Need Help Virtually all the Time?

Virtual Assistants are a profession that supply businesses with help in areas where the owner can’t or doesn’t want to do certain tasks.  This allows the owner to do the work that they are good at and hire a Virtual Assistant for as many hours as they need or can afford.

Janet Barclay of Organized Assistant  www.organizedassistant.com is a fantastic Virtual Assistant.  She specializes in website design and social media.  She designed my first website 7 years ago and redesign my new responsive wordpress website last year.  She takes care of hosting the site and letting me know what directories I might want my site on in addition to the directories she  has already used.  She is a wealth of information and  will answer my questions quickly and clearly.

Twitter – To Thank or not To Thank

How do you respond when someone retweets you?  Replying with a thank-you is indeed polite but isn’t very interesting to read.  Most people on twitter like to scan interesting comments.  So I asked a  Virtual Assistant, Janet Barclay of Organized Assistant how to respond.  She sent me a very helpful article.  By the way the short answer is to say thank-you. Here is a link to the blog post http://organizedassistant.com/2011/04/05/what-do-you-do-when-someone-retweets-you/
