Posted on November 26, 2021 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Do you keep in contact with your existing customers as much as you’d like to? How do you keep in the forefront of your prospects minds without constantly bombarding them with phone calls? Have you ever considered an email newsletter?

Data Entry – Classified Advert Posting 0

Posted on November 12, 2021 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.

Is Your Website At the Top of Google? 0

Posted on November 05, 2021 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Are You Answering Your Telephone? 0

Posted on October 29, 2021 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?

How Up-To-Date Is Your Web Site? 0

Posted on October 15, 2021 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

You know how it is, you spend a small fortune and a large amount of effort getting your web site up and running only for the information to become obsolete faster than you can say ‘the web site needs updating’. So you go back to the original designer who wants another small fortune for updating a few lines of text and the odd graphic, or as often happens, the designer is far too busy working on larger and more profitable projects to be concerned with making yours a priority, or worst of all, the designer has disappeared never to be seen again…

Updating your web site is actually quite straight forward, with a piece of software and your login details, your web site can be updated in minutes without any input from designers which mean that you can have up-to-date information available at all times. Now doesn’t that sound easier?

At My Virtual Assistant, we provide a Web Site Updating and Maintenance service that means you can give your web site a one-off overhaul to bring it up to date and then if appropriate let us update it regularly with new content so that your latest information is always available to your clients and prospects.

For detailed information about the latest pricing, services and packages available, please fill in your email address in the form on the top right and we will send you a link to download our latest information pack.

Online Articles – Why Give Away Your Expertise? 0

Posted on September 03, 2021 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.
