How to find, train and use a VA
As copywriters, we know that one thing we have far too little of is time. But is it actually possible to delegate some of your work to others?
We’re not talking about sub-contracting copywriting work to more junior writers. We’re talking about handing off the day-to-day admin to another human. Sounds good right?
In today’s episode, we’re talking about working with Virtual Assistants or VAs.
Is this a good way to grow your copywriting business? We’re sharing our experiences and advice on making the most of your VA relationship and the common pitfalls to avoid.
So, if you’ve ever wondered if a VA could be the solution to your admin nightmares, this is the episode for you.
Tune in to learn:
- What kinds of work a VA can help with
- How to find a great VA
- The pros and cons of overseas VAs
- How to train a VA
- How to get the most out of your VA

Thanks to Readwritelearnwell from the US for a fantastic review of the show.
I LOVED this episode – and I’ve actually since contacted a VA from Virtually Yours that I might end up working with on a regular basis. Thank you for making VA’s less of an abstract concept and more of a reality!
Great stuff Sarah-Joy!
