Anyone can use a virtual assistant, you don’t have to be in business to use one.
When you are starting your own business, you are it. From running the business, taking care of all the admin, bookkeeping and marketing.
Once business starts picking up and getting busier, generally most small business owners are still wearing all hats in the business. For some its just a matter of finding the time to get the help and others think they still need to employ someone, but don’t have enough work or hours to justify this.
Why keep doing it all when you don’t have to?? You don’t have to employ anyone to get the admin help you need. A virtual assistant is the ideal solution to get your admin tasks completed and kept up to date on an ongoing basis or when required.
Virtual assistants work from their own office, some will work from your office and they only charge for the time spent on your job and you don’t have the extra costs of paying taxes, sick leave, holiday leave, insurances, office equipment and etc.
Before engaging the services of a virtual assistant, make a list of what you need doing. Most virtual assistants offer general admin work, but others also specialise in different areas such as social media, virtual reception & blog publishing. Therefore its important you have a clear idea as to where you need the help.
Once you have found the right virtual assistant for you and your business, it will give you more time to work on your business which in turn generates more income.
If you run a large organisation, have you thought about using a virtual assistant during busy times instead of a temping agency?? Don’t forget when you use a temping agency there are minimum hours, not with a virtual assistant.
Individuals can use virtual assistants too!! Not everyone is a whizz on the computer, if you have a letter, documents or a resume to be typed, a virtual assistant can also assist you.
