Last week I had a consultation with a client (shout-out to Candace here!) who asked me an important question:
“Do you think the market for Virtual Assistants has become too saturated? Is there room for another Virtual Assistant out there?”
GREAT question. It’s one I often wondered about myself when I was first considered joining this industry.
So here’s my answer:
There is ABSOLUTELY room for more, high quality Virtual Assistants out there! People out there need YOUR help!
I promise you this is true – I am personally approached by clients looking for skilled VA’s almost every week!
In 2012 there were 51 million (LOTS ‘N LOTS) of new websites created. That’s 51 Million Websites that need to be managed, maintained, supported, promoted, branded, marketed and worked on by people JUST LIKE YOU! And the online world continues to grow and grow. I can foresee a future where almost EVERYONE is working from home with the need for support from Virtual Assistants just like you ‘n me. It’s totally possible…it’s totally PROBABLE. With today’s technology, there’s no need for high-rent office buildings and long commutes…the world is going mobile baby – and you’re getting on board at just the right time.
The ‘magic formula‘ to making it in this business is to find ways to market yourself so that you stand out from all the other Virtual Assistants out there.
- What can you do to be different?
- How can you create a brand that sets you apart?
- It’s imperative that you take time to work on your own, unique ‘vibe’ for your business!
