A question that was asked at a forum I participate in recently. Good question and one that is important for both VAs and clients alike.
The answer is, there is no typical client profile. It really depends on what the VA does and offer as to what a typical client might be for that one particular VA. And it can be based on service offerings or industry niches. For example, a VA may decide to specialise in one or more of the following services:
- digital transcription
- phone answering services
- social media support
- editing, and proofreading
- membership management
- PowerPoint presentations
- the list goes on – depending on what software programs they use and what they have experience in.
Or, the VA may choose to service a particular niche industry providing a number of the services above, such as:
- professional speakers
- business coaches
- not for profit/membership based organisations
- legal practitioners
- medical practitioners
- and again, the list goes on.
So, as you can see from the above, there is lots of scope for VAs to provide services and for those seeking a VA to find one (or more) that fits their needs.
So, if you’re looking for a VA, all you need to do is ask at a VA Network and you’ll get a lot of responses from VAs keen to support you. Gives you choices and saves you ringing around.
And if you’re wanting to become a VA, again, all you need to do is look for a VA Network you can join where you can get guidance, peer support and client introductions.
