How to Introduce New Services to Your Existing Clients

One of the best ways I think you can help your clients is identifying gaps you see that you can help with, and let them know that.

Yes, they might say no and that they’re satisfied with the work you’re currently doing for them.

BUT, they also might say yes!

It’s easier to secure a sale with people who have already said yes to you – so it’s worth a shot by just letting them know (with no pressure!)

How to Combine Services to Build Your Own Custom VA Services

The thing that’s great about being a Virtual Assistant is the freedom of combining your services.

If you’re not sure what kind of services you’d like to offer, you can always try it for a little bit.

Your best bet when figuring out your best service combination is testing and gaining experience.

Experience is nothing but a good thing, and you’ll learn about your preferences + what you’re good at!

The goal is to find something you enjoy, pays you what you’re wanting to be paid (or has the potential to scale to that), and gives you the lifestyle you want.
