With Christmas right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the ways your Creative VA/ Social Media Assistant can help you get through this busy time. So here are 24 ways your VA can help you this festive season.
On the first day of Christmas, my VA brought to me…
1. Content planning
This is part of your Creative/ Social Media VA’s expertise; they can help you come up with ideas for your festive content.
2. Christmas Décor
Hang up your virtual Christmas decs. Your VA can temporarily add festivity to your logos, website design and social media.
Christmas is a busy time in both your professional and personal life. Make sure you have the time to enjoy this festive season too, your VA can help you schedule your time as well as your social media posts and content.
Lighten some of your workload. For example, if you have any photos, audio or video that need editing before you post them or any administrative tasks that you don’t have time for.
5. Blog posts
You may want some more festive content and blog posts for your website, but not enough time to create it. Your VA can do this for you and even come up with some ideas so you don’t have to.
6. Social Media Takeover
Social media is essential but can be time-consuming. Your Social Media Assistant can take control of your social media to keep it updated while you’re busy with your Christmas rush and personal plans.
7. Season’s Greetings
Your Creative VA can help to create a Christmas message for your clients/customers, perhaps a Christmas card or email to show your clients/ customers how much their support means to you.

A great way to market your business on social media is by having fun and joining in on social media trends. For example, creating Instagram reels can be confusing and time-consuming, but they are great at bringing more traffic to your social media. So why not get your Creative VA to help you with this.
