Super Easy Task Instructions for your Virtual Assistant: Podcast Guest Outreach

Delegating the task of podcast guest outreach to your virtual assistant (VA) can pose challenges, particularly when articulating specific requirements and expectations. Miscommunication during this process may lead to missed opportunities and a lack of enthusiasm for bringing diverse voices to your podcast.

Consider a situation where unclear instructions result in outreach efforts that don’t align with your podcast’s vision. Misalignment can lead to missed opportunities for engaging conversations, leaving you frustrated and your podcast lacking the variety it deserves. It’s time to streamline the process and ensure your VA comprehends your outreach goals clearly.

In this blog article, we guide you through the process of assigning podcast guest outreach tasks to your VA, offering detailed instructions to minimize miscommunication and maximize the success of your outreach efforts.

What You Need to Prepare:

Before delegating, gather the essential information to empower your VA in conducting effective podcast guest outreach:

  • Target Guest Criteria

  • Podcast Theme and Topics

  • Outreach Strategy

  • Suggested Guest List

  • Additional Details

Note: If providing references or attachments with a heavy file size, reduce/compress the file size before sending to your VA.

What to Send to Your Virtual Assistant:

Working alone in your business?

The business that you were so passionate about when you first started...but lately, you've been feeling like it's swallowing you whole.

Because, if you didn't turn the wheels in your business, who will?

Your free time must be disappearing as you work on email backlogs, unanswered social media DMs, video/podcast editing, client onboarding, and a BAZILLION other tasks you hardly have time for.😢

This is usually what happens when you have no team to back you up.

You probably had a solo virtual assistant in the past, but it didn't work out because you didn't have a task delegation system yet.

Maybe your virtual assistant needed you to train them, but you just didn't have the time and the mood for hand holding. You need someone who can hit the ground running!

Or, it could be that you did find an amazing virtual assistant, but they couldn't take up the huge load of work. It was too much for one person to handle.

So they quit on you, and now you're back to square one. 😭

It's important for you to know that

this is NOT your fault. 🙅

You are just trying to build your business empire. 💰

Because you've had so much business coming in, your task load is also growing at a rate
that you can't keep up with anymore. 🚀

So, how would it feel if you had an instant ROCKSTAR TEAM?

A team you can assign some or ALL of your tasks to? 🙋

A complete crew of virtual assistants that already had a task coordination and team management system in place.

All that's left to do is
and the team will follow your footsteps.

With your business operations delegated to the 8point8 Virtual Assistant Team
you can have MORE TIME to be inspired & creative!

You can finally claim back your time freedom.
