A virtual assistant is someone who you can trust, confide in and send work to on a regular basis. Bloggers may hire a virtual assistant to complete blogger support threads, social media management, replies to social media contact on FB or Instagram, content writing and many other tasks.
I have completed many tasks for bloggers as well as app companies and brands. I have even helped eCommerce sites upload their products with images, descriptions, and pricing in the past.
These are just some ideas on what a virtual assistant can offer bloggers and of course bloggers want to make money while spending the least amount of time on tedious tasks.
Bloggers used to do it all themselves. They spent hours upon hours creating content, developing an editorial calendar, creating pictures and taking part in blogging support groups.
These hours were precious time being taken away from the bigger picture of blogging business. You see, bloggers should have time free to pitch for ad space, event attendance and other arenas that will bring them more income.
Having a virtual assistant that you can trust to get their work done on time and without question is a great asset to any blogger.
Why Should Bloggers have a Virtual Assistant?
- No more Stress on Content Creation – no more worrying about those tedious tasks of editing, uploading photos or even creating content. Give your VA your editorial calendar and let them create the content, images and even upload to your blog dashboard.
- More Engagement on Social & Blog Posts – no more worrying about getting traction on your blog posts. Let your VA handle the tedious task of leaving comments on other blog posts and social media content as you watch your engagement increase.
- Tasks Completed on Time – sure you can do all of the tasks a virtual assistant can do, but hiring someone to just handle those tasks helps ease your stress level and open the doors to you gaining more income because you will have time to converse and pitch products and brands.
- Alleviates Stress – seriously, I am not even kidding, my clients enjoy having free time. If my client is sick they don’t have to worry about content creation being made, engagement being worked on or pitches being sent. Bloggers who hire me as a virtual assistant have confidence that work is being done while they go be sick and relax or just get other areas of work done!
