Identifying Potential Clients

Many businesses sell to whoever chooses to buy from them.  On the face of it, there’s no problem with this approach – but a  far better way is to work with customers by selecting your services that match their needs and offering it to them.  Another phrase for “Potential Client” is Target Client, Ideal Client, Niche Client,  Super Customer or Client Avatar – lets find yours.

Working with Clients

Understanding how to support your clients, while communicating with clients in a streamlined way will save you hours of time. This module helps you prepare for those all important discovery calls, sending proposals, onboarding and review meetings (and even how to have any difficult conversations) with clients.

Marketing

There are many definitions of marketing but it is essentially about understanding your clients or potential clients: identifying what it is they want and keeping them satisfied. It is about creating awareness of what you provide and the benefits of your service. This module walks you through how to present yourself professionally online and offline.

Build and Grow

Building and growing your VA business, you are going to have to learn to trust people and delegation will need to be learnt and practiced in the same way you tell your clients!  You might need to outsource, to build a team to either outsource tasks so that can be better done by someone else or that you don’t possess the skillset to do. We also look at working with a Mentor and Exit Strategies!

Private Support Community

Private Facebook community for peer to peer support, relationship building and knowledge exchange.  Access to our award winning Business Coach, Trainer and Mentor who understands the issues you are facing at grass roots level both in the support community, via email and in personal calls.

This course is for you if you want to know the answers to the following really important questions:

If you have been wondering how or struggling with getting your business off the ground.  Perhaps you are still working in a “J-O-B” and although you have the business idea, you are not in a position to give up that income just yet.  (It will take longer to get your VA business established if you are still working full time – but it is totally achievable.)

If you are ready to follow a proven method and do the work.  No more excuses.  You need to be driven, and refuse to be average – you are done with trial and error and want to set your business up with ease.

All of these questions and more get answered as part of the course:

  • How can I ensure success?
  • What services do I offer?

Go 2 Virtual Assistants

Amanda is a legend. Fact. I started her VA mastery course a couple of months ago and I’ve already decided it was one of the best career moves I’ve ever made. The level of advice and support is amazing. Amanda really has got every aspect of being a VA covered in her training but not only that, she takes time to provide, useful, honest and constructive feedback. As part of of this training you are also able to participate in a fantastically supportive group to share experiences, worries, and wins. I would highly recommend her training to anyone considering becoming a VA or to those who need a boost in their VA career.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take?

Each main module will take you 10-15 hours depending on the level of granularity you decide to go into.  But there will some people who spend a lot less time in one module and more time in another.  However, you get unlimited access to the Modules.

How is the training delivered?

The training is delivered through a mix of distance learning printable materials, online videos and audios. By the end of the course you will have created your own copy of the “The VA Knowledge.”

Do you train me on the practicalities of running a VA business?

Yes, you are given training on the technical skills and knowledge to work virtually and while will help you to get started part-time or full-time.

Can I do the training whilst working full-time?

Yes, you can do the training while still working full-time (or even part-time).  In fact, I do not recommend you giving up your employed role until the business is established and you are starting to secure clients.

Does it matter if I don't know my niche?

It does not matter if you don’t yet know your niche – in fact, a niche is “just” a marketing tool that will help you in your business – so please do not beat yourself up that you don’t have a niche.

ABOUT VEE

Vee (Smith) Tanner is the Biz Tech Wiz. She’s been building websites since 1997 (when the internet was in its infancy and we used dial-up to access it). There were no training courses back then when the company she worked for (a global, multi-million turnover listed company) asked her to build their website. She figured it out and the bosses were so pleased with website she built that it was used as a showcase for the 30 subsidiaries they owned.

When Vee set up her Virtual Admin business in 2005 (Vee is a former VA Mastery Course student) she soon discovered that clients chose her over her contemporaries because she could tinker with their websites and throw up new pages and websites to test out their new services and products. She continually invests in online marketing training to keep up to date with next best practice of what online marketing works and implement that for her clients.

Is the Biz Website Building Course delivered via VACT?

The Biz Website Builder Course is delivered by Vee Tanner and is separate to VACT.  

VACT have partnered with Vee to deliver this course, because Vee understands Virtual Assistants – having not only done the VA Mastery Course but having run a very successful VA business.  She has also worked with VAs to build and develop their websites.

What do you get when you buy the Biz Website Builder Course

An independent course, made up 10 modules.  Each module is delivered through a series of short 5-10 minute videos where you literally sit on the shoulder of Vee watching her explain what she does so that you can pause and repeat what she has done.

With each module are links to Vee’s favourite resources and cheat sheets which makes the process of building your website even simpler and quicker. 

And you’ll have access to her Private Facebook Group, Pick Vee’s Brains, where you can ask questions at any time and get answers and guidance personal from Vee.

PLUS you get all of her insider pro-tips and best practice that, up to now, only her web clients have had access to.
