Creating Digital Products With The Help Of Your Virtual Assistant

3 copyAs someone who’s taken the bold step into self-employment, you’ve demonstrated that you’re not afraid to bring your dreams and ideas into reality!

Often, people with entrepreneurial minds have many ideas, but find they don’t have enough time available to capture, filter, develop, plan and implement the majority of them. Nonetheless, in some situations you may eventually refine your ideas enough to evolve a range of digital products that you intend to create and market in order to contribute to the lives of as many people as possible.

At first glance, creating digital products looks quite straightforward. You create it, upload it to your website and share it widely online. Done!… Or is it?

Once you progress deeper into this new sphere, there’s a surprising amount of tasks involved and elements to co-ordinate to ensure your digital product is a success. Besides creating the actual core content, there are many peripheral tasks, such as editing, proofreading, design, system set-up and copywriting. These tasks gradually emerge as you go… and it can be slow progress indeed; particularly as you’ve got your day-to-day customer / client work to prioritise. Naturally, the creation of digital products gets pushed down your to-do list, and with it, so do your future plans, your income strategy and the growth of your business.

So, how do you make real progress on the creation of your digital products?

Simple…

You need the help of an awesome VA!

None of the tasks mentioned need to be completed by you, and delegating these time-draining tasks can really boost your drive and enthusiasm too :-)

Able to take on a dizzying array of tasks, your VA can generate some real momentum in your projects. You need only create the main body of the content – the rest you can hand-over for production in multiple formats. Here’s just some tasks you could effortlessly delegate…

E-book Production

Delegate the proofreading, formatting, design and editing – you need only supply your branding, any images to use, for instance profile pictures, and the copy you’ve written. This could also apply to a worksheet, cheatsheet, ‘how to’ guide or any other document.

Copywriting

When writing copy for email sequences, website sales pages, or landing pages, there’s a particular style of writing for effective marketing. With your products and marketing messages in mind, your VA is able to craft copy to appeal to your ideal clients and communicate your unique value in solving their specific problems.

Designing

Your VA can ensure all your content fits with your business branding, such as e-newsletters, social images, presentations, e-books, banner adverts, and more!

Re-Purposing Content

Once you’ve created your content, your VA can re-purpose it by converting it into different formats, perhaps turning a blog post into a presentation, or series of blog posts into an e-book, or a video into an infographic.

Video and Audio

As the star of your show, you need to create the core content of your video or podcast, however once created you can delegate it to your VA for editing and uploading to your video host, website or members area.

Creating Affiliate Packs

If you have affiliates, your VA can create a pack for use in their marketing of your digital products. Tasks could include editing your material to the third person, so it reads as the affiliate talking about you, designing branded advertising banners, creating social media shareable images, and more!
