Today I was working in one of my clients’ Gmail account as this is the account that we do our WordPress work in. Imagine my astonishment when I came across this little gem.
Where do I start?
- Poorly constructed message. In fact, I would go so far as to term it both lazy and sloppy. There is nothing there that tells the potential client what her skill levels are and why she would be capable of helping him build and grow his online business.
- No punctuation.
- No proper capitalization.
- Her website is hosted on Homestead which violates all of my rules about self-hosting your website. Not only that, but she lists “Web Design” as one of her services. I won’t put a link to her site here, but can assure you that it is not professional in execution.
- Her primary verbiage on the front page was lifted word for word from MY website!
Again, I repeat, this is NOT how a confident, capable, and technically savvy Virtual Assistant acquires new clients.
