Win a pack of 6 eBooks for your VA business
Businesses in 2023 are relying more heavily on virtual assistants than ever before. In turn VA’s are expected to offer an expanded skill-set. One of these services is design for social media & blog graphics as well as web-sites. There are loads of cost effective tools at our disposal which can help us to service our clients (canva is the image king at the moment & wordpress is in fierce competition with squarespace for web fame) – but these programs & platforms are simply the tools we use to get the job done … they are a means to an end! They will never replace the skill & knowledge of the user.
Unless we understand the theory behind design we will never be able to become truly skilled. This is why Enterprise by Design is developing a Learning Lab. The Learning Lab is designed to take you beyond the tools & help you to understand what makes a good design. Through courses, templates, eBooks & workbooks, the lab will give you the confidence to tackle more powerful tools that will help you to compete in, what is becoming, a crowded market.
Understanding design tools, rules & theory & how they fit into the marketing mix will help you to

- add to your service offerings
- make more money
