The Dreaded Services Page

Get New Clients For Your Virtual Assistant Business

Video Transcript:     The Dreaded Services Page

Hi, how you going? Just here in Vietnam recording this. And I just pulled over because I’ve had something on my mind, hope you can hear this.

We’ve just riding around here in Vietnam.   But what that subject line said is, “your services page sucks.” And really I haven’t looked at your personal page so I didn’t mean to offend you, but I hate services pages.

And the reason I hate services pages is because they don’t accomplish anything. You see when you’re selling virtual assistant services you do need to have abilities and people need to know what those abilities are. However, people are buying into you. They’re buying into a relationship. And so what you want to talk about is features and benefits to people. Not the services. The services is how you deliver them. And so I’m dead against services pages. I’d rather you have a, why you need me, page.

You see, when we’re dealing with people in a virtual assistant environment they have to trust us. And that’s the biggest part of the relationship. And we touched a little bit on that in Step 2 that we covered in this series of emails. But what I want you to think about is looking at your services page, can you translate any of those into benefits.

For example, “I can save you time doing this, that and the other” “I can help you grow your social media following” “I can help you build your list.” You see, those sorts of offerings mean a lot more than, web design, social media. And that’s what I want you to think about. What your services page is really saying to people. Is it engaging them, wanting them to call you?

So I’ll leave you with that thought today. Hope you can hear everything over this traffic. Speak to you later.

Wait, I’m not finished yet. Just before you go I want to make sure that you’ve seen our proven system on how to get new clients for your online business. If you’re really serious about getting new clients and building a successful business, make sure you click on the link below.

What does the Client Really Want

Get New Clients For Your Virtual Assistant Business

 

Video Transcript:  What Does the Client Really Want?

Hi, how you going? Welcome to this video about what your clients really want. And we’re shooting this in Vietnam. And I’m in my office attire. Working from home this is the sort of attire you can wear, if you really feel like a dag, which is what I am.

We’re just talking about what your clients really want. I want you to just have a look over here. See this drinking store over here. You see heaps of these in Vietnam, in various shapes and forms. And you see, what does a client really want who buys from them? Well they just need a drink. It’s hot here. And there’s heaps of these drink sellers, and they don’t need to really be creative about what they’re selling. They just sit there and wait for people to come.

Now, for you, selling your virtual assistant services, you need to be a little bit more creative than that. You need to understand what your clients really want. It’s not like them buying a drink. This is an emotional purchase. But to understand what they want you need to listen to your clients. And maybe if I can give you an exercise to do. Think about when you go down to the shops and buy something, I’m going to use the example of chicken, okay. Now you might think, “yes, well I just want some chicken.” But you don’t want some chicken. For example, a mother who goes to buy some chicken for her family, what does she really want? It would be interesting, you get different opinions, but possibly she wants a healthy type of chicken. Maybe a single guy at uni, couldn’t care less, he just wants the cheapest type of chicken. And so that’s why, just in the aspect of chicken, there’s a bunch of different types in the shop. When I go down I like to buy the ones with the natural pictures on them, because I feel like I’m buying something that’s organic and healthy.

Now how do you find out what your clients want? You have to listen to them. And you do that by forgetting about selling them your services, but having a discussion with them. For example I was talking to a lady the other day. And I asked her “have you got someone who looks after your web work” and she said “yes, but I’m not happy with them.” And I asked her why and it wasn’t the quality of her work, her skills were fine. But she said, “she wasn’t there when I needed her for a big promotion. She didn’t get the things done that I needed her to do.” So what’s that client’s need?

I can show her all the website designs that I’ve done. But what I need to do to sell her services is show her that she can trust me. And I’ll be there when she needs me.

So I hope this has given you a little idea. Have a think about your buying process, when you buy anything. And just have a look at what the advertisers have put there and what your emotional decision is. And that will help you understand what your clients want, or try to find out what your clients want.

Wait, I’m not finished yet. Just before you go I want to make sure that you’ve seen our proven system on how to get new clients for your online business. If you’re really serious about getting new clients and building a successful business, make sure you click on the link below.

Virtual Assistants – Who is NOT your Ideal Client?

The New Clients Treasure Map

for Your Virtual Assistant Biz

Clue #1

“He who tries to please everybody

pleases nobody.”

When asked who their ideal client is most VA’s say “oh, my services can really help anyone.” Or “I can help everyone. Everyone can benefit from having me work with them.”

WRONG!!!

 

This fable explains WHY beautifully

 

There was a miller and his son who were driving their donkey to the market. They’d not gone far when some girls saw them and broke out laughing. “Look!” they cried, “look at those fools. How silly they are to be trudging along on foot when the donkey might be carrying one of them on his back.”

This seemed to make sense, so the father lifted his son onto the donkey and walked along contentedly by his side. They trod on for a while until they met an old man who spoke to the son scornfully. “You should be ashamed of yourself, you lazy rascal. What do you mean by riding when your poor old father has to walk. It shows that no-one respects age anymore. The least you could do is get down and let your father rest his old bones.” Red faced with shame the son got down and made his father get onto the donkey’s back.

They’d gone only a little further when they met a group of fellows who mocked them. “What a cruel old man” jeered one of the fellows. “There he sits, selfish and comfortable, while the poor old man has to stumble along the dusty road to keep up with him.” So the father lifted his son up and the two of them rode along. However, before they reached the market a townsman stops them. “Have you no feeling for dumb creatures” he shouted. The way you load that little animal is a crime. You two men are better able to carry the poor little beast than he you.”

Wanting to do the right thing the miller and his son got off his donkey, tied his legs together, slung him on a pole and carried him on their shoulders. When people saw this spectacle they laughed so loudly that the donkey was frightened. The animal kicked through the cords that bound him, fell off the pole into the river, and drowned.

The moral of this story is, he who tries to please everybody, pleases nobody.

And it’s the same in your virtual assistant business. Your ideal client isn’t everybody and anybody.

Do you like this story? Well this is just one small part of a whole system that you need to put in place to get new clients. For example you’ve just learnt who isn’t your ideal client. Well how do you identify your ideal client? How do you figure out what they want? And how do you design services that they’ll be banging your door down, asking for.
