Virtual Assistant Services

Hey everyone,

I’m not sure if you were aware but I offer my services as a ‘Virtual Assistant Web Manager’ to a small number of clients and I’m currently looking to take on a couple more this year.

My expertise is working with people and businesses to establish loyal communities and followers online via blogging, websites and social media, it’s what I have been doing for about 20 years now and I can offer my services in these areas at a very reasonable £20 an hour.

Some of the things I can really help you with are:

  • Setting up social media channels with your content and branding (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google +, Instagram, YouTube etc).
  • Writing and scheduling posts on all your social media channels including running competitions and give-aways.
  • Setting up a WordPress website and blog and working on the content for you and SEO (search engine optimization).
  • Creating and administering digital newsletters including sending them out to all your subscribers on your behalf.
  • Editing and creating video content in Premiere Pro for YouTube and your website.
  • App building services.

Here is an example of a digital business card I created

Here is a short video interview I created for Dale Carnegie Training.

Here is the employee app I created for PMS Diecasting.

How am I qualified to do these things? It’s 20 years of experience…

It all started with a rural communities self-sufficiency style website called ‘A Country Life’ or ACL for short which grew into a community of tens of thousands and 1/2 million page views every month. I learned a lot during my time as owner and editor of the website about online communities and building useful, passionate content.

I think if I was to give one snippet of advice to anyone who would like to build a genuine, busy online community would be to make it about something you are REALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT, the thing you want to talk to everyone about EVERY SINGLE DAY! You don’t have to be an expert, just love it, live it, breathe it! If you are passionate about something you can’t help yourself!!..

Since then I have worked in Canada as a Web Manager for a newspaper in Nova Scotia, utilizing social media in it’s early days, building and maintaining digital newsletters to all newspaper subscribers as well as adding reported news, videos and special features to an every changing news website. I felt very honoured to be mentored in ‘Search Engine Optimization’ during this time by David Jonah.

In between I have always found time to be involved in promoting community activities such as festivals, groups and museums and interacting online and through media to raise awareness of these things.

I currently work full-time as a Digital Media Coordinator for a manufacturing company in Rotherham and my day job evolves around posting social content, updating websites, creating video media, creating brochures and signage. I’ve also designed and administer an employee app.

Please get in contact with me if you feel I can be of service to you!
