Curious about the type of services you can offer as a new virtual assistant? Looking to add a new service to your existing menu of VA services? Want to pivot from specializing in a particular service to one that’s a better fit for you and the clients you want to attract?
I got you boo! You’re going to love this list of service ideas!
WHAT KIND OF VIRTUAL ASSISTANT SERVICES DO I OFFER?
I’ve been a virtual assistant since 2014. I started out as a OBM (Online Business Manager) and later pivoted to what I’m doing now, which is Pinterest Management.
Even though I specialize in Pinterest, there are other tasks and services that I do that I don’t even advertise.
For one, I still do various tasks for a couple clients I’ve worked with from the very beginning. One of them owns a couple of skincare studios in Portland, OR where I help with payroll, social media, email management, etc. The other is a health coach and I help her launch seasonal detoxes, social media management, and almost anything she needs.
I also help people update their websites (these people are usually referred to me by current or past clients) and I even help a realtor in ND update farm land listings!
