Free Up Your Time And Have A Virtual Assistant Manage Your Blog

It’s no secret that a blog does wonders for your business.

It drives organic traffic to your website, generates new leads, connects you to your customers, and many more. This is why business owners take advantage of this powerful tool and utilize it to improve their marketing strategy. 

But behind all of these blog contents, there’s a lot of work that needs to be done. 

You can’t just write a 500-word article, publish it, and call it a day. No, you have to take any other steps to ensure that your blog posts are being discovered and getting seen by the right people.

And between managing your business and creating content, you could only wish that if only splitting yourself into half is an option, everything would be better.

But you don’t have to do that. What if we tell you that you can focus on running your business while still putting out fresh and well-made content?

Lo and behold, meet your life-saver: Virtual assistants.

A virtual assistant (VA) can help you manage your blog while you take care of your business’s more important matters. 

We’re here to tell you how.

Come Up With Ideas

We know you’re the expert when it comes to your business, and it’s a given that your blogs’ topics should at least come from you. Maybe you do have all the ideas, and if that’s the case, you just have to relay them to your virtual assistant to make them come to life.

But you can’t just make content for yourself. You have to think about your audience.

Thus, enter your virtual assistant to the scene. Give your ideas and ask them to research the appropriate keywords that revolve around it. They can also research your competitors’ most popular posts.

Through these efforts, the one who will create the content will have more information to help them write better.

The Content Creation Itself

We all experienced writing at some point in our lives. Maybe it’s for homework, a test, or simply interested in the craft and decided to try it. The point is, we all know how to write. 

But to write well, now that’s a different story.

If you’re someone who’s been blessed with good writing skills, then that’s another checked bullet on your VA’s to-do list. But if you’re not that confident in your writing, it’s not the world’s end for you.

A professional virtual assistant is trained to create articulate, engaging, and effective articles. They write, edit, and proofread the content to ensure that people will read them from start to finish.

Of course, it’s still important that you check their work before hitting that publish button. Your blog should reflect the voice and tone your brand is going for, and a virtual assistant is more than willing to follow that.

Explain to them what you want, and they will make sure to turn your vision into reality.

They can also be in charge of optimizing your blog to have a high rank on the search results page. Inserting the proper keywords, putting relevant images and videos with the correct names, these are all excellent ways of strengthening your SEO.

With your virtual assistant’s help, you’re consistent in making efforts to be more visible to other people.

Technical Side Of Your Blog

Managing a blog means controlling everything that goes into it to make it work as good as possible – including the technical side. 

Now, we know that you have a lot going on your plate already. And to add more tasks in your schedule can easily lead to burnout. This is why delegating the daily maintenance of your blog to a virtual assistant is your best remedy. 

What do they have to do, you ask?

A lot. Let us walk you through these tasks:

  • Backup Your Blog – Imagine this: you’re rushing an essay you need to pass at 11:59, and it’s already 11:55. You just have to edit some words, and you’re good to go. But when you’re about to save the file, the computer suddenly shuts down. What?! That’s right. You’re left staring at a black screen as the clock reaches midnight. If only you could save and backup the file, you won’t have to worry. It’s the same thing when it comes to your blog. Hard work and precious time were put in those posts, and you shouldn’t let them waste. Let your VA take care of backing up your blogs regularly, and you won’t have a problem.
  • Update Your Blog – To prevent your website’s security issues, you have to make sure that it’s up-to-date. But with too much workload, finding the time to update your blog can be difficult. A virtual assistant can be in charge of this task and regularly check for status updates. In this way, you’re assured that no security problems will happen to your blog.
  • Make Sure To Install New Plug-ins – Have you ever experienced waiting for a page to load? You get up from your seat to do something else, but it’s still the same loading icon that you see on your screen when you come back. A slow website will not give a good impression. Have your virtual assistant avoid this by keeping up with the new plug-ins and installing all of them. This task is time-consuming, but with your VA’s help, then going through your website will be a breeze. 

Marketing

Ah, probably one of the most important steps you have to do. Before you have an audience, you must let them find your first. And how is that? Through marketing.

No matter how good your content is if you don’t have people reading it, then what’s the point? This is why it’s important to be consistent in promoting your content online.

A virtual assistant can take it to your social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, you name it. Through this, you’re putting out your blog to a wide audience. 

Although this may require your business to spend some money, your VA can also boost your posts to reach specifically your target audience. Another marketing effort is to have your VA comment on other blogs and include links to your blog.

Many bloggers claim that you’re taking one step closer to more people finding you by commenting on other blog posts. Guest blogging and content aggregators are also great ways to gain more exposure and attract people that have an interest in your business.

There are many other ways to promote your content, and as long as you have a dedicated assistant to make sure that these tasks are consistently accomplished, then your blog is in good hands.

Organization

Who wants to have a messy workflow and an unplanned to-do list?

That’s right; no one does. Your Virtual Assistant can be a great help before, during, and after putting your content together. 

  • First, they can make a schedule for your content. After gathering the topic ideas and finishing the blog posts, they will publish them according to the schedule. In this way, you can post content consistently, and your audience will surely be delighted by it. This will also allow your VA to be always on track when it comes to generating new ideas and allotting ample time to create high-quality content.
  • Second, a virtual assistant can keep an inventory where already used topics can be listed down. Writing down new ideas is also a great practice. These are to avoid repeating content in your blog and make sure that you’re constantly publishing fresh articles.
  • Third, managing your comment section is also an important task to delegate to your virtual assistant. They must have a keen eye on spam comments that your blog receives. Responding to your audience on time is also a great way to engage with your followers and keep them as loyal supporters. 

Final Thoughts: Time Is Money, Spend It Wisely

A blog is a fantastic tool to include in your business’ marketing strategy. But answering emails, joining the meetings, thinking of ways to grow your business, these tasks already take too much of your schedule. So how will you find the time (and energy) to manage your blog?

This is why hiring a virtual assistant is essential. With your VA’s help, you can use your time to be more productive and accomplish tasks that will generate more income for your business.

We’re not saying that blogging is not important, but it’s all about focusing on what’s more beneficial to your growth. And you’re not even “dumping” these tasks to anyone.

Virtual assistants are professionals, and they have the proper skill set to perform all of these tasks. They are reliable when it comes to helping your business achieve its long-term success.

Other people say that time is money. Especially in running a business, the time you wasted is money wasted. By having a highly-skilled virtual assistant, you have more time to spend on things that will push your business to achieve a momentum of growth. 

So whether you need someone to help you or completely manage your blog, a virtual assistant is what you need. They will help you in blogging – brainstorming ideas, writing articles, optimizing your content, promoting your blog, and organizing your blogging workflow.
