Not one author has a website or blog!
When asked why not, I received a few different answers but the main thing I heard was they didn’t have time, didn’t know how or didn’t want to spend a lot of money. They are valid and understandable reasons.
I was going through my notes the other day and reminded myself that I knew I should put a proposal together and approach these five writers and offer to create a website for them promoting themselves and their books. If these five didn’t have websites, then there are probably many more authors who also could use the assistance of someone who can build websites and understands their industry.
Authors and their books is an easy niche to target.
First I needed to show them why they need a website and how important it would be for their career.
- Promotion of the author and their book(s)
- Increase sales of their books and services
- Sell books online
- Attract and build a loyal fanbase
- Promote new releases, book signings and speaking engagements
- Attract agents and publishers
And those are just a few of the reasons why they need a website – there are many more. Authors may need help marketing their websites, creating either a book or author`s blog, developing their marketing platform, assistance with social networking and maybe even creating a virtual book tour!
As a writer and an entrepreneur this niche market appeals to me and I thought maybe it might appeal to others also. That`s why I quickly put this email out to my readers because there is a way you can get the training necessary to offer this much needed service.
VAClassroom, as most of you know is one of my favourite training providers and they have partnered with bestselling author and expert D`vorah Lansky. They are now offering the NEW Online Book Marketing Specialist Program and I signed up for it.
Seriously, there is limited seating available – only 75 seats yesterday when I registered and 41 today when I checked again.
That`s why I decided to quickly get this information out to you today before all of the seats are gone. If you are still looking for a niche that will help you launch your business or add another service to your existing Virtual Assistant business then this is for you.
There are thousands of authors who need yours services and by taking this two week course you will have access to them.

All the best,
Upgrade yours skills through VAClassroom
In spite of the fact that I believe everyone should continue to upgrade their skills and take advantage of some of the excellent training programs on the internet I have been so busy on different projects that I have not followed my own advice.
When I first started my business Lorac Virtual Solutions I signed up for as many courses and programs I thought were relevant and affordable. I was lucky to hear about Craig and Kelly Cannings’s VAClassroom and during my business startup I took a number of their courses and not once did I regret it.
However, it has just occurred to me that I haven’t checked with them in over a year and I haven’t upgraded my skills in that time either. That’s why I recently spent an hour reviewing their online training courses, workshops and mini-clinics.
Connecting through Social Media – the right way!
Social Marketing Specialist Program and the Certification Program
I signed up for these courses to help me market my business using social networks and not only did the knowledge I gained help my business I am now able to offer this service to my clients. This was an added bonus. By taking this course I had a better understanding of what social media is and how it affects everyone’s business and I learned how to create a strategy to effectively use the social networks. Not only that, it also taught me how to monitor the results and understand the implications of connecting via social media.
Blog Marketing Tips, Tools and Tactics
The course resource guide and bonus material included a 50 page WordPress Set-up and Start-up Guide, something I devoured. The 8 video lessons are easy to follow, straight forward and relevant. Craig also encourages his students to get involved in their own Social Network sharing ideas and questions about the courses.
Mini Courses for busy people
The mini courses are perfect for people like me who are extremely busy, need the skills but don’t have a lot of time. We have all heard about Facebook but we don’t necessarily understand how we can use Facebook to enhance our business – the new Facebook Pages Course looks very interesting as well as the online Video marketing Specialist Training Programs.
An Added Service to your Business
Although VA Classroom targets Virtual Assistants and provides training that will assist them in providing this service, I feel that this training is good for anyone in business whether they use the skills for their own business or as an added service. I have recommended some of their mini-courses to clients of mine who were struggling with different aspects of running and growing their businesses to their complete satisfaction.
The programs can be taken live at the time they are offered or they can be taken online on your own schedule which is perfect if you are like me and want to study at my own pace. They offer Event Planning, WordPress training, internet marketing, Traffic Geyser, Online Video Marketing Specialist Training, HTML Training, Camtasia for VAs and the list goes on.
By accessing their training programs you will gain a membership that includes many FREE features including attendance at interactive events with guest speakers providing a lot of excellent advice and assistance. The course material is always available to refer back to at any time and I just verified that by checking the courses I took two years ago and they are still available to me.
There is also a very active forum where others will help answer questions you may have or you may even be able to help them with their problems. The monthly newsletter helps you stay on top of topics and trends. And that’s all for FREE.
Help your Clients Find You on the Internet
There is much more than what I have listed in this review so I recommend anyone who is in business and wants to create an online presence or help their clients do so, sign up for training through VAClassroom. It’s important to keep your skills fresh and up to date – something I plan on doing right away. Visit VAClassroom.
