  • You need a basic understanding of what a Blog is and why it’s important for online business owners.

WordPress Content Management is managing existing content for clients. Whether it's posting to their blog, modifying content on their website pages, or adding to their sidebar, this all encompasses WordPress Content Management.

Those who take this course can choose to provide content management for WordPress only or take it a step further and add social media content management or even provide content ideas. It's completely up to you in how you choose to provide the service.

As a virtual assistant business owner, I have worked with clients virtually for over seven years. With WordPress being one of the most widely used website formats, it's an easy choice for online business owners to use it for their business. While many are using it, they also are finding time to be limited to get everything done for their business.

This is where having someone manage their content is important. Not only is it smart, but efficient. Outsourcing WordPress Content Management means business owners utilizing online tools can stick to what they do best. Allowing you to do what you do best.

This course is for virtual assistants interested in adding to their current service offerings or a new virtual assistant who is not sure what to offer, however has a strong interest in blogging and WordPress.

You will not find a lot of technical jargon in this course. It is written with the virtual assistant business owner in mind. It's also designed to be interactive where you complete exercises after each section within your own WordPress website.

It's important to note: Having your own WordPress website is not required. This will be covered at the beginning of the course.

Helping new virtual assistants increase their monthly income

I am the CEO and Founder of Virtual Hired Hand, a technical virtual assistant company. After working in corporate America for over 12 years, I discovered a website called Elance and got started taking on projects virtually from my home in North Carolina. It's been seven years since that first project and I have not looked back.

My business has grown and I have been privileged to work with clients ranging from coaches, trainers, health professionals, affiliate marketers, real estate agents, authors, psychologists, internet marketers and more. I’ve been a virtual assistant to many and an executive virtual assistant to one.

In 2013, I partnered with a multimillionaire client to coach over 20 virtual assistants through an intense 120-day program. Most of those virtual assistants were just starting out and have since been able to create the business of their dreams making it as full-time or part-time as they want.
