Is It Time To Hire a Virtual Assistant?

Starting a new website can be especially overwhelming. In addition to learning to create great content, you also need to learn site organization, maintenance, email marketing, social media, SEO, etc. etc. etc. There are dozens of resources, coaches, and courses you can take to perfect your practices over time {and I think you should!}. But when you’re just starting out, it’s a whole lot to learn all at once. A virtual assistant can help.

A Note About Timing

Many people initially try to go at it alone. They wait until profits are rolling in and they “know what they’re doing” to start seeking out connections. Instead, I encourage you to consider a virtual assistant as an entry-level service, not something for “down the road” when you’re established. As a new business you often need more support in the beginning than you will later.

The best part? I’m happy to jump in at any point of your journey. Maybe you already have your logo and website up and running, but are stuck on the next steps. That’s why I allocate time each month for additional projects beyond initial set up.

When you choose to work with me, you get a whole lot more than a shiny new logo and website; you get a virtual business bestie. My focus isn’t just a “one and done” job. Instead, my passion is to work with small businesses and first-time site owners to develop a complete digital marketing plan. I truly want to get to know you, your business, and your goals.

Virtual Assistant Service Examples

  • email marketing (setting up MailChimp, ConvertKit, LeadPages etc., opt-in forms, subscriber pop-ups)
  • website maintenance (plugins, security, backups, redirects, css changes)
  • SEO (site organization, analytics)
  • graphic work (background packs, quote images, Pinterest images, product covers, ebook design)

Custom To You

If you need help with a one-time project, I can do that. As examples, I have helped clients design ebooks or prepare materials for a specific event only.

However the real magic happens when we work together over time. I provide a discounted hourly rate for clients who are on annual support plans. This is especially helpful when you use my graphic design services. The more we work together, the faster I work and the more you can get out of each hour because I learn your style preferences and spend less time creating each graphic.

My annual plans start at a single hour per month, for twelve consecutive months. Some of my clients purchase a single hour each month for their ongoing needs and others purchase multiple hours per month; the choice is totally up to you and how much assistance you need.

Additional Benefits

Collaboration. When we work together, you have someone to help you bounce ideas around. I work with my clients to select the perfect verbiage, choose between stock photos, find the font for their vision, define their target audience, etc.

I talk my husband’s ear off about my business, website, marketing plans, etc. While I love him dearly, he isn’t really the best choice because this is way out of his wheelhouse.

Efficiency. It’s important to know your area of expertise and passion. When you hire help, it lets you focus your time on doing the things you enjoy, as well as the things only you can do. You can spend hours figuring it out yourself, or you can hand that task over and take it off your list.

As an example, of course I can shop for my own groceries but I order grocery pickup instead. Then I can spend that same time I would have been at the store on my business, where I earn more per hour than I pay for the pick up service. Your time is valuable!

Increase profit. Consistent, quality work makes a difference in your income. Pinterest traffic increases when you use more appealing (and appropriately sized!) images, or your audience grows when they engage with your opt-ins and join your targeted list.

Next Steps

If you’re interested in working with me as your virtual assistant, you can learn more here. Or send me a message and we’ll discuss your needs. Many of my on-going clients started with just a single hour of my time or a single project and then evolved to one of my regular virtual clients.

I really don’t know if I can put into words how grateful I am! When I was a brand new blogger trying to get my business off the ground, she delivered! She is insanely easy to work with, highly-talented, and a true professional. I cannot recommend her enough.

Working with Christi was an absolute dream. She was prompt, responsive, and incredibly helpful for a client who is largely uncomfortable with web and graphic design. She made me feel comfortable asking questions, and handled suggested revisions with welcome input and ease.

I have hired Christi, over a number of years, to design various projects, from rebranding to blog design. She truly is my go-to designer. She knows what questions to ask, always communicates promptly and professionally and is infinitely patient throughout the process.

Working with Christi has saved me so much time and frustration. If you are debating if it’s worth the money like I was, I’m in the other side of it to say it was worth every penny. I highly recommend her and plan to use her services again.
