JLVAS - Lead Magnet

When you see a “sign up for my newsletter” on a website, do you click “Yes?” I would put money on your answer being “No, of course not!” And I understand why. We are conditioned to HATE email. Every time you check your email, you likely have dozens of messages sitting in your inbox telling you that “Won a free cruise” or “Your Outlook Email is About to Be Cancelled!” Spam has ruined email, plain and simple. So, why on earth would anyone want to give their email out to a random website?  With all of that in mind, when…

JLVAS New Blog Images-9 Stages of Webinar

When was the last time you attended an in-person seminar or event? I’m going to take a wild guess and say it was sometime before March 2020! Personally, I don’t much miss them because a much more powerful, targeted, and accessible tool has taken their place. A successful webinar! For years, remote seminars and events were a staple in the business world. The problem was that they were expensive and somewhat inconvenient affairs. Though potentially informative to certain people, they usually only attracted limited audiences.  Using real-time video software like Zoom or my favorite Demio, small business owners and entrepreneurs can…

JLVAS New Blog Images-5 ways to wow client with onboarding

I’m a huge believer in going the extra mile to “WOW” my clients. And it all begins in the first interaction I have with them: the client onboarding! It goes back to the earliest days of marketing, before I started this business! In highschool I was a manager at Nordstrom. Yes, highschool! As you can imagine being the youngest manager at Nordstrom made me really, really want to shine!  While I wasn’t wowing clients but instead customers, it was a huge deal to me! I wanted every customer to feel like LITERALLY the most important person in the world, and…

Virtual Assistant 2 hours a week to grow business

What would you do if you had two extra hours every week? As a small business owner, chances are that you’re constantly under incredible time constraints. Your to-do list is continually growing, and it seems like you’re the only one who can get things done.  I remember back when I first started this business, and it was crazy. I was working insane hours to get my business off the ground, but eventually, I had to admit to myself that I was ONE person trying to do the work of an entire team. And yeah, that’s doable over a short period,…

Webinars: Live or Evergreen? How to Decide!

JLVAS New Blog Images-Webinars

Have you ever attended a live webinar? I’m guessing you have, they are everywhere! Personally, I’m a huge fan! While I never really enjoyed traveling to attend in-person seminars because of expensive travel, hotels, and food, webinars are a completely different story. All you need to pay for a webinar is the cost of “entry.” You can safely stay comfy at home and learn everything you’d get from an in-person seminar for a fraction of the cost and time investment.  If you’re a small business owner, I’m sure that the idea of putting on your own webinar has occurred to…

JLVAS New Blog Images-How to choose best social media platforms

How many social media channels do you have for your small business? Many small business owners think they need to post EVERYWHERE on social media. They spend dozens of hours crafting platform-specific posts, commenting, and trying to engage with their audience. And while I applaud their commitment, I am here to tell you that might not be the best use of your time. As a small business owner, you have a limited amount of hours in the day. You can only do so much, and social media is one of the biggest time-sucks ever. That means, if you are planning…

When you hear “social media,” you probably think of Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube. But there are other social media networks out there that can also offer incredible value to a small business owner. For example, Pinterest! In the world of social media, I think that Pinterest is MAJORLY underrated. It’s simply a fantastic place to spend your time online. Unlike Facebook or Twitter, it’s free of much of the “drama” that’s traditionally associated with social media. You can simply log into Pinterest and take a look around for some great content!  But the real magic of Pinterest for a small…
