DO YOU WANT TO BECOME A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT?

How2become a Virtual Assistant by Philippa Oakley

WE ARE ABOUT TO SHOW YOU HOW…

This 100+ page insider’s guide has been created by a virtual assistant industry expert. Philippa Oakley has extensive experience as a VA in the United Kingdom and within this guide she will share her insider tips and secrets … expert tuition does not get better than this!

So what exactly is a Virtual Assistant? Well, a Virtual Assistant (VA) will provide a variety of administrative support services, mainly to busy professionals, entrepreneurs and small businesses that may not have the time or budget to employ in-house staff. The majority of VAs in the UK provide generalist services, however many VAs are now moving into niche markets and providing specialist services in specific areas such as marketing, web design and social media etc.

In a nutshell, Virtual Assistants make effective use of today’s technology by working remotely, usually from home, on a self employed basis.

The opportunities within this industry have increased tenfold over recent years with the increase in the use by businesses of the internet and outsourcing agencies. This means only one thing for any aspiring VA – there are plenty of opportunities out there for you to make a decent living whilst working from the comfort of your own home.

The VA route makes good career sense for both men and women who relish the opportunity to work from home, working the hours and days they choose and for the clients that they like!

In this guide you will be provided with exercises, worksheets and templates and all the advice you need to enable you to set up your own Virtual Assistant business. If you want to be part of this industry, if you want the freedom to arrange your own working hours and your work, then this guide will show you how to become a Virtual Assistant.

This guide has been awarded our 5 Star Rating Award
