After reading Craig`s 1st post, I get the impression he thinks you are running a temp agency for VAs. That is not the impression I get from your message and from your site. I read that you are a single VA wanting to find more business. This is how I based my reply.
I know lots of VAs in ATL. They are all busy and have more work than they can handle - most have cut off taking more clients. In ATL, the unemployment rate is very low as it is in many cities across America. Temp agencies can not find enough good, qualified people to fill the pipeline. This is an huge opportunity for VAs - IMHO.
You just need to get your name out there better and to more people. You`re in a big NJ town. I have to believe it is not much different than ATL.
Suggestion: Start by direct solicitation to brand new business entities. New corporations and LLCs and such are public record. Get the list (weekly) of these new business entities and make solicitations to them offering your services explaining the value and benefits of a VA. Who better to use your services than new companies. Once you get a meeting to discuss the possibilities, sell yourself and build a relationship. Ask lots of questions and find out what THEIR needs are and make their dreams come true. Every client is different as you well know. You are in the service business - provide the service they need at a 110% level - they will love you. Your new found customers will then begin to do your marketing for you through word of mouth advertising - not only the best advertising in the world ... but the least expensive. And always remember ... if your new customers like you and your service ... ask for referrals - most people don`t Ask .... and ask first.
Hope this helps.
