No ads on your service site

If you have a website where you are selling your services please, do not put ads on your site. Putting Google ads on your service provider site will only send people to other sites, maybe to people who charge less than you, so please DO NOT DO THAT!

Now, if you offer a service and want to recommend other services that go outside of your niche, that might be a fine thing to do, but be careful. This can be a very tricky thing. What you might try instead is to use your client newsletter to recommend services or products rather than your website.

If you are a service provider your service provider blog / website is NOT an affiliate website and you are not a blogger, you are a service provider. Your focus should be to highlight the services you offer. Each blog post should answer questions that a potential client may have about YOU and YOUR services.

If you are a service provider your service provider blog / website should not sell “HOW TO DO MY JOB YOURSELF” eBooks and reports. Instead, if you want to delve into teaching others how to do the service you are doing, start a separate website / blog for just that.

Potential clients want to know that you are serious. If they think you’re trying to be an affiliate marketer, or a guru in your field they are not going to hire you. A virtual assistant client relationship needs to be long term in order to best service your clients because in every situation there is a learning curve on both ends.

The client has to teach you what he or she needs, wants and expects, and you have to teach your clients your procedures. This takes time, if they think you’re going off to “greener” pastures by selling HOW TO eBooks they’re going to move on. So make sure your service provider website sticks to the message that you are available, that you can do xyz, and that you’re ready to work right now.
