Virtual Administrative Assistant -SEO/Company Research Analyst
(optimizing search engines for both US/EU online business owners)
I work for both US/UK companies who owns another division of their business i.e. B2B commerce and some are LLC’s, With what I do, With my line of business, I get the chance to work with entrepreneurs, coaches, gurus etc… In the I.T. industry we are called Search Engine Optimizers, the technical administrative virtual assistants who manipulates the search engines (yahoo/msn/google) to make these companies lead among the millions of sites that they are competing with on the search engines to enable to generate sales, visibility, popularity etc. through the usage of several software applications…
Being a Virtual Assistant can be a challenging yet compensating job. Not only that it can be financially compensating but rather a very good inspiration for those who are seeking a much focused personal growth incentive that this business can provide throughout the process. Each day is a fresh learning strategy that helps you provide a better service to your clients and the needs they require.
With this kind of business (which I treat it…and will explain later why it is a “business”), I oftentimes get the chance to encounter quite a number of Virtual Assistants who oftentimes trade themselves short. It is sad that some Virtual Assistants, especially those who are focused on Search Engine Optimization and online development do not get to see the value of their work due to that mindset that this is just like any other job that requires an 8 hour time in and time out that most clients require them of – a service without much involvement to their jobs. However, we cannot blame these team of virtual assistants since a wise businessman knows that there are people who simply work for their month’s end pay or hourly wage and some who really gets involved with the client’s business. In a particular area – such as traffic management, to which constant diligence and follow-up is necessary, people who have been able to understand the value of their role in the development field gets that high feeling whenever they get such traffic rate that they are expecting and share the same lows whenever the traffic seems to be staggering down the drains. These team of people do understand that their involvement to the success of their client’s business is not only a whooping bonus paycheck to look forward to, but rather the importance of how good they are with their craft and further studying strategies to enhance their personal development skills that can not only acquire them personal pride and satisfaction, but the trust of their client to recommend them to their network of people. And this, as I mentioned earlier is when an individual considered his job not as a sole 8-5 workload but as his own business and his passion where he/she not only commits to the job but to branding themselves as a service worth indicated.
Would you want to share your experience with a Virtual Assistant or being a Virtual Assistant yourself? I’d be glad to hear from you.
