The most successful online method that has worked best for me is having a personal website, keeping it updated with fresh content.. By doing this, over time you will see some great results.. It just takes time to build and you have to be very consistent.

I work my business every day doing some of the following things..

Google Adwords
Direct Mail
Social Marketing And Forums
Linking Strategies And Banner Ads
Free Search Engine Listings

I'm with Teresa. I do a little bit every single day. I try to write a few articles each month. I try to add new content to my site each month. I try to post on message boards. I try to place ads on sites that I believe compliments what I sell. Every day I do a little bit :)

By far my biggest source of clients has been networking. After that I've been found by a number of clients who did a google search for virtual assistant and found me.
