Virtual Assistants Share Secrets for Effective Business Communication in Honor of Effective Communication Month
Online PR News – 16-June-2009 – – June is Effective Communication month and the Virtual Assistants at VAnetworking.com, the world's largest social networking community for Virtual Assistants and virtual entrepreneurs are sharing their tips for using a Virtual Assistant to communicate effectively in your business.
Tawnya Sutherland, founder of VAnetworking states, "Entrepreneurs who can't afford a communications staff don't need to handle their business communication on their own. Partnering with a Virtual Assistant gives these business owners the expertise they need on an as-needed basis."
A Virtual Assistant (VA) is a highly-trained independent entrepreneur who provides a myriad of business support services virtually via phone, fax and internet based technology to support and meet the growing needs of businesses worldwide. Partnering with a VA reduces stress, protects cash flow, eliminates administrative hassles, and enables business people to find the success they originally set out to achieve. Most business owners never meet their Virtual Assistants as they help their clients virtually from their own home offices, from anywhere in the world.
Sutherland offers the following advice for partnering with a Virtual Assistant to communicate more effectively:
1. If you need an email campaign launched and/or maintained, a Virtual Assistant can write the emails or edit yours, and schedule them in your autoresponder.
2. When you write blog posts, send them to your Virtual Assistant to be scheduled.
3. Before you send out a document, have your Virtual Assistant convert it to a professional-looking PDF first.
4. Do you have a seminar you recorded and need transcribed? Hire a Virtual Assistant to transcribe it.
5. If you need help getting your email organized and prioritized, a Virtual Assistant can manage your email.
6. Do you need calls made to confirm your appointments? Let your Virtual Assistant make your calls.
7. Let your Virtual Assistant set you up and maintain your profile on social media and networking sites.
8. Have your Virtual Assistant write and submit a press release for your exciting business news.
VAnetworking.com, a social networking site for aspiring, new, and established VAs was launched in 2003 when Sutherland recognized the need for an educational and social networking community for Virtual Assistants and virtual entrepreneurs to connect, share, discuss, and promote their businesses. With more than 11,000 members who have access to discounts on products and services, weekly e-seminars by industry experts, requests for proposals, and fun contests and prizes, VAnetworking is regularly profiled in national magazines, television shows and radio stations worldwide, including Entrepreneur's StartUps, Reader's Digest, and the Dr. Phil Show.
