Can It Help My Virtual Assistant Business?
Question: I’m a Virtual
Assistant. Can I use articles to promote my business?
Signed, Eager VA
Dear Eager VA,
Virtual Assistants are springing up all around the internet. It’s a
very viable business option and more work at home moms are jumping
on the bandwagon every day. The real go-getters will whip up a
“business card” website right away with their contact information,
‘about me’ information, and their rates and services offered.
But, then that website sits and collects dust while they wait for
the traffic to roll in. So, what’s a Virtual Assistant to do to
generate traffic to their website?
Oftentimes VAs overlook one of the best methods of marketing their
websites – article writing. Virtual Assistants can write about all
kinds of topics – how to organize emails, customer service, hiring
or firing a VA, ways a VA can benefit a business, or accounting
among other things. Then, they can share the articles, just like any
other website owner to drive traffic to their websites and establish
an expert status in their field.
If you’re a VA who’s new to article sharing, it’s actually quite
easy. You write a helpful article and include your author bio at the
end. (See the end of this article as an example.) Then, you submit
your article to Article Directories where hungry website owners,
blog owners and ezine publishers eagerly grab your article to
publish it on their sites.
Now, there is stiff competition so it’s not quite that easy, but
that’s the gist of how article sharing works. And, you know it works
because you’re reading my article that I’ve written and shared with
article directories. There’s my URL in the author bio and you’ve
found my article because someone has published it on their website,
blog or in their newsletter. If it works for me, it can work for
Article sharing is underutilized in the Virtual Assistant field and
I hope to see that change in the coming year. Go grab that free
traffic and grow your VA business. Not only will your VA business
grow, but you can share this method of marketing with your clients
and blow them away with your knowledge of internet marketing. Best
