Hi

I have a VA who can not much but simple and easy things. But i can not fire her out as she has financual issues and want work. I was thinkibg if i can assign 8 hour task per day to her and get some easy work from her. I hired her for seo and online promotion.


Currently she is doing

- i post daily on my fb page and adk her to share in groups. It hardly take half hour to share 1 post. How many post per day she can share.... I do not want fb account ban for many shares a day. Please suggest

- google+ posting pinterest twitter posting. It hardly take 15 minutes per day

- i taught her blog commenting. Now she can search google blogs for commenting and i have to draft 1 basi. comment with anchor text n url for her. Which she she use with her own comnent in posting. But most of the comments are either moderated or nofollow. So if she do 10-15 comments in an hour, hardly 1-2 is dofollow published. Is it worth giving full day blog commenting task?

What else can be assign to her which is easy and good for my store daily seo or promotion. Bythe way mine is bedding store online.

Please advice.

Thanks

    Blog commenting is one of the effective method if done right. is she posting comment on the high traffic blog? is the format and way of comment correct? I suggest hand her a guide on doing the blog commenting.

    In my opinion, instead of focusing on a few different tasks which bring less or no result, it is good to focus only on 1-2 effective tasks. Do it consistently for 1 month and should see result. That is why following good blog commenting practice is important before start commenting.

    I found this article which is quite good on GetResponse. https://blog.getresponse.com/definit...ommenting.html.

    Well, for a start, I am sorry about your VA.This being said she shouldn't be doing the SEO portion unless she is a learn faster and know what she is doing.

    This can easily back fire, for example blog commenting, if she didn't do right, both her email and ur website will be classified by the comment tool as spam, this will harm you going forward.

    Can she do administrative tasks instead ?

      Yes, it would be best for your VA especially for YOU to have her do administrative tasks.

      Also, ask her what she's best or skilled in. Maybe her expertise can help you.

      Good luck

  • Linens,

    Don't know if this'd be quick and easy for your VA, or if this is what you're looking for, but you can test it out if you want ...

    STEP 1. Create a list for each of the following:

    a) Heavily trafficked sites that are operated by your top competitors. These include --

    ** The most popular companies in your niche, especially those with competing offers;

    ** Top ranking sites in Google, Youtube and / or Bing's organic search results pages for your target exact match keywords; and

    ** Sites with paid search & display and social ads (for competing offers) in Google, Bing, Youtube, Facebook and other relevant social networks ...

    b) Heavily trafficked sites that have laterally relevant, non-competing content and offers. These include --

    ** The most popular sites in laterally relevant niches, especially those with non-competing offers that are relevant to your target audience;

    ** Top ranking sites in Google, Youtube and Bing's organic search results pages for laterally relevant, non-competing keywords; and

    ** Sites with paid search & display and social ads (for laterally relevant, non-competing offers) in Google, Bing, Youtube, Facebook and other relevant social networks ...

    STEP 2. Enter those sites in SimilarWeb.Com and SpyFu.Com. These online tools can help her do the following:

    a) Identify the most effective traffic generation methods of those sites. These include direct traffic, referral traffic, organic and paid search traffic and social traffic;

    b) Determine the onsite methods deployed by sites with significant direct traffic, i.e. Email subscription offers, membership communities and so on;

    c) List down the referral traffic sources of sites with significant referral traffic;

    d) List down the social traffic sources of sites with significant social traffic;

    e) Identify the search & display and social ad networks used by sites with significant paid traffic;

    f) List down the organic keywords used by sites with significant organic search traffic; and

    g) List down paid keywords of sites with significant paid search & display and social traffic, especially those with long running ad campaigns ...

    STEP 3. Verify which of those traffic sources will allow her to:

    a) Post and share content, i.e. Web forums, blogs, Facebook groups, Facebook pages, LinkedIn groups, etc.;

    b) Contribute guest posts, i.e. Blogs, authority sites, etc.;

    c) Post display ads, marketplace ads and email ads, i.e. Blogs, Web forums, social pages, online social communities, etc.; and

    d) Implement ad campaigns, i.e. Search & display ad networks, social networks, private blog networks, native ads in relevant apps, etc. ...

    STEP 4. Create and implement a plan to maximize the use of those traffic sources for traffic generation, brand exposure and SEO results ...

    Hope this helps!

    IMHO....

    Make sure you get to see an ROI on your investment. Instead of comments I would suggest...

    1. Appointment Setting. For your local customers. (If you have that set up)
    2. Sales Calls. To potential clients, with a prepared transcript that you wrote. Current clients for satisfaction surveys.
    3. Customer Service. Screening basic questions from your customers. (use a seperate skype number you own so you can use for future campaigns
    4. Research. Gathering business contact info. Gathering articles, resources or info that you can use for your own website or products.
    5. Reviews. If possible ask her to do honest reviews for products. If product is easy to understand and helpful for someone that may not be familiar. She may be the perfect average consumer.

    Hope that gives you a few ideas. Good Luck!

    As Aizaku said, you are better off letting this person go until you are ready to hire an entry level VA. From past experience, you need to be CRYSTAL CLEAR what their task is and provide exact written instructions on how to do that task. If you leave ANY room for interpretation they will do it wrong 9 times out of 10. Jinmin mentioned starting with 1 or 2 tasks. I suggest starting with 1. Pick an easy one like social bookmarking new posts. Write out a list of instructions for the VA to follow, show it to them and make sure they understand it with no questions. Try it out for a week or two to see how it goes. If everything goes well, try adding a second task again with concrete instructions.

    This is all about laying some ground work. Sure it's going to take some time to write out instructions for all your SEO tasks, but you're only going to have to do it once. In the event your VA doesn't work out, you can hire another and be confident that anyone that knows anything about internet marketing can follow your instructions.

    So you have a VA just because you can?

    Usually when someone is hired, they're hired for a specific reason.

    Another easy promotion tasks for your VA is to post pictures of your online bedding store in Instagram, or search for guest post opportunities for backlinks.

    This is the right answer.

    Fire her. It might sound mean, but her financial problems are not your burden. Fire her.

    If you do not have work for her to do, do not run around trying to scrape up little meaningless tasks to give to her just so you can give her something to do. Just let her go.
