Will you be able to help them?
Don’t kid yourself. You need to know this stuff.
As a virtual assistant, these skills are an invaluable asset to your clients. Getting certified as an Internet Marketing Virtual Assistant is a great way to put your business on the fast-track.
VAClassroom features an innovative online training center designed to equip Virtual Assistants with the right niche skills businesses are currently seeking in 2008 and beyond. VAClassroom’s certification programs have been designed in collaboration with Professional Virtual Assistants and the entrepreneurs and businesses that regularly hire them.
As I was progressing through the material and video tutorials, it was evident to me right away that the folks at VAClassroom are not charging nearly enough for this certification program. Seriously! This is such a well-rounded program. You get more than your money’s worth, trust me. Even though I knew much of the material, it helped me to fill in the gaps in areas I knew I really should know. If you do this, you won’t regret it! You might want to do this sooner rather than later…before they hike up those prices.
VAClassroom presently offers a comprehensive ten-module, video-based program called the “Internet Marketing VA Training Certification”. With over 50 videos, a 70-page resource guide, practical quizzes and assignments, a class discussion forum, live coaching and job search resources, the skills developed through the IMVA training and certification program will help you win more ideal clients, increase your income opportunities and expand your services into a profitable and in-demand niche! In addition, this course will provide you with the Internet Marketing know-how to more effectively promote your own Virtual Assistance practice.
