use is that your Author Tag is left intact, so again you are established as the expert to their audience, and again the search engines may index your article on their blog or web site and end up at your web site as a result of your link.

And finally, but by no means the least important of all the reasons to syndicate you articles, is that journalists often visit these sites looking for experts they can quote or interview. So how much would the free publicity be worth if you were to be quoted or have your article published in your industries top publication? Or what would it mean to your business if you were asked your opinion on your particular area of expertise on national tv?

At My Virtual Assistant, we provide an Article Distribution service that includes the syndication of your articles to online article directory web sites. All you have to do is write about your favourite topic, and we can distribute the articles across the internet providing you with lots of ongoing free publicity for years to come.

Press Releases – Are You Creating a Buzz? 0

Posted on October 08, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Nothing will get you more lovely free publicity more than a well written and syndicated press release. A well targeted release can showcase your business to your chosen target market and present you as the expert in their field.

But what should be in the perfect press release? Who should you send it to and how can you make it interesting enough to get it published?

Press releases need to be relevant and interesting. They need to capture not only the attention of the reader but the editor if you are looking for inclusion in a printed publication. How is what you have to say relevant to what’s going on in the news today. What angle or spin can you put on your story to make it current and ‘of the moment’?

If you’re at a loss as to where to start, relax, we can do it all for you.

At My Virtual Assistant, we provide a Press Release Creation and Submission service that includes a press release created to promote your business and submitted to online press release web sites.
