Contracts

Having a solid contract is essential to protecting your business. My virtual assistant contract was developed by The Contract Shop and I couldn’t be happier with the product and their on-going support. Each contract is created and reviewed by a licensed attorney. Also, if the laws that govern your area should ever change, you’ll get an updated template. It’s like have a contract lawyer on retainer without the hefty fees.


Stock Photos

Look – I’m not good at taking stylish photos that create a consistent brand image. So, taking my own advice, I outsource what I don’t do well. That’s where Styled Stock Society comes in. They take vibrant, interesting photos and their membership is far more affordable than other stock photo services. Every month, four new photo portfolios are released for download, which means their library of thousands of photos is constantly growing. Check out memberships here.


Finances

Hey! Working for yourself is administratively heavy (until you hire a VA, that is!) Your finances don’t need to be a headache. For as little as $6 a month, Quickbooks Self-Employed will keep all of your business accounts in order. You can even invoice your clients and get paid right through the platform so you aren’t chasing documentation and money all over the place. That’s smart, right?


Email Marketing

With all the email marketing systems out there, how do you know which one to use? Personally, I prefer MailChimp. Here’s why.

  • It’s easy to use.
  • Most websites have a MailChimp integration built in.
  • Their templates and tutorials are top-notch.

Within moments of creating a MailChimp account, you can start building a mailing list and building a communication strategy that keeps you top of mind for your customers. And we all know what that means!
