Creating a Professional Virtual Assistant Website
Your website is an online representation of you and your work as a VA. You want to present a professional website to attract the type of client you want to work with. There are a few key things you should focus on when you first build your VA website.
Build an Attractive VA Website
There are many ways to build a VA website, WordPress, Squarespace, Weebly or Wix. You can build the site yourself or hire a designer. Anyway, you do it, make sure to include these three things.
- Contact Form – don’t just have it on your site once. Put your contact form on your Home Page, on your Services Page and on your Contact Page. Don’t make potential clients search for a way to get in touch with you. Many people won’t click around your site until they find it, they will just move on to the next potential VA. Along with this, if someone contacts you, write or call back! Don’t lose out by not getting back to them in a timely manner. 24 hours during the week, 48 hours on the weekend.
- Services – list your services and packages. Be specific! Don’t just write Newsletter Services, write Monthly Newsletter in MailChimp, Constant Contact or ConvertKit. I don’t think it is important to list your prices, if they are interested in your services they will contact you and you can send them a quote or price sheet. If you need help setting your prices check out my post on Packages Vs. Hourly Rates.
- Testimonials – people want to know that you are proficient in the niche that you have listed on your VA website. Create a Testimonials Page and list some of your previous work. If your previous clients agree you can link to their website or social media page so that potential clients can see first hand what you do. If you don’t have any previous clients do some volunteer work for a local non-profit and get them to give you a testimonial in return. Looking for a few tips on getting those first few clients?
