Focus on what your clients need in their business. To be a successful at-home worker you need to constantly be providing value to clients. For example, are they interested in moving their files to a cloud-based platform? Do they need help with billing and invoicing QuickBooks online? First thing’s first, create a To-Do List and get in the habit of doing so.

\n

A new or experienced Virtual Assistant can find themselves wondering what the key ingredient to providing value to clients is. They wonder how to manage multiple clients, and if there are marketing strategies that benefit Virtual Assistants. 

\n

In this episode, we talk to a guest with unmatched professional intuition, over 20 years of experience in the industry, and over 10 years of experience as a business owner. We discuss how important a to-do list is, and helpful tools for day-to-day tasks. We also discuss the prevalence of travel management pre-COVID, the importance of providing value to clients, marketing strategies, and client retention… to name a few! In the words of our guest, “Talking about things help you fine tune what you’d like to do!”

Networking, even virtually, can be a terrifying idea. Networking as a Virtual Assistant is vital to the success of your business. Maybe because of your personality or because you are simply new to it. Either way, you do not have to be a smooth operator or an extroverted go-getter to be successful; all you need are the right strategies.

\n

Are you going to be a Virtual Assistant specializing in a specific skill set and only perform duties related to those skills? Will you specialize in an industry? Will you work from home or be available on-site? These are just a few of the questions you may ask yourself when starting.

\n

In this episode, we talk to a guest with more than 25 years of experience in the field. She lends her expertise to every aspect of being an outstanding Virtual Assistant and encourages future Virtual Assistants to reach out. As Rosanna says, “Network, network, network!”

Virtual Assistants are remarkably in demand by businesses that need help but do not want to spend the money on office space for staff. Many small and mid-size companies use Virtual Assistants for specific tasks such as social media management. Finding Virtual Assistant work after graduation isn’t as hard as you may think. 

\n\n

In this episode, we discuss how administrative tasks are typical for Virtual Assistants, but they can require help with many other business areas. There are limitations, but technology is frequently offering ways to work around the restrictions.

\n

If you are contemplating starting your own business as our guest has, you are in luck. It is relatively affordable and easy to do. There is a growing need for virtual help, and if you have the skills and equipment to get started, you can find your first client and be on your way.

COVID-19 has changed how we go about our days. It has affected our income, the way we shop, visiting friends and family, and so much more. We brought in Max Eisner, CPA, to learn about the government subsidies and how all this affects contractors. We wanted to give tips for working as a contractor during this confusing time.

\n

\"Tips
\n

\n

The first topic we discuss is COVID-19 and government subsidies. Working as a contractor can be hard to navigate. Many self-employed workers opt-out of paying into Employment Insurance. Max and Justin discuss what the Canadian government is doing to help these people. From the $2,000.00 payment to the 75% subsidy on wages, everything is covered. These issues and policies surrounding these ideas are broken down with some surprises intertwined.

\n

The second major topic focuses on tips for working as a contractor. It can be hard to understand what you can and can’t write off as a contractor. It can also be confusing to understand what is available to you. Max breaks down everything you need to know about working as a contractor. Here are just some of the questions answered:

\n\n

This podcast is designed to navigate our confusing world, both now, and later. When we have a handle on COVID-19, this information will continue to help. Understanding the job as a contractor will help you save money and ensure you are getting the best tax rate.

In this episode of the, We Have Answers Podcast, Justin sits down with Chris Stewart, the Director of Sales and Marketing at Acorn Homes, to discuss ethics in marketing. Companies advertise using Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Google, and so much more. These companies have created an industry for consulting and paid marketing. With that, comes ethical issues and quality.

\n

The average person has very little knowledge about how advertising online works. It is a complex and system. How come when I visit a website I see ads for it? How come when I click on the first link in my Google Search I don’t really see what I want? These sorts of questions are common, so we decided to discuss it.

\n

There are marketing firms that offer to produce amazing numbers, new leads, and more purchases for organizations. Some of the tactics used may confuse potential buyers. It is important for people to know what happens when you click an ad. It is also important for people to know what marketing companies can do.

\n

There are ethics in marketing. There are also laws and policies regulating the industry. For example, Facebook does not allow companies to post vague and ambiguous jobs in an ad. Most governments have laws governing false advertising as well. In our opinion, things that are unethical, however, are not limited to, when companies:

\n\n

Sometimes a company will leave out important information. For example, you will see an advertisement for “A FREEiPad!” What is left out of the ad is that you need to sign a two-year service contract.

\n

You often see hidden fees in ticket sales. You may see concert ticket prices advertised as $99.00, but then find out at the checkout that there is a $15.00 service fee.

\n

Misleading claims come from ads that basically lie to you. If you are looking to attend a college and they tell you that 99% of their graduates are working, think to yourself, “Does that make sense?” Maybe it does, but maybe so few students graduate that they can claim that.

\n

Random and pointless comparisons are easy to spot when you know what to look for. When you see something like “We are better than the competitor!” Ask yourself the question, “What competitor?” An ad like this doesn’t tell you who they are better than.

\n

It is important to understand these basic principals of marketing. So, keep an eye for ads, and make sure you question things that don’t sound right.
