Clarity on your marketing messaging
Your business goals are on point, but how are they translating into your marketing and online presence? A content virtual assistant can help you define really clear goals for marketing in relation to your business goals, and a content strategy to help you achieve them. Sometimes blogs and posting on social media can feel like shouting into the abyss, but with clear messaging and goals, you know that you’ll be heard by the right people – your potential clients.

A VA who specialises in SEO can create and optimise content for your website including researching keywords, creating meta descriptions and building those all important backlinks. You’ll rank higher in Google’s results pages and attract more traffic to your site.

Literally a Social Media Manager virtual assistant’s full time job. They are abreast of all the latest trends and can create creative content for your channels that will stand out against your competitors.
Variety of content
Creating a variety of content is important for engaging your audience and keeping them interested in your business. However, coming up with new ideas can be challenging, especially if you’re working alone. A virtual assistant can help you brainstorm new content ideas, create different types of cross channel content (such as videos, infographics, or email marketing), and repurpose old content into new formats. Your content will stay fresh and relevant, and your audience will alway have something new to look forward to.
Consistency in content creation
If content is king, consistency is key. Your output could be incredible, but if it’s only being released every so often, your audience will probably miss it and you won’t see the results you’re hoping for. A virtual assistant can help you maintain a consistent content creation schedule by creating a content calendar, researching topics, and creating high-quality content on a regular basis. You’ll improve your search rankings, and establish yourself as a thought leader among your industry and community.
