This is the first module of the Virtual Assistant Course


There are numerous ways you can earn from home and one of the easiest ways is to become a virtual assistant. This job is easy to setup and there is no limit to how much you can make. This is the Virtual Assistant Course – Module 1, I will publish other modules every week. Learn more on the EARN FROM HOME page.

At this stage we will identify your readiness to start a VA business.

What you need

  1. A dedicated note book

Answer the following questions in your notebook

  1. What exactly is your industry? E.g. dressmaking? Legal? Digital marketing? Makeup? Events? Catering? Baking? Etc
  2. Why do you want to become a VA?
  3. What skills do you have?
  4. Do you mind working with your competitors to help them sell better and manage their businesses more efficiently?
  5. Can you comfortably make use of a laptop/desktop computer?
  6. How many hours a day can you commit to VA work?
  7. For how long (days, weeks, months) are you ready to be consistent in marketing your business with or without clients?
  8. Do you have a safety net ( e.g. other means of income, supportive friends or family, etc ) that you can fall back on if you don’t get client on time or if your business fails?
  9. What/who is a virtual assistant?

    I was thinking about becoming VA myself, but having part time job and University for now made me decide to put it away in time, but its definitely great job !

      Thanks! A virtual assistant basically uses her skills to provide services from a remote location.Skills such as accounting, customer service, business management, etc.

    • I will revoke the link by 5.50pm. Admission is free.
    • Please tell me why you don't blog and I will tell you why you should.

One of the reasons that concerns you as a business owner or professional is that blogging is an avenue that you can use to show your expertise.

People would feel more comfortable to patronize you when you come across as someone who knows what she is doing. And one of the ways to come across as such person is to blog about your business.

Would you like to start a blog for your business?

Why have you not started? 
Tell me in the comments or send a DM.
    • You hear about audience targeting almost everyday: write for your audience, use hashtags, pick a niche, etc. The question now is how to go about audience targeting. I will answer this in my next post and I will use myself as an avatar (target audience). To gain full value from this upcoming post, I want you to take a pen and notepad and jot down who you think your target audience is.

See you soon.
    • #blogpostalert I explained a bit about what it takes to get to the top of Google in my new blog post, check it out via link in bio.
    • Content marketing is majorly about using information to attract prospects to your business. Note the word prospect. What this means is that the content should be meant for your target market, not just anyone. It will make sense to only those who need your offer, not everyone. To achieve this, you need to define your audience (avatar), find out their problems, then solve it with valuable information which they are able to relate with.

My DM is always open if you need me to further break this down for you.

In one of my coming posts, I would present myself as an avatar and we will play a game where you comment how your business can be of value to me.
