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?

Blogging – Have You Discovered It Yet? 0

Posted on September 10, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Blogging is a great way to position yourself as an expert in your field and regularly keep in touch with your readers, whilst building an interactive relationship with them?

Have you considered blogging?

Blogs are less formal than web sites allowing you to inject your own personality into the content. The snippets of information that you post are generally shorter than articles allowing you to post regular short pieces and links to other information your readers may find useful.

And the best news? As the content is regularly updated and ‘fresh’, search engines LOVE blogs. If you want to be found in the top of the search engines, it’s the quickest, easiest and most cost effective way to get there.

At My Virtual Assistant, we provide a Blog Set Up and Management service that includes the full technical set up of your blog. We also design and brand the layout of your blog so that it is in line with your current company logo, colours and image. Once set up you can add your own content or pass that task over to us along with the management of reader comments and subscribers.

The Magic of Thinking Big! 0

Posted on August 27, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

When you are in the setting up stages of your business, don’t forget to set everything up as though you were a large company. For example, set up various email address for different uses and don’t have all email coming to one address. You can have ‘yourname’, ‘enquiries’, ‘customer service’, ‘quotations’, etc. In the short term you can collect them all by diverting the emails to one central address, but later on when you want to set up an auto responder for a particular query, or send the handling of certain enquiries to your VA or employee, you will have already segregated the emails.

Use Commute Time to Write A Newsletter, Blog or Brainstorm 0

Posted on August 20, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Do you find that when you have a little ‘head space’ whilst driving or traveling on trains or planes you suddenly feel inspired? The idea for that article suddenly pops into your head or you feel stimulated enough to put together that email newsletter you’ve been meaning to send out?

Well there’s not much you can do to put pen to paper while you are driving or crammed into the 07:45 to Waterloo, so what can you do?

Most mobile phones these days have a recording facility so why not record what you want to say, just as you would have done years ago into a Dictaphone. You wont even feel like an idiot chatting away to yourself as people will just assume you are on a call on your mobile telephone.

You can then send the recorded file to your virtual assistant who can transcribe it into your article, newsletter or even your next training course or ebook. Imagine how much you could achieve on your next journey.

Use An Effective Diary System 0

Posted on August 13, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Do you ever forget birthdays or anniversaries or leave it far to late to purchase an appropriate gift? Ever miss the school play or sports day because you’ve double booked it with a work event you cant extricate yourself from so late in the day. Do you find yourself dashing from one end of town to the other to get to your next appointment, only to charge back to where you started from to get to the next one?

Do you think you might need to review how you handle your diary?

Do away with multiple calendars and dairies and use one diary for everything including business and personal appointments, birthdays, etc. An electronic diary works best because your virtual assistant can also update it so it is always current. You can access an electronic diary with any computer or if you are out and about using your mobile phone.

Why not give your virtual assistant instructions to alert you of any up coming birthdays or anniversaries so you have plenty of time to find an appropriate gift, or better still, let your virtual assistant research and purchase the perfect gift on your behalf and have it wrapped and delivered for you. Why not ask them to schedule your appointments for you so they can be effectively managed to save you time, stress and travel costs. While they are managing your diary, why not also ask you VA to arrange all the associated travel arrangements and hotel and restaurant bookings?

Now wouldn’t that make you feel a little less stressed and a lot more organised?

Carry A Notebook Everywhere 0

Posted on August 06, 2010 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Are you one of those people who wakes in the middle of the night in a cold sweat because you have just remembered something you simply must not forget to do tomorrow? Then when you wake you’ve forgotten it again.

Do you have your best ideas and come up with your best solutions to niggling problems when you have a bit of head space while you are commuting on a train or out for a stroll in the fresh air?

Do you suddenly remember a call you need to make only to forget again the next time you are sat by the telephone?

Get a notebook and carry it everywhere. A small, pocket sized one is all you need. Then when the thought hits you, you can write it down and relax, happy that the moment of enlightenment will not be forgotten. You can then forget about it until you are back at home or in your office where you can add what ever it was to your to-do list.
