Are you feeling overwhelmed in your business? Are you wearing so many different hats that you feel like you’re on a hamster wheel with no way to get off? It may be time to hire a virtual assistant.
Virtual assistants started showing up in the late 90’s when the dot com boom was rising. They are skilled administrative and technical professionals who typically work on a contract or hourly basis.
Fast forward to today, and entrepreneurs are hiring virtual assistants at higher rates than ever before. Virtual assistants provide a variety of services that range from general administration, bookkeeping, to social media management and video editing. All this from the comfort of their own home. What does this mean for you the business? You don’t have to pay for fringe benefits, rent office space, or buy office equipment. This saves the business anywhere from 30-50 % each year. This allows the Virtual Assistant, as an entrepreneur, to set their own hours and policies. It’s a win-win for both parties.
Many virtual assistants stick with general administrative tasks, such as email management, calendaring, appointment setting, customer service management, correspondence, phone calls, and travel arrangements. Other virtual assistants choose to specialize in one area. This includes copy writing, video editing, website design, Facebook ads management, and managing social media accounts for businesses. Communication with a virtual assistant is conducted via email, video conferencing, and phone calls. If you are ready to free up some of your time, a virtual assistant may be a great option.
