    MailChimp is my choice for email marketing and newsletters. Not only is it free to get started but the sky is the limit when it comes to designing an email template with their template editor. And MailChimp offers a never-ending list (it seems) of integrations. I’ll go through a few basic integrations that I use.

    Facebook is a simple yet effective way to promote your business as it allows you the opportunity to reach billions of people with the click of a button. The goal of any business is to make money but to do that you have to convert your fans into customers. This isn’t as difficult as it sounds, though. Here are 10 different ways to maximize the potential of your social media following. 1. Offer a FREE sample to your friends on Facebook if they SHARE your post/video to their list of friends.

From the car you drive to the smartphone you use to send out emails, modern inventions and advances heavily influence how you work.

    We can all agree that Google is the largest search engine on the web right? But do you know what the second largest is? If you guessed YouTube (which is actually owned by Google) then you are one smart cookie! Videos are being searched and viewed more than ever nowadays. And as an SEO specialist let me tell you it’s 100 times easier to get to the top of the search engines with a YouTube video than trying to optimize your website to rank high in the search engine results pages. Which makes me wonder why aren’t we doing more videos as VAs??? Just do a search for the phrase “Virtual…

It made me start asking myself why are people not opening my emails? Was it because I spent most of my educational period in highschool English class in the detention room for skipping class?

For others however time off inspires you to get back to work and be productive. For whatever reason, when you work from home as a Virtual Assistant, it’s easy to fall into a rut don’t you agree? You get up in the morning, get your coffee, head to your office and start your day. It’s easy to lose enthusiasm for the day and thus lose a bit of energy and productivity. The good news is that…

So don’t panic if you get them, you’re not alone. People unsubscribe for a number of reasons. They could simply be spring cleaning their mailbox and you’re unfortunately one of those who were let go. Or they just don’t like your content anymore, which could be a big blow to your brand.

    The weekend usually presents an opportunity to grab some relaxation; you spend time with family, do some sports, and maybe grab a drink with friends. You’re still available for work calls and check in quickly to emails a few times if needed, but the majority of your weekend is to get a bit of a...

    How many texts or emails have you sent in the past year that excused your lateness? An occasional slip here and there happens; we don’t live in a perfect world. Traffic arrives, tyres get punctures, and perhaps the dog really did eat your report. However, if these excuses and more are occurring on a regular...

    “All watches tell time. This one helps you make the most of it.”   This was declared by Apple about the release of their new and innovative smartwatch. Business owners and entrepreneurs want to ensure their time is maximised down to the second, so it makes sense that the one thing that tells them whether...

    When you travel frequently for business, it is likely that your computer isn’t going to see the light of day very much. Meeting after meeting. Conference to workshop. Late night business exchanges over drinks. These activities – though very important – can often neglect the one thing that connects what you’re actually there for…your work....

    Whether you consider yourself a creative person or not, the so-called ‘creative block’ can happen to anyone. Imagination is used when coming up with a new marketing strategy, ways to find a new business partner, a proposal for a client, or planning a company workshop from A to Z, as well as by the stereotypically...

  • Are Emojis Part Of Your Visual Marketing Strategy

    I was tweeting away and noticed an ad from Chevrolet with the hashtag #chevygoesemoji. There was a gif, so of course it caught my attention. Now I’m not a Chevy fan or very much into cars at all BUT this whole #chevygoesemoji was intriguing to me. So I started researching it and found this article, “Chevrolet’s All-Emoji Press Release”. I must say I was pretty dumbfounded because there was no reading the press release at all. It was completely in “emoji” language. Now if you’re not sure what emoji really means, here’s the Oxford Dictionary meaning. You’ve probably seen these…

    When you meet someone for the first time and you find out their story connects with you. Isn’t it such a wonderful feeling to feel that emotional connection? You may not know them entirely but when you first meet a person you can pretty much tell if that’s the type of person you’d want to hang out with. The same thing goes online… well you may not meet the person face to face but you get to know people with their website, their blog, their social media posts, etc. All of the online aspects of someone’s life can be put together rather quickly and people can decide if they want to…

    There are 2.4 Million users in Canva at the moment and it will only increase. Who are the users? You, me, and a boatload (really big boats) of entrepreneurs trying to make an impression with their audience. Canva has awesome 3 step tutorials, they have a course on Lynda.com, and they have YouTube video tutorials… what more can a person ask for. BUT what they don’t cover is how to use Canva for business to get graphics done quickly and tips that work for a solopreneur and/or coaching business. That’s where I’ve created content to help you with your business. My true purpose is to…
  • 6 Steps In Creating An Irresistible Freebie Opt-In Using Canva

    Let’s bring simple back! People are thinking they have to create these hundred page ebooks and elaborate workbooks to get the attention of their readers. In reality, no one has time for that unless they make the time. Then the question is, “Is your opt-in so freakin’ irresistible that people can’t wait to type in their email address?” Hmm… Did I get you thinking? I realized this myself when I was working on worksheets for my course and found myself getting completely hung up on the style. I almost forgot KISS (Keep It Simple Silly). Seriously, have you ever done that? Where…
