How To Win On Instagram As A Virtual Assistant

How To Win On Instagram As A Virtual Assistant

The online space has opened up new opportunities that were a dream a few decades ago. There has arisen a new breed of workers known as the virtual assistant. This group will perform all the duties that a personal assistant can do but they will do them remotely. They will do things such as booking hotels, taking down notes, generating reports and communicating on behalf of their bosses without being there physically. You could be having these skills but how do people know that you are the right fit by marketing yourself on social media? The following are simple tips on how to win on Instagram as a virtual assistant.

Develop a strategy

You could be the best virtual assistant but without a marketing plan, the chances of securing clients through Instagram are very slim. Your strategy does not have to be fancy but should indicate what you intend to achieve and how you will do it. Such a plan enables you to balance between marketing and tackling the tasks that you get from various clients. Do not use a sales voice but ensure that you tell your clients why they need your services and the benefits that come with such an engagement.

Have a complete profile

Potential clients want to engage with real people when they have such an undertaking. This means that they want someone who understands their needs, who have empathy and can connect emotionally with clients. The choice of your username can be your name or business name depending on how you choose to present yourself. The bio section gives you a chance to link back to other profiles or websites. You can request your potentials to check out your portfolio by clicking the links on your bio section. Keep updating your bio to include your latest developments in this field.

Use a growth tool

Managing social media and tackling clients’ work can be overwhelming. However, the two bits are important and you have to find a balance. You can use various automation tools and get the best out of the two worlds. You just have to know what you want to achieve because different tools have different features. Check out both customer and expert reviews of these services such as these at to land on the best.

Brand Yourself on the Web

Brand Yourself on the Web – 5 Step Program

Self-branding is important online, and it doesn’t matter if you brand yourself or your company (if you have one that is).

Even if you don’t have a company it doesn’t really matter because when you switch jobs and have to do those annoying interviews they will always look you up on the internet to get a first impression so if you have some impressive presence it only helps in getting that job.

It doesn’t require that many steps really but if you want to do it good you will have to spend some time on each step at least say once a week.

Start with LinkedIn

This is the sites for professionals so it’s the first site you want to join, fill out your profile as completely as possible as that simply looks better, then start making connections with everyone you know and this should get you at least a few dozen, or perhaps even a few hundred people as you can simply enter your email address. Everyone that you ever mailed with will then automatically be invited to follow you.

Next is Facebook

Perhaps you already have a Facebook account, in that case even better as you can authorize LinkedIn to import your contacts or better said Facebook friends so that they will be invited as well. Facebook is a good way to stay in touch with old friends and family members that you see less often than you like to so it’s not like you’re wasting your time on this.

Befriend on Instagram

Instagram is the place to be these days and as Facebook owns it,  it’s once again very easy to use that same circle of friends, you can even take it a step further by expanding your group of friends as maybe you have certain ambitions and well, Instagram is THE place to make your dreams come true. Check this post to see what I’m talking about: “How to Become Instagram Famous in 2018 -Be an Influencer Today“. It explains in a few easy steps how it works so don’t worry if you’re short on time.

Don’t forget Twitter

They really can’t make it any easier, Twitter also has this in-app authorization thing where you can connect it to Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. There are even tools where you can connect it all together so that when you post something on Facebook it automatically gets posted on Twitter as well so this is a very low-maintenance social platform.

The best for last

Start your own website and link from all those profiles to your website and vice versa, you don’t need to publish a new post every day, heck you don’t even need to do it every week, if it’s a personal site you can simply add a few pages about yourself and never update it ever again, while if it’s a site for your company it would be wise to add a new blog posts at least once every two weeks for extra traffic from the search engines.
