You’re not a blogger. You’re a VA. I get it.
But surprise! You’re a self-made soulpreneur on a mission to create the high-vibe lifestyle of your dreams and you, my friend, will be wearing many hats along your VA career path.
Blogger doesn’t HAVE to be one of them, but it should be.
Listen, I was on the same rickety boat you may be currently on. Overwhelmed. Stressed. Not an extra minute in the day for self-care, never mind blogging.
I got myself off that boat and into one that sails much smoother. That’s why I’m here, writing to you, offering tips and resources day in and day out–to reach out a helping hand and offer a seat on this much more tranquil boat.
Today I’m sharing with you the importance of blogging. Like many of the business ventures you will be embarking on, blogging is an initial investment of time, but one that will pay off tenfold in the long run if you stick to it.
Here Are 5 Reasons Your Virtual Assistant Business Needs A Blog
1. Gets You Found
This is the number reason you need a blog. A blog increases visibility in this big world wide web. Unfortunately, a beautifully designed website is just not enough to get you ranked on the first page of search engines. When people search “Virtual Assistant for (insert your industry)” your goal should be to rank on that first page. Blogs can help with that by using appropriate keywords that strengthen SEO. The more content you create, the more organic traffic you will drive to your site.
2. Inserts Authority
A blog is a great way to insert authority in your field and establish yourself as an expert. By sharing tips, how tos, and resources, your potential dream client is more likely to trust you and therefore hire you.
3. Keeps Your Audience Updated
Unlike an evergreen, stagnant website, a blog is ever changing with fresh, new content. This is the perfect platform to create buzz over new offerings, milestones, and launches. Let your clients and potential clients know you are a flourishing business with exciting announcements on your blog.
4. Build Your Email List
If you think email is dead, think about how much time you just spent on emails today. They are far from dead. As a matter of fact, they’re alive, thriving and the perfect intimate space to convert leads into clients. Your blog is the perfect tool to build that list.
5. It’s fun!
Blogs don’t have to be all boring business–as a matter of fact, they shouldn’t be. This is YOUR blog, so showcase YOUR personality and write from the heart. Your blog doesn’t have to be “perfect” (whatever that means), it just has to be consistent, resourceful and authentically you.
