If you are a Virtual Assistant a.k.a. VA or thinking about launching your own VA business, you need a website to help you book those dream clients.
Like with any business, it’s a great idea to have your own website as this is something that you own and isn’t going to be randomly deleted or not get seen by your audience because of some strange algorithm changes.
Your website is what’s going to convert leads into clients and make you stand out from all of the other VAs out there.
As a VA, your website is going to serve as your services “menu”, your lead capture, your portfolio, and an insight into you as a person!

3 | Testimonials
We mentioned testimonials above but it deserves its own paragraph.
Potential clients want to know how you have helped past clients achieve their goals. Having testimonials on your website can help prospects feel more comfortable reaching out to you because they can see how much you’ve already helped other business owners.
Just starting out? No worries! It’s perfectly fine to use past co-workers and bosses as your testimonials until you get your VA business up and going. Just be clear in describing the capacity at which you worked with these individuals.

4 | Contact information
This may seem like an obvious suggestion but you would be surprised at how many websites don’t have their contact information front and center!
Since you are building your VA business, you probably want potential clients to contact you in some way.
Make that contact information available on every page of your website.
Whether you want someone to call you or email you it doesn’t matter. Your audience should know how to contact you no matter what page they are on. You don’t want to miss out on any potential clients!

5 | Amazing content
There are several reasons why you should be sharing some type of content on your website: Google likes websites that are regularly updated, it can show off your expertise, it builds relationships with your audience, etc.
But your content doesn’t necessarily have to be a blog. It could be videos or podcasts.
Just make sure this content is hosted on your website so you can drive search and social media traffic back to your site. You should always be looking for ways to drive traffic back to your VA website.

6 | CTAs
Call to actions (CTAs) are a key feature to any website. Every page and blog post on your VA website should have at least one CTA.
Sometimes, people need to be told reminded what to do. Drive them to sign up for your email newsletter, leave a comment on your blog post, pick up the phone to call you…these are all only example of CTAs you can use on your website. The options are endless!
You want your readers to take action after landing on a page of your website, so focus on creating strong CTAs to get the best results.
