Push Your Virtual Assistant Business On Social Media

 

This article is particularly helpful to those VA’s who have hit a wall, lost their creative mojo and need a little push to get back on the marketing train.

Get visible on social media

Try these social media tips to help you get more traffic to your social media accounts.

The @handle, profiles & bios:

If your goal is to grow your social media followers then you need to start pushing your handles.  What’s a handle you say?  It’s that @name assigned to your Facebook Page, Twitter, and Instagram Accounts.

Ready? Let’s dive in…

 

Instagram

Your Instagram Bio is your chance to showcase yourself, tell people what you do, what you offer, and offer them something to bite into… We call this Call-To-Action.

Twitter

Just like Facebook, Twitter gives you the opportunity to add an attention-grabbing banner.

Facebook

Facebook has a place for an attention-grabbing banner but that’s not all, once you have added your banner, be sure to write a caption with a clear Call-To-Action.

Having a @handle that is relevant to your Facebook Page makes it easier for people to tag you in comments & posts.  Often VA’s or business owners, even clients will recommend you to others, being able to tag your Business Page makes it easy for them to refer you.

Pinterest

Pinterest doesn’t have an @handle but this social media channel is a big thing for VA’s, well it can be if you use it correctly. Fill out your profile with all the correct information, add your URL & create boards to group relevant pins together.

  • Boost a post, once the boost is complete click on the Likes and then Invite all those people who like your post but who are not following.

    So many great tips here. It’s so important to be visible on social media. If you’re not visible, how will your ideal client ever find you?

    These are fantastic tips. I had not thought of putting my @handles on business cards. Looks like that is on my to-do list for the new year! Thank you 🙂
