VA Tips to A Successful Career
There are so many things that you must not forget in general to be a successful virtual assistant. Some might sound like very simple, but in a virtual world, VA tips are definitely a must!
You have to get in touch with your client as many times as you can. – I am telling you, I myself as VA, firmly believe that consistent and constant communication with your client is indeed a must. Remember, it is not a tough job to keep e-mailing them. By communicating with them constantly, you will be sure that you are on the right track. For example, there’s follow-up instruction or changes on the project given to you, you will be updated. Do not forget that if you think your time is worth, so your clients are. Ignoring them is actually tantamount to losing the job.
As much as possible, do not use too casual names like email@example.com. It is better if you prefer choosing your last name that will go this way firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can even get a private domain name that would be a better idea. You will appear most like “professional” to your future clients.
Should A VA need to have a resume?
Although there are debates whether virtual assistant needs a resume or curriculum vitae or not anymore, it is not a bad idea to have one. Some Vas believe that they are considered as self-employed. So they need not to submit a resume. But remember, the bottom line is, if the client demands it, you would have no choice but to provide it.
