As a virtual assistant, you are going to be working with one or multiple companies on a daily basis. This may seem simple enough, but if you do not put forth your best effort as a virtual administrator, you will see quickly that you are either not getting the best clients you can or losing clients because you are not putting the work in on your end to show them what an asset you are to their company.
Meadows VA School compiled a list of Virtual Assistant Best Practices that should be followed to become successful in the industry. Below is a snippet of the four main components of the best practices.
Communicating with you and your clients is a key to success. Without knowing what you may be doing for work on the other end of the computer, a company may believe you aren’t doing the work they asked of you.
Communicating with clients should be discussed before work begins and how many times you should be communicating per day or per week should be established.
Check-ins allow you to check in for any new work you may need to complete and also shows you are taking the initiative to keep your client updated on what you are working on and what you have completed.
