3 Key Benefits Of Evernote to Small Business Owners

Last month I went to a local networking meeting about Evernote. I had heard of Evernote from several Virtual Assistants and on forums, but I did not know much about it.  Boy, am I glad I went to the live presentation. Evernote has become my “digital brain.” I can add all those items that I have to remember or want to remember or want to reference later.  It’s out of my head, and it’s not on a sticky note or hardcopy paper somewhere that I might run across sometime later in my life.

So what is Evernote? It is a virtual notebook with notes, or like a filing cabinet with all your files.

Evernote has many benefits. I use my Evernote for:

  1. Free; when you are a new small business owner, you want to find great tools that are free or of little cost. This is one tool that everyone can benefit in using.
  2. URLs; ever bookmark a URL in your browser and then you never can find it when you need it? Or you saved it on your tablet and not on your laptop? Exactly why I use Evernote.
  3. Client files; I have a notebook for each client with all their information, which I can then search on.  Tags can be added to your notes to make your search results even easier.

On the personal side, I use Evernote to keep lists as well such as:

  • Shopping
  • Birthday
  • Bucket
  • Christmas
  • Wish

Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Virtual Assistant Specializing in MemberGate

There are many reasons to hire virtual assistant to help you set up and run your membership site, but these three have the most value.

  1. Organizational Skills – Your virtual assistant (VA) can work with you on your timeline to get your site launched. In addition, your VA can advise you on what items are a priority for launch and which ones can be updated after the launch.
  2. HTML Support – You will not have to understand HTML code because your VA will already have the skills to work directly in the HTML code if needed.
  3. Send It and Forget It – Once you send something to your VA to add, modify or remove, it will be taken care of so it’s off your list and off your mind, allowing you to handle your higher-level responsibilities.

3 Myths About Membership Sites

There are many myths about what it takes to maintain and own a successful membership site. We are going to address three of them today:

MYTH #1 – You must be a subject matter expert

You do not need to be a subject matter expert. You are sharing your experience with your members who are excited about the same subject as you.  The goal is to have your members benefit from your knowledge by sharing it on your membership site.  Everyone is unique and provides unique content;your unique knowledge and insights are the benefits you bring to your members. s

MYTH #2 – You need to be a technical expert

In this day and age, you don’t need to be technically inclined to get your membership site started.  In fact, MemberGate lets you concentrate on making your business profitable instead of trying to figure out how to make it run. They set it up for you, including doing the graphics. They provide assistance to you including an online knowledgebase where they provide step-by-step instructions with screenshots and video to help you.  Additionally, you can hire a Virtual Assistant, such as myself, to coordinate the creation of the site and maintain it for you.

MYTH #3 – You need lots of startup money

Not true. Once you start researching your options, you will see this to be a myth.  There are free tools out there that you can use to put something here. Remember, investing in your company is a must, but you don’t have to have a huge budget
