What a journey this past year has been! Firstly, owning a virtual assistant company was never even on my radar much less on my goal list.
One thing I have learned over the years is to be aware of what doors God opens for me. He knows more about what I need to do than I do. He is in control. If I but choose to do his will, I will not go down the wrong path.
I like to be in control and I want to do everything on my own without reaching out to Heavenly Father. I pray for things that I want, that I know I want, and not for what he has in his plans for me.
Well, this virtual assistant company was a blessing. It was a gift from God. There is no other reason why I would acquire a company. So when the very clear advice came to me from the holy Spirit I knew this was the way I needed to go.
And how right that decision was!!!
The short video above is about half of our team. The ladies and gentleman in this video are in our Manila department. The Cebu department will be having their party in November.
I had faith that everything would work out. After all, if Heavenly Father wanted me to work my tail off in this company he would also make sure I was successful! I took a HUGE leap of faith in order to acquire, revamp, and grow this company.
Well, a year later and we have GROWN!!!! My how we have GROWN!!!
And to top it all off... we are successful beyond my expectations for a company being in business only one year. We have a lot of team members in the Philippines working part and full time.
My main financial goal I wanted was to not be in the red even in the first month in business and I wasn't!
My main client goal was to make sure our communication system was top notch and it is! We use Trello for our communication and our project management system! LOVE IT! Our clients LOVE IT!!!
My main team member goal was to make sure that each VA excels in their passions, in what they love to do. This way, we have specializations which brings higher quality output.
There is always room for improvement. Where I have been weakest is in the exact part of the business we do for all of our clients! My own marketing!
About 80% of my clients are referrals and past clients, website clients, coaching clients, etc. The other 20% are clients I meet on Facebook, in FB groups. I have been so blessed I have not paid for an ad yet and I am still so busy with new clients to onboard that I don't have time to market to cold leads.
My new goal for this quarter was to create the Get It Done For Me Virtual Services Facebook page! I did that this past weekend.

If you are a real estate agent or broker you understand the power is in the listing. He or she who owns the listing lasts in this business.
With all new technology there are positives and negatives.
Technology helps us do more tasks however, sometimes we are either encouraged to use short cuts and sometimes we are just plain lazy and look for ways to get done faster and with less effort.
This happens with syndicating your listings on the internet.
What started out as a really time saving idea of having our listing syndicated to all the different portals on the internet but ended up losing sight of owning our listings online.

SEO is back with a vengeance! We are seeing some amazing results on page one and page 2 with brand new websites and blog content.
Then I went back to older sites to see how they are doing and they also are showing up on page one.
Google made what most would think is an insignificant change not in their algorithm ( although Google is always updating their algorithm) but rather in the application of serving up the algorithm.
This little seemingly insignificant shift appears to be favoring those of us who are not huge brand names.
Before Google invented their zoo of animals, panda, penguin, pigeon- most of us were rocking it with our SEO. Then with the zoo animals being set loose to wreak their havoc a lot of people lost their income, their leads and their positions almost overnight. The winners through the zoo rotation were the big name brands.
The little guy, small business owners, real estate agents, dentists and marketers took a huge hit because even the past head huncho over at Google said they needed to clean up the ‘cesspool' on the internet and favor the big brands.
Over time the shift tended back again toward quality content and long form content. Then a very interesting shift happened that many people would not notice.
When I started the building the latest 3 websites for clients- we noticed there was a shift back to good content and keywords, so much so, that well, you will need to get on this Free webinar where I will show you what I am talking about and also tell you what we believe may be the reason we are getting these sudden boosts of page one rankings!
I ran a few tests on some brand new niche websites I am building for our real estate company and it held true again.
If you are in real estate- how would you like to rank ahead of Zillow?
If you are a dentist, how would you like to rank ahead of the big directories?
While Google favors big brands, I will show you what we see is happening where the small time brands are able to position themselves out in front!!!
I can’t wait to share what we are finding with you!!!

Case Study- This is the case study of one of my client's brand new websites. When I build a website for a client the first thing we do is go over their keyword strategy and get to know their avatar and if it is a local business, their geo tags and terms as well as do a study on their competition. This session takes a little over an hour or so.
In this study my client, Rhonda is a broker and owner of a boutique real estate brokerage in a highly competitive market in Northern California.
We build websites as they are already published on a server and have wordpress installed. Then I take some time to come up with the best way to connect to the client's avatar, a study of color, design, focal points and call to actions.
I started this site about 3 weeks ago. As soon as I start the site I want Google bots to start crawling the site and I want them to keep coming back during the building stage. And they do.
This is what Rhonda's website looks like right now:
Within just a few days her site was indexed. It took about 2 weeks to get the site to be on page 1 and page 2 for her 5 sets of keyword phrases, we were only focusing on 3. For this keyword phrase, 3 weeks ago she was on page 2 for her brand new website.[bctt tweet=”SEO is still alive and ranking on Google can still be done! “]
Now one week later, she is on page one on Google! Check it out. If you like what you see, we can help you with a brand new website and hopefully your site will rank this fast too!
For one of the tougher competitive keywords she has spots # 2, 3 and 4 on page 2! This is so exciting!!! I love it when my clients get surprised like this. Even though I put a plan into place, I had no idea that she was going to rank this fast.
In fact, I was not even going to check the SERPS so soon. I can't really remember what we were discussing when I thought I would check the SERPS. It was a wonderful surprise!
So with the next website I am building– I thought, hmmm, maybe we can keep on this roll! And sure enough! We are! The next case study is having the same kinds of results which I will share in another post!
Within 3 weeks she has moved up the Google Ranks and all of her 5 sets of keyword phrases are now on page 1 on Google except one! Not only that since she is a real estate broker she has some pretty tough big boys to go up against like Zillow. However, we know how to beat them. We also know that she wants to get listings, so some of our target keywords are words that a sellers would type in to Google.
For seller keyword phrases we got her on page one on Google in the #7 and #8 spots – in just 2 weeks of doing that particular content on her brand new website. This is amazing for her since her old site did not rank for any of these keywords.
And in her niche, it is very competitive! We have some other heavy duty competitors with pretty good SERPS positioning. We looked for the holes in their SEO and flew in right under their radar!
Here is another tough keyword phrase that is popular to compete for and she was on page 2 last week and now is on page one on Google!

Free Webinar: Using Trello for Projects | Management | Organization and more.
Trello is free. Please use my invitation link here:
This is one of my most requested tutorials. I created some video tutorials on using Trello. They are among my most popular video tutorials. Based on these requests I decided to offer you a webinar to show you live how we use Trello.
Trello is a very visual organization app. If you are a visual person you will fall in love with Trello. If you like to work fast and easy… all my webinars are about systems and apps that make your work faster, more efficient and not rocket science.
There is so much you can do in Trello and now, even better, you can use Zapier with Trello to streamline even more tasks.
I use Trello for contact management, travel trips, website creation planning and executing, project management, homeschool records, house inventory, recipes and menus complete with shopping lists, Christmas planning and gift logs and so much more. I run nearly my entire business on Trello.
This will be a live webinar. I will not have slides as this is for hands on learning. You will want to make it to the live training so you can follow along. I will record the webinar but as always, if a technical problem occurs, there is no guarantee the recording will work. So it is always best if you can attend the webinar live.
The webinar is on Wednesday January 27, 2016 at 8 p.m. eastern standard time.
Please share this on twitter:[bctt tweet=”Free Webinar: Using Trello for Projects & Organization in biz & personal life,”]

Speed Hack Your Way to a Gorgeous WordPress Website- Free Webinar! No coding skills required. So easy a 5th grader can learn how to do this.
Join me for another Free webinar! I hope you are getting a lot out of my free webinars.
January 13th at 8 p.m. eastern time I will be hosting and teaching a free webinar.
Go now to register for the webinar: http://katerinagasset.com/wordpress-ninja-moves-with-thrive-themes
I am going to show you:
We only have an hour together so I will show you as much as I can in that hour.
We will have a short Q&A after the webinar if there is something in particular you want me to show you.
This is going to be an online live training so I won't have any slides. I won't be walking through any slides. It is all hands on live on the wordpress platform.
I will record the webinar and send out the replay but there is no guarantee that this will work. As always, we will have the recording as long as there are no tech glitches in regards to the recording. I highly suggest you be live on the call for this webinar.
I also advise that you access the webinar from your computer or laptop and not on a mobile device because I will be using my mouse and pointer over my screen and this does not always come out on your side in the best way. You won't be able to follow along so well on a mobile device.
I recommend you to open up a new window on your computer and have your wordpress site dashboard open in that window so you can follow along.
I highly recommend that you get Thrive Themes at http://KaterinaGasset.com/ThriveThemes. I am an affiliate and greatly appreciate you using my links to get your Thrive Themes membership. You don't need to have Thrive to attend my webinar but the tools we use are all in Thrive.
I am excited to share with you more of my speed hacks! I am all about the speed of which we can accomplish a task. Benchmarks are meant to be improved. The only way I can get all this done is 1. speed at task and 2. creating systems to delegate and 3. outsource my systems to my virtual assistant team. This is how you master your time and get things done.
See you soon!
