Business Opportunities in Mobile Marketing: The You Tube Version

Hi! It’s been a while since I last posted here. Been very busy with my video training with my awesome, “soon to be client”, taking care of my baby plus there’s the problem of internet connection being very slow. Anyway, I had the chance to attend the webinar (free!) of Sir Jomar Hilario on How to Earn Money using YouTube and Facebook. Since it’s a learning webinar (that’s how great my mentor is!), we have the chance to try it ourselves and thus I decided to make a video of the Business Opportunities in Mobile Marketing, which of those of you who follow me here, I already posted as a Presentation using Slideshare. Until now, have not explored yet how to put together the slides in pixlr as a form of Infographics.

Anyway, I’ll do that soon and share it here. For now, I would like to share with you the output of the YouTube  Video I created through the webinar of Sir Jomar Hilario. Tutorial on this will also be posted soon.

Mobile Marketing

Late last year, I got hold of the December 2012 – January 2013 issue of the magazine, Entrepreneur Philippines, from my sister. It’s quite a while that I haven’t purchased its back issues. I love Entrepreneur magazine just as I love Kerygma. I collect both for the former gives me guides and tips on how to be my own boss while the latter is my source of inspiration in the spiritual aspect.

Anyway, the latest issue of Entrepreneur Philippines features the trending business opportunities in 2013. One of these is Mobile Communication. Just take a look at your Facebook wall, local newspapers, and television ads. A lot of different types of smartphones and tablets are now available in the market with very affordable prices compared to the previous years where only a few can avail.

According to Mashable, a new study shows that Mobile Web will rule by 2015. People are now spending more time then ever on their mobile phones and this is a great opportunity for businesses to reach consumers using Mobile Marketing. This is what keeps me restless nowadays. Why? Because I believe that this recent trend will greatly benefit FilipinoVirtual Assistants. That this is the right time to evolve as a Virtual Assistant.

Sir Jomar Hilario’s latest post on his website is in line with this. The uprising demands for Virtual Assistants worldwide just pushes me to be more up to date with the latest trends in technology and what necessary skills are needed to compete with this new 409170_10150589011303382_659798381_9122771_460388664_nwave of opportunity, which some say is unlimited.

This is where my new journey starts and I want you to journey with me and let us evolve together as Filipino Virtual Assistants. In the coming weeks, I will be posting topics on tools, programs and websites which are useful in Mobile Marketing. Don’t forget to subscribe here to keep you updated with the latest trends that can benefit us, Filipino Virtual Assistants. Mabuhay tayong lahat! 🙂

My Interest with Pinterest

pinterest

I first learned about Pinterest through my mentor, Sir Jomar Hilario and got hooked with it. Pinterest is your virtual pinboard where you can organize anything you find in the web that is of your interest like inspirational quotes that makes your day, food recipes that you are planning to prepare for your family, how to make different kinds of crafts to keep your sanity of taking care of your kids , home decor ideas for your dream home, your favorite books and even different kinds of information on how to work from home as a Virtual Assistant.

For me, Pinterest have great advantages to entrepreneurs  especially those in the small and medium enterprises and online sellers. These are the following:

1) It’s a great venue for them to showcase their beautiful products and services.

2) Creates links to people who have great interest with their products and services which can be their potential clients.

3) Get to know more their market for effective strategies and promotions.

Now my personal interest with Pinterest is this. Since most entrepreneurs are so busy planning and finding means to grow their businesses, they have no time to focus on tasks such as marketing and promotions. I have learned from different sources on the topic of Entrepreneurship that at present, one effective way of businesses to reach  their market is through their online presence. Meaning, they have to have their own websites and sign up with the different social media available. This is where the help of a Virtual Assistant (VA) comes in. They can hire VAs to take care of those tasks such as creating websites, signing up for the different social media, marketing and promoting. This is where I can be of service to entrepreneurs and business minded people.

With the Philippines experiencing growth in economy and the stock market, I am hopeful that Virtual Assistants will not only be in demand to foreign clients but to Fil;ipino entrepreneurs and businessmen as well.
