If you’ve ever started an online marketing campaign, then you know how time-consuming it can be. There seem to be a thousand little details that need to be done and within a small amount of time. But what if I told you that you don’t have to do all of these tasks on your own? What if you could hire someone to take care of them for you?
Well, you can. Online personal assistants are self-employed professionals who work on administrative tasks remotely. And they can be an invaluable part of your marketing team. Let’s take a moment to discuss a few tasks that an online personal assistant can help you with.
1. Email Marketing
Most influencers will attest to the importance of growing your newsletter subscriber list. However, what many often fail to tell you is how much time growing this list can take. That’s why it’s a good idea to enlist the help of someone else to take on this task.
When you hire an assistant, you can spend most of your time crafting the content for MailChimp, GetResponse, AWeber, or other programs. They can also work to ensure that your newsletter while your assistant inputs the text into a template through your list is always up-to-date and that your emails are always scheduled for the best times.
2. Content Marketing
Most online business owners assume that in order to succeed at content marketing, they must write the content themselves. While your content does need to reflect your brand, you can easily outsource this task to your personal assistant. Not only can they write the blogs for you, but they can also market and respond to all of the comments. Just make sure that your assistant has expertise in your niche.
Another time-consuming element of online marketing is SEO. However, just as is the case with email marketing, search engine optimization is a necessity if you want to succeed online. The good news is, you can always find an assistant who has experience with search engine optimization and then delegate this task to them. You can assign them the tasks of keywords research, verification of keyword density, metadata creation, and much more.
4. Social Media Marketing
Social media marketing is relatively simple, but it can take a huge chunk of your day. This is especially the case if you have signed up for multiple platforms. Luckily, an online assistant can take some of the weight off of your shoulders. They can create and update Facebook posts. They can schedule your posts for Twitter. They can create promotional images for Instagram and Pinterest. They can even respond to comments that people leave on your posts.
Sure, online marketing can be challenging. But that doesn’t mean that you have to do every little task yourself. In some cases, it’s a good idea to outsource your daily to-do list. A personal assistant can be a great way to get a lot done in a short amount of time.
