The pandemic and the predictions of recession has small business owners worried about the future. Working remotely is a new model for many; and this has it’s challenges and complications.
Did you have days where you just don’t get to everything you need to before Covid 19 put businesses at risk? Are you feeling overwhelmed and stressed because you are spending too much time trying to run a virtual office? Do you need extra help and processes for working with a virtual team?
You may not want to make the commitment of having to hire a full time employee, but you desperately need help with planning and positioning your business for the future.
If this is you, then hiring a virtual assistant is your answer!
I actually had a new client the other day ask me this very question. I couldn’t help but chuckle because the Virtual Assistant concept, although already known by many companies and industries throughout the world, is still also a fairly unknown concept for many business owners. A virtual assistant can be defined as an independent contractor who provides administrative services to clients while operating outside the client’s office and who can access planning documents remotely.
Like any other employee you would hire, virtual assistants have different skills sets. Some are admin superstars, other are creative geniuses when it comes to putting together marketing content for your business and you even get those number crunching enthusiasts that are ready to come in and make your month end look like a walk in the park! Pretty awesome hey?
Still not convinced…
If your still not sure a virtual assistant would be right for you, here are some reasons why a virtual assistant is a good idea…
- Less investment – Yip, you read right! No office space and equipment will save you a considerable amount of money
- Saves Time – Recruitment requires time and money. A virtual assistant will be available as soon as you need them for as long as you need them.
- Reduce Expenses – Again no office staff requires no fixed monthly salary and benefits, you simply pay for the work done by the virtual assistant.
- Peace of Mind – While your Virtual assistant works in your business doing the things you simply don’t have time to or don’t know how to do, you are able to use your time focusing on what’s important to you. Giving you freedom of time and peace of mind that things will get done.
When you take the risk to start a business you put a lot of time and energy to make it a success. You’ve done so much already, so now it’s time to show yourself and your business some love and hire a virtual assistant that will help take your productivity and business to a whole new level.
