Hootsuite, Twitter, and Your VA – The Perfect Social Circle


Hootsuite is a social media platform that allows you to schedule multiple updates across several social profiles in advance, monitor different social media accounts on one screen, search for potential followers and even invite members of your team to get involved.

To get started, all you need to do is sign up for a free account at Once you’ve set up your account, the site will display a screen giving you the option to connect your existing social media accounts to your new Hootsuite interface. The easiest place to start is Twitter. Once you’ve done that, you can schedule as many tweets per day as far in advance as you’d like. Then just sit back and watch as Hootsuite posts the tweets for you as instructed.

Super Problem Solver

Working Together Teamwork Puzzle Concept

“I can’t say enough great things about [my VA]. The most significant quality [my VA] brings to her job is the ability to problem solve and find solutions. Even if she does not have the answers (which most of the time she does) she will figure it out through her own means of research. I feel extremely fortunate to have found her for my team. Not only is she organized and extremely capable she is an absolute delight to work with!” >> Consultant & Coach, San Diego, California

WoW!  Log into your email account and see yourself cc’d on this email to your boss.  What a way to start your day!  The client that sent this has a website that she had been working on building for several months.  She has a web guy who does techie stuff, but wants someone to add the personality (the formatting to make it look pretty) part to it.  She writes the text of what she wants for her website/blogs, as well as her teaching program, and then asks me to proof it, make it pretty and make it live.  It’s not that this client is incapable of doing the work herself, as she does several things herself, but she chooses to use me to get these time-consuming tasks done while she focuses on other things.  She knows she can give me her text and just walk away. She is confident that it will get done and it frees up her time, and more importantly, her mind.  We communicate regularly – via phone and email – just like in a real office.  She said she really enjoys doing this because she can use me as a sounding board.  She throws out an idea, not even knowing if it’s a doable idea, and eagerly waits for my response.  I will either give her a “Yeah,” a “Nay,” a “What about this ____?” or in some cases a “I’ll do some research on that.” It keeps her excited about her business advancements and sometimes even brings new ideas into HER head.
