How to Hire a Virtual Assistant

A first-timer's guide to hiring a VA. Free up your time, save your sanity, and focus on what's most important.

Created by Nick Loper - Entrepreneur, Author, Chief Side Hustler at SideHustleNation

"]

Students: 20528, Price: Free

This course will guide you through the process of hiring your first virtual assistant, starting with how to determine what tasks you can outsource, where to post your job, how to narrow down the applicants, and ultimately making the hiring decision.

Why Hire a Virtual Assistant?

In short, to save yourself time, money, and headache.

As a small business owner, your most precious resource is your time. After all, each minute you spend is a minute you'll never see again. A virtual assistant is an investment in reclaiming that time so you can spend your time more wisely.

You'll start by identifying your outsourcing opportunities, the tasks that someone else can and should be doing for you. After all, you need to be working ON your business, rather than IN it.

The Course Structure

The course is broken up into 8 video PowerPoint segments that follow a trusted process I have used to much success in my own business. You'll be able to get through the modules quite quickly, but there is some homework involved, including:

  • Tracking how you're currently spending your time
  • Finding which tasks you can get off your plate
  • Crafting and posting an attention-getting job description
  • Narrowing down your applicant pool
  • Testing and interviewing the most promising candidates

If you're finding yourself overwhelmed or burned out with your work, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. It just takes a short investment in time to learn the basics of hiring a VA, and some additional time to train them on your process, but the long-term benefits are huge.

This course is more geared toward hiring a virtual team member for ongoing business support, rather than for a one-off project; though much of the content will be applicable to both scenarios.

The Deliverables:

By the end of the course you'll have the confidence and skills to go out into the wild and hire your first virtual assistant.

Prepare for a new era of business growth and productivity!

Make CORN HOLE in VR!

Intended for absolute beginners, this is a guerrilla-style approach to getting a VR app up and running quickly, with very little peripheral teaching of WHY were doing any of it. Sections 1 + 2 don't involve any actual coding, and get you started quickly. Coding takes place in the (in development...my students co-producing with me left for summer break! The nerve!) section 3 and beyond.

I teach a high school "Intro to Programming" class, and I'm making this to help them, and maybe others at the same time. This is all recorded in my classroom, March, April, May of 2018.

I planned to resume adding to this course in Sept 2018 and Spring 2019 with more Graphical User Interface (GUI) development and some beginner level coding, but have shifted effort into making a more polished version of this course for Unity itself. It will also be free, and published on the Unity site around May 2019.

You should dabble in Unity beforehand, maybe try the "Roll-a-Ball" tutorial on Unity's website just to familiarize yourself with the Unity interface.

I will be using Unity software, version 2017.3.

Working in the industry without a huge amount of experience in this area, it was a great way to familiarize myself with topics in ongoing conversations internally and externally. Will be taking 201 to further my understanding.” - Jocleyn Armour

★★★★★ “It is advertised as a 101 course and it did exactly that and very well, touching on the building blocks of Digital Advertising and Marketing. Good job Ben.” - Jean C

------------------

Digital Advertising & Marketing 201

★★★★★ “When combined with Ben's 101 course, the two classes make for a thorough and well-organized primer on digital media today. Perfect for marketing people and agency folks (creative, account) who are not immersed in a media agency. It will give you a foundation for how digital media is structured, a clear explanation of the jargon and acronyms you'll hear bantered about, and a better understanding of the opportunities available. The 201 course goes into important detail about some of the key changes that have taken place in digital advertising recently. Ben explains the concepts clearly and succinctly. Definitely worth the time investment.” - Shawn E Fraser

★★★★★ “This course is amazing. I do affiliate marketing and always wanted to learn about programmatic advertising and this course me taught that. I completed this for an interview and the employer was really impressed by the knowledge I had. Hope there is another in-depth version of this course. Where he goes into ad platforms or ad servers and teaches the real world applications.” - Suryameet Singh

★★★★★ “Comprehensive overview...detailed!” - Kaithlean Crotty-Clark

★★★★★ "Being an advertising agency media planner and buyer, having this hands on information helps when we face a decision to go into the digital advertising space. Your 101 and 201 was extremely informative and truly like your overviews in a very simplistic explanation. Thank you and look forward to your future courses." - Diane Tody

Just bought the Insta360 ONE X and don't know where to start?

Then you are in the right place! I was exactly the same when I first got the ONE X in October 2018. Since then I have made 100+ videos with the ONE X. And spent 200+ hours filming and editing. But to get to this point, I have spent countless days honing my craft in 360, and made plenty of mistakes in the process. So I decided to make a crash course with my best knowledge to help you get started with the ONE X in no time.

Creating 360 Degree Virtual Tours from the Air? Most modern drones can help you capture 360 degree panoramic photos

Created by Richard L Charpentier - Website Developer and Professional Photographer

"]

Students: 599, Price: Free

Just to let you know, this class is geared toward those just starting out with 360 degree virtual tours captured with drones.  The hope is to help aerial photographers come up with innovative ways to present their drone captures, and to start thinking about creating unique 360 virtual tours.  For those who are familiar with this topic this might be a little too basic for you.

This course is a high level overview of creating 360 degree virtual tours with drones.  Students will get to see a finished aerial virtual tour created with a Mavic 2 Pro, and Kuula (for online display). They will also learn about the steps required to create usable 360 degree images for their own tours.

Students should note, they do not need to use the same drone used in this class, but they do need a drone capable of automatic 360 degree photography.  Many of the newest DJI drones offer some type of 360 degree image capture, and for older models 3rd party applications can also help capture images for creating a 360 degree photo.  Students should look into their drone features prior to attempting to create 360 images.

Students will also see a basic flight setup with the Mavic 2 Pro, a flight with the drone, and image capturing for a 360 degree photo.

Image editing and post processing will not be major subjects in this course.  There are many 360 degree photo editing courses out there for students, so we won't spend much time on that part of virtual tour generation.  This class is more about introducing the concept of aerial virtual tours and what you'll need to start building your own.

When students finish this course they should have a basic understanding of the tools they'll need to share 360 degree virtual tours for fun, and for profit as well.

"]

Students: 138, Price: Free

Extended Reality (XR) can improve client communication, speed up your approvals process, and save time & money with real-time rendering. It's not surprising that XR is becoming increasingly popular for architectural visualization. With several types of headsets on the market and a growing number of software integrations, it's hard to know where to start.

This course is for architects with little to no experience with XR interested in understanding how to begin working with these valuable new technologies. We'll start by defining XR, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR). We'll explore several possible paths to VR to identify the best fit for your current workflow. Paths include Twinmotion, Enscape, Unity, and Unreal. After spending some time talking about what makes a successful VR design, we will dive into client sharing. By the end of the course, you'll have a general understanding of your XR Visualization options and several resources to continue your learning journey.

About the instructor:

Lauren started drafting in CAD over 12 years ago for a small historic preservation architecture firm in New York City. After four years in architecture and no aspirations to become an architect, she found a new home in the Events Industry. Since then, she has been designing stages and environments for corporate events.

Lauren uses the latest visualization technology, including Virtual Reality (VR), to bring client visions to life. Though experienced in other visualization software, including Cinema 4D with V-Ray and advanced Vectorworks Rendering, she prefers the unique immersion VR provides. In 2017, Lauren founded Scenic Mentor, a free 3D & VR tutorial blog, to help other 3D CAD/BIM designers learn this valuable new tech.
