Have you started your online business but feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to do all the daily operating tasks that need to be done as well as marketing your site? It’s not easy and certainly not a one-person job, which is why you might consider a virtual executive assistant to help you with all those daily tasks you struggle to carry out. Moreover, many of these assistants are also trained in Internet marketing, so you can make this part of their job duties and get two benefits that can truly help grow your business.
The virtual executive assistant is a relatively new career field that many people have begun to follow because it allows them to work from their home office and not have to fight daily traffic getting to and from a traditional secretarial job. In addition, because the virtual secretary is still being fine-tuned since it is such a new position, it allows people to branch out from secretarial work to marketing and other more interesting ventures that were simply not available working in an office setting.
For companies, hiring a virtual executive assistant or using them as a contractor is an effective way to save money. Many online companies have assistants that work all over the world and often these people never meet face-to-face thanks to the amazing technological tools available today. By having them do marketing, they can help boost traffic to your website and even begin target marketing; getting traffic to your site that was specifically targeted and looking for the product or service you are selling.
A Virtual Executive Assistant can handle newsletters, another great marketing tool, in addition to their other duties. And don’t forget about social media, these avenues are an excellent free way to get traffic to your site. Your assistant can set up a Facebook page and of course, have a link back to your website. You can have your assistant update the page daily so that it is always active and professional. Before long, you will see an increased flow of traffic, more sales, and you will wonder how you ever got along without your new Virtual Assistant.
Finally, do your homework when selecting a Virtual Executive Assistant to work with your company. Many experienced virtual assistants will have a standard fee, so keep this in mind when you are hunting for someone who can assist you in growing your online business.
