Sales funnels for virtual assistants can be an absolute game changer for their marketing and business.
Imagine not having to spend time constantly marketing but have it on auto-pilot. Set up the funnel once and make money from it ongoing. It sounds to good to be true but you can easily do it with some inspiration.
A virtual assistant’s business value is often overlooked by most. In this article I discuss setting up a sales funnel because it will bring several benefits.
In this article I have come up with a few sample sales funnels to give you inspiration. The better you know your target market and their problems or issues the more effect your funnel will be.

An online sales funnel is an automated marketing system that takes your prospects on a journey that you have created. The journey will eventually lead them to a sale and hopefully return sales.
Part of the journey is to build trust and integrity so that they believe in you and your service. With available technology you can create this sales funnel using email, sales and landing pages, thank you pages and automated payments and receipting.
The added value to you is that once you have invested the time in developing your sales funnels, there is very little demands on your time to complete the sale. The sales funnel stays in place for many months with no more than a few tweaks required from you. Therefore it is a smart way to grow a passive income stream for your business.
In addition, online sales funnels are a great opportunity for virtual assistants because they can make the intangible skills and knowledge you have and convert them into tangible information products to sell.
This is the best way to start earning a passive income that isn’t linked to selling your time. After all you only have so much time to spare! It does mean that you need to make the time investment in advance of making a sale. However, you can continue to tweak and test the funnel until you get it operating at the level you want.
Virtual assistants often can’t see how they can benefit from setting up their own sales funnels. They seem to think that it works for others but won’t for them. This is because it’s too difficult to look at it from a 30,000 metre view and compare it with what they already do and their specific goals.
Most people these days have been involved in a sales funnel of some sort. They may or may not have completed the funnel but they certainly have downloaded a lead magnet in return for providing their email address.
They might even have been offered a low cost offer and even a core offer without realising what was happening.
I am hoping that providing these examples of sales funnels for virtual assistants you will be inspired to get started with internet marketing to not only build your list but to sell information products based on your skills, knowledge and experience. The long term benefits far out weigh the required time and money investment.

This sales funnel is one for a virtual assistant who offers proof reading, editing and writing services. The virtual assistant likes to work with self-publishers, academics and students. She wants to attract new self-publishers to her community and wants to earn a passive income from this. She finds that she works best with these clients.
In this example, the virtual assistant helps her clients with web maintenance, social media and general customer service tasks. Now, it is possible to set up a separate funnel for each, to prioritise the virtual assistants reviews her current workload, assesses which market brings in the most profits for her and understands the size of the market. She decides that she wants to build her first funnel for small local businesses who want to do more with their website. The virtual assistant knows that she doesn’t want to create a website herself but she works with someone who can do this work for her at a set rate of $300.
In this example, the virtual assistant offers transcription, typing and telephone support to her clients. She already attracts a lot of clients through her marketing plan and activities. She wants to attract other transcriptionists and typists through her funnel so that she can provide them with work when she is over-worked or on holiday. This funnel is for this purpose.
