I remember the early days of my Virtual Assistant business, and most small business owners believed that we needed to "push" our message out on various platforms. As social media exploded, those platforms were just another avenue to "post" your latest idea, blog or product for sale. The social media arena is quickly changing. So how do we do engage in the most effective way with our ideal client effectively?

Here are a few tips that I have seen work well for many of my clients. 1. Get to KNOW your fans and followers.

What do they love?
What do they LOVE about you?
Why did they choose to follow you and/or read your blog or comment on your post?
What is their ULTIMATE goal for their business?
For Example, on Facebook, be sure to learn how they came to become your fans and be sure to Welcome Them!

2. Find the common thread that you share with them.

Did they connect with you on Facebook from another platform?
Are they also followers of your blog?
How can you best serve that potential client?
Do they need your advice?
Do they need another expert who can better help them?
What is their "pain point"
One of the reasons that Pinterest has become such a hot trend in 2012 is because people can truly engage with what "connects" them. It is very interesting.

3. Engage, Engage, Engage

Angel http://www.AssistantAngel.com <![CDATA[Become a Virtual Assistant: Be Your Clients Raving Fan]]> http://virtualassistantsocialmedia.com/?p=812 2014-09-11T18:19:30Z 2013-09-01T07:37:25Z Becoming Your Clients Raving Fan is one of the most important things you can do to support your Virtual Assistant client. Believe In the Client’s Vision– Truly believe in the client and what their work vision is. What I mean by that is be selective in the clients you choose to work with. Have it be someone whom you truly enjoy the work they do, recognize their value, and the positive attribute they make to society.

2. Speak the Truth – Be truthful in your marketing. Make sure that you are able to be out there and share their knowledge and expertise with the world. If you do NOT believe in the qualities of your client, it will show in your work to and with that client.

3. Client’s #1 Cheerleader – Many times behind the scenes your client needs someone to tell them what a great job THEY are doing. (This is true for all of us). If they are making a positive impact on the community and the area around them, be sure to tell them! Your encouragement as a Virtual Assistant will help them.

In conclusion, connect with your client and let them know how much you support them and believe in their vision. As you and your client are on the same page with the same goals, it makes all levels of marketing, relating and communication much more effective.

One of the most important skills a Virtual Assistant, Personal Assistant or Administrative Professional will need to fully grasp is time management. Keeping yourself, your email, your calendar AND your clients organized is vital to the success of your VA business.

Without a question the process of: Touch It Only Once has been an immense time saver for me.

Here are some areas of my business where I challenge myself to "Touch It Only Once".

1. Emails - Touch the Email Only Once (file the email, forward, delete, or use it in the future).

Ninja Tip: FollowUpThen (www.FollowUpThen.com) This program allows you to get a reminder message to do something. For example, if I promised a client I will follow up in 3 days, I can bcc: 3days@followupthen.com in the email, and I will get my original email AND a reminder in 3 days in my email inbox. This is a free tool and a HUGE time saver!
