How to create a Virtual Assistant Website on Wix
No surprise, the virtual assistant industry is BOOMING! This is awesome because it allows so many women the opportunity to work from home, part-time, full-time or even as a side hustle.
But the question is, how do you stand out in such a saturated market that people can easily jump right into?
A killer website that shows you as the professional that people need to hire. That’s how.
So how do you get that shiny new website? You are no website designer, coding makes your brain hurt, and you definitely don’t want to shell out thousands of dollars hiring it out. Being a new business owner, you don’t need a custom website. You just need one that works and is on-brand and has a clear message for your visitors.
Wix is a great way to build a website for your virtual assistant business. It is a drag-and-drop website builder with built in blogging. That means easy and user-friendly with no coding involved plus SEO (search engine optimization).
A Wix subscription includes your website hosting and the builder, so all you’ll need outside of that is your domain... which Wix can also provide!
I’ll break it down for you.
Wix is your website host & provider. You’ll pay a subscription to them monthly (or annually and save a few bucks). Pricing is broken down here. The pricing is more expensive than just self-hosting a wordpress site, BUT you are paying for a few things that will make your life oh-so-much-easier.
Top of the line support. Wix’s support is amazing and always there to help if you have any issues at all with your website.
User-friendly, state of the art website building app. You dream it, you can do it. No coding involved. You’ll save yourself so much time and frustration making easy updates to your site without having to outsource.
Friendly and helpful community. Wix is smaller than a lot of the other website building platforms, which means a more intimate community that will help you around every turn.
A built-in blog with SEO. This will mean more traffic coming from google and better optimization for your site.
Alrighty, ready to get started? Wix is free until you connect a domain, so go ahead and sign up! Then you can start working on your website right away.
If you check out the Wix Templates after signing up, you’ll see lots of options for all different kinds of professions.
While you can definitely start from one of the free templates, it will most likely mean ALOT of time customizing it to fit your needs as a virtual assistant. Which you can totally go for, if you prefer!
But I’ve created a Wix template for virtual assistants in order to give you a headstart on mapping out your content and needs and to get your website launched FAST. What you see in the site demo is exactly how it will look in your account once you purchase and add it in there (I’ll show you how to do all this in my step-by-step video that comes with your template). Follow the placeholders throughout the site and add in your own wording and images. It’s really that simple.
You can easily create a website for your virtual assistant business and get launched within a day or two if you have a good idea of who you are serving, what you are offering and how to book with you.
