Looking for a skilled assistant with experience in business marketing and/or management for business owner with multiple businesses. I need more than just a virtual assistant.
Some tasks will be traditional: travel scheduling, meeting scheduling, event planning, web research, managing design projects. Some tasks will be more technical: web edits (via WordPress), social media management, minor Excel work, PowerPoint design (making graphics look fresh, finding stock photos, creating animations). You must be willing to do these more typical VA tasks.
However, this assistant will also be involved in business management tasks such as: business plan development, marketing strategy, content development, keyword research, project management and task management of other contractors. Experience with this type of work is *required*. Please do not apply if this is new for you. Explain to me in your cover letter why you think you can do this part of the job.
Basically, I have a full-time job plus three side businesses. I travel all over the world about 50% of the time. I'm almost never at my home office desk in Arizona. I need help keeping the side businesses moving forward as well as balancing the tasks of each. Since the skill set is slightly higher than a typical virtual assistant, we are willing to entertain slightly higher rates. However, some business education and experience is preferred. Some external client communication will be required. Please indicate if you fit this description.
Skills: Fluent English - writing, reading, and speaking. PowerPoint, Excel. Some HTML, WordPress, and experience with content management for web edits. Project management. Great communication skills - ability to be available at least half day US Pacific time (GMT -7) via GoogleTalk, Skype, SMS, or Whatsapp. Will be ongoing and maybe eventually full-time for the right candidate.
Experience with Aweber, WordPress, HTML, Twitter, Youtube - or similar products is essential. Please indicate this in your cover letter.
IMPORTANT: I will be assessing English and communication skills in a cover letter. Please spend some time letting me know how you can do this job and any questions you might have for me. Poorly written cover letters or ones that are generic and don't demonstrate you've read and understood what I'm looking for will be declined.
I'm easy to work with and there's so much opportunity here. But I need help to get it all done and I'm willing to pay for good talent. I'll pay more for the right skill than just hire the lowest bid. So please tell me why you fit the description.
