Virtual Assistant Services for Bloggers

Are you looking for a virtual assistant (VA) to assist you with your blog? Virtual Admin Pro loves working with bloggers! We typically work with bloggers in the food, DIY, and home décor niches but our services could easily transfer to others, like travel and adventure, family, fashion, education, and more.

Ready to hire a VA?

If this is your first time working with a VA, congratulations! We know this is a huge and likely scary step for you – but we promise, once you take the plunge, you will wonder why you waited so long! If you’ve been struggling with meeting deadlines or missing out on important family moments, this decision will change your life. Instead of wearing every hat in your business, the time to focus your energy on creating awesome content undistracted by administrative tasks is at your fingertips! You didn’t become a blogger to spend your valuable time managing your blog.  We can do that for you! Which means you get to be…an artist, a creator, a DIYer, a chef, or whatever your passion is that drove you to start your blog in the first place.

We offer a range of service levels, and you can start small by delegating  just a few tasks to us until you feel comfortable giving us more, or we’re also happy to dive right in and manage it all for you right away! Whatever you decide. 

 

Your Social Media Accounts

If you’re currently struggling with Pinterest, you are not alone. For many years, Pinterest was the “golden goose” of driving traffic to blog pages. In the good old days anyone could dump new pins all over Pinterest with very little strategy, and the traffic came in droves. Now, they’re really making us work for it. That’s ok, because we’re up to the challenge!

 

Our team currently manages several Pinterest accounts for bloggers. We pin new content, schedule it in Tailwind so that it’s strategically dripped out to other boards (we follow all “best practices” as outlined by Pinterest), and share it within Tailwind communities.

 

No Tailwind? No problem! We can also work with the system that you’re currently using.

 

We can also create new pins for fresh content and existing content on your website, research keywords, and write amazing descriptions that are sure to drive Pinterest traffic to your blog.

 

We can start with a full account audit and address cleaning up old boards, writing keyword rich board descriptions, and discuss how we can take your account to the next level. Spoiler alert: we are going to recommend Idea pins. I know, they don’t link to your blog – we GET it. But guess what? We can still drive traffic to your account and your blog with Idea pins, and since they are the way of the future we strongly recommend jumping on board this particular train. Contact us today and we’ll tell you how to do this effectively and show you proof (using analytics) that our strategy works.

Facebook seems to have a reputation as the ugly duckling of social media platforms in the blogging industry, but we couldn’t disagree more! There is still so much opportunity on Facebook to drive traffic to your blog. We can create a social media strategy for Facebook that includes a variety of posts designed to engage your audience, get them excited for your content, and turn them into your biggest super fans. We’ll use old-fashioned engagement as well as in-feed posts, reels, videos, and stories, and we will utilize whatever else Meta comes out with – because if we’ve learned one thing after being in this industry for several years, it’s that every platform rewards you with traffic when you embrace their changes! Today, reels are HUGE on Facebook, but tomorrow it could be something else. No matter what the next big thing is, we can find a way to make it work for your blog and your audience, and you won’t have to stress about staying on top of how the industry is changing.  You can just continue creating amazing content and leave the strategy to us!

Typically, most bloggers that we work with handle their own Instagram account engagement and stories.  We provide help with the less exciting but still very necessary behind the scenes tasks, like hashtag research, story ideas, and responding to the plethora of comments your content will generate! We can also help you create, edit, and schedule posts.

Get used to this word now, because you’re going to hear it a lot! We want to repurpose your content and make it work across every social media platform. When you create a YouTube video, we can turn it into a reel, a TikTok, a video pin, an Idea pin, a Facebook post, a Facebook reel, an Instagram reel, a YouTube short… you get the idea!

We’ll resize it, remove watermarks, use royalty-free music, add captions, and write post copy to make it relevant for each platform. Because guess what? Pinterest doesn’t love it when you pin a video with a Tiktok watermark, and Facebook gets angry when you post that Tiktok with music that isn’t “free” on their platform. So let’s repurpose content with intention, give each platform what they want, and sit back and celebrate the increase in your reach, engagement and blog traffic. And all without you lifting a finger!

Your youTube Channel

We use Adobe Premiere Pro and we’re happy to edit your video content and size it appropriately for YouTube, as well as create beautiful thumbnail graphics and channel art.

We can provide you with any level of support in this regard. Some bloggers like us to respond to every comment and others want responses to just the first few – it’s totally up to you, and usually depends on the number of comments received when new content is posted.

Your Website

SEO is always changing, and what worked really well eight years ago when you hit publish may not work as well for you today! We’re happy to revisit your old posts and revitalize them by:

  • Using new, relevant keywords.
  • Creating new pins.
  • Optimizing meta descriptions.
  • Utilizing alt tags, image titles, etc.
  • Using internal linking to relevant posts. Our goal is to increase your page views!
  • Seeking external linking opportunities by utilizing your content on social media platforms, or perhaps linking to an online publication that you’ve been featured in.

We can draft new content for your blog, and then you can polish it using your unique voice before hitting publish. We can do this for you in so many contexts!  For example, we can create “round-up” style posts, writing new copy to introduce several existing posts of the same theme. Or, maybe you’ve filmed a DIY on YouTube and haven’t had a chance to create a blog post for it yet. We can help with that! Remember: Repurpose, repurpose, repurpose. We can use your video for screen-capturing process photos, your dialogue to create the copy…so many possibilities!

If you produce a lot of content for your blog, or if you struggle with writing and grammar, we’re here to help! Our team can professionally edit and proofread your content and provide feedback so that you feel confident in the image you are projecting the next time you hit publish.

We love creating these! If you have an idea for a freebie or printable for your blog, we’d love to help. Contact us today and we can send you some examples of documents we’ve created for other clients.

Your Business

The bane of every blogger’s existence and yet…a necessary evil? We provide newsletter support for several clients. We can draft your weekly or monthly newsletter, complete with professionally edited content and beautiful images.  All you’ll need to do is schedule it!

Ready to Hire an Amazing Team of Virtual Assistants?

Contact us today and we’ll book a call to discuss what your biggest pain points are, and how we can relieve you of them! 

You ask, we answer

We want to make this process as simple and painless as possible for you! 

When you hire Virtual Admin Pro, you’re hiring a team of virtual assistants with a wide range of skills and education that complement each other. This means that for whatever service you require, we have someone who specializes in that kind of work. We also work together as a team, and tweak each other’s designs and edit and proofread content for one another to ensure that we’re delivering the highest level of service.

This depends largely on the size and scope of the work you delegate. Typically, we charge an average of $30-$35 CDN per hour. We bill in 15 minute increments for time spent. We charge for actual time worked at the end of an invoice period, so there is no need to pay any retainer or other up front charge.  You tell us what your budget is, and we will work within that boundary.

We believe in transparency, and can give you access to our time management software so you can easily keep track of the projects our team is working on for you, and see the time we spend on them.

We invoice clients on the 15th or 30th of each month, whichever is more convenient for you. All invoices are due within seven days of receipt unless otherwise arranged.

Contact us today and we’ll book a call to discuss what your biggest pain points are, and how we can relieve you of them! 

No, we don’t have monthly packages! We charge an hourly rate (which might sound scary but remember, you give us your budget, and we tell you what we can accomplish within it – you’re in control here!).  We meet with our clients quarterly to discuss where they’d like us to focus our time that quarter, because of course priorities can change depending on the time of year.

Yes! We have a service agreement that outlines our professional relationship, hours of work agreed upon, cost, as well as a confidentiality agreement to protect you and your intellectual property. You are free to look a copy of this agreement over and ask questions before you sign it!

 

Again, we don’t charge a monthly retainer, so there is no minimum time commitment or anything like that. You’re welcome to leave whenever you want – but we are confident in our ability to serve you and your business, and hope to continue our professional relationship for years to come!

No monthly commitments are required! Working with bloggers has taught us that for some niches, traffic is seasonal. During your slower months, you can pause working with us, and when you have busier than normal months, you can even send extra work our way! Just communicate your needs and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.
