Making the Most of Your VAF Membership: Stay active

Posted 08-23-2010 at 08:12 PM by VAF Admin  
Forums and online communities are the original social networks - participating in the conversation and making the most of all that your free membership at Virtual Assistant Forums has to offer is an important part of your internet marketing plan - IF you take advantage of the opportunity. Here’s how!

Stay active:
You’re an important member of the Virtual Assistant Forums community! From the research and startup phase you've seen the benefit of participation in this top-notch forum, but how important is it to remain active on the boards after you're established? There are many reasons ongoing participation at VAF is important, here are just a few:

- Visibility among your peers - "Being an active member of VAF has directly resulted in referrals to potential clients from fellow members. I have also made referrals and subcontracted work to fellow VAF members. Each time, my decision to make a referral or subcontract to a specific VA has been based on my interaction with them on the forums." says VAF member, Kim LeRiche

- Keeping up with the industry - the VA industry is experiencing growth, new trends, and change on a regular basis. What better place to get the latest news and participate in intelligent, lively conversation on those topics than VAF?

- Keeping up with your niche - your posts on the boards should reflect a current tap on the pulse of your specialty. But if your last post is outdated, you and your company appear outdated. Keep it current!

- Ongoing support and quality, current information - Serena Carcasole was an active VAF member before she even had a name for her business and now runs a successful multi-VA practice, VBS On Demand, states, "When I began establishing my business, I was unsure of where to start and what direction to take. VAF acted as my encyclopedia and bible. Now, as a well-established VA, the forums are still indispensible to me. There has never been a time when my questions have gone unanswered."

Viewing RFPs

Since it takes so many posts to have access to the RFP's, could closed ones be made available to us new members who haven't gotten there yet?

I would just like to see what a finished one looks like, what kind of information the clients furnish, etc. Just curious.
