What is a Virtual Project Manager?

Ever wish there were more hours in the day? Somehow the days just fly right by in what seems like a few seconds.  You try to accomplish all your work each day, yet your hands remain full and you still have a mountain of work to get through. You dream of someone who could take a few projects off your hands and give you more free time to concentrate on generating new revenue. But just who is that someone?

You work remotely, so you need someone who is also remote, but who should you hire? 

If you hire the wrong person for the job, you are only going to create extra work for yourself, and that is not what you were intending to do. So, to clear it up, allow me to explain what a virtual project manager is and how they could make your life so much simpler.

In a nutshell:

  • A virtual project manager is brought on when you have a project that needs managing. They specialise in overseeing projects, from conception, through to final delivery. You tell them what your project is and they plan it, put timelines in place, set deliverables and create the to-do list.

Essentially a virtual project manager oversees entire projects from start to finish.

So, wouldn’t you love to dive in and see how this can benefit you?

Hiring a virtual project manager could save you so much time in the long run, freeing you up to focus on the bigger, more important tasks, and better yet – allow you the time to seek out new business to further generate revenue.  But before you hire someone, you have to determine what you require of them first.

Work out exactly what tasks you will need them to carry out, because it might be that you don’t need them all day, every day. You might just need them for specific jobs.

The easiest way to do this is:

  • Note down everything you do over a day, or a week (even better).
  • Establish what tasks fall out that you don’t have time for, but need doing.
  • Establish what larger, non-business essential, but vital to successful operations, tasks you are not completing, but need to do, to ensure continued smooth sailing.

Don’t rule out any task as being too big or too small. Every virtual project manager has a specific skill set that you can harness, but is also pretty versatile and well-rounded. 

Once you know what tasks you want your virtual project manager to handle, you will see how much time you’ll free up for yourself. 

Virtual project managers have been a proven success for many business owners such as: Website Developing Companies, Social Media Management Companies, Food Prep Companies, Marketing Affiliate Companies, Computer Services Companies, Financial Investment Firms, Insurance Companies, Health Service Offices, Legal Firms, and, surprisingly, even places like local gym centers, fabric stores, construction companies, and salons & spas utilize virtual project managers to help with their marketing and website management programs.

Content Marketing: Value = Success

Fact here: I dread marketing…especially content marketing! 

I guess it’s because I don’t have that natural ability to shout out, “Hey World look at this awesome idea that I think you NEED. Click here now or you’ll forever feel regret!”  Don’t get me wrong, if it were that easy, I’d strap my marketing boots up and march on!

Content Marketing – what in the world is it? I literally asked myself this 2 years ago almost exactly! So I attended a marketing seminar.  I never felt more out of my element and I was the ONLY virtual assistant there!  The definitive end result: content marketing equals value.  [Light bulb moment!]  Value…this is exactly what I need!  Foundations are built by values and value builds businesses! 

I’d like to say I ran right out and built those values and became a content guru. Not even close…it would be another year or two!

Starting a business for yourself is no joke; that is, assuming you want to be successful.  Recognizing the importance of marketing and knowing how to market your business is critical to either making the line or breaking the line.  We are now in the day and age where blogging is one of the most useful tools in marketing.  And it’s NOT a one-page wham bam thank you ma’am done!  Nope! With the ever-changing search engine analytics, it’s imperative to blog at a minimum of once a month so that you stand a chance in Google’s ranks! [SEO, Google and I have a love/hate, sometimes utterly volatile relationship]

Content marketing shows an opportunistic idea from a different angle so the recipient sees the value from a perspective they never considered before.  It can be a graphic piece, a webpage, a podcast, video, book, app, or a presentation.  It brings awareness to a problem without an intentional sale. This awareness leads to research, which then leads to comparison, and, finally, to the decisive solution. Bata-Bing-Bata-Boom! This is when you celebrate…but don’t forget, it’s a continual repeated process.

That’s it! It’s all about developing valuable solutions to your targeted audience so you can continue to build your business for success. 

Don’t have time to handle content marketing?  Reach out and ask me how you can automate your content marketing program.  Or drop me a line on how you overcame the marketing jitters and became a marketing genius!  I love hearing everyone’s journey!

10 Industries That Profit From Using A Virtual Assistant

Trades That Hire Virtual Assistants

With the speed of today’s internet, communications are readily available at our hands: email, chat, voice call, video – all widely available.  Numerous industries today are benefiting from this. The biggest benefactors are those that utilize the virtual assistant industry.  By outsourcing projects to virtual assistants, corporations have discovered a huge savings on their business overhead.  The cost of office space, equipment, and employee benefits are no longer needed.

Virtual assistants are skilled in the specific areas that companies hire them for – no more training!  (win, win!)  Coupled with the evolving technology and available communication platforms, this specific skill set allows the virtual assistant to work with various industries across the globe, which is why corporate conglomerates need and hire them.

Here are the top industries:

Marketing Firms

Marketing firms that focus on strategizing and promoting brands for business corporations need a virtual assistant to help them formulate ideas and handle tasks, such as social media management, content creation, data analytics, and customer support.  A virtual assistant who has a creative talent with excellent use of language would excel greatly here!

Real Estate Agencies

As an ever growing and evolving business, a Real Estate Agent continually relies on broadening their name and reputation in order to acquire the sales they need to bring in revenue. Real Estate Agents have turned to virtual assistants in order to manage the broad scope of marketing and managing clients sufficiently.  REVA as they’re called – a Real Estate Virtual Assistant – can manage social media accounts, post media ads, maintain continual customer support, and fast-track the paper trail from open to close on the sale of a new property.

Law Firms

Attorneys and their firms deal with a plethora of paperwork and client phone calls!  This all can be highly time-consuming.  A legal virtual assistant lessens the workload by handling filing, data entry, reports, email management, calendar management and client communications.

Accounting Firms and Finance Firms

Accounting and Finance are one of the most sought-after industries, which means society needs these services on the regular!  A virtual assistant with a background in this arena is a godsend to most Advisors and CPAs.  From handling bookkeeping, reports, and invoicing to managing the calendars and emails are just a few of the tasks many seek to have taken off their plate! 

Travel Agencies

Similar to the Real Estate Agent, a Travel Agent looks to evolve through the use of marketing themselves.  A virtual assistant skilled in branding and SEO can take a Travel Agent from small to big quickly!  Many Travel Agents hire a virtual assistant to assist them with marketing, customer communications, or travel planning.

Tech Companies

Continuously improving and changing so fast, Tech companies (IT firms as they are sometimes referred to) are increasing rapidly.  Tech companies hire virtual assistants with skills specializing in web design, graphic design, website content creation, coding, and funneling, just to name a few.  Any VA proficient in the use of new platforms and is tech savvy –  a tech guru per se – are highly sought out in this industry.

Online Retail Shops

With the explosion of online sales on the rise, there is a need for retail shops to hire virtual assistants.  As shops increase in customers, revenue and size, virtual assistants skilled in detail and customer service can be hired to handle customer inquiries, returns, the online retail platform, or marketing. 

Call Center Companies

As companies increase in size, they find themselves needing to hire trained individuals to handle client inquires.  Call Centers now hire virtual assistants skilled in communication and excellent verbal and written language skills to work as a Customer Care Representative.  

SEO Agencies

SEO services are a BIG trend these days, and rightly so!  If you want to stand out from the general populace, you need to brand yourself.  Virtual Assistants who are skilled with SEO have hired by SEO Agencies to manage social media accounts and their advertising of each platform (Facebook Ads, Instagram posts, LinkedIn Ads, Pinterest, Twitter).  This includes creating the company’s branding, article content, and website blogs as well.

Recruitment Agencies

In the dog-eat-dog world of today, corporations are seeking individuals with specific qualifications in order to help them niche down so they can stand out.  Recruitment Agencies are using virtual assistants to screen qualified applicants during the selection process. 

The Conclusion

The virtual assistant industry consists of expertly skilled and trained individuals that complete the job efficiently – allowing businesses, corporations, and entrepreneurs the benefit of a huge PROFIT – a savings of time, money and stress! 

Are you profiting yet? 

So, Why Do I Need a Virtual Assistant For My Business?

You’re an entrepreneur and you’ve recently started your new business gig.  It’s taken off beyond your expectations and, to your great surprise, now you find yourself swamped with client queries and buried chest deep in the dreaded mundane administrative work: data entry, bookkeeping, loads of paperwork, emails pinging in left and right. You now find that you have zero time to focus on the main operations and corporate decision making of your business – the part you originally began the business doing and love (and let’s not mention the zero personal life you now have).

So what are you to do?  This is where a Virtual Assistant would come in very handy to you.  Businesses can save up to $11,000 per employee yearly by outsourcing the mundane administrative tasks to a Virtual Assistant [source].

Not only are VA’s economical and make perfect sense financially, but also they can offer professional business-grade services that help you become less stressed, more successfully focused, and give you back that personal life.

One of the great reasons to work with a Virtual Assistant is the flexibility; your new business may need to scale resources up and down based on performance.  Working with a VA is the perfect strategy solution for when the need arises, they are just a phone call or email away from helping you!

You likely have little time for onboarding staff– a professional VA can effortly align with your needs immediately.  Establishing a working relationship with a particular VA can allow you the freedom from time-consuming integration and guarantee you with accurate and consistent results.  VA’s are used to having high important tasks outsourced to them occasionally.

Virtual Assistants can help your business with the overflow.  From handling data entry and bookkeeping to event planning and calendar management, a VA can get your tasks done without you having the overhead of employee staff.
