Thinking About Buying Stock Photos from Fiverr? Better Think Again
(07 March, 2013)
It is not a good idea to buy stock photos from Fiverr or similar services.
You won’t get the copyright information with it. In other words, you will purchase pirated stock photos and paying money for it.
What’s the worst thing that can happen?
Well, a stock photo bank can catch you using those photos and then it’s going to get really expensive. Legal fees and legal battles are not known to be easy and easily paid.
So do yourself a favor and stay away from services like Fiverr if you are looking for stock photos. I’ve made the same mistake but luckily my only damage has been to pay $5.

Prioritizing Your Work for Your Virtual Assistant If There Is Too Much To Do
(11 March, 2013)
Sometimes, I would have so many ideas I would like to hire ten virtual assistants and get them all done. But before I do this, I need to stop myself and think.
No one can start out and have enough work to do and manpower to supervise ten virtual assistants. So, I keep the numbers of co-workers on my team low. At the moment, there’s my main virtual assistant and my transcriptionist.
For times like these where I have several projects running, I simply prioritize the tasks and let my virtual assistant know which tasks to attack right away and which tasks later when there’s more time.
How Your Virtual Assistant Can Help You with Video Search to Create Great Content
(19 March, 2013)
Short, time-effective but effective method to build quality content fast.
Step 1: Have your virtual assistant research videos regarding your niche subject on YouTube.
Step 2: Have him compile the best videos in an Excel-sheet
Step 3: Watch one video – Take notes
Step 4: Record a voice transcript with your thoughts about this video
Step 5: Your virtual assistant creates a post out of the transcript and embed the video that inspired your blog post.
Step 6: Feel free to contact the video owner that you have made a post based on his video. He might promote this on his own social networks and you gain double.
Step 7: Enjoy great new content on steroids and great new relationships.

Good Tool for Video Instructions but It Is A Little Slow
(13 March, 2013)
It takes an awful lot of time to start up when you don’t have it run in the background. And when it does run in the background, it takes a quite considerable amount of computer resources.
Do you have the same experience than I have?
I’m always on the lookout for better programs to make managing my assistants easier. Actually, my VA has researched a big list of transcription programs for me. I’ll feature them in a future post.
For now, Jing still is the most efficient tool for a screen recording in my opinion. Just the start up time is bothering me a little bit.
