    Some might think that I would naturally say that in every instance a REVA, or real estate virtual assistant, should always be your first choice over an onsite assistant. That’s simply not true. There are times when an onsite assistant might be in the real estate agent’s best interests. At the same time, there are times […] The post Real Estate Virtual Assistant or Onsite Assistant appeared first on JG Assistance.

    I don’t know about you but the holidays really burn me out and I sometimes find it hard to get back into that productive work groove come January 2nd (or January 6th as I write this post LOL!). 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! It’s quite different from working in a corporate office environment (that’s for sure) and can be quite a shock to your system when you first start working from home. It’s hard NOT TO MISS how socially engaging it was working around people where you could actually: Roll your chair around to talk to the co-worker in the cubicle behind you to ask them how to freeze panes in an Excel file. Meet up in the lunch room to chat about the holiday party at the end of the…

    Hi there, I'm going to ask for opinions on my domain name (which is also my email) as I am considering changing it before it's too late/far along and cumbersome to do so. My business name is Hour 25 Virtual Solutions, my url: www.hour25virtualsolutions.ca (I also own .com of the same). However, my husband who is in Marketing says I should use the shorter domain I own which is www.hour25vs.ca (or .com).

She has been saying for the last 6 months she would like to turn over her closing coordination (one of my specialties) but can't seem to pull the trigger. We had a meeting this week and she is restructuring her business to cater to the luxury market and bring on a buyer agent. I am preparing a proposal to show her how delegating the closings will free up her time to concentrate on her new ventures and keep her out of the office and in front of these buyers and…

    We’ve been looking at measuring social media the past two weeks starting with Facebook and today we’ll be zeroing in on Twitter.  Twitter has 284 million monthly active users and there are 500 million tweets sent per day.  The dynamics of the Twitterverse is very different from other social media sites. People who use Twitter prefer quick, straight forward, real-time updates. This is great for business especially if you’re running a campaign that runs for a limited time only. Measuring Twitter engagement involves different metrics. Just like in any social media platform you need to…

    Kimberly
    16 Jan 2015 | 2:47 pm
    As of Jaunary 1, 2015, Pinterest opened up promoted pins to all advertisers. After several months of beta testing, they found that promoted pins performed just as well, and sometimes better, as organic pins. They also found that, so far, pinners don’t seem to mind seeing promoted pins in their pinstream. The Details Promoted pins are considered an ad on Pinterest and you’re able to set up different ad campaigns. For each campaign, you can select target audiences based on location (currently only in the U.S), interests, demographics and devices. Pinterest promoted pins work on a…
  • Facebooks Ads: Are They Worth It?

    There has been quite a bit of chatter online lately about the decline in reach for page posts on Facebook. Some people are pretty upset that Facebook is reducing the reach and visibility of the posts from their Facebook page and many declare it’s just an effort to force businesses to use Facebook ads. And, there may be some truth to that. But, there are other considerations as well such as: Reach is not down for everyone. Engaging content and an active page community can still contribute to a sizeable reach for posts. There is more competition for space in the newsfeed than ever before.

Pinterest is definitely here to stay and a force to be reckoned with and utilized to sell your product, your service, etc. If you think about it, Pinterest IS best for product based businesses.

Currently, if you have an account, then you are being given the option to switch to the new design right away or you can wait until it’s automatically rolled out to your account. If you switch though, then keep in mind you will not be able to switch back to the old design. What’s…

The reception area leads on to the restaurant area and to a small bar space – The Consulting Room which serves cocktails and afternoon tea. I arrived on a wet and windy Sunday morning and was immediately whisked up to my room. I must say I was delighted to get into the room early and even more delighted when I saw the size of the bed and the big bathtub. In no particular order I took a bath, called…
