With more and more businesses moving into the digital marketing space, there are so many reasons to start a blogging VA business. Businesses are realizing the power of blogging, and how it helps with SEO. However, blogging takes a long time – and that is where you come in! If you are a virtual assistant looking to niche down and start a blogging VA business, here are 4 reasons why that’s a smart business move!
When you start to master a service, and really make it your signature service, you can charge more! For example, if you are Google Analytics certified and are an SEO pro, you can charge much more for a blog post. A newer blogging VA might charge $50-$100 for a blog post. But an expert can charge $150+ per post.
Some virtual assistants love hourly work – others do not! If you are in the latter group, you are going to love blogging, since you can easily package it up for your clients. When I got started as a virtual assistant in 2018 I did ALL the things. It was non-stop hourly tasks, and it got exhausting, and just wasn’t something I loved. I hated opening my inbox since I knew there would be more assignments, and I would be up all night finishing tasks. But now? NO more hourly tasks! Everything is packaged with structured boundaries.
Here is a fact I didn’t even believe at first: Blogging is a scalable service. When I started offering Blogging I thought there was NO way I could grow a team with it as our main service. Boy, was I wrong! In 2021 I focused on growing a team, and now have three writers who help out! I went from working with 8 clients writing 20-30 blogs per month by myself, to 18 clients (with even more booked for 2022) and 60+ blogs per month.
Because they are packed, there is profit with every single client. That means our cash flow has increased, so no more month-to-month worries. In 2021, we made over $60K just in blogging.
Another reason I love blogging is that it is so easy to package with other services to maximize your profit.
