Tell me a little about your business…
We are the largest network of virtual assistants in Australia with over 7000 members. We have been operating for 10 years and provide training, mentoring and support
What brought you to Simplero?
I wanted a system that worked seamlessly to automate membership subs, access and online sales funnels with little need for training of operatives. Other systems were either too complex or didn't integrate enough. Was able to transfer my data with little fuss. Did a happy dance when I found Simplero
How have you integrated Simplero into your business?
Built sales funnels. Created learning portals and online courses, several membership sites and online shop. I have replaced 3 pieces of separate software with Simplero
How has Simplero benefited your Business?
Improved tracking and monitoring. Increased sales. Better responsiveness. More items for sale and new membership options. Sales funnels that took weeks to set up now take an afternoon
What's something you've learned in business you'd wish someone had told you when you were starting out?
Buy traffic, don't depend on getting free traffic only
What's a fun fact about you that someone would never guess?
I am a chronic cheater at board games and I hate WordPress. I know you asked for one but I had to cheat lol

I've enjoyed learning more and more about the incredible depth of Liz herself and the amazing array of services she can connect me with through her growing 'army' of highly qualified Virtual Assistants.
I've had Liz organise two different Virtual Assistants whom now provide an integral service to my business and will definitely be using Liz to find more as my business grows.
