Are you ready to supercharge your business?

 
Let's Talk

New Business / Start-Up Support Ideas

1. Market Research

Assuming you have already done your market research for your product or service, you need to figure out how to be found online – how people are searching for similar products and services and what type of website, and social media platforms best suit your business model.

2. Business Planning

If you need funding or wish to apply for grants or enterprise support, you will need to develop your existing business plan into a presentation style, along with your speech, slides, visuals, and figures.

3. Start-Up Website setup

Setting up a basic website (or signing up with existing services) to get you online using the best platforms available (e.g. WordPress) and plugins to drive and attract traffic. Integrating other aspects such as payment systems, email marketing, etc.

4. Accounts Packages

Bookkeeping, Tax compliance, and Invoicing are an essential part of managing your business. You either love or hate accounts! Excel is not an accounting system, and NOT a good starting point. Accounting packages have become more intuitive and can even manage the double accounting system for you. But it is time-consuming, and it costs you more to do your daily/weekly accounts than spend that same time with your clients or working on an aspect of your business that will attract clients.

5. Marketing

What a heading – it’s too broad to mean just one thing. Your Marketing Plan needs to include Social Media marketing, such as blogging and managing social network accounts. It may include running a podcast, or video blog (vlogging) depending on your business type. Automating certain tasks can be a huge time saver for you the business owner. Getting the right advice to work on relevant (and profitable) platforms will kick-start your digital marketing campaign.

6. Customer Support

Your clients love you. They rely on you. But you cannot be there for them every single moment. You want them to feel appreciated and looked after, so having someone who can respond to their queries about a change of appointment or an update on their project will ensure you are in constant contact with them, even when you are physically present with another client.

7. Tech Support

Bridging the gap between soft service providers and the hardcore business of dealing with tech – that’s where I shine. My working life revolves around blending soft skills and the use of tech, bringing them together so they can communicate in synergy to help you drive your business forward.

8. Going Online – Sales Funnel

Setting up a sales funnel to market your products online. This is especially useful for content you have created and are already using offline. Creating written, audio, visual and interactive content to create extra revenue channels.

9. The Irish eyes are smiling

If you are still reading, you are definitely considering taking on the help you need. I have brought you this far and I can only make certain guarantees with regard to success. I will also offer you a smiling face with each call, a friendly approach, and an honest and transparent approach to our relationship. As a coach, my style is very direct, I like to cut to the chase. This is also my style as an Online Business Manager and Virtual Assistant.

Are you ready to start your online business?

Yes, I'm Ready!

Elaine really cares about doing the best for her clients.

Elaine gets really clear on a project so she can go ahead and do the required tasks. She gently chases me for an answer or input from me when she needs it. She listens carefully to my requirements. She takes initiative but also checks in to make sure I’m happy.

Stephanie Kakris ~ High Performance Club Pty Ltd.

 

Elaine is a recipe for success!

 

Elaine came up with a social media strategy my business and walked me through all the different platforms. She set up lots of back office scheduling tools to make the whole process smooth and efficient. I was kept accountable and having Elaine on board helped me overcome the overwhelm and resistance to publishing.

Louise Normandiere ~ Phrases Translations

From start to finish Elaine is amazing!

I am a control freak so handing something over and not micromanaging is difficult for me but with Elaine, I am able to just send the info and leave her to it, and the results are always perfect. I know how difficult it is to find really good support and how bad experiences can put people off outsourcing, but not outsourcing prevents you from growing your business, so finding the right person is imperative and Elaine is that person.

Michelle Nunan ~ Divisoup and & Pink Gecko Media

Elaine just gets the job done!

Elaine came highly recommended. She is always on time, always proactive rather than reactive (I like that), and a lovely person too. She’s easy to work with, works to a minimal brief, and just gets the job done.

Andrew Palmer ~ Elegant Marketplace

 

Elaine is responsive, creative, and thorough.

Elaine came highly recommended. She is responsive, creative, understands the briefs and delivers precisely to it. She questions and clarifies as needed. Elaine is a great person to work with. She is creative and very thorough. She makes sure she understands what is needed and delivers what she promises, on time.

Helen Jones ~ Pelican Marketing & Reseach

I wish I could work with Elaine full-time!

When I spoke with Elaine, I was impressed with her knowledge and aptitude. She is organised, exceptionally capable, and knowledgeable about business and marketing. Elaine is truly exceptional at her job and she consistently goes over and above the call of duty to help me deliver results in a very short time.

Emma D'Arcy ~ Emma D Marketing

Elaine’s questions and approach forced me to step up!

I was spending time and energy doing things for my business I didn't want to do and didn't feel like I was getting good value from my last VA. I work with Elaine because of her coaching background, and her no-bullsh*t approach. I have had things fixed and changed in my business I didn't know were an issue, and Elaine’s questions and approach have forced me to step up as a business owner and take my business more seriously.

Caroline Southwell ~ Caroline Southwell Dot Com

 

Elaine is a great communicator and delivers!

I was overwhelmed when it came to funnels and how everything would integrate. I found Elaine helpful, clear and organised before we even began to work together. She is approachable and pro-active in her communications. Elaine will get down to the nitty-gritty of what you’re trying to achieve in your business and not make assumptions.

Nicola Potzas ~ nicolapotzas.com

 

Elaine is very well organised and straight-forward.

Chaos is disappearing! I've tried planning my time for the past 4 years and failed miserably. Elaine is very well organised and is straight-forward. She tells me what to do, when and how, with great tools. She encourages me and I feel more self-confident. I am learning a lot AND achieving a lot too!

Barbara Pani ~ Steven Harkin Design

 

Elaine does an excellent job!

Recently Elaine worked with one of our clients to produce website content by interviewing, corresponding and writing SEO friendly content. She treated our client with respect and did an excellent job.

I encourage anyone looking for this service to avail of Elaine’s talents in this area.

Niamh Ni Chearbhaill ~ Spiralli Business Solutions

 

Elaine is Awesome!!

She has worked with us in a number of different capacities over the last number of years and most recently as a virtual trainer delivering training in ‘Social Media for Business’ webinars for one of our largest clients. Elaine always goes above and beyond of what is expected of her and is a true professional in everything she does.

Marieanne O'Driscoll ~ E-Bridge Training

 

Elaine offers a high quality, friendly and efficient service.

Elaine is a dynamic and engaging person and this allied to her deep knowledge of training methods and ability to grasp the details of the application ensured her success. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elaine as she has proven to offer a very high quality, friendly and efficient service.

Terry Casey ~ IT Services Delivery Manager

 

Elaine is a safe pair of hands for my company reputation.

 

Elaine delivered bespoke training to one of our most important clients. She was meticulous in her preparation of notes for the training. She made a great impression on the client and the feedback I got was excellent. I felt that Elaine was a safe pair of hands for my company reputation and I would recommend her services to anyone.

Ruairí Browne ~ Software Development Manager

Elaine’s articles are interesting and thought-provoking!

Elaine’s articles are always interesting and thought-provoking and demonstrate her in-depth knowledge of how to motivate and empower individuals.

She is always courteous and professional and very impressive when delivering presentations.
