Key Points in the Conversation with Marketing the Invisible:
- Barbara’s ideal client: Ideal client for us is anyone running a small to medium business.
- Problem she helps solve: A lot of the problem people were facing is they wanted to get a virtual assistant but really that’s not the crux of the problem. A lot of the problem is training demands, onboarding a VA, managing a VA, and then making sure that your business is set up properly to get to the sense with offshore teams before you hire a VA.
- Typical symptoms that clients do before reaching out to Barbara: They may have tried outsourcing before. They may have tried and it has either failed or they tried and it was a roaring success but the person left and then they got failed after that because it’s actually very hard to find good people.
- Common mistakes people make when trying to solve that problem: On the recruitment side when people go to other websites, they do it themselves. They underestimate the amount of work involved in trolling through and the numbers of people that you have to go through to hit a home run.
