    Going Virtual - How to Find the Best Virtual Assistant to Partner With

    in Marketing

    Every business experiences growing pains. As entrepreneurs, we are no different. Most often we start out alone, doing everything ourselves. It's not uncommon to find entrepreneurs working VERY long hours, struggling to get all the pieces and parts done in their business. We see them struggle to learn things they need to get done, but really have no business doing themselves...putting together newsletters, setting up websites, creating sales funnels, and so on.

    There comes a point for every entrepreneur...every business really...where enough is enough. It's either expand, or close shop. Working with a virtual assistant has become a well-known, yet still misunderstood concept. How can you really work with someone who's not in your office? How do you know what they are doing? What if they are working on someone else's stuff and charging you for it?

    Virtual Assistance for Authors with Marketing & PR Specialist Michelle Anastasio

    in Business

    My Advertising and Marketing career began in 1998, at the advertising agency, Poster Publicity International in New York City (that later merged with Kinetic Worldwide). My post as "Out-of-Home" Media Specialist and Account Executive included media buying, strategy and planning, and production for "Outdoor" media.  

    The above experience provided a sturdy foundation for the my next role as Senior Media Planner at Media Space Solutions in Norwalk, Connecticut. This position was twofold - both creative and analytical.  I not only oversaw national print campaigns and managed the RFP process for national brands, but I also worked closely with the IT Director to specify, develop, implement and communicate enhancements to PlanET (a proprietary planning tool) and APEX systems.
    With solid marketing and advertising expertise, I worked in a consulting capacity for several years at both Connecticut and New York-based firms to include Team GAT (German American Technologies) and G.E. Pharma. In addition to Print, and Outdoor Media, these varied roles led me to obtain a firm grasp on planning and analysis for trade show marketing, online advertising, and social media management.  

    With varied marketing and media experience fifteen years strong, I decided to launch my own firm (CT Virtual) in 2011. Our "Virtual Assistant Solutions" provide strategy and creative direction to a growing niche. In a time where the publishing industry is undergoing drastic changes, so are the methods for driving traditional PR and Book Marketing services, and this is where my firm comes in. We partner with Authors and Speakers to provide them with cutting edge Marketing, PR, and Creative Services that drive exposure and help them sell more books. Our drive for innovation and excellence is unsurpassed. We form winning strategies and our forte is versatility, as evidenced by our wide-ranging portfolio.

    Is It Time for a Virtual Assistant?

    in Business

    Sometimes a business owner needs a little help but can't justify the expense of an extra employee. Other times, he might need some specialized help that he can't get locally. Today, many business owners are turning to the services of a virtual assistant. And as the industry is evolving, VAs who offer more extensive services are becoming known as online business managers or OBMs.
    In this episode of Business: Engaged!, we talk with Denise Griffitts. She is a nationally recognized virtual assistance industry expert, online business manager (OBM), thought leader, coach and mentor. She is the founder and CEO of Your Office On The Web and Your Virtual Assistant. She'll talk about what a virtual assistant can do for you and how to find one. She'll even share insights for those who might want to become virtual assistants.
