As the Internet continues to surge in popularity, so do the opportunities to make money and/or start a business online. One of the most popular businesses to start online is that of a Virtual Assistant. Virtual Assistants are getting more and more popular with each passing day. If you have never heard of the term “Virtual Assistant” it refers to someone who is able to perform administrative tasks remotely. In other words, they do not need to be where the business is centered. They could be one town away, one state away, cross country, or even international and still perform the job to the best of their ability.
Virtual Assistants have become so popular that many of them are promoting themselves within certain areas of expertise. One area of expertise that is increasing in popularity within Virtual Assistants is the area of Social Media. You may be now asking yourself “What does a Social Media Virtual Assistant Do?” Well most people understand that social media refers to places online like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare and many others. These areas are a great way to make business contacts and to promote your business and/or services. To be successful using social media for your business, you must put the time and consistency into the task. Often business owners do not have the time to devote to promoting via social media sites. They then hire a Social Media Virtual Assistant also known as a Social Media Manager to stay on top of these sites. Your Social Media Virtual Assistant can of course perform other tasks, but their main area of expertise is working with social media. If you have been considering hiring a Virtual Assistant to do a bit of small business marketing on the many social media sites out there, it is definitely a good idea and can be very lucrative to your business as well.
