I am in need of a virtual assistant to support me in my business. If you are a familiar with the VA concepts in Tim Ferris’s “The Four Hour Workweek”- then you may be the VA for me.
I am looking for someone who if very proactive who can take instructions and run with things. You must be an excellent communicator verbally and in all written communications.
You must use skype to communicate – I will expect to be in touch via skype more than email and IM. You will also be required to make phone calls on behalf to arrange meetings etc.
You must be a savvy writer with excellent English skills. It doesn’t matter to me what country you reside in, but if you can’t communicate effectively in English, you will not be considered for this position.
You must be proactive – I will give you plenty of direction, but you will need to take that direction and run with it.
You must be outgoing – you will be communicating with a diverse range of people, from doctors to housewives – you need to be someone who is not afraid to contact a subject matter expert to be a guest on the radio show or blog we produce
You must be YOU – I am not looking for a group of 10 people to take care of my business. I am looking for a person who is committed to doing their best, so I can do my best, and we both can benefit. That means that I expect to work with one person. A VA company is fine – but one VA needs to be assigned as the primary.
Here’s just a brief list of what I will need you to do:
• Content creation and posting on company web site
• Handling business emails in contacting experts to teach classes / be a guest on our radio show
• Posting articles to news sites
• Content writing, editing and proofreading
• Researching content
• Preparing presentations (powerpoints and docs)
• Blog management (wordpress)
• Data Entry
• Link Building
• Setting meetings and managing schedules
• Helping promote the business
• Preparing and sending marketing materials
• Attend to personal tasks (making appointments etc)
I will provide specific directions to accomplishing these tasks – however, the person / team I am looking to help me, should also desire to take their own initiative.
Qualities I am looking for:
• Excellent Writer
• Customer service focused
• Willing and able to help run my business / life as it is your own
Work will average 20 hours per week to start.
On a daily basis, I will expect a detail of your activities.
