Your Virtual Assistant

By: Jan

Hi Denise, I just left you a voice message (very cool!) but am not sure if it went through. I tried to use your recs for How to Easily Create Amazon Affiliate Links, but the short option doesn't seem to work. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if Amazon changed it. I've spent hours with them on the phone, to no avail. I'm trying to get a short link to my Amazon book page that I can use in emails. They say they only provide links for websites. I appreciate any help you can offer!

I used to use it quite a bit for scheduling client tweets and like Debi said every once in awhile something wouldn't go but for the most part it worked fine. It was great to have a lot of info in one login, that was the part I liked best.

Hey Kim, I have used Hootsuite a little bit and it's very nice to have a system to schedule postings to all of the different social media sites; however, I have experienced some bugs on occasion so I make a point to check to make sure the posts are happening when they're supposed to.  Lately, it's been working great.

Hey, folks. I just joined the group. I long for the day when I can start using a VA to help with my content production and project management.

I'm looking to switch from corporate ex. assistant (Mary Kay Cosmetics, Walt Disney Studios, DreamWorks and 12 years in the startup industry) to virtual assistant.  Any words of wisdom?

Thanks a lot for the information!

Hi Jeanette, First you should decide what your niche is going to be. For example, accounting, medical, data processing or marketing. Then you can set up your business as a independent contractor offering these services. You can post your business on places like elance.com, I also recommend you start attending networking groups in your area. There are alot of great forums and books on the subject. Email me and I'd be happy to send you some links. Hope that helps, Kat
