Hi, it`s me, the newbie on this forum, again! : )
I believe I now understand the confusion. It wasn`t over what Kate `is`, but what can Kate `do` for businesses as their VA and possibly what her 30-second elevator speech would be.
It looks like Kate answered some of those questions in her last few posts. Good job.
If I were posting to ask for business on this website, I would likely say the following, (keep in mind that I work with a different target market than food and wine), "I specialize in helping authors, coaches and speakers who struggle to keep up with e-commerce and new technologies. We take the struggle off our client`s shoulders, relieving them of this stress. We implement new systems and technologies while helping them grow their bottom line."
I am sure Kate will work on her 30-second elevator speech, commercial, audio logo, or whichever phrase you prefer. It`s great to see more feedback on this forum. We`re all here to help each other grow...I love it!
I am wondering if those of you on this foodies group have ideas on where one might find clients in the food and wine industry and also who would be open to the idea of a VA. You would know some publications, online groups, etc., wouldn`t you? I think that`s where Kate might need some help. There are thousands of websites when performing a Google search, but that`s like finding a needle in a haystack.
I work with authors, coaches, and speakers, so I know where my ideal client hangs out; it`s easy for me to find new clients. I can only think of wineries, caterers, etc. for wine and food. Are there wine clubs, wine blogs, etc. that you know of where one might need help implementing their small-ish marketing budget?
I`ll do some searching, too, as I am near both Napa and Sonoma Valleys...the largest wine countries in the US and possibly the world. Fancy that I rarely drink wine, but when I do, my neighbor and I can sure polish off a great muscat wine!
Well, I am signing off for now...
