As a Social Media Virtual Assistant, I’m a Jack-of-all-trades

Let Me Speak Your Mind. I’m a Jack-of-all-trades. I’m not supposed to tell you that. I’m supposed to tell you about my in-depth knowledge of one specific niche and hope that that’s what you need to be written. The fact of the matter is that as a Social Media Virtual Assistant, I do whatever you’ll ask me to do (to a certain limit) when it comes to writing social media content or administrative assignments.

WHAT TYPES OF WORK DO I DO?

  • Developing Job Tests
  • Web Content and Administrative Work
  • Ghostwriting Fiction and Non-Fiction
  • Developmental and Copy Editing

I can’t do that, though, because it’s not true. I’m a generalist — a woman — and, trust me, that’s exactly what you’re looking for if you want, for example, a new logo design   The Internet lets you reach a larger audience for less money than has ever been possible. That audience consists of people of all different shapes and sizes, each one of them a consumer of information. I develop online tests for less fortunate youth who want to earn a GED diploma, and that reminds me… I’m supposed to help one of my cousins with that as well…

A specialist may connect with a small number of those people — the ones already invested in your niche. But that’s no way to expand your reach. Staying in your comfort zone will never allow your business to grow.
