Well, the 2nd annual Online International Virtual Assistant Convention is almost here and along with it, something totally new! A blog hopping tour. Details below.
Baltimore, MD â€• We’ve heard about or read about tours designed to promote all kinds of causes or industries. But you’ve never read about something like this before. Sharon Williams, also known as the Podcast and Blog Hopping Virtual Assistant, will embark on a 45 Day Virtual Tour designed to promote the Virtual Assistant Industry. It’s a grueling schedule, but Williams, who has been in training for this event, says she’s up for the challenge.The idea is simple. Sharon will visit a different blog or podcast each day, to answer questions about the Virtual Assistant Industry and its upcoming annual online convention. Utilizing social networking, she will introduce virtual assistance to bloggers around the world, with stops planned in Australia, Canada, the US, England and other countries. Ms. Williams will respond to questions regarding the industry’s history, technology trends, benefits of working with VAs — basically anything blog readers want to know about one of the fastest growing home-based businesses of the 21st century.
A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an entrepreneur providing administrative and other business support services to business owners, remotely. “This tour is an opportunity to educate executives and entrepreneurs about the advantages of working with VAs,” states Ms. Williams. “Overworked and overwhelmed small business owners and solopreneurs can now delegate back office and mundane tasks to more than 20,000 work-from-home admin specialists, while they concentrate on responsibilities that fuel their passion.”
As an added twist to this virtual event, Ms. Williams will leave a mystery clue at each stop, as well as a link to the previous stop’s clue. Participants who solve the puzzle at the conclusion of the tour will be eligible for prizes donated by Virtual Assistants and other industry supporting businesses.
The Tour starts April 1 — no fooling. The first week’s schedule is as follows:
- Sunday, April 1, 2007 – OIVAC
