- You can find highly motivated clients because they are seeking you out.
- You will be seen as an expert because they found YOU.
- You can get traffic and clients for years to come based on efforts you do once (with some updates to keep it fresh).

- A completed website. Telling people to hire you simply won't be enough. You'll need to have a website up that sells people on your services and why they should hire you. You need to stand out from the crowd and relay that you know your stuff. Take the time and effort to put together a great website to present to potential clients. If you don't know how to build your own website, then take a course or hire someone to build it for you… it's that important.
- A client process. What if you find someone who wants to hire you? Do you know what to do next? Make sure you plan out a process of how you will accept and retain clients once they are interested in your services. It would be a very good idea to write this process out to hand over to your new clients so they know exactly what to expect as they start working with you (clients love that).

- A great business card – I know this is pretty obvious but have you checked your cards lately? Are they up to date? Do they best reflect your services? Would a total newbie to virtual assistance understand what you do?
- An opening dialogue – I personally don't like the ‘elevator speech' thing but I do think it's important to know what you're going to say when someone asks you what you do for a living. Preparing ahead of time is great but sometimes you just need to test this out until you hit the right thing. If you say your dialogue and your listener's eyes glaze over it's time to try something else. Keep track and pick the best.
