    I was having this exact problem last month… Upon looking at the open rates of my emails I was noticing an increased downward spiral of user open rates on my email list. 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? Yes I admit, I was the rebel teenager in highschool, go figure ;) Was it my friendly and warm Canadian writing style pushing people away EH? OR was it that I simply just wrote crappy headlines?

    Ahhh blogging, a favourite subject of mine! I recently wrote about how to make sure your hard work doesn’t get lost in cyberspace so your ideal customers can find you. But when they do find you and love you, you want to make sure they STAY! They may read your blog, they may even sign up to your newsletter but since stats say (and we all know they never lie) that it takes the average person seven – count them – seven points of contact before they buy from you do you really want them to escape that easily?

    Have you ever had a bunch of windows open in your browser window doing research for a client that you just don’t have time to thoroughly read but want to save and read at a later date? This happens to me all the time be it for business or personal internet research. Did you know that if you use Google Chrome you can save all these open tabs/windows into one bookmark folder and then open them all up again all at once when you have time to finish your research? How cool is that? This hidden feature of Google Chrome to “Bookmark all tabs” has helped me many times when…

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…

    Working from home as a Virtual Assistant can sometimes make you feel lonely or isolated. No doubt about it!

Sometimes, you have to be prepared to be judged by others, deal with criticism on a massive scale and yet not take it personally. Especially when you’re doing business online. Controversial. Just look at Russell Brand. Everyone has an opinion on him.

  • 5 Best Practices for Email Unsubscribes

    Email unsubscribes are inevitable. Every brand that’s into email marketing receives unsubscribe requests from their customers even big players like Amazon and eBay. 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. It could also be the reason why you were “spring cleaned.” According to ExactTarget’s Social Breakup Report, 54% of consumers…

Hopefully this task list is available for you to access on a daily basis and you have the rights to edit and update the list. Ideally the list should be on the same email system that you use to manage their inbox and schedule (Microsoft Outlook for example). If this is not the case it might be worth suggesting to your boss that you work together on their to-do list.

We have a difficult job and if we are unable to stand up for ourselves this makes the role a lot harder. It can lead to feeling unchallenged, unappreciated and more importantly managed ineffectively by your Executive. Although not all of us are blessed with unwavering self-confidence (I certainly am not!) There are areas within the role that every assistant should feel comfortable with and have confidence in their own abilities. Here are my top three: Skills…
