Taking a Closer Look at the Services a VA Can Do for You

By Tracey Ehman on Feb 07 2010 • Filed under Business

A VA, also known as a Virtual Assistant, can provide many services to assist you in increasing the revenue in your business or at the very least giving you some “peace of mind” and reducing your stress levels.

Many people associate virtual assistants with supplying services related to general administrative tasks, like being the first defense in the email storm, by determining the emails that need to be dealt with and responding in kind; to setting appointments; responding to voice mails, and general word processing and spreadsheet creation or modification.  There are many VAs that do provide these much needed, general administration services, and they are well worth seeking out.

But, many virtual assistants have seen that there are many things that they are taking on for their clients, or that their clients are expressing interest in, that require more specialized knowledge, and have invested in a great amount of training to provide these services to their clients.

You will now find virtual assistants that specialize in creating and supporting WordPress Blogs; setting up and integrating social media, like Twitter, FaceBook, and LinkedIn to mention a few; as well as SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and the related keyword research, and analysis.  In fact, I would suggest that if there is something that you need done, no matter how big or how small, how technical or how new the technology, contact a virtual assistant to help you achieve your goals.  Chances are, if the person you contact is not able to help you, they will be able to refer you to another virtual assistant that can – as the industry and its members support each other, to support you.  That’s what we are here for!

The following information is for information only, and does not imply endorsement. You can also find information about Virtual Assistant organizations online by doing a Google Search.

Here are two places where you can find VA’s:
