When 40A. joins your food blog’s team, you get so much more than a virtual assistant. In addition to a highly qualified assistant, you get regular content and traffic analysis from brand developer turned full-time blogger, Cheryl with 40 Aprons. We’re all there to help support you and grow your blog, while taking the tasks you don’t love off your hands.
Social media marketing, SEO, copywriting, and media editing support but so much better. Our agency of food blogger virtual assistants lets us offer almost any service you could possibly need, but with a unique management and accountability. You don’t have to train your VA or make sure she’s up to date on best practices; we’ve got you covered. You don’t need to feel awkward about approaching your assistant when you want something changed or are wondering if you’re getting the right results; you come to us!
Sounds great but uh, expensive? Our rates are, at minimum, very competitive, and very often cheaper than independent VAs! Discover food blogging the way it should be: do what you love to do, and let us do the rest.
You know the things that support your business: great content, solid relationships, and engaging social media. By hiring a food blog virtual assistant (that would be me!), you can focus your time on the best parts of those high-value activities and leave the rest to me. That means no more full days spent answering emails, providing tech support to ebook and course customers, pinning new posts, embedding Amazon affiliate links…
Facebook and Pinterest content scheduling, user engagement, social media strategy. Whatever you need, we've got you.
Whether it's editing your video footage, photographing your recipes, or editing your podcasts, pass off the media grunt work to your VA.
Updating old posts for SEO, keyword research and analysis, and SEO strategy. Get those organic visitors!
From developing relationships with brands to prepping your site for a book launch, we can build flexible hours into your project. Finally check those boxes off on your to do list!

Drawing from her experience in brand development and management, as well as her work as a food blogging coach and full-time food blogger, Cheryl offers a context and top-level strategy to any project that helps 40A. clients grow their platforms. It’s more than just ticking off boxes; it’s creating a team, a vision, and a long-term growth strategy.
