Everything you Need to
Grow, and Market
ROCK Your At-Home Virtual Assistant
Those clients who are supposed to magically fall from the sky because you're open for business ... where are they?
Back in 2005, when I started my business, I admit I thought that's what would happen. But it was a grind, man. I was undercharging, attracting non-ideal clients, and I had the classic Field of Dreams attitude about being a VA ("if you build it, they will come").
I was making no money, doing work I didn't really want to do, for clients who didn't appreciate me. I was burning the candle at both ends - miserable but determined to be successful. I remember thinking, if only someone would tell me what to do so that I can make this VA thing work!
But the program I wanted just didn't exist.
So, I had to find success the hard way. I spent a fortune, enrolling myself in every single marketing plan I could get my hands on. I read every marketing book, took every seminar, and made every mistake I possibly could.
It was a pretty long, hard, mostly uphill climb, but I made it.
I figured out how to find my ideal clients, how to charge what I'm worth, and how to not work myself into the ground.
And because I'm a kind, compassionate (entrepreneurial) person, I thought to myself, HEY! I can now create that program I wish had existed when I was starting out.
The VA Business Essentials Program is the ONLY training program out there that incorporates information on how to start and market a VA business to your IDEAL clients and comes with a steaming-hot side dish of personal support.
Whether you want to...
Find your Ideal Clients
I have been working with high-end clients for years.
Remember those old 3D posters from the 90's, where you had to squint at a geometric pattern for a week before that crazy shape would hop out at you and then once you could finally see it, you could see it easily every time you glanced at the picture?
Ya. Finding your ideal client is like that! Once you know how to find them, you can get them every time! I can tell you where to find the great clients and what it takes to be in high demand. I will also show you what clients REALLY want, how to differentiate yourself and be client attractive, how to set boundaries and manage difficult clients, and how to increase the value per client so you can make more money. Cha-ching.
Earn a Higher Income
Charge by the hour?
Or create a retainer contract?
Price your services by a block of hours?
Or price them by value?
What should you charge?
Can you say pricing paralysis? Enough of this number-crunching and you may just decide to give up and just keep doing what you've always done. This program takes you through the crazy maze of what to charge and how to price so that you make moolah.
Get Your Business Off the Ground
If you are stuck in analysis paralysis and haven't pulled the trigger on your business yet, this is the PERFECT program! I provide you a step-by-step weekly planner with things to do and decisions to make, but best of all, what you need and don't need (no one needs to break the bank here!). In order to get your business out to the world, you just have to get started. And my handy 6-week planner will be your guide.
Get Ongoing Help
Buy the program once and get ongoing help via my private Facebook Group (yes, you read that right - ONGOING HELP). I will be in the group cheering you on and giving you answers and support. Even if you don't think you'll need this now, you are going to encounter a slew of things you aren't sure how to handle as you grow your business. This little feature is probably going to be the most valuable part of this entire program.
I will show you how to make your website client attractive so that you can stop attracting tire-kickers, freebie seekers, and pick-your-brainers. You know... those who want everything for nothing. Marketing is NOT negotiable! If you don't market, no one will know who you are and what you offer, and those clients NEED to find you!
Learn Ninja Marketing Strategies
I will show you my ninja tricks that I've spent thousands of dollars to learn. Everything from list-building strategies and creating a marketing funnel to the basics of search engine optimization and my favorite time-saving productivity tools. I'll share my knowledge because that's the kind of gal I am.
Learn from the best.
I created this program because it's the program I wish I had when I was starting out. I sat there for months after I started my business wondering when these creative and fascinating people were going to hire me? Where were they hiding?
I know now that the problem wasn't ME. The problem was that I wasn't letting people know how I could help THEM. Once I figured that out, business boomed. I learned how to market in a way that I was attracting ideal clients - not the demanding ones or the ones who want you to do everything on the cheap so they can grow THEIR business on your hard work. (Ya, that happens a lot.)
Since then, I moved on to become an online business manager and ultimately a marketing and automation specialist. Business has changed, and I have finally achieved financial success, but more important, I enjoy the total freedom, flexibility, and portability this lifestyle brings. If you are a fellow milspouse, you know how important that is! And that's what I want for you - to help you find whatever it is that you are looking to achieve with your business
Here are the Virtual Assistant Business Essentials
Program Training Modules
You Get Instant Access to Everything When You Sign Up!
Module 1 - Setting the Foundation
To get started, you're going to map out your business using a VA Business Roadmap.
In Module 1 we go over Setting the Foundation for your VA Business. There are many things to do, many decisions to make, and I want to make sure you cover your bases without breaking the bank. You'll learn why most VAs don't finish launching their business (trust me, this will not be you!), types of legal business structures and which one may be the best for you. Also, what you need to know about licenses, permits and other financial matters. But the jewel of Module 1, and what you will be using to map out your business, is my 45-day planner in which I break things down, what you need to do, week by week.
Module 2 - Marketing and Online Presence
Choosing your market will set the platform for many of the things you'll do in your business and it will guide your marketing plan
Module 2 is Marketing and Online
Presence. Choosing your market will set
the platform for many of the things you'll
do in your business and it will guide your
marketing plan. No one said it would be
easy, but don't worry I'm here with you
every step of the way.
Lessons include choosing your market, marketing strategies, attracting ideal clients, and I even show you do's and don'ts so that you don't make common marketing mistakes. Once you finish this module, you'll have a huge piece of your business structure and plan finished.
Module 3 - Money, Rates & Pricing
Many VAs are surprised to learn that they have a choice when it comes to setting their rates.
In Module 3, we talk about Money, Rates,
and Pricing. Many VAs are surprised to learn
that they have a choice when it comes to setting
their rates. Many of them think it's a foregone
conclusion that they will charge by the hour and
have built their revenue models around this fact
- but once I show them the different pricing
models, they get really excited about the
prospect of making more money while working the
same amount of time!
My goal is to have every VA do what she wants to be doing and be paid handsomely for it. If you think that your role is relegated to making less than your clients, think again because I'm going to show you that it is possible to have a lucrative career as a VA.
Module 4 - Working with Clients
It's now time to actually get out there and get clients!
This is my favorite part of the course
because now that you have the foundation set
up, general idea of your marketing plan,
rates all ready to go and a plan of action
on that, it's now time to actually get out
there and get clients. As you can imagine
it's the scariest part for many VAs at least
I know it's that way for me when I was
Module 4 goes over all things Clients. How to attract them, where to find them, how to work with them. I go into great detail about how to build your Ideal Client Profile, where to find clients that are most ideal for you, how to do an effective client intake and consultation, and I even give advice on dealing with problem clients. Trouble with setting boundaries with your clients? This will never be a problem again after you finish this module.
