Meeting Minutes / Transcription Services
One of the ways in which I vary from the typical VA is in my degree & background. I have a degree in English and my communications background makes me very versatile. I am a skilled note taker and quite efficient with transcription services. Have an audio or video recording of your last meeting, most recent book notes, or content ideas? Send it to me and I’ll return to you the text document with all of your information. This frees up not only your time but also your hands. Dictate your next post to your iPhone and easily email it to me for transcription, formatting, proofing, and return!
Refreshing Tired Content
Yes, I know this is number 11. It is an important one though…You have TONS of content on your blog that was once making you a lot more money than it is today. Why is that? Are the photos out of date? Is the content geared towards a specific season? Let me help you make that content useful again. Refreshing old content and updating it with new pictures and information can help get it ready for a republish. Keeping that original traffic, driving in even more, and building on a solid foundation are all much smarter for SEO & AD revenue.
I hope you will keep all of these things in mind as you consider what I can do for you. I’m happy to discuss any ideas you may have and I look forward to being able to help make you and your business more successful!
