HOW TO START YOUR JOURNEY AS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

You're going to want to SAVE this for later!⁠

Here are 4 steps to starting your Virtual Assistant business 💻⁠

⭐️ Identify your skills and establish your pricing⁠

These will become your services! Once you've established your services, take some time to really sit with your pricing. (P.S. Don't forget to account for convenience fees and taxes in your pricing.) Don't stress too much, because you can always come back to this and expand or niche down your services and increase your pricing!⁠

⭐️ Build a portfolio ⁠

You may not have this right away and that's okay! You can provide complimentary services on a short term basis, while you're starting out and building your portfolio! Make sure that your portfolio includes client testimonials. ⁠

⭐️ Create an online presence⁠

Marketing yourself comes with the territory. In the virtual space especially, it's important to show up online and show people that you're a real person. People love to put a face with a name, so make sure you're showing up where it counts. Check out my post from January 6 to see my thoughts on what social channels you should use.⁠

⭐️ Search for your first client ⁠

Between Fiverr, LinkedIn and the rest of the internet, you can search for your first client or project. I always encourage small business owners to leverage their own network when starting out. Ask your family and friends to spread the word to their own networks. It's all about who you know!⁠
