    Hello Everyone,

    As some of you might know I have been running a successful VA service in BHW for the past 3 years. However, I feel that there is still room for improvement. So guys, what skills do you think your VA should have to make your life easier? It would be great if you can be specific in your answers. For example, instead of telling that your VA should have SEO Skills, it would be nice to have something specific like he should have experience in creating PBNS, increasing the site speed or comfortable in using Ahrefs and reverse engineer the backlinks.

    The feedback from this thread will be used to create a curriculum to train VA's specifically for BHW members.

    To get the things done, be prepared. Know everything VA's should, in advance. That's about it, in general. :)

    Doesn't have to be fast, being correct and doing things the proper way is more important IMHO.

    More important than knowledge is the mindset, a great VA is pro-active, always thinking what could be done next to improve things.

    It totally depends for the job. But as previously mentioned, a VA that is pro active and is able to take decisions on his own is a HUGE plus. Attention for detail is also a big plus, that things get done and get done right.
