Start Working With Clients

I’ve had many new Virtual Assistants or those thinking of starting a VA business ask “What are the bare bones you need to take on clients?” So, I thought I would create a quick checklist of the things I think you need (in no particular order).

What Do You Really Need To Start Taking On VA clients?

  • Know how much you need to earn.
  • What services you are offering.
  • A reliable internet connection and computer.
  • Email.
  • A client contract.
  • Your business policies documented.
  • A way to get paid.
  • A task management system to keep track of everything you need to get done and when.
  • Cloud storage such as DropBox.
  • Phone or Skype.

If you need help setting it all up have a look at the Getting Started Training. It’s an affordable membership program for anyone wanting a long-term successful VA business.

What do you think?

I’d love to hear your comments. Please take a moment to leave me a comment and share your thoughts.

Please share if you know someone who might benefit from this information.

Thanks for reading!

Enjoy your day – Susan

    As additional to the above items you list how about the following:

    @ target market
    @ how are you going to market your services
    @ good internet presence – website – listings in online business directories
