Are you a solo entrepreneur or small and medium-sized business owner who:
- Is struggling to get the day’s tasks done?
- Feels like your business is running you, rather than the other way round?
- Spends more time on the non-essential tasks than on the most important ones?
- Is too busy to take a vacation, pursue new hobbies, or enjoy some rest and recreation?
- Always feel stressed out at work and burned out at the end of the day?
If so, then it’s time you learn how not to do everything, and instead delegate the tasks – the ones you dislike doing – to an expert you can trust. In your case, outsource to a competent and trustworthy virtual assistant (VA)?
What does a virtual assistant (VA) do?
A virtual assistant (VA) is a professional whose job functions are similar to those of a personal assistant (PA) to company managers and business executives. However, unlike the PA, the VA performs their duties from a remote location and through the Internet, hence the job title.
Virtual assistants are never required to be physically present at their employer’s’ work base, but they need to be at their side at every click. A VA can communicate with their employer with the use of email, web chat, voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and videoconferencing. Sometime, they can even connect through long distance call.
The benefits of hiring a VA
Availing yourself the services of a VA can prove extremely beneficial to your business, bottom line, and most importantly, your sanity. By outsourcing a number of your tasks to a competent VA, you can focus on growing your business, improving your products and services, and providing exceptional customer service.
The important benefit of outsourcing to a VA is savings on both time and money. By outsourcing to a VA, you completely eliminate time-consuming and tedious tasks, simplify workplace structure, and free yourself from the stress of administrative and other workplace hassles. Furthermore, you reduce operating and overhead expenses, thus saving money on office space and equipment, which you can divert to important projects.
What tasks you can outsource to a VA?
Outsource tasks that you find to be time-consuming and less exciting. You can outsource nearly any task to your VA. However, they can’t brew and bring you coffee.
Some of the tasks that you can outsource to a VA includes:
- File management
- Basic report and presentation creation
- Data entry and transcription
- Project management
- Customer/client service and follow-up
- Booking and calendar management
- Research and data-gathering
- Basic bookkeeping
- Social media and blog management
