I have been a Virtual Assistant for the past 7 years for a small handful of clients. My main client retired and I've set up a website to begin marketing.
Before I begin, I would love to hear feedback from the 48days community. Let me know what you think of the site. Additions/subtractions/changes. All comments and feedback is appreciated.
My site is VirtualRoxanne.com
Thanks Claudia!! I will take that into consideration. Always open to suggestions!
I added a picture of my laptop hyperlinked to my contact page with a call to action on it.
I really like your website. When I am tired I don't like reading too much and your website is greatly organized for someone that wants to scan your site for the information they want. You answered a lot of questions that someone would potentially ask. Within 2 to 3 minutes of looking at the site I would be interested or would recommend you to someone who needed a virtual assistant. I like the laptop at the bottom of the page.
Since you don't really have a company logo your picture is almost like a logo. I think you have a good professional looking photo but maybe could invest in a professional headshot, something simple and not expensive that you could use across social networks. Also Great Website URL its always good when you have a search keyword in your website url.
I like it.
Sooooooo many people avoid posting their rates, and it's a huge turn-off for me.
On your site, it's simple to estimate what you can potentially do for a client so it's perfect!
You provided great information and it is easy to understand what you do. I would recommend a good head shot and call to action on the sidebar. Maybe add a couple more testimonies with the persons title and company.
For those of you recommending a professional head shot. I won't have it done for some time now as I just got my teeth pulled a couple days ago. So that's out of the question right now. Also, I feel that it's important for people to see you as you really look. I don't know how many times I went to meet with someone and the person I met looked NOTHING like their photo. I felt like an idiot when they introduced themselves and I had no idea it was them. It is my belief that you should put a photo of you as you really are, not a glamor shot that looks nothing like you.
Call to action in the sidebar, I agree with. Thank you!
As for testimonials, my time was spent working mainly for one client over the past 6 years. Those are the only testimonials I have right now. As I get more, I will certainly add them.
I like the site. As a VA myself I know that the list of services provided can go on forever; however, I would recommend perhaps creating a pull down list and sort by category so people do not feel overwhelmed.
Also, you may want to design yourself a logo or if you have one place it on your site. The graphic you have on FB is really cute.
My one other suggestion is your picture. I know you don't want a professional picture but I always suggest having nothing in the background. I get many compliments on my photo and have even had clients ask me where I had it done.. I did it myself..in my bathroom at like 2 am (I didn't have a tripod and the bathroom shelves were the right height). My point being a professional picture does not have to be professionally taken.
