设置自己为虚拟助手

Setting yourself up is a 虚拟 assistant is an exciting step but one which should not be taken without some serious consideration. Below is a series of questions you 需要 to ask yourself and a short list steps you should take to put yourself on the road to success.

1.考虑自己工作和在家工作是否适合您?对于大多数人来说,为自己工作和在家工作听起来很理想。通常的看法是,当您感到自己跌跌撞撞地下床时,便去睡衣上班,并在白天看电视来娱乐您。您可以这样做,但您不会赚很多钱。要在家中经营自己的成功企业,需要有自律性,决心,专注,毅力,决心和努力。您还必须考虑到自己将花费大量时间,有时可能会觉得自己被困在家里已经好几天了。你能应付吗?话虽如此,它带来了巨大的好处,没有办公室上班的麻烦,有机会设定适合您的时间,独立性和经营自己的生意的满意度等等。只需花时间确定自己是否适合在家中经营自己的企业,然后双脚跳进去并辞去目前正在支付账单的工作。

2. Do you have the necessary skills and experience? This may sound obvious but in order to succeed as a 虚拟 assistant you really 需要 to have great organisational and time management skills as well as all infallible administration skills. You will also be asked time and again by prospective clients about your previous experience, so it's important to be prepared for this by keeping your CV updated. You must also consider continued learning. As you are no longer an employee, it will be up to you to find the time and finance to further and update your skills as technology progresses.

3.决定如何管理时间。确定每周将花费多少时间,将每天划分为适合您的小时数,不要忘了包括午休,茶水等,然后坚持下去。这样做听起来听起来很合理,但是由于需要洗衣服,做家务或购物而使您的注意力转移到其他地方太容易了。在不知不觉中,一周结束了一半,您将工作到深夜才能赶上。在很多情况下,向亲人清楚一点也很重要,因为仅仅是因为您在家中,并不意味着您不在工作中,请确保他们继续承担应有的家务劳动,否则他们很容易咬住您的工作时间。还考虑到分配给您的时间"working time"您还必须包括花在运行和扩展业务上的时间。您将需要花一些时间来更新技能,自己开具发票和帐户,进行业务营销等,以及花在处理客户项目上的时间。

4. Decide how much money you can invest in your business. You may well already have the basics, but consider that you will 需要 the following as a minimum. a. A reliable, stable pc or laptop - preferably two - with a solid virus protection and back up and recovery system. You will also 需要 the last versions of the software you will be using. b. A printer, scanner and copier and possibly a fax machine. c. A telephone with answering machine facility and one or more incoming telephone lines. d. A desk, chair, filing system, storage etc. e. You will 需要 a headed paper, compliments slips, business cards, etc. f. You will also 需要 a web site of your own to advertise your "virtual"互联网上的业务。如果您还没有一个,www.ukava.couk可以提供一个便宜的设计,让您开始。看到 http://www.ukava.co.uk/html/web_site_design.html

Also consider that as your business grows, or you offer more varied services, you may 需要 additional equipment.

5. Do your research. This is where the Internet will become your best friend. Research the role of the 虚拟 assistant and what support, training and interaction is available. Most current 虚拟 assistants receive frequent emails from would-be 虚拟 assistants asking them for employment but understand now that the vast majority of 虚拟 assistants are one-person businesses and do no outsource work. Appreciate therefore that when it comes to finding clients, no one is going to do it for you.

Make sure you do your research thoroughly and find out what services your competition are offering and what they are charging for them. Where there are testimonials on other 虚拟 assistants web sites, have a look at the type of clients that are using their services, what industries are they in? Are they small businesses or sole proprietors? You could try looking for similar types of clients.

It's at this stage also that you should consider the legal implications of being self-employed. You will 需要 the advice of an accountant with regards to personal taxation, vat and other such issues and you should also consider your legal responsibilities such as data-protection, client confidentiality and insurance, etc. If you have never been self-employed before, you may also wan to enrol in a

6.编写业务计划。不要吟!即使您不需要银行贷款即可上手,因此从技术上讲可能也不是"need" a business plan, it's an essential tool to keep you on track and focussed on how you are running your business. Include in your business plan details of how much money you will invest in your business and in what equipment, the hours you intend to work on customer projects, the hours you intend to work on running your business, how you will market your services, the services you will offer, the types of clients you will be targeting, etc. You will also 需要 to include details of how much you will be charging your clients and your projected income over time. There is a wealth of information on the Internet about how to put a simple business plan together and it will prove invaluable tool in keeping you focussed. Don't forget also that your business plan should remain fluid as your business expands and you begin to achieve the goals it contains so don't forget to keep updating it.

7. Join professional organisations. Join organisations that are committed to the promotion of the role of 虚拟 assistants and that are professional and well run. You can gain credibility from your association with them and they can be an infinite source of information, support and encouragement. The UK Association of Virtual Assistants fulfils such a 需要 and you can also advertise your business in the directory section. The UK Association of Virtual Assistants can be found at www.ukava.co.uk For information on how to sign up to the directory and become a member see: http://www.ukava.co.uk/html/join_the_uk_association_of_vir.html

考虑加入小企业联合会。它们不仅保护独资经营者和小型企业的权利,而且还是与潜在客户会面的绝佳机会。另外,出于类似原因,也可以考虑加入您当地的商会。

8. Don't forget to market your business. It sounds obvious but once you're set up, don't forget to market your business. Bare in mind that client jobs will often be one-offs (managing a house move, typing up a dissertation) or a short-term solution (maternity leave, holiday cover, etc.) so while you are working on your clients projects, you must also be marketing your business in order to find new clients. Don't forget your web site, market this on the Internet thorough search engines and submitting it to directories such as the www.ukava.co.uk, don't forget to tell everyone you meet what you do - you'll be surprised how much work comes form someone-who-knows-someone who 需要s some help, ALWAYS carry your business cards and hand them out every time you meet someone new, consider local press advertising or advertising in specialist press. Whatever you find works for you, just keep doing it.
