The Best Social Networks for Virtual Assistants

The Virtual Assistant Networking Association or VANA is one of the largest social networks for virtual assistants. Everyone is welcome, from those just starting out in the business to more experienced VAs.

The Virtual Assistant Forums are a friendly community with forums on every subject imaginable that relates to virtual assistance. It’s easy to find support for everything from general virtual assisting to the various niche virtual assistant services to setting up your VA website, promoting your business, and tools that VAs use. You can also find support for legal issues, billing and taxes. You can even get honest advice on difficult situations with clients in their Client Relations forum.

The WAHM Virtual Assistants Forum is another great place for networking with other VAs. Here you can find support from fellow VAs on all sorts of topics. Job leads are frequently shared among the members as well as tips for improving your services. It’s also a good place to find other VAs who might want to start a business with you.

Find Virtual has over a thousand virtual assistant members and is set up for VAs to network and find jobs as well as a place where clients can hire VAs. There are groups that VAs can join based on location, family situation, hobbies, niches, and many other topics. It’s a great place to find VAs who can relate to your situation and get some good advice.

The Virtual Assistance Chamber of Commerce has an application process and they can be a bit selective but this is a good place to network with other serious virtual assistants. It’s better for more established virtual assistants who are past the information-gathering stage.

Facebook has a lot to offer virtual assistants. This is one of the world’s most popular social networks so the sheer number of members makes it a great place to find other VAs as well as to promote your virtual assistance business. Even posting on your friends’ walls can garner interest in your profile which can lead to new clients.

Twitter is another useful social network for VAs. On Twitter, you can follow other virtual assistants and receive tips and updates from them. You can also set up your own account to send brief updates about yourself and your service.
