As a virtual assistant or freelancer, one of the most challenging skills to master when getting started is the art of selling yourself and your services. Many VAs, myself included, had limited sales experience when first starting out, and the idea of selling brings about fear and nerves.
In this post, I’m going to share with you my top three tips for getting comfortable selling your virtual assistant services to help take your business to the next level.
Remember that you’re a salesperson, regardless of your title
Regardless of whether you are a VA, graphic designer, or online business manager, the number one part of your job role is actually sales. Without sales quite simply, there will be no business or income! Every time you interact with new potential customers, I first want you to remember that they’re a PERSON not a dollar sign. The goal is to build real, authentic connections and relationships with people.
