See what some clients that have already worked with me have to say...
Jo-Anna has been supporting my business since October 2014 - initially with Infusionsoft email marketing support and now, primarily, with sales and marketing. Jo is an expert in building automated email marketing campaigns and sales funnels and has helped me build and execute campaigns for webinars, book launches, live events, online programmes and memberships communities (including Facebook ad campaigns). She is also an excellent writer, which means I've been able to get her involved in writing the copy for email marketing campaigns, sales pages, ad campaigns, social media updates & more. She is knowledgeable across all the key social media platforms and assists with content creation, scheduling and community management. She also has a good working knowledge of Wordpress and helps create and promote the content on my blog and podcast. She also manages my diary and email. I can honestly say I've never worked with anyone so hard-working and multi-talented. Whatever you ask her to do, she can turn her hand to - if she doesn't know how she makes it her business to find out. You can borrow her, but please give her back!

"I have been using the services of Jo-Anna Francis for about 5 years now and the main functions we call upon her to help us with are:
• Placing newsworthy items and our adverts onto Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and other social media platforms
• Writing our blog posts
• Advertising job vacancies in a cost-effective way
• Writing our weekly emails to our customer base
• Managing our customer database
• Managing various marketing-related statistic reports I require to help me judge the effectiveness of our campaigns
Jo always produces her work on time, every time and now knows our business so well that she can work on a minimal amount of direction.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo to others…if she can spare any time!"

"Jo-Anna is an extremely experienced sales manager who is now bringing her talents to providing a VA service to small businesses. Jo-Anna has been a significant help to my business this year. She is reliable, creative, trustworthy and incredibly well organised. The breadth of services she is able to provide are ideal for an SME and I look forward to using her more in the coming months. Every business needs a Jo-Anna!"
"Jo has had a huge impact on my business. We got chatting at the Kent Independent Trader Awards, when she won Start Up Business and I won Tradesperson of the Year. When Jo explained to me the impact a social media strategy could have on my business, I was keen to get started. From there she has set up and managed all of my social media accounts, which have proved to be a constant source of new business. Over and above that, her marketing and administration service have been invaluable, from writing new copy for my website to job descriptions and marketing letters. If you need some assistance with your business, then I thoroughly recommend you get in touch with Maidstone Virtual Assistant."
"Maidstone Virtual Assistant offers a dedicated service and always undertakes thorough internet research in order to give me appropriate business advice and guide me in the right direction. Jo-Anna personalises her offering to be able to manage the various issues that I need dealt with. She easily understands my requirements and delivers results on time. Maidstone Virtual Assistant has provided comprehensive and credible business correspondence for me covering a number of areas and tackling a range of issues, all of which Jo-Anna has managed to assist in sorting out. I have utilised the services of MVA to resolve a number of issues, which might otherwise have resulted in needing to instruct a solicitor, therefore the cost saving to the business has been highly valuable. The work you are doing is spot on, keep it up!"

“Having decided I needed assistance launching my London based business into the Kent market place, I contacted Maidstone Virtual Assistant (Jo-Anna Francis). Jo-Anna was very quickly able to understand the broad principles of my business, despite it being an industry she had not previously worked within. Jo-Anna knows how to ask probing concise questions to ascertain the relevant information and has undertaken all of the sales and marketing tasks requested and much more. She has dealt with all tasks with amazing efficiency and courtesy, and has become an asset to our company that we now couldn’t manage without. Jo-Anna has the initiative to identify additional areas of work she can take on, requiring minimum input from me, thus providing me with more valuable time to focus on my own everyday tasks. Jo-Anna has a very positive, can-do attitude and comes highly recommended. Maidstone Virtual Assistant is definitely the company to contact if you know you can't do it all and you need additional assistance to create more time to concentrate on what really matters in your business.”

"As a creative company we really needed someone who understood marketing and Jo's background was perfect. Her attention to detail is staggering and this combined with a 'can do' attitude to communications technology means she is quickly becoming a valued member of the Bang Anderson team".

"Jo has only been working for me for a short time, but already has shown herself to be an outstanding support and an intelligent self-starter. I like the people working for me to use their own initiative so that when you ask for something to be done, they come back having done more than you expected or asked for. Jo is one of those rare individuals!"
