Backdrop on Social Media.
Although social media was once thought to be a fad, it has become clear that it’s a critical aspect of business marketing. In fact, social media isn’t just an important aspect, it’s stated as the number one aspect in marketing by 86% of business marketers (Read more: Social Media Examiner 2013 End of Year Report). 89% of marketers also stated in this same report that increased exposure is the largest benefit of social media marketing. Just one of the many things that virtual assistants can do for your business.
Using a Social Media Virtual Assistant to implement a social media marketing method can result in:
Increased traffic and a chance to go viral
Developing loyal fans
The only trouble with social media marketing is that it has a high learning curve. So while it may be less expensive when utilizing, it may take more time to break into this strategy.
Meet the Social Media Virtual Assistant
To bypass the difficulty and time associated with getting started in social, businesses employ the help of a social media virtual assistant.

Using a Social Media Virtual Assistant is a little-known strategy because just like social media was once seen as a fad, so is this strategy. Marketers look at all the spam on social networks today and attribute it to all to virtual assistants and their social media campaigns. This isn’t a good view because in reality virtual assistants only choose the marketing routes which their employers choose.
For example: at VAgency our virtual assistants are ready to identify customers and clients, engage with them in conversation, establish the brand, learn and listen to opinions, and define marketing objectives. We can spam if that’s what the project requires but typically we work with businesses that have a social media marketing plan, or businesses that want us to build one for them.
When executed properly a social media virtual assistant can boost sales and fans to new company records, but when social media is done right it can do all of this and much more without being nearly as expensive.
