    The first thing you have to understand when you want to conduct marketing campaigns either for your business or your client is that engaging with the audience is why audiences engage in the first place. What makes an audience member step out and share, like, comment, or participate in your marketing campaign? It’s either due to the competition, the social kudos, the exclusivity, or the feeling of satisfaction of having created something or done something good. If you can create marketing campaign ideas that play on those factors, you’ll create winning, engaging marketing campaigns…

    It’s amazing how much some Virtual Assistants manage to get their work done, while others seem to be stuck in a rut without enough time in the day to accomplish much of anything. But, here’s the secret. Every VA has the same amount of time in every single day. It’s one way in which we are all created equal. Every Virtual Assistant has the same 24 hours in a day. Track Your Activities for a Week To get a real picture of how you spend your time, try tracking everything you do for at least one week. Use a small recorder to record when you start and stop any task, and include…

  • Bridger retainer block

    Hi everyone...I'd love some input on my retainer blocks. I'm considering a bridge block for clients who go over their hours. So instead of paying hourly or purchasing another 10 hours when they really don;t need that much time to get to the end of their billing cycle they can purchase a bridger of 5 hrs at 5% discount. Next cycle I would encourage them to move up to the next retainer level as it would be a cost savings for them. Eg. $35/hr 10 hrs - $332.50 = 5% discount 15 hrs - $472.50 = 10% discount 20 hrs - $595.00 = 15% discount Bridge - 5 hrs - $166.25 = 5% discount Also...what if they…

    This week I am concentrating on the tricky task of business travel planning. Today I will be writing about the first step which is ‘waving goodbye to your Executive‘. Firstly I think we all breath a sign of relief when our Executive pays that final visit to our desk to say goodbye before they head out of the office to start their business trip. There has usually been weeks of work leading up to this point and depending on where the Executive is going there have probably been lots of meetings to discuss the finer points. That sign of relief comes with the knowledge that once your…

Why would we want to work with them in the first place? Building trust with visual content marketing happens all the time offline however it’s a bit harder to do online. I have a bit of story for you – I live in the countryside in Indiana where we use our own well water therefore we have a septic tank (basically a sewer for ya’ll city folk – haha).

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…
