    You know when you start out in business and you get those first clients and prospect customers? You remember every detail, every phone call, where every piece of material they may ever need is.

    How much money are you making from your business? How hard are you working for that money? Are you trading dollars for hours? These are all important questions to ask yourself and most often they lead to one important decision. It’s time to raise your rates. Unfortunately many business owners struggle with this concept. They fear that raising their prices will make them lose money rather than make it. This is a mindset problem and one that needs to be overcome.

    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…

    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…
