Did you know there is more than one type of Virtual Assistant?

Honestly, I doubt it even crossed your mind, to be honest, but there’s a VA for everything.  Some VAs wear several hats, while others perform a specific task to a phenomenal ability.

Here are five types of Virtual Assistant that can help you.

Administrator

Admin VAs perform the admin tasks of the business.  This is probably the most common type of Virtual Assistant and the reason VAs are called VAs.  Taking on the role of a virtual office assistant, they handle emails, book appointments, liaise with clients, and handle travel plans.

Content Creators

Virtual Assistants often make great Content Creators.  Many Virtual Assistants, like myself, come into the business through blogging.  As a result of the skills developed in the blogosphere, they are capable of writing great content and often know how to focus around keywords.  However, make sure don’t confuse them with Marketing or Social Media VAs.

Digital Marketer and Social Media Consultants

Many Content Creators also package themselves as Digital Marketing Experts and Social Media Consultants.  These VAs have an intimate knowledge of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). They can quickly adapt written copy to an engaging, search engine friendly piece of marketing.

Website Designer

These days, anyone can build a simple website courtesy of WordPress.  However, most VAs who come through blogging will have an excellent understanding of WordPress and how to make it work for you and your business.

Graphics

VAs are used to keeping their own social media running, and creating their own images and literature.  They will use specific software to provide a clean and professional finish.  A graphic design VA will have many finished articles in their portfolios such as flyers, posters, brochures, magazines and books.
