Where is the best place to advertise for Virtual Assistant Services?
I have recently set up a virtual assistance company with a team of 5 virtual assitance who can do literally anything which is web based or pc based. The problem, where do i advertise and how do i market for this service. How do find clients?
Marketing is key to your service, as with any business. As you’re geared for working on the web and with PC’s, make full use of the internet for marketing. Make sure your site is optimised for the search engines. Become involved in sites/blogs/directories that relate to your target market.
Networking groups are a good way of meeting business people who need help with the things that a Virtual Assistant can do.

What is the greatest obstacle to finding an internet marketing mentor?
One of the things that the majority of folks most often misunderstand about finding an internet mentor to help them out is they tend to think they have to pay enormous sums of money for a consultant, a coaching program or some other such thing…do you find this to be the case?
There are really two sides to this coin with a variety of hungry vultures hanging out on each.
Ever hear the old adage that you get what you pay for? To a certain extent it’s true. However, you will indeed find many sites that offer free advice. The problem is, unless your a smart Internet Marketer your not going to know the good advice from the bad. What’s worse, since you are needing the advice it’s likely that you have not gained all the wisdom you are looking for yet. This ends up being a vicious circle with no real end.
That’s why SEO & Beyond provides a free website analysis for anyone who asks (at least they do as of this writing). They believe that doing so goes beyond advice into actively participating in the lives of those who are looking to use their service.
You can check out more about that at the following link.
I was quite pleased with the review they gave my http://commit2fit.info website.
If you are going to have someone train you to be a successful Internet Marketer, then find someone willing to give you some type of guarantee.
“If our system doesn’t work for you, then you don’t pay a dime!”
It’s a gutsy approach to be sure. But it goes beyond the idea of pay us all your money and you will be a success approach. With this method you don’t know if you are being sucker punched or not and all you have to show for it in the end will be absolutely nothing.
I do know that there are indeed many people out there willing to provide a ton of advice if you pay them. I don’t know if anyone has the guts to work by the above approach. If I did I would probably sign up for their course in a second. When paying for a mentor or what not the heavy burden for success should be on the shoulders of the one providing the assistance rather than the one paying the bill.
Pay for a mentor if and only if the mentor believes in their services enough to give you an awesome guarantee otherwise stick with the free advice; or better yet free website reviews.
