When you decide to hire a virtual assistant (VA) for your business, you might not know what to expect. How do you calculate when a VA works for you? What kind of work should you outsource? Are you expected to provide anything for them (equipment, software etc)? How is payment arranged? We’ve tried to answer all these questions and more for you here. Read on for more…
Time is a commodity often in short supply when it comes to business. There’s never enough of it, and finding more of it is no mean feat. Outsourcing tasks that aren’t central to your business yet are still required to keep things ticking along is a good place to start. Hiring an employee might be the first thing that crosses your mind. Someone that comes to work every day and carries out a variety of administrative-related tasks is bound to help reduce your workload. Yet what if there’s an alternative?
A VA will be able to carry out specific tasks for your business without the commitment or investment an employee may need. VAs are skilled professionals and are able to carry out a wide range of administrative tasks. They can help with email management, scheduling appointments and even take care of the customer service side of your business.
The main difference between using a VA and an employee can be summed up in one word – flexibility. You have lots of choice when it comes to hiring a VA, starting with the particular VA you decide to go with.
A VA will work closely with your business in order to understand how it works and how they can help you both effectively and efficiently. When running a business you should be able to concentrate on the parts that make the business what it is. Delegating non-essential tasks to a VA is a smart way to save time, stay in control of your budget and help your business grow and become bigger and better than ever.
