Hiring a virtual assistant is the best decision you would have taken in all your business life. You need not attend any vendor fair, or keep contacting all your friends, family, neighbors and associates to stretch your marketing levels. All this and more will be taken care of by the hired virtual assistant.
If you think that direct sellers or network marketers need to be in face-to-face contact with their customers or be close geographically – you are very wrong. There are a whole load of customers, a vast new market waiting to know about your business, see what you have to offer, purchase your products or services from you, become your customer for life or mingle their own business with you. Therefore it is crucial that you consider the online community a very real and very large market for your business.
Now that you know the power of online communities you need to know how to find and reach these folks. You can leave this to your virtual assistant!
Virtual Assistants (VAs) are independent entrepreneurs who handle all tasks be it administrative or online marketing tasks for business owners. They are a vital resource in expanding direct sales business to include an online presence and reach the online market. Entrepreneurs big or small have discovered the benefits of hiring a VA but many consultants within the direct sales and network marketing industry are to wake up to the fact or learn the true value of out sourcing or may have never even heard of a Virtual Assistant.
In order to market online the first and foremost thing that you need is a website. You may get one from the Direct Sales company but what is even better is employing the services of VA to create your very own website, which you can link to your Direct Sales company site. By doing this, your VA can optimize your site to have a high search engine ranking so that when you are searched for in the Google or any other search engine for your products or the company you’re with – they discover you.
