The Wellness Editor now offers VA services to women entrepreneurs in the health and wellness space.
Virtual Assistance and Content Management for
Women Wellness Entrepreneurs
Your health business is thriving. Hell yeah! That is music to my ears.
You’ve grown to the point where you can no longer do everything yourself. Pop the champagne, lovely lady! This is a milestone that many entrepreneurs dream of.
When it comes to outsourcing, content management should be high on your list. I’m talking about your website, mailing list, social media…all the ways you use words and images to send your message to your hungry crowd.
Looking after your content is:
- a critical part of doing business online
- a HUGE time commitment
- probably not the reason you’re in business – unless you’re a copywriter, copy editor or marketer (or even if you are) – and it gets in the way of far better uses of your time.
How relieved will you feel knowing that the content management side of your business is being handled by a reliable professional, saving you bucketloads of time and stress, so that you can get on with doing what you do best (even if what you do best is chilling the F out!)?
Oh, splendid soul, you sure are in the right place.
Content Alchemy with The Wellness Editor ~
A Signature VA Service for Women Entrepreneurs
When you sign up to my done-for-you content-management service, a major part of your message machine will be taken care of automatically each month.
Your 10 steps to accelerating your business and living your freedom lifestyle:
- You provide a blog post draft in a Word or Google doc.
- I’ll edit it.
- I’ll upload the blog post to your website
- I’ll source royalty-free and attribution-free images (or you provide your own).
- I’ll optimise your blog post for one SEO keyword phrase including title tags, meta data, image file naming and URL optimising (you choose your keyword phrase, or I’ll do this for you).
- I’ll format your post for readability and scannability (short paragraphs, subheadings, bold font, bulleted/numbered lists).
- I’ll publish your post (or schedule it for later).
- I’ll create and schedule social media posts to promote your new content (in your preferred scheduling software).
- I’ll add your new content to your newsletter or email blast (in your preferred email platform).
- We’ll rinse and repeat on a regular basis!
Then you can sit back and watch as it’s all taken care of for you.
(I don’t have to tell you how beneficial it is to post regular blog content and communicate with your audience, do I? I didn’t think so.)
This package is fully customisable. Don’t need every step? No problem – we can leave bits out. Need something different? We’ll add stuff in. We’ll tailor it until it’s exactly what you need…and we can change it up as often as you like.
Depending on your preferences, I can repeat this sequence once, twice or four times per month.
HELL YES – WHERE DO I SIGN UP???
Start by sending me a few details about your business via the Virtual Assistance with The Wellness Editor discovery form.
Not sure if Content Alchemy is right for you?
Your business not a cookie-cutout. It’s unique, and as such it may need something other than a blog-based content sequence. Fear not – I’ve got your back!
Ad-Hoc Virtual Assistance –
Flexible Help As You Need It
I also have a fully flexible help desk service so you can submit tasks to me whenever you need. In addition to or instead of my signature service, I can help you in ALL OF THE WAYS.*
(*Technically, some of the ways, but it’s good to get excited.)
As your VA, I endeavour to meet you where you are. What’s holding you back from taking your business to the next level? What’s keeping you small?
Once you identify those time-sucking tasks that are standing in the way of that sixth or seventh figure on your income reports, it’s time to outsource them to a VA who understands your business and is as passionate about your message as you are.
Here are some of the many supertastic tasks I can help you with:
- Inbox monitoring (email and respond to your contacts on your behalf)
- Newsletters and email blasts/broadcasts
- Social media scheduling
- CRM maintenance
- Database maintenance
- Website editing & maintenance
- Blog editing, uploading and publishing
- Blog post optimising (SEO)
- Checking/fixing broken website links
- Facebook community management
- Copy editing for websites, eBooks, emails, eCourses, newsletters, social media and projects of all sizes
- Content writing/copywriting for newsletters, emails, lead magnets and small projects
- File and cloud storage management
- Project management
- Diary/calendar management
- eCourse functionality testing
- Software integrations
- Content calendar brainstorming, management
- Create images for social media, blog headers etc based on your templates
- Member site management
- Source royalty-free and attribution-free stock images
- Write/create procedures and processes
- Add your business listing to legitimate online directories
- Helpful things you’ve never even thought of yet!
I adore technology and have had the pleasure (and, let’s face it, often pain) of using a truckload of platforms and apps over the years. Here’s a list of software I use and love:
- WordPress (I strongly prefer to work with WordPress websites)
- Hubspot CRM
- MS Excel
- MS Word
- MS PowerPoint
- Google Drive
- Google docs, spreadsheets and forms
- Google analytics
- Google Search Console/Webmaster Tools
- Google My Business
I’ve also had a little look-see into these platforms and I’m happy to explore them more:
- Zoho CRM
- Google sites
- WishList Member
- Ambition Ally
- Capsule CRM
How much is it worth to you for more time, freedom and income? How much is it costing you to keep doing it all yourself? What’s the price of never growing, expanding or reaching new heights?

Virtual Assistance with The Wellness Editor – What to Expect
- After you fill in this form, I’ll get in touch with you and we’ll schedule a chat.
- We’ll talk about your business, what you need and whether I can help you.
- If we’re a good fit to work together, we’ll create a monthly assistance plan customised to you. You may want everything done for you automatically, or a combination of planned tasks and ad-hoc help requests, or 100% ad-hoc requests (where you ask me to complete tasks as they arise).
- You’ll decide on a 10-hour or 20-hour package (scroll down for my prices) – valid for one calendar month.
- I’ll then carry out your tasks for you each month, using my time-tracking software as I go.
- Each week I’ll send you a time report so you can see how long tasks are taking and how much time you have left for the month.
- At the beginning of the next month, your time package renews!
- We’ll have a monthly check-in by phone or Skype to see how things are going and decide if anything needs to change.
Meanwhile, you’ll get busy scaling your business, leveraging your offerings, developing strategic partnerships, discussing joint ventures, nurturing your affiliates, writing your bestseller, creating your online course, crafting your vision board, tapping out your money blocks, chanting affirmations, batching your blog posts, casting your podcasts, pimping your opt-in, tweaking your sales funnel, fine-tuning your webinar, writing your million-dollar cheque and/or chilling out with a Seth Godin/Danielle LaPorte book and a green smoothie/cheeky wine.
Is Virtual Assistance with The Wellness Editor the right fit for your health business?
We’re right for each other if:
- You’re a woman with a wellness message, or you support other women in business
- You’d love an assistant who will grow with your business over time
- You want a VA with specialist skills who shows initiative
- You want a VA with heart and soul
- You are invested in your business but you’re ready to trust an assistant, delegate tasks that are holding you back, and be truly supported to reach the next level in your entrepreneurial journey.
Not only am I an experienced content and copywriter, postgrad-qualified copy editor and SEO-trained geekybum, I’ve been a Virtual Assistant in the holistic health industry since early 2014.
Until recently, I was offering content writing, editing and SEO for websites, and moonlighting as a Virtual Assistant on the side. I came to realise how much I love being a solid, consistent support for holistic businesses, so it’s official. My VA services are now available to YOU!
Not only do I have the ultimate combo of content-management skills…I freakin’ LOVE WHAT I DO.
You see, I’m a business owner just like you. As a solopreneur, I understand the triumphant highs and the heartbreaking lows of being in business. I get the importance of treating your customers and audience with uncompromising tenderness. And I know the late nights and weekends you’re putting into your passion project, because it’s not just a business to you – it’s blood, sweat, tears, heart and soul.
And I know that you find it hard to let go of the reins. Because how do you know who to trust?

My wish is that my work pushes your message further out into the big wide world, and frees you up to focus on achieving the next level in your important business.
- Because you have a healthy message to share, and I believe in it too.
- Because I get enormous satisfaction from helping women entrepreneurs achieve their business dreams.
- Because I’ve been doing this for long enough to know that I am a damn good VA!
“Having Gemma take care of our content allows me to relax a great deal, knowing everything we hand to her is so well tended to. Also, she is simply a pleasure to work with.” ~ Naomi Abeshouse, Red Tent Health Centre & Acubirth

We’re not the right fit if you need:

- Website design
- Website development
