This post was inspired by a friend’s question. “If you’re a virtual assistant, why did you get a website?” That lodged a thought in mind. Why did we? Yes, we’re providing online services and having the website is a wise move for that matter. But another forward-looking wisdom behind getting Oh!SomeAngels website in action is that we could make money from it as well. Aside from internet-based work, we could get into affiliate marketing, and in a few months, maybe sell an ebook. *wink*
OK. I take it back. I will have gifts for every visitor who wants to be a virtual assistant. And another freebie for clients who contract a per-article project with us. Soon. I’m crossing my fingers now.
Anyways, after three months, the Oh!SomeAngels are all deep – and happy! – with their assigned projects. Each of them have between 30 to 40 hours of work each week. As for me, I take writing projects here and there, and do my routines; just some 14 to 20 hours per week, sometimes less. I’m happy about it. We’re making money indirectly from the website.
Until another friend asked, “Did you really have to get a website?”
Well, yes, I replied. With the website, all trained writers and virtual assistants could just refer their works to potential employers. I could also give recommendations to them. That’s one of the website’s purposes. Then, of course, I want to continue sharing information on how this industry works, how to make money online and how to go about the life of doing virtual work.
“So how are you earning with the website?” Actually, not much. We’re earning with the work that we put in each week. For now, we’re also getting started on affiliate marketing which is a guaranteed big-time earner. I just have to give the Oh!SomeAngels time to settle down, and get someone to specifically focus on the money-making aspect of the website. We’re patiently working on it, with all-out help from foremost internet marketing guru, Stuart Stirling.
At this point, I am thoroughly convinced that getting this website was the best move for me and the Oh!SomeAngels. I am fully decided as well to make money from it. So watch out starting now and until that time that me and the Angels take a one-week break as we go on an all-expenses paid getaway to somewhere close to heaven.
