Every client wants to work with their dream virtual assistant, just as virtual assistants want to work with their dream clients. Earlier this week, I received an email from one of my newsletter subscribers wherein she shared her frustration over the past year with regards to working with virtual assistants. This is not the first time I’ve heard sad stories about working with an assistant, a web developer, writer, or any virtual support person (I have my own stories to share, but that would be for a future post). Since it’s the New Year, and you’re probably thinking whether or not you should hire a virtual assistant, I have 3 tips for you on how to work with your dream virtual assistant.
Whenever a potential client sends you an email to ask about your services, have you noticed that you end up sending more or less the same message? For example, you probably send out a link to an assessment form to pre-qualify clients, or a link to your calendar so they can book an appointment with you. Aside from copying and pasting a message template, there has to be a better way. Here’s another scenario. You received a message on LinkedIn from a potential client, but after you sent out an email, it turns out the potential client is currently on vacation and wants you to follow up by the end of the month. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to effectively manage your email, track whenever an important email was opened, or even set reminders for yourself to follow up on a specific date and time?
Whether you are launching a product, service, live event, webinar, teleseminar, or any virtual event, the first thing you will need to do is set up a squeeze page. Before I start talking about squeeze pages, let’s define what a squeeze page is because I would like to assume that there are newbies reading this post right now. A squeeze page is basically a specific web page designed to capture email addresses. So if you have an e-book that you want to give away and want people to enter their name and email address, you will need to create a squeeze page. So now we’re good right? So how do you create a squeeze page?
