International Virtual Assistants Day (IVAD) and the Online International Virtual Assistance Convention (OIVAC) are very special events for our industry. Not only are we showing the world just how much our industry has matured over the last 15 years, but we’ll also be showing them where we’re going in the future. It's a "New Decade...New Way to Work".
Many of our potentials clients, vendors and future virtual assistants still do not know enough about the industry. We want to change this and the OIVAC Media Committee will be working hard to promote these two events to the international media. However, we can gain even more awareness if you are willing to help the OIVAC Media Committee by distributing press releases to the local media in your community, as well. By working together, we increase the number of story angles the media can use to spotlight our industry. We’ll be giving them the national and international angle, but each of you will be providing the local angle. In the end, anytime a virtual assistant anywhere receives press coverage, we will be projecting an image of our industry around the world.
Here on the website you will find press release templates already written for you. All you need to do is read the directives below and fill in your information where indicated. You, of course, are not required to use these press release templates, but if you do not have a lot of experience in contacting the media, the templates work well because most of the work already has been done for you.
Thank you so much for your constant support.
