Virtual Assistant Course – Module 2

May 30, 2018 No Comments

ATTEND THE BEYOND SOCIAL MEDIA OFFLINE EVENT

We are gradually making progress with this course. Thanks to all participants, I feel encouraged.

The second module of this course is niche discovery and we’ve treated it partially in the break down of Module 1. If you missed it, go here to register for this course, take the first module, and I will aslo send you the worksheet andΒ  suggested answers to each question in the Module.

What we will be doing in this Module is just to shed light on niche discovery and why it’s essential for anyone looking to become a virtual assistant.

What is a niche?

Dictionary.com defines niche as a comfortable or suitable position in life or employment.

The above definition is perfect for describing niche in a virtual assistance business.

First of all, you need to be comfortable with using typical work tools such as a computer system and productivity tools.

There are several apps and tools for several skillset and industries. You need to really look at all the options available and match them to your skillset.

E.g. If you know how to design websites using templates from content management systems such as WordPress, that’s a skill. The next thing you should do is match your skill to design apps such as Canva and image editing tools such as Lunapic, etc.

With the above, you will be able to position yourself as a virtual assistant who designs websites using WordPress. This is your niche and it’s quite different from being a programmer who codes websites from scratch.

As you can see, both of you are into building websites but with different skillset.

Of course, you don’t have to remain in your comfort zone. You should expand your skillset by all means and learn new things everyday.

In the world of virtual assisting, the more skills you have coupled with the more experience you gain, the more rewarding it becomes.

Exercise

  • In your notebook, list your skills and match them to work tools using the example I gave above to find your niche
  • Refer to the worksheet in Module 1 and match your niche to industry(ies) you would like to serve.
  • Write down a rough pitch. E.g. I help event planners create beautiful websites that convert.
  • Go ahead and match more of your skill set with work tools.
  • Hit the reply button to send me your skill set and rough pitch so we can smoothen them together.

See you next week with Module 3.

  • 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.
