Marketing Friday: More tips and tricks for Virtual Assistants

Here are five ideas which you can work on today, Marketing Friday, to get more business next week.

  • ¬†Offer a discount when someone refers a new client (make sure you only pay out when the new client pays their bill!)

  • Ask clients for any ways that you can change/make your business practices better, alternatively if you have lost a client, be sure to ask why!
  • Find a target market – contact them by mail, and be sure to follow-up with phone calls and letters. Use www.marketingfile.com to buy in lists of prospects. Top tip: Make sure the lists are small and very targeted, limit them by type of business, location, what data is available to purchase etc.
  • Identify new target markets. Spend 15 minutes thinking of 5 industries that could use a virtual assistant and what services they would want to use.
  • Advise clients of new services. Offer an introductory discount to get them to try it out.
