The 3rd annual OIVAC runs from May 15 -17, 2008. Entitled "Pathways to Successful VA Practices: Using Communication & Technology to Enhance Business", highlights various communication and technology resources virtual assistants can implement to increase business.

BALTIMORE, MD -- April 07, 2008 - Using the latest technological tools and the Internet, Sharon Williams, chairperson of Alliance for Virtual Businesses (A4VB), always envisioned creating an event that would gather together virtual assistants (VAs) worldwide for the purpose of mentoring, networking and education. Her dream finally became a reality in 2005 when the Online International Virtual Assistants Convention (OIVAC) happened with just one click of the computer mouse.

The 3rd annual OIVAC runs from May 15-17, 2008. Entitled "Pathways to Successful VA Practices: Using Communication & Technology to Enhance Business", highlights various communication and technology resources virtual assistants can implement to increase business. This internet-based convention is designed to bring together all virtual assistants for best practices seminars, training workshops, presentations and exhibits. Seminar topics include such diverse topics as tune up your tech, offering podcasting and audio services to your clients, creating a personal and company profile that attract clients, create a website to showcase your talents, create multiple streams of income: affiliate and internet marketing in a nutshell. The online convention includes a gala celebration and award ceremony honoring individuals dedicated to advancing the VA industry through mentoring, education and goodwill. Exhibitor halls are "live" 24/7. Admission to exhibit halls is free.

"We're inviting all VAs -- every aspiring, emerging and veteran virtual professional, along with clients, small businesses, corporate supporters, associates and potential prospects to participate in our global VA celebration," says Williams. "It will allow us to bring together all VA organizations and their memberships irregardless of geographic boundaries."

Virtual Assistants or VAs are independent entrepreneurs who work remotely and use the latest technology to deliver professional administrative, creative, managerial, technical, business back-office and/or personal support services to busy clients.

Since 1996 more than 40,000 professionals around the world have become VAs, and the industry continues to grow as more jobs are outsourced and more workers catch the entrepreneurship fever. This industry consists of highly-skilled working mothers, administrative assistants, real estate assistants and others who decided to start their own businesses in order to achieve a better work/life balance. According to a study conducted by Brenner Books in conjunction with A4VB in 2004, the United States accounts for the largest number of VAs followed by Canada, Australia and Great Britain.

"We have something for everyone -- from partnering and relationship development to introduction of new software, Web 2.0 marketing strategies and Internet-based technology enhancements - all accessible from the comforts of a home or office," says Williams. We look forward to meeting you at an online seminar, networking session or while visiting an exhibitor, all from your desktop or laptop computer.

Virtual Assistant Drops Clues During 45 Day Podcast & Blog Hopping Tour
Baltimore, MD – You can usually find what you’re looking for by following foot prints or other clues. That’s just what Virtual Assistants and Small Business owners alike are doing as they follow Sharon Williams on her adventure around the Web. The Podcast and Blog Hopping Virtual Assistant leaves clues at each of her stops – there will be 45 in all. Participants follow Williams around the Web as she travels from blog to podcast on her quest to promote the virtual assistant industry and collect the clue of the day. The clue is a scrambled word that they must unscramble and then record on a puzzle board. Puzzle boards are available on the OIVAC site.

Once participants have visited all 45 blogs and collected and unscrambled all the clues – they are ready to try their skill at deciphering the phrase. A drawing will be held of all the correct entries and the grand prize winner will receive a prize valued at $500. Additional prizes donated by VAs and business entrepreneurs will be awarded during the 2nd Annual Online International Virtual Assistant Convention held May 17-19. Participants learn something in the process. Williams answers questions posed by the blog owners and some of them are quite thought provoking. “I’ve had to really do my homework on a couple of them!” chuckles Williams. The whole idea is to educate the public about the virtual assistant industry and that seems to be happening with the variety of questions being asked and the number of stops planned.

Podcast & Blog Hopping Virtual Assistant Promotes Industry During 45 Day Tour

Baltimore, MD ―  We've heard about or read about tours designed to promote all kinds of causes or industries. But you've never read about something like this before. Sharon Williams, also known as the Podcast and Blog Hopping Virtual Assistant, will embark on a 45 Day Virtual Tour designed to promote the Virtual Assistant Industry. It's a grueling schedule, but Williams, who has been in training for this event, says she's up for the challenge.

The idea is simple. Sharon will visit a different blog or podcast each day, to answer questions about the Virtual Assistant Industry and its upcoming annual online convention. Utilizing social networking, she will introduce virtual assistance to bloggers around the world, with stops planned in Australia, Canada, the US, England and other countries. Ms. Williams will respond to questions regarding the industry's history, technology trends, benefits of working with VAs -- basically anything blog readers want to know about one of the fastest growing home-based businesses of the 21st century.

A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an entrepreneur providing administrative and other business support services to business owners, remotely. "This tour is an opportunity to educate executives and entrepreneurs about the advantages of working with VAs," states Ms. Williams. "Overworked and overwhelmed small business owners and solopreneurs can now delegate back office and mundane tasks to more than 20,000 work-from-home admin specialists, while they concentrate on responsibilities that fuel their passion."

As an added twist to this virtual event, Ms. Williams will leave a mystery clue at each stop, as well as a link to the previous stop's clue. Participants who solve the puzzle at the conclusion of the tour will be eligible for prizes donated by Virtual Assistants and other industry supporting businesses.

The Tour starts April 1 -- no fooling. The first week's schedule is as follows:

Prize drawings will occur during the International Virtual Assistant Day (IVAD) recognition and awards ceremony scheduled, Friday, May 18, 2007, at 5:30 p.m. EDT. The IVAD celebration is online, free and open to the public. Detail can be found at OIVAC.

Advocacy Group Launches First Online VA Convention Celebration Coincides with International Virtual Assistants Day

BALTIMORE, MD – Using the latest technological tools and the Internet, Sharon Williams, chairperson of Alliance for Virtual Businesses (A4VB), always envisioned creating an event that would gather together virtual assistants (VAs) worldwide for the purpose of mentoring, networking and education. Her dream finally becomes a reality when the Online International Virtual Assistants Convention (OIVAC) makes its debut with just one click of the computer mouse.

Coinciding with the first annual International Virtual Assistants Day on May 19, the OIVAC runs from May 18 – 20, 2006 . Entitled “Pathways to Successful VA Practices,” the internet-based convention is designed to bring together all virtual assistants for best practices seminars, training workshops, presentations and exhibits. Seminar topics include such diverse topics as how to retain clients through exception customer service, utilizing 21 st century technology in a virtual environment to working with international clients. The online convention includes a gala celebration and award ceremony honoring individuals dedicated to advancing the VA industry through mentoring, education and goodwill. Exhibitor halls are “live” 24/7 for 45 days. Admission to exhibit halls is free.
