WHAT YOUR SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT CAN DO FOR YOU THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
It’s never too early to start preparing your business for the silly season.
Or is it?
As the days start to get shorter and 'sweater weather' becomes more real, everyone seems to simultaneously think 'wow, it's that late the year already?! This time also happens to be the best time to start planning your Christmas marketing campaign (if you haven't already)
There is a level of fatigue that everyone experiences especially with everyone wanting the big and grand with overly complicated and oftentimes convoluted marketing plans, but forget to add the element of “fun”
Considering how many Black Friday ads and emails that we have just lived through (not saying you shouldn’t take the time to do something this year) why not give yourselves some break and let your SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT handle the marketing side of your business this holiday season and every other holiday of the year?
Your SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT can help you with your:
1. EMAIL MARKETING
Email marketing is a crucial element to any ecommerce brand, as well as brick and mortar retail stores.
But for the Christmas period, consider using email marketing as a way to drive your email list to already existing promotional campaigns. For example, send an email to your list that showcases your new interactive website or upgraded social media pages. Send an email about reprices property listings and drive all traffic to your Facebook Business page or Instagram profile as that's where you've shared the details of your Christmas offer and the like.
Remember that any imagery used in your holiday email marketing should also be updated to show you're right into the Christmas spirit!
2. SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT
From editing graphics, updating the imagery of your website and all your social media pages to creating videos and all the latest hashtags for the holiday season, responding to inquiries over the holidays and greeting your friends and clients a “Merry Christmas.” These are just a few of the many tasks social media tasks you can assign to a creative and highly skilled virtual assistant.
Social media marketing and management is a job that requires constant attention. It’s tough to do when you’re busy with the other areas of your business but with your SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT you don’t have to worry about it and focus on other areas of the business that needs your attention more.
Having a blog and writing about important topics that are relevant to your audience establishes yourself as an authority in the space. It enhances your professional image. A blog is to professionals in the 2000s what a business card was in the 1990s. Blogs are the new business cards.
Blogging enables you to reach the billions of people that use the Internet. Blogging can help you promote yourself or your business. Blogging works as a method for attracting an audience because it provides something of value to them before asking for anything in return. So, what more when you blog before, during and after the holiday season right?
But if you’re running out of time, energy and brain cells to write blogs for your website, your SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT can do that for you, so no worries!
4. EMAIL MANAGEMENT
It’s always a good idea to take some time off over the holidays to spend time with family and friends, reflect on the year, and mentally recharge for upcoming challenges.
But for many of us, it’s hard to leave work behind. Let your SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT sort out tons of incoming emails for you over the holidays. Respond to tickets and enquiries on your behalf. Your virtual assistant can be a good crutch to really let that Out of Office Reply fly – arrange for them to cover for you while you’re gone.
5. TRAVEL PLANNER
If you’re traveling over the holidays, why not let your SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT handle the flight and hotel reservations? And if you’re staying with relatives, maybe they can book you a relaxing getaway for when you get home!
Your Virtual Assistant can help you find the perfect place to go, find the cheapest deals for airlines, hotels, attractions or anything according to your preference. You just have to give all the details of your travel and you will be in good hands.
There’s a lot more a SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT can do for you and your business. Hiring a virtual assistant this Yuletide season will not break your wallet because you will only have to pay for the hours rendered. By shelling out few dollars, you are giving yourself the luxury of extra time for yourself to spend with family and friends.
Hire your very own SUMMIT VIRTUAL ASSISTANT and let us help you improve on the way you work with our Real Estate trained, College educated, Background Checked and DISC tested professionals ready and eager to help you out this holiday season and continue to aid you in flourishing and growing in the real estate industry this coming 2020!
