Hire a Social Media Virtual Assistant if you Want the Customer

Want the Customer – Give the Service! If you have ever worked in customer service you will know that the customer is always right. Well, that is still true if you are a social media virtual assistant. Sometimes what the client wants will not seem like the best way to do something but they are the boss and I need to listen to them or I may not have them as a client for long.

I was lucky at the beginning that I had someone mentoring me about each client.  This most likely saved me several headaches.  My mentor was passing down her knowledge about each of the clients she gave me to work with.  From the beginning, I had a clear understanding of what they wanted and expect from me.  All of the hard stuff was already figured out by my boss/mentor.  Have I told you I was really lucky to start out this way?  Well, I am telling you now!

How A Social Media Virtual Assistant Can Help Your Business

Social Media is Mightier Than the Sword

A Social Media Virtual Assistant takes pride in helping others become successful in their business. Actually, an experience I had with helping a friend set up some things for her business opened the door to me thinking about what being a Virtual Assistant is all about. Being able to say that I can help with some of their administrative work and media presence while they spend time with a client or growing their business in some way makes me feel good.

So the other day I was helping a client set up a new Facebook, Twitter and YouTube account, the Holy Grail in the social media world. And I realized how much this was going to help their business.

Setting up these accounts and creating content for them was going to bring them before a worldwide audience. And if I did my job right and used the correct keywords and a little SEO it would bring them before a target market that needed what they had to offer which would help the people and grow the business.
