How Having a BRD Virtual Assistant (VA) Can Increase Your Bottom Line…
Okay, so we’ve talked about smart ways to increase leads, SEO, website security and lead magnets. Now, let’s combine all those efforts together to talk about the help you may need in order to follow through with all those business goodies and how to get it done.
A virtual assistant (VA) is quite a popular option these days to getting the help you need without breaking the bank. You can hire them on a per project basis or on retainer and don’t have to worry about all the extra costs of benefits, paid sick time, vacation days, and so on. Because as a business owner, you have a lot to take care of and some of those tasks/projects may either be out of your realm of expertise or things you just plainly don’t have the time (or patience) for. Like social media for instance. A necessary evil.
It’s time for you to gain more time to spend on making money instead of creating your social media calendar and spending countless hours posting to all of your platforms/groups.
You can do anything but not everything.
– David Allen, Productivity Consultant
The overall benefit of working with a VA is the time you get back.
And as an entrepreneur, time is your #1 resource. Think of it this way … the more time you have, the more time you can dedicate to other more important tasks/projects that will actually generate revenue.
Yes, dolla-dolla bills y’all!
Now you may be having that heart-wrenching feeling that comes along with letting go of this type of project, but the bottom line is … if you want to automate this stuff properly, you will need to hire a VA and provide them with access to your social media profiles and accounts for whatever project you may need help with.
Once that process is out of the way, it is very important to give your VA an orientation on how you usually handle social media on your own (share your social media schedule, graphics, content, videos, etc.) then provide them details on how you’d like to move forward with your online goals. What you end game is.
I bet by now, you’re wondering what kinds of social media tasks you can delegate to a VA …?
Here’s how to get the ball rolling:
- Research and content drafting (within each platforms character counts).
– This would also include finding quotes, shareable links, images, etc.
- Creating/maintaining your social media schedule
– This would include creating content and posting content
- Engagement with your audience.
– This would also include monitoring your post comments, likes, shares, etc.
- Managing your network and helping it grow.
– Keeping your platforms up-to-date and spam free.
- Keeping up with analytics.
– Helping you increase your following which will then turn into increases leads.
- Advertising Management.
– Facebook ads, boosted posts, LinkedIn ads, you name it …!
Until you’re working with a VA of your very own, you can’t even begin to imagine the freedom you will have when you stop spending countless hours on social media every single day. And of course, every entrepreneur’s strategy will be different than the next when it comes to going viral with their social media management. But if you clearly define EXACTLY what it is you are trying to achieve and set your goals and guidelines accordingly you should see measurable results in no time.
