Social Media Manager
You can help your clients manage their social media. As a manager, you may not even do the tasks. You could direct the client’s VA(s) about what to do, or you may have your own assistants who perform the functions that you direct.
Alternatively, you can do everything yourself using automation. But overall, you’ll manage your client’s social media marketing efforts from A to Z.
Social Platform Expert
Do you enjoy working on platforms such as Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or others? You can use this expertise to grow your client’s social platform(s).
You’ll want to know the platform inside and out so that you can help your clients get the most out of their marketing efforts on that platform.
Facebook Live Consultant
A lot of people like to use Facebook Live to market their business and expand their reach.
If you know how to, you can help your clients by advising them on how to conduct Facebook Lives effectively.
YouTube Marketing Expert
Likewise, if you’re good at building profitable or popular YouTube channels, you can provide a few services as a consultant.
Or, you may also just want to offer video editing services. Your clients can send you their raw footage which you edit, perfect and put online for them.
Sales Funnel Strategist
Everyone is all about the funnel these days. Do you know how to plan and set up effective funnels? This is a wonderful way to offer services.

A consultant usually works with a particular type of business to help them achieve a goal.
For example, you may choose to help other people start a successful company like yours or help them expand in a new way.
You could also offer project management services.
Anything you’re good at doing with WordPress is an excellent service to offer.
You could offer services like setting up additional software like plugins or templates or adding new pages, managing updates, backups, and security.

Content Writer or Copywriter
While these are considered businesses, many virtual assistants offer services around content writing and even copywriting.
You may be hired to write some blog posts, product descriptions, or even help edit a sales page, all of which require skills in content writing and copywriting.
Content writers may also offer editing, formatting, and SEO help.
Content Marketing Strategist
If you’re good at looking at the overall big picture for your clients, you could become a content marketing strategist.
You’d help them know what types of content they need, how to repurpose the content they have, and how to consistently get the most out of their content marketing vision.
Facebook Ad Manager
Many business owners, such as coaches and product marketers like to run Facebook Ads. But, doing so can be a full-time job. It requires monitoring the ads that were posted, tweaking them, and even creating the ads with the help of a graphic designer.
If you have proven results from ads, this is a great niche.
Want to work with product creators? If so, a launch specialist who handles all the launches a business does is in high demand.
You’d help ensure that all aspects of a launch are set up and going smoothly. You’d use either your own team or their team depending on how you want to set up your business.
Many online business owners conduct regular webinars to help bring in more business and build brand awareness. Online course creators also like to use webinars to create and market their classes.
If you’re great with webinar technology, you can help your clients smoothly produce amazing webinars.
Live Event Expert
If you’re up to more excitement, you can become a live-event expert VA. You can help your clients set up their live events such as business meetings or training, ensuring that they’re successful even if you don’t attend the function yourself.
However, attending them can offer an excellent balance between working at home and getting out in the world too.
Landing Page Expert
If you’re an expert in particular software, you can help your clients set up their landing pages.
But you can also generalize and work with any software if you’re taking the role of advisor and letting someone else handle the technology.
Customer Service Manager
You can be a customer service manager, or you could provide customer service solutions for your clients such as responding to inquiries or managing their email.
You could set up help desk software (if they don’t already have one in place), then answer the help desk questions and handle the issues as they come through.
Another excellent position is that of the affiliate manager. You’d help manage your client’s affiliates, getting them excited to promote the products, provide material for them to use to market the products, and troubleshoot issues with payments.

Examples of in-demand technology right now include chatbots, live video, WordPress, Teachable, and many others.
Pinterest VA / Pinterest Manager
