Online businesses are now modern trends to hand and to reach out services in just a matter of several clicks. The Virtual Assistance realm is one big element of these internet-based profit firms that are flexible enough to be home-based or to be in a formal office. Since this industry exploded occupying large capitalists and labor force, there goes Charles Darwin’s famous quote about his evolution rants, “Survival of the Fittest” inside this industry because of the nudging numbers of VA companies for the picky clients. The question is: How to be noticed and How to notice? (How to establish your market as a VA and how to hire a dream VA for debut business).
Here, we’ll be flying to a scenario. A scenario where along the plains of VA-Landia, two-mindsets and situations have met: a VAby (baby virtual assistant) and a BB (baby boss). Someone who has a problem in getting the attention of prospect clients at first-hand and someone who has doubts in getting a VA. Both have just got from the birth of their careers and of their options for efficiency.

Imagine these lines come across their minds:
“I want to fix you some baby cereals, but how? I’m a baby,” said the VAby.
“I’d love to, but I can’t still digest what you wished to prepare. I need, primarily, milk,” BB replied.

Don’t take me literally. I’m just putting some figures here.

To solve this crossroad dilemma of a struggling VA about what to do and a boss who has doubts on VA’s, here are some tips:

Educate yourself.

A baby’s mind is like a neat sheet of paper—spacious and vulnerable to anything that could leave a mark. The virtual assistance industry is primarily reachable through the internet. All sorts of information about it are accessible and searchable. Now, be it you as a VA or as a boss, as long as you have queries about this business, you need to be filled by the ABC’s of virtual assistance, just like any other ‘grown ups’.

Know what you could offer efficiently; know what you need badly

For VA’s, determining your limits is a good start. Focusing on what you do best and offering them to the clients is a good move. The skills you use (e.g.. Blogging, website development, telemarketing, programming, etc.) for your services should be open for updates just like any other modern device does. It keeps you to keep track of the trends, in lineage of what you do. And come to think of it: isn’t it good to stretch your limit? Learn new VA-related skills from time to time so that you can make yourself a full package of it.

For bosses, a rundown of tasks that limits you to be a hands-on CEO and a private person at the same time and the like is the safest way to know the services needed and to avoid mis-hiring a VA. Why safest? Because those services don’t come in handy if you don’t have, in the first place, some tasks to be done. From that point, you can opt for services that will continually accomplish those tasks.

Have an active online life.

Your online presence and web profile is a big thing. Prospect clients or skilled VA-to-be’s are all in their fuss to explore and be exposed for the benefit of being employed and to employ. You can flag your credentials with this human advancement, not just for VAbies but also for the BB’s. You can be very specific to what you are offering or to what you are really needing to accomplish tasks. So get out there and have an online life!

See, there are solutions to the larger problems encountered by starting VA’s and Bosses. And in that case, solutions are simple steps but needs actions to solve them. Let’s all grow up in this business!
