Your Wishlist Virtual Assistant

Finding your best Virtual Assistant can be rough, much like dating. Some websites like Upwork or Fiverr help us sort through hiring options, but really, it’s like Tinder. Sometimes the profiles seem great, and their work quality is horrible. Other times, you skip out on the ones that could have been perfect because of something their profile said.

But, also like Tinder, the more you do it, the better you get at it and the easier it is to find the types of individuals that suit your needs and that match your expectations. The key? Make sure you know what it is you want to accomplish with the use of a Virtual Assistant.

First, you need to know what kind of Virtual Assistant you’re looking for. Since today we’re looking at a WishList Virtual Assistant, you won’t want to find someone who specializes in social media, book keeping, or administrative work. Of course, it’s nice to find someone who can do it all! However, don’t expect someone who does administrative work to be an expert in the TECHNOLOGICAL side of Virtual Assistants.

This means you need to do a bit of research as to what it is that you need. The research will pay off. You will be able to frame your expectations clearly. Now, if you need someone who specializes in the techie side of business management and help, you will need to find what programs you would like help in.

So what knowledge does a WishList Virtual Assistant need?

  1. WishList SetUp

At its most basic, you should at the very least be able to expect your Virtual Assistant to be capable of setting up a WishList membership site on your WordPress page. They need to know how to connect the WordPress site with the management software. If your Virtual Assistant knows how to do this at the very least, the learning curve to learn other WishList skills will be very slight.

  1. Membership Levels

Create multiple membership levels. This helps refine your membership so you can offer various products and promotions.

Whether it’s looking for a new hair stylist in a new city, finding someone to properly grout your tiles, or finding someone to help grow your business, referrals count.

Why? Well do you trust every advertisement or average Joe who tells you to hire them? referrals

Pictures can be photoshopped, and people can talk the talk.

It is our friends, coworkers, and general trustworthy acquaintances and online communities we listen to. Advertising is undoubtedly an important part of business growth and customer acquiring. However, it is referrals that help you find the most loyal and reliable customers.

According to a Nielson survey of 58 different countries, 84% said they trust the recommendations of people they know. Moreover, 68% percent said they would even trust referrals from online sources. With the increasing presence of online forum communities, the circles of people we trust are expanding, opening up many more opportunities for quality referrals. Regardless of who gives the recommendations, we are more likely to double check with the people we trust to verify advertisements we might see.

Referrals are the key to finding customers who will not only choose your business, but will continue to invest and afford you longer future returns. How do we know this? According to a study of a German bank’s customer base, conducted by the American Marketing Association’s Journal of Marketing, referred customers were:
