The course will show you where to find clients, the best websites to advertise your services, how to build your reputation with good testimonials, and ultimately how to get set up and build a successful, thriving business, from anywhere in the world.

Module 1 introduces students to what a virtual assistant is. It describes the different types that there are and provides a general outlook on how the industry works.

This module starts by listing down 15 pathways that you can use to decide your line of career. It also provides you with details on how you can provide your services as a virtual assistant.

Module 3 provides a list of companies you can join as a freelancer; essentially a short directory of your prospective employers. This module also guides you on the requirements of each of these companies, what kind of a virtual assistant they need, and how to apply to these companies.

Moreover, for each of the companies mentioned, students will be guided on:

The 4th module of the Virtual Assistant Business Course lists a number of other ways in which you can find work as a virtual assistant. These include:

  • Setting up your own business
  • Advertising yourself on social media forums
  • Advertising via brochures and flyers

This module also lists a few other firms and how you can look for vacancies related to virtual assistance. Lastly, you will learn how you can use social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, to your advantage as a virtual assistant.

Module 5 is a guide to setting up your office at home. It discusses the basic supplies and equipment you will need to set up your own virtual assistant business. This module will also focus on the technical abilities and certain basic software and applications that you will need to set up your office at home and help you as a virtual assistant.

The final module of the Virtual Assistant Business Course discusses, in detail, how to manage your business. It elaborates on how you should develop customer relations, the importance of managing your time, and organising and scheduling your tasks to increase your efficiency, and the kinds of emergencies a virtual assistant can face, and how to deal with each of these.

Lastly, this module highlights the importance of staying on top of your game in the virtual assistant industry. It is crucial that you continuously improve your skillset over time, as the nature of work keeps evolving and by increasing your skillset, you can diversify. Deadlines are important, and thus you need to ensure that your clients receive their due tasks in time, to increase the chance of future employment.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
