Virtual Assistant with Strong Marketing Skills Needed for US-based Social PR Entrepreneur

Closed - This job posting has been filled.

Job Description

I'm looking for a "wo/man Friday" who can perform a variety of high-level administrative and marketing tasks as I build my independent "social PR" consulting business - everything I have been doing myself, but don't have the bandwidth to continue doing. Location is irrelevant as long as the right skills, work ethic and stellar work product are brought to the job.

Primary tasks will include: managing my daily schedule including client/new business meetings; managing some elements of my social media presence; researching and pitching me for PR opportunities; researching, pitching and securing speaking opportunities; managing and updating my meeting/speaking calendar, editing/collating blog posts for my blog community, and assisting in managing and updating my sales pipeline.

Once we have established a good routine and I'm comfortable with how you're working - and depending on your time/interest - there is potential to also assist/manage social media activity for clients, develop and manage my email newsletter, and take on more in-depth tasks, both for me and clients, in the areas of writing, and content development/management, presentation development, media monitoring and reporting, as well as a higher degree of administrative support such as invoicing, etc.

My clients typically span nonprofit associations, social entrepreneurs, and B2B/B2C companies in a range of industries, including tech, media services and publishing. Typically they are US-based, or have a high degree of familiarity with/needs in the US market, so familiarity with the US market/these sectors is desired.

I anticipate 10 hours a week for an estimated total of 40 hours a month to start with. Once we settle into a routine and see how much time the actual tasks take, we may adjust how we work, whether on an hourly or project basis. Any client-related work will be discussed separately, as and when it comes up.

Currently I am posting the position for three months. I anticipate that as we settle into a routine, this will be extended so that you will likely become my regular VA.

Contractor requirements

You need to be able to speak, read, and write perfect English (native speaker preferred, but not required) - no ifs, ands or buts. You should be familiar with the following software: Microsoft Office (especially MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint), the Google suite, WordPress, popular social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Slideshare, LinkedIn, Prezi and Google+ and Skype. You must be willing to work in/with programs that sync with Gmail, as well as Facebook; I have specific pieces of software/programs/apps that I work with, that I will train you on, such as PostPlanner, Streak, etc. Familiarity with Google Analytics is helpful.
