How Our Virtual Assistants Can Help You Create Landing Pages That Actually Convert

While checking out your website analytics one day, you realize something: Your new website has brought in a ton of visitors over the past month, but none of them are staying on your site — or buying what you have to offer!

For business owners, this can be incredibly frustrating. You’ve invested time and money hiring a website design firm. Also, you’ve ensured that people would be able to find you on Google through your site’s SEO … However, now you can’t seem to get people to take out their credit card and actually take the next step.

That’s where our Virtual Assistant Staffer can help. When it comes to lead generation, our SEO virtual assistants can help you create an inbound marketing strategy to get people to your website. Additionally, you’ll receive help with offer incentives, and create a clear call to action on your landing pages. In so doing, that will help generate and convert more website visitors into customers.

How our VA Staffers Can Help YOU

By creating a strategic inbound marketing strategy to get people to your website

Content creation and marketing has never been easier with the help of the Internet. It’s also never been harder. The explosion of the Web has added a lot of noise to the background that makes it more difficult for your business or brand to be found online unless you already rank high in search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

Our VAs can do research to locate keywords and phrases that people are typing into Google to find businesses like yours. That way we can help you understand what exactly your customers are searching for. That’s our goal: For your website to be the answer to the user’s Google query.

Of all the methods you can use to gain search engine traffic, the best one is to be the solution that people are already looking for.  

By creating an offer/incentive to download on your landing pages

Once people are actually on your page, you need to have a way to capture their information to convert visitors into leads. A great way to do this is by offering something of value for download. It could be a whitepaper on the benefits of Instagram marketing or an e-book on the basics of Search Engine Optimization.

This method provides value in two ways: You are capturing the email of the person (and potential customer) downloading your information. Meanwhile, the viewer receives something of value in return for providing their contact information.

The more creative and beneficial download you create, the more you will be rewarded with emails and lead-capturing.

By creating a clear call to action

Your call to action is the immediate action that you desire your website viewers to take. “Watch this video.” “Shop now.” “Sign up now.” “Contact us today.” Whatever your call to action may be, it needs to ask people to take the next step in the sales conversion funnel.

Refrain from making multiple calls to action or having multiple landing pages with a different CTA. There should only be one thing for the customer to focus on; don’t distract them with tons of other requests. Always make it as easy and compelling as possible for the customer.

By creating social proof

As humans are incredibly social beings, we place greater value on things that other people have already approved or validated.

That means if you want your business to become more successful, you need to “show off” the success you’ve already had. Ask some of your best clients for video or written testimonials talking about the great return on investment you’ve been able to provide for them. Keep an update page of all press mentions and publications that have featured your company.

Even if you are just starting out, a few strong quotes from associates or clients can prove that your company really is providing for the “social good.”

TAKE BACK YOUR TIME!

Our team can save you a ton of time and energy that can be better spent elsewhere. 

You know that already, that’s why you’re here!

What if you had the FULL contact info for potential clients?

You already know the customer persona of your ideal client — what business they are in, how old they are, where they live, and how much they spend on your product or service. But spending the time to research and find each customer out there leaves you with little time to actually serve your current customers and grow your business.

Let’s say you are an auto parts manufacturer and you want to contact all of the auto repair shops in your state in order to sell them your products. That means manually searching for all the repair shops on Google and Bing, keeping a log of them in Microsoft Excel, and reaching out to them one by one to offer your sales pitch. Day in and day out, you will need to keep an updated client leads list of all the businesses that pop up around your area — whether locally or throughout the state.

Or let’s say you are a journalist and you are looking for people to interview for your local newspaper. You are writing a story about all the traffic accident fatalities in the last year in your country, and you need to find a very specific group of people to interview. But with all the other stories and deadlines to juggle, you’re working overtime to try and find those sources.

But what if there was a way to automatically compile and manage a list of leads FOR you so that you could focus on running your business or writing your stories?

In today’s business environment, it’s more important than ever to be able to delegate tasks to free up your valuable time.

In fact, according to a study on time management conducted by the Institute for Corporate Productivity, 53 percent of the 332 polled companies have “somewhat high” or “high” level concern about the time management skills of their employees, and 46 percent feel the same way about worker delegation skills.

That’s because, as any entrepreneur knows, time equals money. And time squandered means money will be wasted.

Do you need to find all of the plumbers, locksmiths, IT people or companies in your state? Maybe you clientele are doctors, lawyers and accountants. Whatever your target market is, and whoever your ideal client is, VA Staffer will make sure that we create a detailed client leads list that is consistently updated with all the new information that becomes available.

But what about the cost?

Believe it or not, we have developed software that uses Google’s API to grab all of the information we need. And since our VA staffers are based overseas, this service is much less expensive than it would be to hire a full-time employee at your company. Our expert VAs will then check the results for accuracy and make sure we are only giving you the best, most qualified information.

You know your product or service is perfect for your ideal customers. Now let us work with you to be able to find and contact all of them. Give us a call today at 971-599-7698 to see how we can help you grow your business.

Frustrated with Optimize Press? Three Ways Our Virtual Office Assistants can Help

Imagine you were doing some Christmas shopping online. You want to buy some locally-made, hand-poured candles for your mum, so you Google around until you find a business man or woman in your area who makes handmade candles. But when you click on their website, you are met with a mess of a homepage, some basic “about” “service” and “contact” tabs at the top. So…where can you actually buy the product?

Unfortunately, too many small business owners face this problem. While you might have a WordPress site for your business already, you may not know that it is just as important to have relevant landing pages to operate as the sales funnel.

One of the tools many people use to create landing pages is OptimizePress, which advertises “high converting landing pages, sales pages and membership portals.” But as with any such tool, it’s also more complicated than advertised. It takes time to come up with a concept and enough design skill to create something that doesn’t look like an amateur.

But what if you had help in creating these custom landing pages so that customers know exactly where to go? Instead of randomly clicking around, our virtual office assistants at VA Staffer can help you design flexible landing pages with creative calls to action that can get the kind of traction you desire from your business website.

OptimizePress is customizable, but difficult to change.

One of the great buying points about OptimizePress is that you can create completely custom member portals, allowing you to “create the design of your dreams” that will capture your audience. However awesome that sounds, the reality is much more difficult, especially if you have little experience in web design. At VA Staffer, our virtual office assistants have years of experience creating custom login forms, module listings, and breadcrumb trails that will lead the customer TO the page they desire. Take all the guesswork out of creating landing pages yourself and let one of our experienced SEO Virtual Assistants do it for you!

Multiple landing pages can slow site speed.

Another frustration business owners commonly experience is that, as their business grows, they want to add on more landing pages to accommodate new products or expansion. However, doing so can slow down your site speed which can also hurt your SEO ranking. Faster pages both rank higher and convert more leads, so improving page speed and site speed is advantageous to your business in more ways than one.

Google says: “Faster sites create happy users and we’ve seen in our internal studies that when a site responds slowly, visitors spend less time there. But faster sites don’t just improve user experience; recent data shows that improving site speed also reduces operating costs. Like us, our users place a lot of value in speed — that’s why we’ve decided to take site speed into account in our search rankings.”

Never has site speed been so important — and luckily, our VA staffers are experts in it.

Even a website with good copy and landing pages can have trouble ranking in Google.

Though Google’s algorithm is constantly changing, and making minor tweaks almost daily, there have been a few constants that search engines seek out. One of those constants is website authority, in which Google measures equal parts of your social media presence, the amount of fresh content on your website, and the number of other websites linking to your site. Known as backlinks, these links can be the key to quickly improving your page rank in Google. The best kind of backlink building is when someone mentions your site within the content on their site, or if someone mentions you who has a higher authority ranking than you do. However, any backlink building will improve your page rank.

Using our VA staffers to customize your OptimizePress landing pages for search and site speed saves you valuable time that you can spend focusing on growing your business instead of worrying about how people will find your site. For more information visit our website

7 Virtual Assistant Productivity Hacks

7 Virtual Assistant Productivity Hacks

You are the core of your business. You are the founder and you are the heart.

As such, you will most likely drown in so many tasks that you’ll either burn out by trying to do everything, or you won’t be doing anything at all.

Here’s the number one productivity hack for all business founders though:

You don’t have to do everything yourself!

Better yet: You SHOULD NOT be doing everything yourself.

Gell B

SEO Content Writer

Gell is a 4 year virtual assistant who lives to write, blogs with passion, and loves to learn new things. She is an avid fantasy fiction reader and has 5 dogs keeping her company. She also has her own blog which she uses to help her fellow Filipinos succeed online.

There are 3 simple reasons for this:

  1. There are some tasks that you may not like doing because you don’t know exactly how to do them.
  2. There are some tasks that you may not like doing because they are time consuming.
  3. There are some tasks that you may not like doing because they are repetitive.

Simply put, as the founder of your business, your time is valuable and limited. You have to choose what to tasks are more important so you can focus on them.

And what about the other tasks, you ask? Cal Newport is one of those who understands how important it is to get things done by setting a schedule and stick to it.

Delegate. Hire a Virtual Assistant. Behold 7 Virtual Assistant Productivity Hacks

#1: The Social Hack

For almost any kind of business nowadays, social media is a way to reach more customers, build your audience, and market your product.

But maintaining your social media accounts ends up being very time consuming because you can easily get distracted, or it may end up very repetitive and boring to a point where you don’t want to do it anymore.

Hiring a VA with social media marketing skills would take this task off of your plate. They can spend about an hour to a couple of hours a day managing and keeping your social media accounts up to date.

#2 The Email Hack

Your inbox can easily suck you in and waste your time without you even noticing.

For most people, they check their inbox first thing in the morning, and when they finally finish going through all their emails, they’ll notice that two hours has already passed.

That’s two hours that could have been spent elsewhere.

When you have a VA, you can share your password with them using a tool like Lastpass, and have them sift through your email before you do.

They will act as a gatekeeper in this capacity.

You can provide a template for your VA to use as response for generic or common emails. Your VA can also delete the spam and unimportant emails.

This way, when you get into your inbox, only the more important emails are left, and you’ll be in and out in no time.

#3 The Leads Hack

Lead generation is important, but it gets repetitive, and usually is time consuming as well.

What you can do is create an SOP for generating leads – a set of qualifying questions, a set of protocols and procedures to follow, etc. Then get a VA to generate your leads for you.

In doing this, you ensure that when it’s your turn to talk to the leads, they are mostly warm and hot leads already.

No more cold calling. No more pre-qualifying.

Your VA can screen your prospects and forward to you those that are already qualified to be your clients/customers.

#4 The Voice Hack

Being at the beck and call of your customers is important. This shows them that you are taking care of them and that you want to help.

But you can’t do this efficiently all by yourself, simply because you have other things to attend to.

A customer service representative can help you out with this.

This also applies for any type of voice calling or email handling.

Your VA can be your voice. He/she can handle the more generic calls and only forward to you the calls that are extremely urgent and really need your personal attention.

#5 The Content Hack

Nowadays, whatever business you’re running, you most probably need a website. And a website needs content.

If you’re natural born writer, and if you have the time to write, then good.

But if not, then a VA with writing skills can write the content for you.

After the initial content of your website, your VA can post a couple of times a week on your blog to keep your website updated.

#6 The Tech Hack

Some people are good with tech. Some are just not.

If you’re not, it’s fine. You don’t have to be good at tech because really, it’s so easy to be stuck fiddling with settings and design and all that stuff.

You can just hire a VA with tech skills to do this for you.

Just let him/her know what you want your website to look like and what functionalities you want it to have.

#7 The To Do Hack

Okay, now that you have all these tasks to delegate to your VA, you also have to know that delegating can be hacked to make your VA more productive.

It’s simple: Just make sure that the tasks you provide you VA are as detailed as possible.

Give them an overview of the general thing that you want them to do, like “Write Content.”

Then give more detailed sub tasks, like “1 post for topic#1. Post to WordPress. Share on social media.”

This will give your VA a clear cut view of what they need to do so they can execute their job faster and more efficiently.

I hope you’ve gotten some great ideas from our 7 Virtual Assistant Productivity Hacks on how to get you moving!
