Virtual Assistant Course – Module 2

May 30, 2018 No Comments

We are gradually making progress with this course. Thanks to all participants, I feel encouraged.

The second module of this course is niche discovery and we’ve treated it partially in the break down of Module 1. If you missed it, go here to register for this course, take the first module, and I will also send you the worksheet andΒ  suggested answers to each question in the Module.

What we will be doing in this Module is just to shed light on niche discovery and why it’s essential for anyone looking to become a virtual assistant.

What is a niche?

Dictionary.com defines niche as a comfortable or suitable position in life or employment.

The above definition is perfect for describing niche in a virtual assistance business.

First of all, you need to be comfortable with using typical work tools such as a computer system and productivity tools.

There are several apps and tools for several skill set and industries. You need to really look at all the options available and match them to your skill set.

E.g. If you know how to design websites using templates from content management systems such as WordPress, that’s a skill. The next thing you should do is match your skill to design apps such as Canva and image editing tools such as Lunapic, etc.

With the above, you will be able to position yourself as a virtual assistant who designs websites using WordPress. This is your niche and it’s quite different from being a programmer who codes websites from scratch.

As you can see, both of you are into building websites but with different skill set.

Of course, you don’t have to remain in your comfort zone. You should expand your skill set by all means and learn new things everyday.

In the world of virtual assisting, the more skills you have coupled with the more experience you gain, the more rewarding it becomes.

Exercise

  • In your notebook, list your skills and match them to work tools using the example I gave above to find your niche
  • Refer to the worksheet in Module 1 and match your niche to industry(ies) you would like to serve.
  • Write down a rough pitch. E.g. I help event planners create beautiful websites that convert.
  • Go ahead and match more of your skill set with work tools.
  • Hit the reply button to send me your skill set and rough pitch so we can modify them together.

See you next week with Module 3.
