GlobalVAWeek – it’s here!

Next week is GlobalVAWeek – a time for virtual assistants to network with other VAs, share strategies for finding new clients and raise the profile of the industry!  The official site is www.globalVAweek.com So how you you help?

Well firstly there are several regional meet ups happening – scroll down for the full list and how to book your place!  The events are taking place in: Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, Surrey, Milton Keynes, Glasgow, Reading, Boldon, Lancaster and York.

We’re also hoping to get a barrage of Tweets infecting Twitter over 16th – 22nd May.  To this end, we’ve created a list of over 50 tweets which you can use on your own Twitter account to promote your own business.  Just pick and choose the ones which suit your business and use the “#globalVAweek” hashtag on each tweet.  Download the list by clicking here.

Tell other people about being a VA – use some of our press releases to contact the local media and get exposure for your business and the industry.  Use www.mediauk.com or your local paper to find contacts!   Click on the releases to download them:  UK press – outsourcing release, UK VA Regional Meet ups, Gobal VA Week Press Release

And we’re also hoping to see many of you online for the UK VA panel as part of www.oivac.com – we’re just finalising the details and we’ll forward you the access codes ASAP.   This is a free Q&A panel – featuring expert VAs, social media gurus, VA coaches, VAs with specialist niches and VAs who have grown their businesses by using associates and subcontractors.
