Perfect Teamwork: A Coach and his/her Virtual Assistant
I like to work with different client profiles, that’s what, in my opinion, makes the job interesting.
But if I had to describe my ideal client, I would probably choose an independent coach. I
think that coaches (or public speakers) benefit the most of the skill set that a Virtual Assistant
(VA) has to offer: marketing and self-promotion, organization and administration.
If you think about it, a coach has quite a lot in common with a Virtual Assistant. Both run their
own business, usually as a solo-entrepreneur, both are responsible for their own marketing and
both work with clients on a one on one basis.
In order to “walk the talk”, coaches should focus their energy on what they do best (and what
produces income) and delegate the rest. There are many tasks which a Virtual Assistant can
manage and by doing so, free up time for the core business. Below are a few examples.
What can a VA do for a coach?
Blog Design & Maintenance
Website Design & Maintenance
Search Engine Optimization
Facebook page Design & Maintenance
Social Media Set Up & Management
Welcome Package Creation and Management
New Client Questionnaire Creation and Management
Event promotion (via offline and online marketing)
Autoresponder Set Up & Maintenance
Monthly newsletter creation
Article Submission and Management
Venue research and reservation
Registration of exhibitions and fairs
Contact & Database Management
Survey Creation & Management
These are just examples. Every coach has his/her own specialties and the corresponding tasks.
In most cases a Virtual Assistant will be able to help. Find out more.
