How to Find VA Clients Without Social Media

Freelancers don’t have to create a dazzling social media presence. I’ve been there too, feeling the pressure to shine in the social media spotlight. But I realized most of my clients didn’t even look for me on Instagram or Facebook. It was through word-of-mouth referrals and professional networks. These connections were a far more effective and less exhausting way of finding potential clients.

I’ve watched so many fellow freelancers go all out on social media, trying to outdo each other. What really matters is having a simple and genuine online presence and making solid connections in the right places.

In this episode, you learn:

  • How social media can actually be a waste of time when you’re starting out.
  • You don’t have to offer social media services- there are plenty of other tasks you can do!
  • Using a referral network to your advantage to find VA clients.
  • The best way to set up a minimal viable presence on your socials.

If you’re feeling frustrated and overwhelmed because you’re struggling to find clients as a freelancer or virtual assistant without social media, tune in. You don’t have to do social for work, and you don’t have to do social as promotion. Let that idea go. It’s not true. I’m walking proof.
