Planning events for personal or business purposes can be a daunting task. You have special holidays to celebrate each year with your family and friends. Then you have business events such as live seminars, retreats, teleseminars or webinars. Any event, whether live or virtual, personal or business, takes planning. Your Virtual Assistant can help.
If you are planning a personal event such as dinner for Valentine’s Day or someone’s birthday party, your Virtual Assistant can research restaurants and other facilities in your area including their menu, reservation policy and party/banquet room availability, etc. Your VA can send a report of everything she learns about the locations. Then you can decide which place fits your needs and budget the best.
Once you determine that, your Virtual Assistant can make the reservations, place any deposits that may be required, and provide you with the confirmation information and directions to the location. This can also be done for live business seminars and retreats whether they are local to you or in another state altogether. Your Virtual Assistant can send invitations for the personal event or help you market the business seminar via email, Twitter, Facebook and regular mail.
If you are planning a virtual event, your Virtual Assistant can set up the phone line or webinar software for the day and time of the event. Your VA can make sure everything is recorded and transcribed as well. If you will be interviewing guests, your Virtual Assistant can get all the background information for each guest, book them for the event, and make sure they have the information they need to participate on their scheduled day. Then all the information for the event can be put into a sales page for your website. Your Virtual Assistant can then help you get the word out via email, Twitter, Facebook, and regular mail.
Don’t let event planning overwhelm you this year. Whether you need to plan personal events for your friends and family or business events for your clients, your Virtual Assistant is there to help take care of all the details that go into an event. Talk to your VA today. The sooner you get the ball rolling, the sooner you’ll have everything in place for all your events this year. Feel the relief, “Ahhhh….”© Copyright 2011 Sophie Zollmann
