Wow, time seriously flies. Sorry about that folks. Didn’t realize that it was just about a month since the last episode (I blame February’s shortness for that). Anyway, Harry from MyEcoGuy asked a question about where to find long-term Virtual Assistants. Rather than just reply in the comments, I thought a podcast reply would be better, especially since there’s been some changes in the way that I hire VAs.
The two most common questions I get with regards to virtual assistants is where do I find quality VAs, and how do I interview them? Well, in the last few weeks I’ve teamed up with Chris Ducker from Virtual Staff Finder, a great service that answers both of those questions and does them for you.
The main problem that most folks run into when trying to find a VA is quality. I’ve seriously hired over 20+ virtual assistants, and out of all of them only 3 are ones that I’d work with again. That’s a whole lot of wasted time. stress, and money. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great experience but it was not cost-effective.
When you work with Chris’ team, they take all of your requirements, find, test, and interview candidates for you. They then give you 2-3 final candidates that you interview yourself. After you make your decision, you and your new VA negotiate payment, hours worked, etc. There is a fee up front, but no monthly overhead agency fee; It’s just between you and your VA.
I’m seriously excited about his program since he is able to not only find you cost-effective talent overseas, but it’s quality talent. I believe in it so much that I’m going to make his program even better.

Lead Generation Strategies
In this episode I also answer an audio question from Doug from Business Via Life about lead generation. Doug recently hired a designer intern and was trying to find ways to utilize her talents to not only design websites, but to also get new customers. By using a mix of tradition and non-traditional selling techniques, having his designer get out into the market could definitely drum up some local business.
