Yvonne Thompson

Virtual Partner & Project Manager
Virtual assistance services for the time-strapped professional


Yvonne's bio

If you need virtual support with the skills of an online business manager, then we might need to talk. My experience and skills sets are broad, so I am able to provide services in a wide range of areas from routine administrative support to system development and strategy design, including blog setup and management, social media networking, and product launches.

Blogging and social media management are at the top of my list of services. Being successful today means having an active online presence.

Building a blog and keeping it current is extremely time consuming. So I do it for my clients. I am a "ghost blogger". I write blog posts, set up new blogs, and maintain existing ones, as well as other social networking sites.

In addition, I recruit and manage virtual teams for clients. Some need and have many virtual experts, and it can become overwhelming to try to manage them plus their business.

Sometimes teams are people, sometimes they are processes and systems. Either way they need to be recruited or created, managed, and updated to run smoothly. Some clients have started to rely on me for this function.

Using social media haphazardly? It is much more effective and efficient if you have a strategy and a plan for measuring your activities. I help clients set up a social networking strategy and metrics for measurement.

If you need some marketing materials, I have added graphic design to my skill set due to my recent part time position as a public relations assistant at a local university.

My practice is expanding in many directions. I feel confident that it will evolve more as I grow more, both professionally and personally. Stay tuned.
