Hi I’m Tammy and I’ve been running my business as a Virtual Assistant for nearly the last 3 years. Being self employed and working from home is such a great pleasure for me as I learnt to make that balance between work and family. Over the past 3 years I’ve learnt things that I never expected to and I’ve had the pleasure of working with some wonderful people some of which I now consider friends too, and to think when I first started I was so worried because it took 3 months to get my first major client. Over this time I have gained valuable skills to help me assist other business owners with various aspects of their business including some marketing, in the form of WordPress Websites, Social Media & MailChimp Newsletters.
Over the last 9 months I’ve taken the time to really evaluate my business and figure out the direction I wanted to go. I came to the conclusion that I want to help start ups and those small businesses that don’t have the cash flow or the knowledge to get their business started online. So for the past 8 months I have started offering website development for those business owners that need an online presence at an affordable price. I can complete what could be a time consuming job for you for a fraction of the time and price.
All my websites are built on WordPress with an easy to use/manage theme so even you the business owner can make changes at a later date. My website packages come with basic SEO, if you provide the relevant keyword search terms I try my best to incorporate this into your website for you.
As a VA I rely a lot on networking & online channels to source work whether it be on social media or face to face. In my personal opinion you can’t be without social media and you should be using it to your advantage. A website and social media go hand in hand. If you are sharing valuable content to your followers and utilizing groups like the business community groups to drive traffic to your website you are half way there, the other half is having a good website that leads your customers to take action and this includes having the relevant call to actions (what do you want them to do when they reach your page?).
For me I had a major YAY! moment today. I completed a website for a client about a month a go, I incorporated basic SEO into his website and when I checked yesterday he has come up at least 5 times for various search terms on the first 10 pages of Google and most of the results were on page 2 or 3. To think when I started with just my own basic website 3 years ago and then in the last 8 months the amount of stuff I’ve learnt, this is something that I can definately sit back & be happy of where I am today.
TLB Admin Support has come so far in the last couple of years we have gone from starting out with that 1 client to now supporting many businesses that we either work with on an ongoing basis or as needed. We take the hassle out of having to employee someone when you need that support whether it be with your admin, website, social media or chasing those people with unpaid invoices.
I just have these questions for you. Are you happy with where your business is today? Are you doing everything you can to make sure you are being found online? As a business owner you should be doing everything you can to be at the stage where you can work On your business rather than In it. If it’s a matter of having the time as a Virtual Assistant I offer support from just 1 hour a week with no lock in contracts, giving you an opportunity to spend some time on your business.
If you would like to chat more about how you can get online or if you need some support you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with me on LinkedIn. I also have some great articles on our Facebook Page.
