    EP11: My 10-Step Action Plan to Attracting Clients Online

    I am deeply thankful to everyone who supported my webinar + fundraiser event on "How To Be a Rockstar Virtual Assistant in 2021" last week.

    We were able to raise PHP 50,000 for Children of Asia-Philippines and Mayari Animal Rescue Organization (MARO).

    In this episode, I've thought of sharing one of the highlights of the webinar -- My 10-Step Action Plan to Attract Clients Online. This is what I have used over the years and I hope this would help you too!

    EP09: How To Win a U.S. Client with Jason Rigby

    How much do you know about U.S. clients really? Do you know about their pet peeves in the virtual workplace? Do you know that they would adore you if you ask them sensible questions and clarifications about the tasks (which might feel either awkward, unconventional, or worse, disrespectful for us from the East side of the world)?

    In fact, why do a lot of (Filipino) VAs still struggle to win a U.S. client?

    Well, tune into my latest episode with Jason Rigby, the CMO of the global tech company, Tartle.co and a high-ticket digital marketing agency owner based in the U.S. and take note of his fresh and career-changing insights from his 2021 experience of hiring VAs and Freelancers from the Philippines.

    PLUS, he shared the EASIEST insider tips and techniques on how you can engage and strengthen your relationship with your clients, U.S. or otherwise.
