Get Clients as a New Virtual Assistant

I remember how exciting it was to land my first clients– individuals who were actually looking for the exact services I could offer. The key was understanding their pain points, tailoring my services to fit their needs, and building trust with my follow-through and genuine interest in their businesses.

One thing I always emphasize is the power of building a personal brand and getting known for your work. By establishing yourself as a digital marketing assistant, you’ll find that clients will start coming to you for help.

In this episode, I cover how

  • to break away from Facebook groups and tap into new client sources.
  • specialization can lead you to clients willing to pay premium prices.
  • to lay the foundation and build a portfolio without prior experience.
  • being part of the Unicorn Digital Marketing Assistant School will help you find clients.

I know some of you might be worrying about not having previous experience in this field. But don’t worry, you don’t need it! You just need to find a way to transfer your existing skills to the online space. The world of virtual assistance is incredibly diverse, and there’s a place for everyone in it. Keep growing your skillset, and most importantly, keep learning.
