WHAT IS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT?
Leverage a virtual assistant to increase productivity, save you time, AND money!
Alright, so you’re ready to change what you’re doing because you’re out of time or you’re stuck. So what is a Virtual Assistant and what can they do? If you have no idea what it is or how you would use a virtual assistant, this is for you.
You will need a basic understanding of how to leverage ‘help’ in your business before you can use a Virtual Assistant to their full potential. Every business owner knows and experiences how much work it is to grow a business. It can be excruciating laying all the ground work ‘in the trenches’ as we call it.
YOU DO TOO MUCH
You get your hands dirty, do your reconnaissance and put out all the fires. You wear every hat from technical, to marketing, hiring and customer acquisition – you do every email, video and phone call yourself.
It gets hectic, tiring, and you begin to wonder if you’ll ever see your ‘to do’ list shrink. Meanwhile, you try to prioritize all of the important things from the not so important. It’s not for the faint-hearted, and if you’re not careful, burnout is sure to creep in. Or for those unfortunates, it all hits you over the head at once; leaving you with feelings of self-doubt.
In the life cycle of your business, I’m sure you’ve found that there are several things you wish someone else could be doing for you. Well, of course!
FOCUS ON THE BIG PICTURE – GIVE US THE REST
In order to focus on the bigger picture and concentrate on the growth of your business, you sometimes need to bring your head above water. If you’re drowning in website design and stuck on social media, you’re not using your time efficiently as a business owner who desires growth and larger profits.
A virtual assistant is someone who can free up your time for tasks that grow your business and help make you money. A virtual assistant is like having a remote employee who works from a different location. They specialize in one or many skills and talents, and you turn these tasks over to them.
A virtual assistant can learn any program or tool and operates within the parameters you set. There is no limitation to the duties you can give a virtual assistant.
OUR VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS CAN LEARN YOUR BUSINESS
Another great thing about having the virtual assistant is that you can ask them whenever you need something done, within the framework of the hours established in your contract with them. This means that you don’t have to hire a full-time or part-time employee, which could be a waste of resources. There’s no hiring or firing; it’s as simple as utilizing the service as you need to.
Enter in the virtual assistant. Once you own the fact that you cannot do it all yourself, and you wish to grow and make more money you can now reach out to the experts in the areas where you need help. There are several tasks that are common to the majority of businesses that can easily be handed over to someone who can be dedicated to those areas.
